Outer Banks Maternity Portraits | Couples Boudoir


Outer Banks Maternity Portraits

I was in heaven photographing these 2, well, 3.  They are so in love and over the moon about their new addition set to arrive any day!  We had been talking about doing a boudoir session but waiting until she had the most beautimus belly couldn’t have been more perfect!  Their home was a dream to shoot in, so many colors and different lighting to play with, everything from grown up to playful.

Kill Devil Hills Family Portraits | Bobo Family

14 Humans and 2 Canines

When I walked into this families Kill Devil Hills rental home I was greeted with so many smiles and excitement.  When we stepped on the porch everyone was all ready to be photographed, happy as could be and excited to have me there!  They all wore white and I adored the girls dresses!  We began by playing on their swing overlooking the dunes and the ocean and then we headed to the dunes and then down by the water.  We got shots of each family and each grouping of the large family in all three locations which was fun and the little tunas were so happy and cooperative!  They loved it as much as I did!

Memorial Day Weekend

Beaufort Family Portraits

We love getting to travel for our job, going to a place we haven’t shot before and seeing how the architecture, light and landscape is so different is incredibly inspiring and quite exciting! We so appreciate our clients having us come visit them in their homes!

We had the most gorgeous evening in Beaufort, NC over Memorial Day Weekend to play outside this families beautimus home! They have 3 adorable kiddos, their youngest, Claire, is just 6 months old.  The inspiration for their shoot came from the shoot of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in “W Magazine.”

We began inside while everyone was finishing getting ready and then came outside and they hung out on the porch and ran around the gardens and sidewalk without much direction.  We wanted to capture a “Day in the Life” of this family of 5.  I love that they had both of their flags hanging!

Chicamacomico Life Saving Station

Beautiful Nautical wedding on Outer Banks


Evan and Whitney are both divers and fell in love with the Outer Banks.  The southern beaches of the Outer Banks are just gorgeous!  Wide beaches, picturesque dunes- but quite a trek from the nearest major airport. A Premier Event did a phenomenal job organizing with Whitney states away!

The couple had an intimate gathering of friends and family join them at the Chicamacomico Life Saving Station in Waves, NC.  Evan is in the USCG and their rustic nautical themed wedding went perfect with the historic site and it’s museum buildings.  OBX Trolley shuttled in the guests to the ceremony.

Whitney got ready mostly by herself, which gave her a few minutes downtime to reflect and write sincere thank-you notes for everyone.


Whitney’s mom came up and sewed a Irish good luck charm into the wedding dress.


Everyone was holding back tears during the sewing part, but let them go when mom received Whitney’s gifts.  A beautiful card, inscribed hanky and a personalized book to read to future grandchildren.  As an avid reader to my own children, I was a bawling mess at the last gift.


Whitney’s brother has a French Bulldog named Toad that followed me around while I was shooting. He’s an older fella, but still has a bunch of charm he works on the ladies.



The ceremony took place on an old boat house at the Life Saving Station.  We had a perfect blue sky and comfortable temps.  You never know with a May wedding on the OBX.  It could be 40°F on Monday, and 80°F by Saturday.


Whitney was beaming when they were pronounced, ‘Husband and Wife’!
Dr. Dave Keller did a great job preforming the ceremony.


After the ceremony, the couple walked down under a full sword archway by the USCG.  The couple had to stop between swords and kiss before being allowed to move on.  A tiny swipe on the fanny completed the tradition.


Whitney’s mom and brother are so sweet and close with each other. Lot’s on snuggles, smile and happy tears after the ceremony.



The reception area had old lanterns, flowers, and barnacled bottles from a dive Evan did in Seattle. Currituck BBQ catered the event and kept everyone full and happy.

Renee Landry Events did an amazing job with flowers and lighting.  Whitney’s bouquet smelled divine!  The Jonny Waters band performed while guests danced under lanterns and stars.



Thank you so much for having me to document your day!

Congrats Evan and Whitney!!!

Sanctuary Vineyards

Fisher is ONE and full of smiles!  This little fella has brightened my year, getting to see his sweet parents for their maternity photos on the Wright Memorial Bridge when it was closed, his newborn photos at Island Farms in Manteo and his 6 month photos at Sanctuary Vineyards.  I have loved every bit of it!

We were going to do his photos at Island Farm again but these flowers couldn’t be missed!
