an update on business and life

Goodness, friends! The past seven months since I last blogged have been a whirlwind, and as you can see, this site has been more than a little neglected. Becoming a mother and returning overseas turned my life as I knew it upside down, but now that I'm nine months in to life with our little guy, I'm ready to get back in the swing of things. Now, before we get down to the nitty-gritty and in case you were wondering what our sweet boy looks like these days, here's a photo from his most recent session with mommy :) If you'd like, you can find more personal photos and updates on my lifestyle blog!

First things first, we will officially be returning to North Carolina at the end of next June, so I will be booking events and portrait sessions taking place from August 2017 onward. I will be accepting a very limited number of weddings going forward, as it is of the utmost importance to me to give each client the care and attention they deserve while also being an attentive and present wife and mother for my family. If you are planning your wedding for summer/fall 2017 or later and would like more information, please get in touch

Secondly, in between moving from the U.S. to Germany, returning last fall, having a baby, and moving back overseas earlier this year, several events and sessions failed to make it to the blog. Over the next few weeks, I'm going to be playing catch-up and posting some of these beautiful memories, so stay tuned.

Thanks for sticking with me through all the craziness! Now go out and have a beautiful weekend!

Sweet Annie was the winner of a portrait giveaway as part of our modern black and gold styled shoot featured on Every Last Detail earlier this year, and I couldn't have been blessed with a more lovely and kind subject to photograph. We met up at the historic O'Henry Hotel in Greensboro for her bridal session back in August, and I've been (not-so) patiently awaiting her wedding date so that I could share these images. Annie had her classic hair and makeup done by the wonderful Carla White and wore a simple and stunning dress that let her pure beauty shine through.
