I am so incredibly thrilled to announce that my darling cousin Gayle & her husband Jon are no longer expecting, baby Owen is HERE! I haven’t gotten out to Greenville since this mini session we did in May, but I can’t wait to meet the cute little peanut! Hopefully you’ll all get to oooooh and aaaaah over his cuteness soon. But for now, lets enjoy the cuteness of Gayle & Jon as they excitedly waited for Owen to make his entrance! I just love how extra cozy they are, there’s something so relaxed and beautiful about doing a maternity session at your own home and it means so much more. Thanks for putting up with my trigger happy self you guys! I can’t wait to visit and snuggle up little Owen! Congrats on this new exciting chapter in your lives!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Man these year sessions just kill me. I mean look at how Baby Ray has gone from cute and snuggily newborn to a little man in a blink of an eye! I loved shooting all of his funny little expressions. This kid seriously melts me heart! Stop being so cute Baby Ray!

As a follow up to my previous blog, I wanted to share with you the FULL session of the Garvin family!

The Garvins are about to embark on a pretty amazing journey. Through doTERRA, Crystal has moved up the ranks to make it to the level of Diamond in the company! Her passion and devotion to help others find a natural course of health care has been tremendous. Gaining this level has also allowed for her family plunge into a new adventure. Soon they’ll be packing up their belongings and hunkering down in their new RV to travel the country! Crystal will still be able to teach & grow her business while her kids will get a hands on education by visiting some new places.

I’m so excited for this amazing family whom I am honored to call friend. Enjoy their fun family session!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Kernersville, NC has some incredible locations for family portraits. I love exploring each new spot and seeing how families interact in that environment. Sometimes it’s a new spot for them, sometimes it their own home. The later is the case for the Smith Family.

Their home abuts their neighbors horse farm which the whole family loves! I’m pretty sure the horses love them too because they kept following us around the whole session! I may have to go back and just do a horse portrait session because goodness gracious they were all about my cameras (as proven by the photo bomb below)!

I love the Smith family oooooodles, especially because they were so so so so cold when we did this session, but man was it worth it!  A huge thanks to the Smith men for playing along even though I know it wasn’t easy for them sometimes! 😉 I think my favorite part had to be the leaf battle at the end. Everyone had fun with that one!

I only wish these images captured the size of this families heart. They’re always giving of themselves and loving on others! Thank you Smith Family for your amazing-ness! I love you!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn
