Limited Edition Sunflower Sessions are here!

Welcome to

the blog

It was such a joy to meet Dawn, Brian, and their girls Julia & Emeline for a fall photo session back in 2020, and then I had the extra special honor of doing an in-home photo session with Dawn & the girls to capture some fun & natural mommy-daughter photos the following summer. Today you get to see both!

“I’m excited to introduce you to Charlotte, Aaron, & their beautiful baby Dominic! Dom turned 1 year old in January (fun fact – he and my son are exactly 5 months apart!), and I was so honored to help celebrate him with a fun photo session. I think this session also goes to show that you can indeed have outdoor photo sessions in the winter in North Carolina – and with beautiful evening light at that! (Morning light works too, if your kiddos’ naptimes conflict with evening times like mine!)”

“I’m so excited to share another sweet baby with you! Zoey was born in November, and we had her in-home newborn session soon after. She ended up being fussy for some of the session despite our best efforts with timing the session when babies are typically happy – funny how newborns just have a mind of their own already, huh? – but I hope you’ll agree that we got some super sweet photos of her & her parents anyway! The laid-back nature of these sessions gives plenty of time for soothing & cuddling, as well as the practical stuff like nursing/feeding & diaper changes :)”

“Since I now have a little one of my own (who just turned 18 months old – whaaat?), I love being able to relate to mamas-to-be who have that feeling of anticipation, not knowing how things will be but excited nonetheless. While we get to know each other, our conversations often even go toward talking about weird stuff that happens during pregnancy – moms understand, and I feel like TMI is out the window when you go through pregnancy and birth!” …”

“Life in the time of COVID is tough to navigate sometimes, and there’s an added layer to it when you have active kids who need to move. Susanna, Bryan, and their sons David & Sam have been doing a lot of exploring by creeks & forests during the pandemic – what a great way to spend time together and get out of the house! …”

“Alicia & Edward like to celebrate milestone birthdays in extra special ways, and their daughter Abigail just turned 5 years old at the end of June! We met up at a park, recreated some photos from her first birthday photoshoot, and did some exploring. You might recognize this wonderful family from their family photos last spring and their Christmas cookie lifestyle photo session! They’re building their wall of gallery images quite nicely – see more at the end of the post! …”

“I was happy to meet with Lake and Jacob right before stay at home orders kicked in for us late March! Since we’d already been staying at home for a couple weeks before the session, we felt comfortable following through with the session while maintaining social distance and eliminating any kind of contact. Their 4-month-old Samuel is the sweetest thing, and we were all really glad to be able to capture him while he’s still this little! …”

“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”

“I went over to their house one afternoon to witness all the fun of kiddos making Christmas cookies together. These are some of my FAVORITE sessions, when I get to come to your house and capture your family doing something you love together. I get a peek of each of you in your element, and the photos that result tell the story of a fun afternoon spent together. …”

“The first few weeks & months with a baby are definitely not always sunshine and rainbows – I recently learned first-hand that there’s a lot of crying and only wanting to be held and a never-ending rotation of feeding & napping — all for both mom and baby 🙂 All of that makes the importance of newborn sessions stand out to me so much greater. It’s a tough time, but it’s a precious time. It doesn’t seem like it in the moment, but it goes by in a flash. …”
