Paige and Kyle’s Neuse Breeze Wedding

This wedding was SO fun! Paige and Kyle are genuinely easy to photograph. They are always smiling, laughing, and have felt like old friends since the first time we met them last year! I truly enjoyed everything about this wedding! From the sweet ceremony, to the heartfelt toast, it was an all around wonderful day! Enjoy these beautiful photos (made possible by some incredible vendors!).

Paige Bridal Portraits

I love bridal portraits! Very few times will you get to wear your wedding dress, have your hair and makeup done, and be the queen for a day! Everyone needs bridal portraits! They are not only a trial run for the big day, but they are SO fun and I promise you will treasure them 10 years from your wedding day!

We did Paige’s bridal portraits on her families land around Gibsonville, NC. It was the prefect fall day for portraits! I love these photos and the sweet bride in them!

Newborn Photography

Over the last year I have shot countless newborn sessions. This may seem normal to you- “Becca you are a photographer, duh you have shot newborn portrait sessions a lot!” , but let me start off by saying I used to strongly dislike newborn portraits. Why? Because they are hard! Unpredictable. Tiring. A little stressful. All the things.

But then I just kept getting booked for newborns, so I decided to embrace it. I got new props. I worked on my baby calming ability. And I prayed that I would grow to see the beauty and joy in newborn sessions.

I’m writing to tell you today I LOVE NEWBORN SESSIONS! I really really love them. They are so special to me now. When else in my life do I get to go to someones house, hold their baby, talk to them, and capture their most precious and new possession?! Newborn sessions to me are a gift. I am honored every time someone ask me to capture their little one and I know as a momma what a treasure these photos will hold.

So all you new mommas, soon to be mommas, gonna be mommas at some point, I want to be your newborn photographer! I want to come in your home and capture moments that will quickly pass away. I want to hold and photograph your littlest and most precious treasure. And I want to help you in anyway I can, because OH HOW I REMEMBER THOSE FIRST FEW WEEKS OF NEW MOM LIFE! (text me with your Chickfila order, seriously!). Thankful to get to capture all of these sweet babies and families and here to say I’m proud, joyful, and truly excited to be a newborn photographer! Below are small samples of two recent newborn sessions!

Tulip Farm Mini Session

Does it get better then a Spring photoshoot with rows of tulips and baby animals?! These sweet photos have my heart. These photos were taken at Dewberry Farms on their tulip farm! It was pure joy (and a workout!)  to capture these kiddos and their families. If you are looking for Spring photos of your family I will be offering two Spring mini session dates on May 12th and May 20th and I have a few spots left for each date! You can get more info here. 

Enjoy these happy spring photos!

It’s time for Spring mini sessions! I LOVE spring portraits! The flowers are blooming and everything is green! It just doesn’t get much better. I’m offering two Spring mini sessions dates this year: Saturday, May 12th and Sunday, May 20th. The location of the sessions will be announced at the end of April, but will be farmland somewhere in Browns Summit, NC (about 15 minutes north of Greensboro!)

Below are the time and dates available for Spring Mini sessions! I am going to limit my mini sessions dates this year because of a very busy Spring! I can’t wait to see you guys in May and capture your sweet families.

PS… I believe that family pictures just happen to be the BEST Mother’s Day gift (and I do gift certificates as well!)

Maggie and Claire’s Newborn Sessions

I cry at most weddings, but y’all I really cry looking back over newborn session photos. I have issues (most of y’all already knew that haha), but really the preciousness of newborns just gets me.

For a little back-story on how this shoot came to be and what it taught me:

She text me to ask how much a portrait session would cost of her in her mother’s vintage wedding dress:  “I just wish I had thought it was cool when I got married. It would have meant so much to my mom, and I LOVE her dress!” She sent me a picture of the dress and I knew that this deserved more then an outdoor portrait session with a pretty old dress and sentimental photos that told the story of generations. It deserved to be made beautiful, celebrated, and to serve as a reminder that in age there is unique character, charm, beauty, and love that can never be replicated.

So often when we get engaged and married we get carried away with all the new fads that our wedding season brings. Whether it’s the mason jars and rustic wood, or the array of color bridesmaids dresses, it’s fun to have fresh new trends and ideas implemented into our wedding day. But this winter styled shoot gives nod to the beauty of yesterday. Our goal was to help brides see that sometimes the most beautiful and treasured parts of their wedding will be things that are already sitting right in front of them. Their grandma’s colored glassware, their aunt’s old brass candlesticks, a mother in laws veil, or maybe even their mom’s long sleeve lace wedding dress. When you look back 20 years from now at photos from your wedding day, what do you want to remember?

We hope these images spark a realization that it’s not “out with the old and in with the new”, but it’s a bit of new sparkle mixed with a bit of old lace makes for the very prettiest taste! Enjoy our “Mother’s Dress Makeover Rustic Styled Winter Shoot” shot using both the vintage medium of film and the modern convenience of digital photography!
