Kristen and Kohl landed on their feet with a perfect day to take baby announcement photos at Grandfather Mountain. I had never met these two before our session, so I was ready to give these two a big hug upon meeting them. I could tell just from email interactions that these two were so ready to tell everyone about their new endeavor – they had a little one on the way & wanted the world to know!

From the moment we started our session, these two were completely down to cuddle and love on each other as I gave them silly prompts. We all laughed together as we made memories while capturing this special time in their personal journey. I always feel so fortunate that I get to be a small part of a stories like theirs.

It’s rare that I photograph baby announcements, so this was a great change for me. Anyone who knows me knows that if you put the mountains, a cute couple & a baby together in one job, I will be ecstatic. The excitement that these two had about their upcoming announcement made me even more excited for them than I already was. These two clearly love each other and their little one – I have no doubt they’ll make amazing parents.

See? They’re just too cute to handle. I just can’t wait to see pictures of their mini!


I believe photography is much more than creating beautiful images – it’s about the connection that you share as a couple and the human connection that we also share that will aid in capturing images that are representative of you and your unique love.

My goal is always to show a unique perspective on what makes this time in your life so beautiful. Lets learn more about each other and share in each other’s lives. Lets laugh with the good and capture the hard times for what they are. Lets set our sight on the beauty of what is happening in the present, so years down the road you can relive the joy and love of this season through images that represent you well.
