Devin & Adam // A Secret Garden Maternity Session

I am completely in love with magic and beauty of Devin and Adam's maternity session. The Rhododendrons and Azaleas were exploding with cascades of soft white and pink flowers. Devin wore the prettiest maternity dress I have ever seen- and the sun sweetly cast the last few rays of warm light between the leaves on us as it set. 

I am pleased to share that Devin and Adam welcomed their twin girls, Adelyn Mae, and Isabelle Grace, in to the world on May 29th. 

Hayden and Elizabeth, a Mother and Son Team

It is the rare occasion that you meet someone with whom you instantly bond, and have undoubtedly known across many lifetimes and universes. I realize how 'out there' that sounds, but that is exactly how I felt when I met Elizabeth a few weeks ago. Elizabeth's voice is delicate and nurturing while simultaneously depicting deep strength and sincerity. 

A few weeks after our initial photoshoot, I had the privilege of meeting and photographing Elizabeth's 13 year old son, Hayden. Hayden was a true gentleman, and very polite, with an undeniable twinkle in his eyes. I loved watching the playful dynamics between this Mother and Son duo. 

Engagement Shoot // Sneak peak of Steph and Kendall //

Stephanie and Kendall are without exaggeration one of the most playful couples I have ever met. This session was filled with laughter, jumping, dancing, twirling, flowers, sweet whispers, and soft kisses. There were so many beautiful candid moments, I just couldn't keep myself away from starting to edit a few. More to come soon! 

Maternity Shoot Sneak Peak // Devin & Adam

It was an absolute pleasure to meet Devin and Adam surrounded by rhododendrons and azaleas as we chased the evening light. The flowering botanical gardens were the perfect location to capture this beautiful couple, because they are expecting twin girls (!) in the weeks to come. Can't wait to edit the rest of this dreamy maternity session!

Kosik Family Photoshoot

I had a great time photographing the Kosik family in December of this year. It was freezing outside in Raleigh's Moore Square, but the sunshine was dazzling, and we took a break to warm up in Marbles Children's museum, which was so much fun! 

Vermont in the fall of 2015

Few things are as spectacular and breath taking as fall leaves in Vermont. Below are a few shots from my trip this past October. We came just at the tail end of peak leaf season, so the leaves were more yellow and gold than red, but still knock you off your hiking boots beautiful. The air was cool, fresh, and earthy in aroma. I visited my Dad's tiny cabin in Waterbury, (mural by my brother, Zander Stefani), Stowe Pinnacle, Rochester, and the dreamy little town of Woodstock VT. If you haven't been before, I highly recommend.
