Our Sunset Beach, North Carolina Vacation

Sunset Beach is a sleepy little beach town in southern North Carolina and it holds such a special place in our hearts. It was our first vacation location as a family- I still remember bringing Emmie- she was just learning how to crawl, and we had the best time. We've tried to make it back down there every year since, so we were both so excited when we were able to make it happen again this year! This year, my side of the family came along with us! 

It's true- bringing a little baby on vacation is challenging- and even more so challenging heading to the hot beach, but it's so worth it! We prepared for the heat with a portable fan, a beach tent, and cooling towels, sunscreen, hats, and so much more! Our car was packed to the brim, and amazing memories were made! 

Our last night out, I finally pulled my camera out and we took some family photos on the beach. Sully was exhausted and wasn't in his typical cheery mood, but we made it work & I'm so thankful we did!

Lynchburg Family and Maternity Photographer || The Griffin Family

Photographing friends & their families are so special to me! I've been taking photos of the Griffin Family for a few years now- ever since she was pregnant with Hamilton, and it's always such an honor to document milestones each year and seeing how much their little one is changing! Jenn is pregnant with baby #2 now and due in March (yay March babies!) and is seriously just stunning! 

We met out at the Ivy Creek Park in Lynchburg, Virginia this week! It was the perfect location, with the sun setting, the gorgeous trees & lake! I need to remember this one more! They dressed all up for me and looked AMAZING & Jenn had a flower crown made by Foraged & Cut for some individual photos and I am obsessed! 

Thanks Griffin Family for always trusting me to document your family! I know it's cliche' but it really is such an honor when there are so many people you can choose from! Love you guys!! 

Lynchburg, VA Family Photographer || Gavin Family

I'm so excited to be sharing this family session with you today! The  Gavin family had me laughing our entire session- those boys have some big, fun personalities that is just so fun to see! I was SO happy to see the sun shining, the wind died down, and it wasn't too cold out for their Saturday morning session! They wanted a natural environment with some pretty trees, fields so I had the perfect spot in mind in Lynchburg, Virginia! 

Sometimes with family sessions, it can be difficult to get little ones to open up and smile, but oh my goodness we did not have that problem with these two cuties! They were wiiiiiiide open and we all laughed together at their goofiness! We got lots of photo options for them- ranging from the entire family, just Mom and Dad (something that's always needed!!), individuals of the boys, the brothers together! Oh it was a blast! I loved getting to know this family & know you're going to love these photos too!!

Lynchburg Family Photographer || The Offield Family

I cannot believe we're a week into November and just now hitting the peak of the fall colors! I'm not complaining though- it's so gorgeous- I just wish we could keep it around just a little bit longer! ;) 

I am so excited to share some photos from the Offield Family's Photo Session! I loved photographing them previously and that they made getting updated family photos done while they were in town! Krista ran the Mountain Masochist 50 miler the day before AND she freaking got first place. So, how she was standing the next day is beyond me, but she was there and looked amazing and wearing heels! Can we say super woman here? 

These kids have grown up SO much since I last photographed them, and oh my goodness did they have me laughing!! You know with all those boys there were some potty jokes mixed in!

Lynchburg Family Photographer || Smawley Family

Oh I'm so excited to share the Smawley's family photos! Kristin was our mortgage broker, and a HUGE  help to us when we bought our new house recently.  I was super excited when she contacted me needing some updated family portraits! Their family is so busy with football & work & life, so it's such an honor they took time off to spend with me for their photos! 

We met up at Sweet Briar College- which is such an amazing gem in the Lynchburg area! I love the history and character that all of the buildings offer! The Smawley Family wanted a rustic, barn feel, and I knew the Sweet Briar Dairy Barns would be the perfect fit! They're a gorgeous, worn white barn surrounded by open fields and wooden fencing!
