And what makes a stunning black and white portrait? Lighting Lighting is SO important! Light airy images and dramatic...

But, perfect shots in camera are not always possible.  There are so many factors that go into the perfect shot. Lighting, composition, expressions, angles, white balance…the list goes on and on. When all those things align...

Newborn Lifestyle Photography

This was a different kind of session for me – Newborn Lifestyle Photography isn’t usually my thing.  I do studio newborn sessions. But, this was a special session and I created my own kind of lifestyle session. My cousin, Jamie, and his wife were expecting twins!  They have two older daughters and were soon to...

“I’m Not a Wall Art Kind of Person” – Album Options

NPS Photography Album Options I hear this a lot. “I’m not not a wall art kind of person” or “We just don’t have much wall space for wall art”. I understand. With open floor plans in newer homes, wall space is very limited. And many people simply prefer paintings on their walls and smaller framed...

Pinehurst Family Sessions

My Pinehurst Family Sessions were a BLAST – except for the weather! Could we have had a wetter fall? Lots of reschedules, but I got everyone in! I did things a bit differently this year.  Four dates and four different locations.  I loved doing it this way. Clients got to choose the location they wanted...

Pinehurst Christmas Newborns

My Pinehurst Studio was busy with Christmas Newborns!  Lots of snow in January and February produced some cuties and it was my pleasure to capture them. Some of my clients combined their birth announcements with holiday cards, so I tried to incorporate a few pops of red. I have a Christmas baby!  My oldest was...

Newborn Portrait Photography Pinehurst

Newborns come in all shapes and sizes.  I mean, they are all little and oh so new, but their weights, builds and length all vary! Working in Newborn portrait Photography, I see it all! This little guy wasn’t so little!  He was a big guy with awesome cheeks and some chunkiness. However, he wasn’t too...

Urban Family Session | Aberdeen NC Photographer

A “city” can be the perfect spot for an urban family session. Aberdeen may not be a city, but it is the perfect spot! There are sidewalks, benches, colorful brick walls, fire escape stairs, and a train track that is not in use. (Please note that it is against the law to photograph on an...

Older Newborn Session

A phone call or an email from a somewhat panicked new mom…”I forgot to book a newborn session and my newborn is already XX weeks old!  Is it too late?” When doing Pinehurst baby photography my answer is ALWAYS the same, “No!” It’s never too late to capture a sweet new baby. An older newborn...
