    Danielle + Matthew | Asheville, NC | Wedding

    Jan 17, 2012

    There is something about photographing high school sweethearts. I think it may be because it amazes us all when such young, innocent love can grow, mature and even change with couple. Danielle and Matthew have grown up together, gone through college and are now starting their forever together.

    These two exchanged vows at the beautiful Crest Center and Pavilion in Asheville….their ceremony overlooked a breathtaking view of the NC mountains. The fabulous Kymm of Who’s the Fairest did it again – Danielle was simply radiant. Seriously. Go and see some of my favorites from Danielle’s bridal session HERE.

    It was extremely cold as the sun started to set…such a sweet photo of Danielle warming her hands in between photos. Now this must be love!

    How awesome is this cake? LOVE IT.

    Congratulations Danielle + Matthew! Thank you for having me there to capture your special moments!

    Meet Baby Ellie | Cary, NC | Newborn


    I feel very lucky and thankful that in 2011 so many families opened their homes up and invited me in to capture some of the most precious moments a family shares. I must say photographing, holding and playing with so many newborns and children is fun, refreshing and really puts life into perspective. As I have said a number time before, they truly are life’s everyday miracle. I absolutely loved this session with 4 day old baby Ellie.

    I am such a dog lover, so it is no surprise I was thrilled to have Lily join in for a few family photos.

    I met baby Ellie just after Thanksgiving so it was perfect timing to do a Christmas card + birth announcement in one…Is this not the cutest little Rudolf ever?

    Congratulations to the Dutta family on welcoming sweet Baby Ellie into this world!
