I’ve known Kathryn practically my whole life and was so excited to shoot Mary Kathryn’s newborn photos. The best way to describe Kathryn, is classic. She’s a sweater-set and pearls kind of girl, and I knew we’d want to keep MK’s session timeless . Keeping it simple and incorporating a few elements was key, but we did manage to sneak in a little fun…courtesy of Kathryn’s mom who found the adorable hat! She slept for me essentially the whole time, and is such a sweet baby.

This week I had a great time photographing Stevi’s senior portraits at Coquina Beach. It was overcast and windy, but she rocked it out, and had the perfect hair for the beach!! It looked awesome blowing in the wind. I also love how she brought a photo of her mom to include in the portraits – she would definitely be proud of the sweet young lady you are!
A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Jack & Michelle’s Hatteras Island Wedding. I’d recently gotten some super adorable bright pink parasols for another wedding, as a bridesmaid prop. Unfortunately, at that beach wedding it was WAY too windy to break them out. During the day Michelle’s sister/bridesmaid saw my parasols and knew they’d perfectly match the dresses her girls were wearing. Later that evening just before I headed home we broke out the parasols and took the twins outside for an impromptu session.
not so little anymore little sister is playing her first year of softball. It’s a Babe Ruth summer league and I couldn’t be more excited! I never thought I’d be one of those adults at the ball field. You know, the obnoxious ones you see scream, hoot, and yell for their team? I’m eating my words. I’m the first one to jump up and down when they hit the ball or scream when they make a run. Let me just tell you, for a group of middle school age girls, they can really play hard. I was astonished at my first game when they were stealing bases and sliding into home. They don’t mess around!
The common misconception with professional photographers is that we photograph everything. So not true. Everyone seems to have an area they specialize in, and for me, I’ve never been into sports photography – until now. I’m surprised at how much I’ve enjoyed photographing the games…and if I’m being honest…it keeps me quiet..haha. Concentrating on getting the shot means I scream less, which probably makes the coach (and my sister, who will one day die from embarrassment) happy.
