Gemma's First Birthday | Bath, NC Photographer

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Happy First Birthday to adorable Gemma! She was so cute and sweet for her first birthday photos this past week in Bath, NC. Her big sister Payten was absolutely precious with her! What a sweet big sister, she is! Payten had her 8th birthday recently, so a very happy birthday to Payten too! :) 

I loved doing these photos for this beautiful family! I shot Ashley and Rhett's wedding a few years ago, and always enjoy working with them! I was thrilled to get the chance to do these family / first birthday photos for them! I have known Ashley since I was in Kindergarden, and it's so awesome to see her as a precious Mom with her beautiful, happy family! 

My talented friend, Allison of Vanilla Bean Bake Shoppe in Winterville did Gemma's cake! It looked beautiful, and I know it was delicious as always! 

Also, special thanks to Gemma and Payten's "GiGi" (Gennia) for helping get some great smiles out of them early in the morning! :) If you haven't already, be sure to check out Gennia's store and restaurant in Washington: Nauti Life and Down on Main Street! Both are awesome! 

Happy First Birthday, sweet Gemma!

Family Photos at the Outer Banks | Breast Cancer Awareness | Outer Banks Photographer

Monday, September 15, 2014


Around a year ago, Brandi had reached out to me to schedule 6-month portraits (she was pregnant with Austin at the time) and family portraits for September 5 at the Outer Banks. Little did we know that their family would go through so much, and these photos would be so meaningful right at this time. Earlier this year, her Mom, Wendy, was diagnosed with breast cancer. Now Wendy is almost halfway through with her cancer treatments, and is a true inspiration of strength, faith, and courage to those around her! Wendy, I am praying for you, and cheering you on! I am confident you can beat this! 
It was a blessing to me, just to be able to be around this sweet family, and feel the love they have for each other, and the faith that is getting everyone through. 

Handsome little Austin (whom you may remember from our newborn photo session) is 6-months old now! You can tell he is so loved! He was absolutely precious for his 6-month photo shoot! We wanted to get plenty of him at this stage, and also use the time to get plenty of family photos as well. I’m so grateful that I get the opportunity to work with such special, amazing people. And I absolutely love being able to capture these memories for them to keep forever as well. 

Thank you for visiting! Here are a few of my favorites from their session:
