Preparing for Hurricane Florence with Kids

The East coast of NC has been in a tizzy this week preparing for Hurricane Florence.

Capturing Milestones with Frequent Photography

How to capture your children’s milestones with photography… I have always been a strong advocate for getting pictures made, especially of my children. While I’m not huge into the posed newborn shots, especially since mama likes her sleep and I don’t want to deal with spending hours possibly making my new baby upset – I just use my SLR to take some shots and call it a day… I AM big on capturing all the rest.
