Hi. I'm Sabrina

I like long walks on the beach... no, scratch that, I love walks in my neighborhood and lazy days at home. I'm a small town North Carolina woman who has learned to embrace the chaos of a messy house, loud children, and a shedding dog. My days are fueled by coffee and my nights are fueled by wine... not really, mostly whines, lots of kid whining {& laugher too} with some hard cider in a mason jar.

Home Sweet Home

I love being home {unless it is Disney World or Universal Studios, if that's the case, my bags are already packed}. The best part of my home is the people I share it with. That sounds corny, but it's true.

Don't get me wrong, my kiddos drive me bonkers, my husband could do with washing a couple of more dishes, and my old sweet dog wakes me up way too many times at night, BUT they are the BEST beings on this planet and I wouldn't change them a bit.... and I'm pretty sure I annoy them too.

My husband is the most supportive person I've ever had in my life, my oldest girl loves hugs more than Olaf {& hates to cooperate with traditional family portraits, even in the most magical place on earth}, my youngest girl is a tiny peanut with a big personality, and our dog is an oldie, but the BESTIE!

Me in a nutshell...

I say way too much when I'm nervous, I love all things Star Wars + Harry Potter, I'm an avid podcast listener, Universal and Disney World are my home away from home, yellow is my favorite color, but give me all the vivid & bright colors and I'm a happy girl. I've lived in the south for most of my life, but I don't have an accent and I really wish I did {"ya'll" just doesn't sound right when I say it}.

Most importantly, I'm a wife and mom who can be self conscious at times and I too understand the fear of being in front of the camera, but I honestly BELIEVE it is important! I love to capture the real, the everyday magic that is you and your family and I want to get to know you and capture those memories that are most meaningful.

"Let's Stay Home"

Taking awesome photos of your family is my job. I will go to a field and do portraits there too, but let's be honest, there is no place like home. Home is the one place you can be yourself and smile without any prompting {especially for those kiddos [and dads!!!] who aren't into having their photos taken}. It's also the easiest place to photograph your family pet too, and I'm all about the fur babies being included!

Now that you know about me, are you ready to take the first step to book your family photo session and let me get to know you?!?
