I was so excited to be asked to photograph my cousin's new little baby boy. Drew and Vaughan had me photograph them in the past for their engagement session and while attending their wedding I took some wedding photographs of them. After their wedding, they moved from NC to the deep south where Drew is a minister and Vaughan is a CPA. I'm happy that they come back every now and then to visit family. Little Sam needed to come visit his grandparents on the banks of Lake Tillary. While they were here I came out to photograph sweet snuggly Sam. Here are a few of my favorite images.

Life as a mother is filled with incredible joy and breathtakingly beautiful moments with my little Emeline. She has become a toddler with big opinions, little triumphs, and daily struggles as she figures out this big world. I could not have foreseen how wonderful she would be when she was just a hopeful idea for her father and me.

Jenifer and her daughter Ashley came up to Duke Gardens for one of my Autumn mini-sessions. Jenifer wanted pictures of her lovely and beautiful daughter Ashley who is about to celebrate her 13th birthday. Of corse I had to photograph Ashley's beautiful mother as well.
This sweet little guy is the son of my friend's Nikki and Craig. They came out to Duke Gardens for one of my Autumn mini-session to snuggle and play among the lovely changing leaves. The sessions were timed perfect for marking Finn's sixth month on this planet. Happy half-birthday little dude!
I have been lucky enough to see these little children of Katie and Andrew grow from babies to sweet children as I photographed Jackie's year old session and McClain's newborn session. They all came out to Duke Gardens for one of my Autumn mini-sessions this year and had a good time snuggling and running around together in the beautiful changing leaves. How wonderful!
Sweet Clara is my little Emmie's best friend. The love to play together on Saturday's when I'm working weddings and they both attend the same school where they learn to speak more Spanish than their parent's will ever understand. I was so excited to photograph her again during on of my Autumn mini-sessions and Duke Gardens. You may remember Clara's newborn session... she is just as beautiful and cute as she was as a tiny baby. She is such a joy to be around with her kissable checks and red hair - I love this girl!
My neighbors Joanna and Matthew met me at one of our many neighborhood gatherings here in downtown Durham. These two are engaged to be married and decided to sign up for one of my Autumn mini-sessions in Duke Gardens to get some engagement portraits taken. The location was perfect as their mid-summer wedding next year will be in these same gardens. These two are so sweet. I loved how both of them have an engagement ring and how the rings reflect their love of nature.

You may remember this little guy from his newborn session that I photographed last winter. Baby Dashiell has now turned one, and he and his family joined me a Duke Gardens for one of my Autumn mini-sessions. His parents couldn't be sweeter and more in love with their little boy. What a little heartbreaker he is!
