“Our maternity photos with Light Creative are stunning. It was a windy and bright morning, and Kelly’s photos made it appear warm, light, and SO us. She has a great eye and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We were laughing and smiling so much. Thank you, Light Creative, for the beautiful photos!! I know we will treasure them always and look forward to showing our little babe once he/she arrives. 🙂 -Haley”

“Sarah & Colin chose a Christmas card template featuring a foil message on the front & simple text on the back! I love how some clients choose templates that allow for lots of text & others let the photos speak for themselves. Sarah & Colin were initially thinking to only have one photo on the cards, but they couldn’t resist including the walking one, too. I don’t blame them – Ada had to show off those skills! …”

“I’ve got a fun little mini-session to share with you today! Jasmine was the winner of a giveaway I did with Smoothe LLC here in Raleigh, and she decided to use her mini-session to get some sweet photos of herself with her dog! Oliver is a spunky little pup, and they make a great team. We met up at Dorothea Dix park for the session, and the fall colors made for beautiful photo backgrounds! Oliver’s focus, of course, was on his toys, treats, and all the kisses – and he wanted to be held or playing the whole time! …”

“In case you haven’t already figured it out, they’re a fun, special couple. They met on a DANCE FLOOR, and they do all sorts of outdoorsy things like hiking, kayaking, traveling, and cycling. I think I might have to go adventuring with them sometime! I’m excited to see how baby Bryce fits into their lives – watching soccer & bird watching with his dad, staying active and eating healthy treats with his momma. You’ll get to meet baby Bryce in the next blog post as we continue through the New Life Collection, but first, here are their maternity photos! …”

“What do you get for a grandparent who has everything? A PHOTO SESSION! Gathering extended family together to celebrate life & capturing that time with a photographer is a wonderful way to cherish the time you have together and then have photos to look back on that time fondly, forever. Framed photos & gallery images don’t take up any space in your parent’s or grandparent’s home – just that perfect spot on the wall where they’ll see your smiling faces and relive these joyful times when they see the photos each day. …”

“Jessica & Ben decided to treasure these moments as much as possible by investing in the New Life Collection. Since that includes maternity, newborn, 6-month, and 1-year photos, I’m already looking forward to our upcoming sessions! The photo book they receive at the end will be such a beautiful way to look back on baby Connor’s first year of life with photos from all four of these sessions. … ”

“Sarah and Colin go to the same church as we do, and it has been so fun getting to know them this year! Their daughter Ada is basically the cutest with her big blue eyes and curious nature. We spent a lovely Sunday morning before church together in Anderson Point Park, and if I remember correctly, the weather was really nice for late June! I’m excited to continue spending time with this beautiful family, especially as Isaac gets older and he and Ada can play together. :)”

“As I sit here with a 37 weeks + 3 days baby belly, it’s so fun looking back through sessions I’ve done with little ones! Watching my clients interact with their kids makes me so excited to get to know our baby, play with them, care for them, and show them the world. I’ve been friends with Heaven & Russell for quite some time (just about 20 years knowing Heaven!), and it has been such an honor to get to know their daughter Phoebe and capture the first year of her life! …”

“Today I’m sharing a session I did in May near Baltimore, Maryland with some friends from college! Lauren and my husband Andrew were in the social work program together and did many group projects together back in the day. I was really excited when she said they were interested in getting photos before Lucas’ first birthday – It was the perfect excuse to go up to see them! We met at Centennial Park for the session, and that place was HOPPING with people running, having picnics, playing with kids, and even doing some juggling practice …”

“I was dreading being in pictures from the photoshoot for our daughter’s first birthday because I’m not usually comfortable getting my picture taken. By the end of the photoshoot I was so glad I decided to have my husband and me in pictures. It was so much fun to play with our daughter and have candid photos taken, and when it was time to pose I felt so comfortable because of Kelly’s direction and laid back personality. I can’t wait to have more pictures taken by her in the future!” – Alison
