Herway Family // Tibble Fork Reservoir Session

I'm way excited for this post.

Guys, these are some of my most favorite people.
When Lara asked to schedule family photos before I left I was absolutely elated. Our last session was a dream, and I was eager to work with them again.

I spent the whole day leading up to our session emptying our house and stressing like crazy over our move to North Carolina.

I got in the car and met up with the Herways and instantly my day got better. Seriously, I'm not even exaggerating when I tell you how fun and wonderful they are. And if that's not enough, they're also naturally beautiful. I barely touched these photos. Take a look >>

Something Pretty II

I was blessed this summer. Immensely.
I had the opportunity to go on 2 backpacking trips, dozens of hikes, spend time with family (my 2 sweet nieces, my brother from CA, my baby sister who is practically my new best friend)

The music has been catchy, the sessions have been incredible, the grilling has been fantastic,
and the farmer's markets were bountiful.


I went to the farmer's market at Wheeler Farm with my mom, sister, and brother. We scored a delicious tray of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.

As far as berries go,
It doesn't get much better than this, does it?
Natural window lighting (the most glorious quality of light)

I was at 2.8 and 1/100th of a second. ISO 250.
Edited in Lightroom and sized and sharpened in Photoshop.

Beckham // Cake Smash

The Beckham festivities continue with a gloriously messy cake smash in honor of this little guy and his first year!

If it looks like he's having too much fun in these photos... it's because he was. So much fun he needed a little break, haha.

Enjoy!

Beckham // 1 Year Session

Can you believe it?? Sweet little Beckham boy is already a year old!
I have loved watching him grow into his spunky personality. He's one of the only babies I know that is all smiles all the time. And boy can he run!

I've said this over and over, but I'll say it again. I. Love. This. Family! They are some of the kindest, most gregarious, and genuinely FUN people I know! They make me excited to be a parent someday so that our kids can grow up together and be best friends as kids, just like Alex and I were :)

Beckham's first birthday is two-fold. We did a session on his birthday with him and his cute parents where we aimed for wild, fun photos that showed off his little personality. The next day I had the opportunity to photograph his birthday party and cake smash! So keep an eye out for those photos as well :)

Enjoy!
