Nikki and Rickie are a match made in heaven! Not even just because their names rhyme (although that’s pretty cool, too) but because they are just perfect together!! They have a farm! With cows! And adorable dogs! It’s awesome! 🙂     I actually knew Rickie from high school (I was a gym assistant for his […]

I love this little baby!! Except he’s not a baby anymore- he’s almost one!! I had so much fun chasing James around recently at his first birthday/cake smash session! He is the sweetest little boy with the brightest, prettiest eyes and he’s just adorable. It is so hard for me to believe that it’s been […]

I can’t even describe how much I loved meeting these two beautiful people recently! I got to take this adorable couple’s pictures while I was on vacation in the Isle of Palms, SC (right outside of my favorite city of Charleston). Courtney and Louis are the absolute perfect couple! They are SO comfortable in front […]

Isn’t this the most gorgeous little family you’ve ever seen?? Monica, Matthew and their 3 adorable kids moved to Virginia from Florida about a year ago. And I’m so glad they did- they are just awesome! I loved meeting them and getting to know them recently. The kids are all beautiful- like, magazine-beautiful. And obviously […]

I love this family! Yes, they are my family and I love them for that reason, but I’d love them even if they weren’t my family! They’re just that awesome. My family traveled to North Carolina a few weeks ago to visit the Morse family (Mark’s sister and her family). Rick and Deborah’s second child, […]

A lot of planning went into this session!! Donnie was the guy in charge and he scheduled this extended family session months and months ago. He had to coordinate with lots of people and that meant planning around work schedules, people travelling in from out of town, etc. And he did it!! But then… the […]
