Gender Reveal | Fireworks

Baby BOY Page

Gender gender reveal

We love how Sam and Jarrod found out they were having a boy and at the same time revealed to their family and friends the sex of their beebster.  Her dad had an envelope from North Eastern OBGYN that said it was a boy.  He drove all the way to South Carolina to get fireworks, set them up on the dock by connecting all the fuses and taping them down and lighting.  He came back up the dock and got to enjoy the show as well!  He was the only one who knew but they had all their family and friends there watching.  Everyone took a glow stick for what they thought it was going to be, Emerson had pink.  Her reaction to finding out she was having a sibling at all was priceless and this reaction did not disappoint!  She stomped off and threw a fit, quite adorable!  A little brother it is!  I wonder if he will be getting painted nails anyways??

Sanctuary Vineyards Portraits | Alice is Walking!

Sanctuary Vineyards Portraits


This sweet little lady is a chatterbox and super curious about everything!  She recently learned to walk and is really enjoying her new ability – although, her brother may not be so happy with her being able to reach his toys!

We had fun playing in the field at Sanctuary Vineyards during the Crabdaddy Festival, she’s going to be running laps around the kiddos next year!

Sweet Love | Sanctuary Vineyards

Fun couple steaming it up on the farm

Alex and Trevor are so sweet and in love!  I had a blast frolicking all over the farm and vineyards at Sanctuary Vineyards in Jarvisburg, NC.  Sanctuary Vineyards is located just south of the Cotton Gin on your way to the Outer Banks. The fall colors and September sky are just gorgeous as we romped all over including the vineyards, corn fields, reeds and creek.  Alex and Trevor are just too sweet with each other!  I could have photographed them all day!

Outer Banks Vacation Portraits | Duck

OBX Family Photography

Outer Banks Vacation Portraits. 

We had a lovely time playing on the beach last night in Duck, NC with Riley and her family visiting from Alexandria, VA.  She has the most gorgeous red hair and outgoing personality!  Within the first five minutes of entering their beach cottage, I given a tour by Riley and shown all her neat things including the new Ariel kite and her dog treat for her pup back home.

It was a perfect windy day for kite flying, so we brought Ariel along to play too!  Nana and Poppi had a blast too and didn’t mind getting sandy and wet!

At three and a half Riley was full of ‘tricks’ to show me! Never a dull moment! It’s such a fun age to document and watch grow!  Outer Banks Vacation Portraits.

Thanks for playing!
