We are Having a Baby!!!

Hi Everyone! Can you believe September is here? (crazy, right?!) Summer is officially over and this time of year always feels like it goes SO FAST.

So,I thought I would share a little pregnancy update with some questions I get a lot, along with sharing the details for my maternity leave.

When is your Due Date?

I am due early December but my Dr said we might be looking at a November baby! BRING IT!  I’m almost 27 weeks pregnant!

How are you feeling?

For the most part, I’m feeling good. At my last appointment, our baby girl sounded healthy, and for that, we are super thankful! We are shooting a double header (weddings on both Saturday AND Sunday) this weekend, and I am excited to knock this big weekend out!

Do you have a name picked out yet?

Yes, we do! Lucy Burke Maton! Still a bit undecided on what we are going to call her exactly!

Are you accepting any more sessions this Fall? 

Yes! I will be available for Fall sessions this year but they will be limited. However, we are NOT doing Fall Mini Sessions. I am scheduling September and October now and  will be extremely limited for November. If this is something you would like to schedule please email me ASAP!


BRIDES!!! Please get in touch with me ASAP if you want to schedule your engagement session for THIS Fall!

Are you doing Christmas Mini sessions this year?

Yes!! And I am SO excited about them this year!

Sessions will take place at our home in Apex, NC. This year we are changing it up a bit! We will be photographing IN our home! Our home is full of beautiful natural light and we will have our own lifestyle Christmas theme setup! No need to worry about freezing out butts off or standing in the rain! Not to mention, our backyard looks a little bit different these days!

Will you be taking a Maternity Leave?

Yes, my last sessions will wrap up at the beginning of November. I will spend the rest of November finishing up editing sessions, shooting a wedding and then spending time preparing for Baby girls arrival! I will be on Maternity leave Mid Nov until February! I will still reply to emails, phone calls, etc.. throughout my maternity leave but I may just be a bit slower to respond than normal!!

What if I know now that I want to book a session for February, March, April or May 2019?

Springtime is generally super busy for me, so if you want to schedule your session before I go on maternity leave, definitely get in touch with me now!
