Camp Lejeune, NC Commercial Photographer

A while back I received a request to do some commercial photography for an upcoming article in Military Spouse Magazine, or MilSpouse, as it’s commonly known.

I was so glad I was able to squeeze the session in and got to meet this wonderful mama-to-be. She’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside!

This was the main feature, but you may have also seen the photo below in future promotions and issues.

Any military spouse will recognize the care package, customs forms, and the ever-present cell phone that goes along with deployments!
I also loved all of the photos on the refrigerator in the background, they really tell the story of their lives and loved ones.

Of course, I am a child and family photographer at heart, and I just could NOT resist her charismatic three year old daughter.

You can check in with Brittany as she navigates being a military spouse and mother to two young children during a deployment here!

Wonderful family. So happy for you that you were able to meet such family. Photography really is interesting because of the people you get to meet and the stories they are ready to tell through pictures.

“A new baby is like the beginning of all things – wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities.” -Eda J LeShan

I’m playing blog catch up again and I had to start off by sharing this beautiful baby boy.

He was a newborn photographer’s dream and slept like a champ, moving from pose to pose with minimal effort!

We wrapped up the session with the next pose and I think I heard a collective sigh from his
doting parents as they saw him snuggled in this little basket, wrapped and cozy.

It’s the toes and fingers that always get me.  They’re so tiny, so perfect, I can’t help but swoon.

Welcome to the world, little man!

Absolutely divine! I love a snug as a bug baby!

Gorgeous work, Stephanie. You really pay attention to detail and your talent just shines! I love this set. I love newborns!


Album Spotlight

A client recently asked for some album options, so I thought I’d post them here too!

First up is my favorite, our beautiful Deluxe Album.

The Deluxe is a press printed keepsake album featuring either watercolor or pearl finish on seamless, lay flat pages.
The pages are nice and thick and it makes an impressive album!

This is a 5×7 size album with an extra thick cover option.

This album is available in a variety of sizes, orientations, and cover options.
The cover options range from fabric to leather to a custom photo cover like you see above.
Isn’t it beautiful?

Next up is our Coffee Table Book

This is an 8×8 size featuring a linen fabric cover.

The pages lay flat, though there is a seam in the center so I would suggest individual rather than full spreads if an important feature will fall in the center.

There are a multitude of cover options for this book as well, including a custom photo cover.
I am not a product photographer, the photos really don’t do it justice!

Lastly for today we have our Matted Album.

This is a leather album available in black or brown.

This brown leather version is a 5×7 size.  A 4×6 size is also available, with up to 40 prints displayed.

The photos are presented in a classic black mat format, essentially framing them so that they stand out on the page.

The mats have a slight sheen to them, giving a timeless, luxury appearance.

The binding is high quality and the individual pages are nice and thick.
The matted album is our most economically priced album, yet still offers a timeless, quality presentation for your images.

{Little Gavin} – Wilmington NC Newborn Photographer

I’ve done it.  I’ve gone and fallen in love with newborns and newborn photography. So much so that I’ve decided to make it a focus of my business.

How could I not?  Meet Gavin.

How could I not adore the itty bitty fingers and toes, sweet sleepy smiles, and that wonderful baby smell?

I don’t think I could have timed this shot any better!

Clearly, I’m not the only one who adored little Gavin.
Isn’t his mama just gorgeous? You’d never know she’d had a baby less than two weeks ago!

Stay tuned for more newborn sweetness in the weeks to come!
