I took Amanda's portraits a little while back this summer and she loved them SO much she asked me to take portraits of her and her mom when she came to visit! Cheri flew all the way from Minnesota to see Amanda here in North Carolina. 

Despite the humid Carolina weather, we had a great time exploring E. Carroll Joyner Park and capturing those special moments between a mother and daughter. I hope you both will cherish the wonderful memories you made during the visit and these images for years to come! 

Here are a few of my favorites from their session!


I met Haley and Larry through my husband Ryan's family - Haley is Ryan's cousin! This sweet couple were engaged earlier this year and asked if I could be the one to take their engagement photos so OF COURSE I said yes! 

These two are exuberant! It was such a joy to be able to capture them in this way despite the *extreme* humidity and mosquito war zone we battled through. (I think I counted at least 14 mosquito bites...)

I am SO looking forward to celebrating their wedding day with them ~as a guest!~ next April and watching their love grow throughout the coming years. Many joyous blessings to you, Haley & Larry!


Jessica and Daniel are simply the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! Her sister had found me on Instagram and Jess immediately sent me an email asking if I could document her and her husband Daniel after their Sealing Ceremony at the Raleigh LDS Temple earlier this June. 

It was definitely a hot June morning, but the love between these two made this day so much more bright and beautiful. Many blessings to you, Daniel and Jessica!
