An At-Home Newborn Photo Session in Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Jackson | 5 days old.

We absolutely adore this Fayetteville family! It was such an honor to be able to watch Ashley + Austin dote over baby Jackson.
These new parents are filled with so much joy! It’s been fun to see how they’ve gone from being an anxious, child-less couple to parenting pros in the last few weeks. And oh my goodness – Jackson is the cutest baby boy ever!!

Jackson didn’t want to be away from his mommy long enough to pose on our beanbag. At all! So we quickly laid her on the couch and threw a blanket over her, haha. It worked!NC Newborn PhotographerNC Newborn Portraits

Ashley’s Fall Maternity Portrait Session in Fayetteville, NC.

I’ll be honest – David and I weren’t exactly in love with Fayetteville after we got here. We had a few bad experiences and a hard time finding local businesses (super important to both of us) that were appealing. We were seriously rethinking our decision to move to North Carolina. …But then we met this gorgeous mama-to-be!
Ashley loves this town and spent most of her maternity session trying to convince us that we were just looking in all the wrong places. (We were!) She gave us some great recommendations and then emailed us a list of  local businesses to check out the next day. It was such a sweet gesture! And of course, we’ve had a lot of fun getting to know her over the last few months.

Ashley and her husband, Austin welcomed their handsome little man on January 10th, a full two weeks after his due date!  We’ll be posting a few photos from Jackson’s newborn session tomorrow, so don’t forget to check back!

Isn’t Melissa gorgeous?!

This session was a lot of fun for me because I’ve known this girl FOREVER!
Our moms were pregnant with us at the same times (born 5 days apart), so we spent a fair amount of our early childhood’s playing together.
As expected, we drifted over the years and my biggest connection with her these days is via Facebook…but I was SO excited to learn of her pregnancy.  Not to be super cheesy, but this is one girl who was meant to be a mommy!

It was really great to spend a little time catching up with Melissa, and she was such a trooper! We were moving the following week, so we had to squeeze her maternity session into the afternoon of one of the hottest days in July, but she never complained.  (Not even after a small contraction that had David in a panic.)

Congrats, Melissa! 🙂 I can’t wait to meet baby Grant!

And to add in  a little shameless plugging: Melissa is also a fabulous esthetician! So if you happen to live in the Fort Smith area, make an appointment with her at Mr. John’s Day Spa. I always recommend her services to our Ft. Smith clients and they have nothing but lovely things to say about their experiences with her.
