Greetings from the almost land of vacation time! 🙂  We will be out of the office until July 19th for our summer break. 

I plan on checking in from time to time, hopefully I will have some amazing images to share with you, my blog readers!  I will check my voicemail once or twice weekly so if you’re a client with an order pending I’ll be in touch.  As for new inquiries, please hold tight, I will be returning phone calls starting the 19th.  I still have some late July availability however only a couple of August dates remain!!

(is it REALLY almost the fall season?  Wow.)

I had the pleasure of hanging out with the gorgeous R Family last night.  We did a mixed urban/nature session and had a blast.  A sisters session is one of my favorite things to photograph and this session was certainly no exception.  A huge thank you to the gorgeous I and her sweet little sister M who I had such fun with.  On with the sneak peeks…

    Anytime you can get mom & dad with beer and clogs it makes for a good photograph.

    I love the depth of tone in your black and whites! As well as the whisper idea. Nice shoes on the beer photo and great DOF!

    I am taken back, The images you have here on your website are truly stunning.

The weather held out for us (thankfully!  I don’t think I’ll be that lucky the rest of this week!)  It was a bit hot & humid last night but still we had a cool time with the S Family for an urban session just outside the door of my Wilmington studio. 

The best part of my evening?  I got to meet little L finally – she is such a sweet beauty!  Thank you to her beautiful parents Amanda & Kyle for travelling from southwest of Morris for a Marmalade Photography session!

I loved little L’s outfits – the paisley made me happy and the denim jacket on the horse…well I’ll let you be the judge!

I was *so* happy to see these siblings late last week…some of my favorite images from last season were taken during their session.  The littlest guy is turning one and this session was for him (mostly) but of course his adorable big bro & sis made it into the act as well!!

    WHAT beautiful kids! Love your light here!

  • Gina Anderson - July 2, 2010 - 7:29 am

    I love the umbrella shot! That little boy is just so adorable, actually all these kids are adorable. Do you ever take pictures of not attractive kids?

  • Justin Pearson - July 16, 2010 - 8:56 am

    You made the most of that gray backdrop. I’m becoming a real fan of your work.

  • Chris Van Atta - August 24, 2010 - 7:09 pm

    Honestly some of the best child photography I have come across yet on the web! I am bookmarking you right now, thanks for sharing.Chris

With all the rain, I’ve been hit by reschedules galore!  This was almost the case for this session I’m going to sneak peek.  I first photographed this beautiful family a couple of years ago, I love working with these kids.  They are so kind, polite and sweet.  To boot they all have these amazing eyes, beautiful lashes.  I wish I could bottle beauty like that!!

Cynthia, I know you’ve been waiting – thank you for being so patient waiting for these images. 


fun kids photography

First a fun shot just for him.  He was such a ham this time around – I *loved* it!  I hart personalities!


Child photographer

I can’t believe what a big kid he’s become in the past year or so…


Professional photographer of kids

He has the most soulful expression, those eyes!  I need to rename the K Family to "The Family with the gorgeous eyes".

I think he thinks I’m a little nuts 🙂  The things I do to elicit laughter & smiles.

    These are fabulous! I love that they are having a session with older children. Seems there is a void in the middle years – but that is such an important time to capture, not only for the parents but for the kids’ self-esteem. And what a gorgeous family! Great job 🙂
