Now that we are approaching November (crazy!), I thought I would share a little pregnancy update with some questions I get a lot, along with sharing the details for my maternity leave.
When is my Due Date?
I am due December 26th (yes a little Christmas baby) so I’m 32 weeks pregnant tomorrow!
How am I feeling?
For the most part I’m feeling good. I’m starting to slow down a bit and after a day of shooting, I can definitely feel it. I’ve been having a lot of round ligament pains and frequent Braxton Hicks each day. At my appointment last week, baby boy sounded healthy, and for that we are super thankful!
Do we have a name picked out yet?
Yes, we do! But we aren’t sharing it publicly until he’s here!
Am I accepting any more sessions this Fall?
No, I am actually booked for the rest of the year. I am so sorry to those of you who haven’t been able to schedule a session with me this Fall. I hate letting people down but I am happy to provide recommendations for other local photographers while I am on leave if you’d like to email me.
Will I be taking a Maternity Leave?
Yes, my last sessions wrap up towards the middle to end of November. I will spend the rest of November and December wrapping up editing sessions, and then spending time preparing for Baby Miller’s arrival! I will still reply to emails, phone calls, etc.. through the first few weeks of December, but then I’m officially on maternity leave from December 15th until March 1st.
Can I book a session for the spring while you’re on maternity leave?
Absolutely! During maternity leave I will still be booking 2018 sessions, but will have an email auto-responder up so expect a much slower response. I do not plan to check emails for the first few weeks after he’s born, so keep that in mind.
What if I know now that I want to book a session for March, April or May 2018?
Spring time is generally super busy for me, so if you want to schedule your session before I go on maternity leave, go ahead and email me to ensure your spot!
Will I be having Spring Mini Sessions in 2018 like I normally do?
I will but they may be a little later in the spring next year. Being a new mom and juggling his and my schedule is something I’m going to have to learn, but I will post all of the details when they roll out in 2018.
How you can find out more about my pregnancy progress?
Thank you so much to everyone for all of your support! I am looking forward to welcoming a new arrival to our family.

Stephanie and Tim are two people that when looking at them interact, you can tell they love each other deeply. I had many occasions to get to know this sweet couple and their families before the big day, and I must say they are amazing. You can tell they each care so deeply for one another. There were so many great moments from this sweet day, but one of my favorites was when I had Stephanie and Tim by themselves after their ceremony. Those first sweet moments as husband and wife- there’s truly nothing like it. Congratulations y’all!

I’ve enjoyed getting to know this sweet family the past couple of months. Isaac is 10 months, so for his session, we met at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC. It was such a pretty morning with beautiful lighting. I love this family and their beautiful kiddos. Can’t wait for our sessions in November! <3
I had so much fun with Isabel last weekend for her senior session! She is such a fun, beautiful young woman with a great smile and laugh! Can we also talk about these amazing curls?!? She totally rocked her senior session.

It’s been a while since i’ve written on the blog, so to kick it back up, I have this beautiful family I photographed last weekend! This sweet little baby is 2 months and has such a calm temperament. She was awake for most of the shoot, but I caught a few when she dozed off. Enjoy these images of this precious family!
So you have booked your fall photography session with me (YAY!) but now the hard part…. ‘WHAT ARE WE ALL GOING TO WEAR?!’ This is the number one question I get from clients!
If you had that thought, this post is just for you! Fall is such a beautiful time of year – the leaves are changing, the sunsets are gorgeous, and the lighting is perfectly golden! Here are some ideas for you and your family to look great in your upcoming fall photography session!
1. Don’t be afraid of color and patterns- mix them!
Long gone are the days of white shirts and khaki pants. Find colors you like, and then find clothing that will fit into this color palette!
Coordinate, don’t match! Mix and match colors so that everyone flows and coordinates.
2. Have fun with layers, textures and accessories!
Hats, scarves, vests, boots… all of these things can bring dimension to the photos (and also keep you warm!)
3. Think about your walls in your home- what kinds of colors would match your decor?
You will want your pictures to be on display in your home, so consider if you are drawn to bright and bold colors or neutral and soft ones. This will allow your photographs to blend in with your home!

There is just a feeling I get in my heart when I am around brand new babies. I love it. Everything about newborns, the baby smell, the fresh skin, the wrinkles…just love it. Bailee was no exception. What a sweet girl! She is the spitting image of her big brother, Ashton! I had such a fun time photographing this crew! Enjoy these images of this sweet family, energetic 16 month old and precious baby girl Bailee.
