Baby girl on the way | Goldsboro Maternity Photography

This beautiful mama is going to have a baby girl very shortly! She is originally from here and she said this was her first time in a cotton field! I guess I thought everyone had cotton in their backyards like I did when I was growing up. Either way, it sure it one of the prettier plants that grows here. Of course not as pretty as this mama loving on her baby boy. I can not wait to meet her new bundle in January.

A Christmas Parade with Thomas | Seven Springs, NC

Growing up in Seven Springs, NC a big thing that happens every year is the Christmas Parade. Luckily enough the route went right by their house growing up. This year is Thomas’ first Christmas and also his first Christmas parade, he wasnt too excited but I think he did enjoy watching everyone go by and dodging the candy being thrown at him, that is until the fire engines came and were too loud, he was not a fan of springs christmas paradetraditions photo shootsfamily traditions

Cole Michael |Fresh 48 | Goldsboro NC

Cole Michael is here and he is a boy! His parents waited ever so patiently to find out and i’m quite impressed, it’s not something Id be able to do!

I met up with his adorable family the day after he was born at the hospital here in Goldsboro, Wayne Memorial. He slept most of the time and he was able to meet his great grand parents and his aunt and cousins! How exciting everyone was able to join.daddy and babyfresh 48fresh 48goldsboro hospital photosfresh 48 goldsboro ncweb_1141web_1142happy parents3 boys #momofboysweb_1145web_1146the gang is all here

Happy Trails | Seymour Johnson AFB Photographer

This family is near and dear to me. They were part of our first operational squadron and came in right after us. My husband deployed twice with Guns and his wife and I were pregnant with our first born children at the same time. Their daughter is just a few days younger than our Jack. They have graced this blog quite a few times before and hopefully, this wont be the last time. When we got news we were headed back to good ole Shady J I was delighted to still know a few people and this family is one of them. Shortly after we arrived we heard they were leaving to fly something different. I will most definitely miss their friendship and we already miss them being nearby.fini flightf15 fini flightusaf fini flightseymour johnson fini flightsisters usafhappy trails shirt f15seymour johson afbf15 usafgoldsboro nc photographersAlso, it was Guns’ parents 39th wedding anniversary the day of the fini.

Apex’s Final Flight | Goldsboro Photographers

Last week I was asked to document a fini flight, but this one was special, it was more than likely going to be the last time in this particular jet, the F-15E. I always love going and watching them especially when kids are involved because generally they LOVE spraying their parent. This one was no different, the kids love their dad and really enjoyed spraying him. This family is off to the lovely state of Washington. I really hope they love it as much as we did… do.
