Little Ava is finally here and I’m getting a chance to blog her momma’s maternity session! I grew up with Scott right here on the OBX but met his sweet wife, Melissa, working weddings. They were expecting their first little babe and I was so happy they asked me to capture some maternity photos. Melissa is a fellow Lilly lover, and as a new(ish) mom myself I love getting to work with other expecting moms. We had a gorgeous evening at Coquina Beach and Melissa ROCKED her maternity session.
We had such a gorgeous day for Starr’s Nags Head Maternity Session! I absolutely love getting to photography maternity sessions because there just isn’t much that’s more beautiful than a mama-to-be! We bounced around throughout the dunes and water, and couldn’t have asked for better weather! It’s not easy growing another human being but Starr makes it look effortless!
It’s been a little quiet on the blog front this season because we’ve just been so slammed full of weddings & sessions! I’m finally getting a little time to catch up on some much overdue blogging. Heather & Brad were my first wedding back after little Cooper was born and it was such a great couple to kick-start my 2018 season with! These two are so sweet, as were their entire group that traveled all the way here so they could have their dream Outer Banks Wedding! Spring on the OBX can sometimes be hit or miss but the day could not have been more perfect! With the help of am amazing team of Outer Banks Wedding Vendors these two said “I Do” with the Atlantic Ocean as their backdrop! Anyone who knows me knows that I am *in love* with Duck Donuts – so you can imagine how stoked I was that in leu of a wedding cake they cut the donuts!

Kurt and Danielle hosted their Outer Banks Beach Wedding this summer on Hatteras Island. Tucked into the hills of the dunes, and surrounded by their family and friends, these two said “I Do” with the sounds of the waves crashing on the sand. They had a simple and sweet beach side wedding ceremony on what was a perfect day! Danielle wore a gorgeous dress from BHLDN and carried flowers by Floral Creations while Kurt looked so dapper in his suit courtesy of Bonobo’s. They even included a couple of personal touches – like having their friend, Bud, officiate the ceremony and shipping Georgetown Cupcakes for dessert. Immediately following the ceremony we photographed their family formals and spent some time capturing the love of of the new Mr. & Mrs. before heading back up to the cottage for the couples first dance and mingling with their guests! We loved getting to be part of their sweet wedding day!

I am so so so excited to get Molly & Kevin’s gorgeous Manteo Engagement Session on the blog! I met these two this past winter as they were in the initial planning states of their wedding and was thrilled they picked me to tell their love story! We met up few weeks ago for their engagement session in Historic Downtown Manteo and were blessed with some of the best weather we’ve had so far. I could not have hand picked a better evening with golden sunlight (my fav!!!) to be out photographing. I can’t wait for their Outer Banks Wedding this fall at the Village Beach Club in Nags Head!
