Confession: Like many other photographers, I have had a lifelong love affair with photography. Growing up and using a little Canon Powershot to capture plants and insects around my neighborhood, and inheriting a Minolta XG-A to use throughout high school to freeze more “artistic” scenes and practice the basics, then in college with my Nikon D-5000 to finally learn the modern technological side of the art I love til now – I have seen and documented everything I love(d) through the lens of a camera.
I had a really great idea in the spring of 2018, but not enough time to dedicate to it. I wanted to do more research, start some serious creative brainstorming and collecting more ideas/inspiration for this new direction. Now a year later, I am READY!
If you are subscribed to my emails – you found out that I released Spring Mini Sessions for this year! I will be holding them April 27th at Frank Liske Park (fingers crossed for the front fields to be blooming by this time!). I have a handy dandy form that you can grab your spot without ever sending a single e-mail, sign up is so quick & easy!
Y’all… I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am that boudoir season is here! You didn’t know there was such a thing as boudoir season? Let me fill you in – Valentine’s Day is a month away, summer weddings will be here before you know it and SO many brides are gifting these gorgeous albums to their other half on their big day & anniversaries are approaching!
Congratulations!! This is such an exciting time – and rightfully so! You’re on the cusp of your next greatest (and possibly tumultuous) adventure: WEDDING PLANNING! Ha! You thought I was going to say marriage…
Where do I even start?! The Historic Lang Tree Plantation in Mooresville, NC was the PERFECT back drop for Brianna & Philip’s amazingly fun wedding day! Their day was absolutely gorgeous and was a wonderful example of the magic that happens with awesome vendors! The music from SoulJam was the pinnacle of the night – I don’t think Brianna & Philip would change a single thing about their unforgettable event. This was a wedding to remember, for sure! I am so thankful to have been present for such an incredible love story!
Y’all… we had so much fun with the Christmas mini sessions this year! My first time offering a day of minis was this fall, and I think round 2 was even better. I learned a lot and I will be excited to do these up even better in 2019! Spots filled up super fast, so make sure you’re signed up for my e-mail newsletter – sessions are always offered in the newsletter first before they hit social media! Enjoy some shots of these beautiful families 💗 (This year mini sessions were held at Frank Liske park in Concord, NC.)
Courtney & her family are so sweet, they hadn’t had family photos taken in YEARS and took full advantage of the season of MINI sessions! We found a beautiful spot in downtown Salisbury, NC – just a block from the amazing Go Burrito – and took some gorgeous family photos among the fall splendor! Mini sessions make it easier for me to get to all the families during the fall season and I’m so thankful we are able to pack SO much into each one. Enjoy these portraits during my favorite time of year 😍
This is one of those small world stories! Shelby found my photography on facebook through a sponsored ad (🙌) and reached out to me for more information – we hit it off right away and scheduled her engagement session with her fiancée Brandon. She mentioned our upcoming session to a coworker – that I have known for YEARS! They also had an upcoming session! The way I imagine that realization happening between them involves confetti and jumping up and down 😂 That totally didn’t happen but it’s exciting anyway! And then later when we friended each other on Facebook… Shelby is also friends with my brother’s girlfriend! Charlotte doesn’t feel like the small town I thought it was when I was growing up, and these moments are farther and further in between now, but I LOVE it when it does happen!
We ventured to my favorite spot, Frank Liske park, and it was like my first time there. Shelby & Brandon found some beautiful spots with me and I couldn’t be happier with these photographs. It’s humbling to think that these are just the beginning of their journey together – with the next chapter starting in October 2019! I. Can’t. Wait. Enjoy the love in these shots, there is TONS of it!
Life is SO good, y’all! I love this job, the people that it brings into my life and these beautiful fall days! The Snoor family was referred to me through a great friend and now I am so thankful to call THEM friends! Audrey and I connected immediately, and her sweet family have stolen my heart over the years. They are ALREADY booked for 2019 and I ALREADY can’t wait.
How many family portraits have you seen that involves casting Harry Potter spells with sticks?! Little man wasn’t feeling it anymore so momma had the amazing idea of re-living their Halloween costumes and casting some spells! I almost teared up… these are my people!
We had so much fun at Emerson’s holiday mini session! It was a bit chilly out but the leaves in Hurley Park were the perfect backdrop for this little cutie. Her momma chose the perfect outfits and I am so proud of how these turned out – I wanted to print & frame them and they’re not even family! 😂
This past October I had the honor of photographing Christopher & Hailey while they declared the sweetest of vows and said “I do” in the mountains of Hendersonville, NC. Willow Falls event venue was the perfect back drop and we felt so tucked away in the cutest way possible. Their handmade details and elated guests made it the most perfect day for these two, and I live for all these moments!
I hope you all had an amazing holiday season – I’m so sad it’s over but I can’t tell you how excited I am for a new year. A little down time means I get to catch you all up on all the beautiful photos I’ve been working on this year. Thank you for being here and I can’t wait to share more love and art with you.
Appropriately titled… I am gettin’ my blog on today! Thank you SO much for being here!
When I started my photography business four years ago, I was most excited about creating artistic images that captured genuine emotion and beautiful light. I was LEAST excited about starting a blog 😂 Not that I don’t enjoy writing (because I actually do!) but I am an introvert through-and-through. Sharing my thoughts and feelings just seemed super daunting and, well, terrifying haha! But, I’m so excited to say that I have moved past that!
Paige was fantastic to work with from the moment we met her. She was a complete professional throughout the whole process while maintaining a calm confidence. Weddings can be stressful and chaotic but by doing her homework ahead of time she new what kind of photos we wanted and kept everyone on schedule. Thank you Paige for an amazing day!
What can I say about his amazingly talented artist! Paige has this magic ability to capture life and light in her photography. I have used her for newborn photography & family portraits. Recently she has shot my boudoirs and let me tell you she makes you feel comfortable & confident! Her process is professional from shooting to post editing. Her natural look is by far one of the best in our area and I myself am a photographer so I wouldn't trust anyone else unless they have the same level of attention as Paige. I cannot say enough about her!
We first met Paige as our wedding photographer back in 2013! She did a wonderful job capturing every moment of our wedding, she was also super creative in capturing my bridal portraits! Most recently, she shot my maternity photos and will soon become our family photographer. She is creative, personable, and a joy to work with! She gives great direction and waits for the perfect snap to show the personality of a couple.
