Published {Baby Lifestyles} Beach maternity session

Baby Lifestyles has featured Holly and Rusty’s oceanside maternity portrait session… I love finding my work featured on other blogs and publications!  This one was from this past summer; we had gone to North Myrtle Beach to document Holly’s first pregnancy, and got some gorgeous portraits of this gorgeous family.

Those of you who follow my blog may remember when I first posted this family, that they had -only days after this portrait session- found out that Holly has a very rare form of leukemia, but they were unable to do any further testing to determine how far along it was.  Thankfully, it is still confined to her bone marrow, and she won’t need any treatments for the time being.

If you haven’t read her story, you can find everything in her own words here, on her Caringbridge page.

sneak peek–portrait session in the desert

Some of you may know I headed for sunny Las Vegas this past weekend for a photography workshop.

While, unfortunately, I and the others who attended did not have a wonderful experience with the workshop as a whole, we did at least get to go out in the desert to photograph an absolutely gorgeous couple!  I’m not sure I can share the entire session at this time, but I did just want to give you a quick sneak peek! :)

Published {Chetola Resort, Blowing Rock wedding} Wedding Row Charlotte

I love Wedding Row Charlotte!  They are such a great resource for Queen City wedding inspirations and vendors, and Alicia, the editor, is super-duper sweet!

I’m always excited when they decide to publish anything from me, and I was thrilled when they published Ligia and Michael’s charming outdoor wedding, held lakeside at the Chetola Resort in Blowing Rock, NC. {I’m a sucker for the mountains, and Blowing Rock is one of my fave places to be!}

How can you not love a wedding with paddleboats, ping pong tables (with personalized ping pong balls), and a steel drummer??? Check it out!

Laura and Dennis {wedding} Lake Lure, NC

Laura and Dennis had very different views on where they wanted to be married.  Laura wanted to be married on a sandy beach; Dennis wanted to be married in the mountains.  They knew they had found the perfect location when they discovered Rumbling Bald Resort in gorgeous Lake Lure, NC.  Surrounded by mountains, they professed their love for each other on a gazebo on a sandy beach.

Their sweet little guy served as ring bearer, pulled along in a wagon, carrying a foot ball as a ring pillow.   He pretty much stole the show there for a while! ;)

Published {Biltmore bridal session} in Hindsight Bride

I haven’t posted any of my recently published work lately, so I wanted to catch up on these for you guys (in case you missed them! :) )  My gorgeous Biltmore Estate bridal session for Ashleigh was featured in Hindsight Bride!  They also did a great little portrait gallery.

Thanks, Hindsight Bride!
