Project Summer 2017

Welcome to my summer photo project. I will be posting a photo or series of photos every evening that gives a glimpse into our day.

I've started this project to document our summer because it always seems to go by so fast. At the end of every summer vacation I find myself counting down the days until school starts. This leads to days wasted on watching the clock or mid afternoon texts to my husband "ETA?!" 

As Lilly prepares herself for middle school I've decided to stop living for the next day or the day after. As I become all too aware of how numbered these days are, I don't want to waste anymore of them. I want to soak them up, sip them like a hot tea, savor them like a delicacy. I want to look back with not only wonderful memories but with photos- both flawed and beautiful- with a warm heart and zero regrets.

So here's to days full of sunscreen, sibling bickering, beach days, boredom, and friends. I hope you stick around for the next 93 days- leave comments to let me know you're here!

Hamilton soundtrack, baking, preteen beach party, beach day, movie night- soaking up this Summer Solstice.

In Home Newborn Lifestyle Photographer, Eastern North Carolina

I relish in the squishy faces, sweet smells and tiny squawks that come with new babies. I love the way they lay and stare at the new world around them with awe and contentment. I love the new parents that are exhausted and sleep deprived yet utterly in love with these tiny humans and the grandparents and relatives that rush across state lines to meet their new bundle.

That is what I hope to capture in my newborn sessions and that is why you will only see real life in my images. I want the moms of these beautiful babies to look back at their images years from now and be reminded of the feel of their son's nursery, the sweet quiet moments spent rocking him to sleep by the sun-filled window. I want them to be reminded of the joys of family and visitors and new bonds forged between baby and puppies.

That is my hope, that is why I love my work.

Baby Sullivan, 8 days old.

You are already so loved by many!

xoxo,

Kristy
