{Adorable newborn squishiness!} – Camp Lejeune newborn photographer

I spent Friday morning with the cutest little newborn and her family! Newborn sessions are so terrible for my baby itch but I have to say, they are definitely my favorite sessions!

My monitor is down for the count until my new one gets here on Tuesday but I did a quickie edit on my iffy laptop so that I could get a sneak peek up for her doting parents. (In other words, don’t hold any imperfections against me, this isn’t a real edit!)

Isn’t she just perfect?!

What’s Your Story?

Storyboards are another of my absolute favorite products and these just came in, so I had to share them!

This storyboard just made my heart sing to see it! I was able to capture some of this family’s most poignant moments over the last year and they’re all here in one storyboard to be displayed in their home. It all started with Andrea’s maternity session, then led to the birth of her beautiful son Quinn, Quinn’s newborn session, and finally introducing father and son as Andrea’s husband returned from Afghanistan. The journey is all here in one glance and I love that about storyboards!

These are mounted on MDF with a striking beveled edge and a glossy coating over the entire image. They come with a keyhole mount so they are a ready-to-hang product!

An entirely different story can be told in just a few moments of beautiful simplicity, such as the stretch and peaceful slumber of a newborn baby.

It’s a bit difficult to tell on the above photo, but the black option has the same beveled edge.

Aren’t they gorgeous?!

So tell me, what story will go on your storyboard?

{Sneak Peek for a lovely family} – Wilmington Family Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of spending a Saturday evening with this beautiful family. The children are adorable and the love their parents have for them was readily apparent! I could have happily spent all day photographing them!

Z family, here is your sneak peek!

This was my absolute favorite image from the session! I literally said “Awww!” as soon as it downloaded!

{Little Anna} – Wilmington, NC Newborn Photographer

Miss Anna was part of my newborn casting call and I simply couldn’t have asked for a more perfect model.  Born at just over 6 lbs, she was such a perfect little peanut!   Ten cute little toes, ten dainty and long fingers, perfect pink pouty lips … just itty bitty baby perfection!

Here’s a sampling from her session!
