My favorite little toes just keep growing. Last night I had a moment of truly realizing how fast our boy is growing up. People say to soak it all in but no matter how hard I try I don't think I can savor these moments enough. I've always wanted to be a Mom but no one could've prepared me for just how much I would love this new role. #thankyouJesus #boymom
Man it feels good to be back in the mountains! Growing up here I got so used to seeing the beauty around me that I kinda forgot about it (terrible, I know) or maybe I'm just an adult and have a better appreciation for it 🤷🏼♀️. Either way, I'm so glad we can call Asheville home again. We've spent a lot of time on the parkway lately and we seriously compare the views to our time spent in Maui last year - and that says a lot!! Throw in a gorgeous couple and you have a photographers dream!
Friday was my first night away from home since we welcomed our baby boy into the world! I was able to capture a gorgeous wedding in Raleigh at one of my favorite venues @merrimonwynne - so it made things a little easier. On Saturday both my Mom and Mitchell kept saying, I don't know how you get anything done. Haddon is a little pistol! Well, you're not telling me anything I didn't know! Our boy is energetic, crawling and into everything! It's both fun and sometimes frustrating when you just need to get things done! Most days the house is a mess, I have spit up on my pjs I never changed from, dirty hair, cold coffee & I'm tripping over toys but most of all, I have lots of laughs and a FULL HEART. So early mornings will continue to be my hustle time. I'm glad they both see what it's like to be Mama + work from home + basically juggle the world 😆. It's not easy but it's worth it. I wouldn't trade my days at home with him for anything! Maybe I'll take more work trips since the hubs was extra appreciative and boy was he happy to see me 😂! #lovemyboys
You bring me more joy than I ever thought possible. Your smile melts my heart and your giggle is the sweetest sound I've ever heard. I wanna cuddle you for the rest of my days. I made you, but you made me a Mama! I love you so much, little boy. #ourfirstmothersdaytogether
Give me all of the windblown mountain top lovin 💕 . . . #ashevilleweddingphotographer #craggygardens #ashevilleweddings #ashevilleengagementphotographer #mountainwedding #ahatleybride
There are so many things in life I'm proud of and grateful for but nothing beats being your Mama 💙photo: @forageandfilm #firstmothersday #boymom
Mr. and Mrs. Wiles!! Yesterday was absolutely wonderful!! Joy & Blaine are SO loved by their incredible friends and family! These two stole my heart and I'm honored that they trusted me to capture their perfect day!! #girlgonewiles
This wedding was truly spectacular. I have so many favorite moments. I fell in love with Samantha and Billy's grandparents. Both being married for something like 50 + years and still breaking it down on the dance floor. The mother-son dance had my mama heart so full! Sharing more of this sweet wedding on the blog today! 💕
Our boy turned 6 months on Monday! He is on the move these days... already crawling and rolling over (again and again). He wants to touch everything in sight and is a BUSY BEE. He weighs 15 lbs and is 26 long! He is a thumb sucker and well, it's just adorable AND it soothes him so well! We love him more every day and just can't over this indescribable love!
sparkly shoes and lace ✨
This wedding was breathtaking and not just for the picture perfect colors, bouquets or couple - but the sweet families that surrounded Billy & Sam! Loved seeing both sets of grandparents celebrating 60+ years of marriage AND yes, still tearing up the dance floor, too! #inspiration
Still gushing over these bouquets!! The talent of @meristemfloral is insane 💐
Working with couples like Kayla and David are a great reminder of why I love what I do so much!! The love they share for each other and how they put Christ on display gives me all the joy!! So happy for these two!! 💕
