Meet Kelsey. C/O 2017 and student at Northeastern High School in Elizabeth City, NC. 

This sweet girl wanted a session that was totally different and vibrant. SO we traveled up to Norfolk, VA and explored together. Around every corner was a new gem flowing with artsy vibes.  She pulled together some AMAZING outfits and absolutely rocked her session! Kelsey’s mom, dad and little sister came along too. It was so much fun getting to spend the evening with them in a new location and photograph their GORGEOUS daughter 🙂 (Makeup by Crystal Colson of Merle Norman Cosmetics in Elizabeth City, NC)

My first thought when being welcomed into their Corova, NC beach cottage was how you could just FEEL the love, joy and happiness radiating through this family. Their connection as a husband and wife and the way they love on their little girls brought chill bumps to my arms on the warm September evening. Mom, Mandy, is an insanely talented photographer (Mudpies N Butterflies Photography) out of York, Pennsylvania. And through the amazingness of Instagram she contacted me to book a session. And what a blessing it was to meet, photograph and hang out with her sweet family! Enjoy some of my favorites from their session….

Meet Elaine Gray. C/O 2017 and student at Roanoke Rapids High School.

This AMAZING young woman not only has the ultimate cool girl factor with killer style and one ridiculously stunning face…but she has one TRULY beautiful heart. Get her talking about animals and her baby blue’s absolutely light up! You see, Elaine Gray has her heart set on being a veterinarian. She’s even volunteering at a local animal hospital and loving every.single.minute of it. 

She wanted a totally different look and managed to secure the PERFECT spot for her shoot thanks to some sweet family connections. We were able to do both urban and woodsy and had an absolute blast hanging with her mom and older sister (who is pictured below in some sweet sister shots). 

Enjoy my favorites from her session below…..

Meet Parker and Whitney. 

They met back in 2011 on their first day of college. Whitney said that Parker sat down beside her and asked a random question that she was positive he already knew the answer to. And the rest is history. He popped the question during a boat ride at sunset and of course she said YES 🙂 They both share a tremendous love for the water and Morehead City, NC and it is in this beautiful little coastal town where they exchanged their vows. 

Being there to tell the love story of their wedding day was simply amazing. And if you cry easy…go ahead and get your tissues. When Parker saw his beautiful bride walking down the aisle, he was overcome with emotion. It was THE sweetest reaction ever. We all cried. It is the reaction that all us girls dream our groom has but rarely ever get the blessing to witness. 

Enjoy my favorites from their day below….
