CLAIRE / HOLDEN BEACH, NC

Watching this girl grow before my very eyes is the craziest thing I have ever experienced. In the past three months her little wobble has turned into a confident walk, she has full on conversations with us even though we have no idea what she is saying, and seeing her enjoy Holden Beach the way our family has for so many year was absolutley everything. 

One morning, we decided to hop up early and capture Lindsey and Andy and baby Claire to document her 15 months of life. Now, if you came here for smiling faces pointing towards the camera, you came to the wrong blog. Being 15 months old means exploring, being tossed up in the air by your dad, and picking up every shell you can possibly find while waving to seagulls that fly overhead. So that is exactly what we did. It's the only way I enjoy capturing youngsters. You can't force them to be something they are not, and that is beautiful. Lindsey and Andy are also crushing it as parents, so we definitely need to give credit where it is deserved. All in all, Aunt Chelsea loves her little girl, and I am so happy to capture every growing moment I can. 

THE CHAMBERLAINS / RALEIGH, NC

Couldn't love this family more. I have watched them grow since Katie & Reid were pregnant with their first. My favorite thing to see in this family is how Reid and Katie play with their children. From the years of sessions together, I rarely have to say a word anymore, I just get to observe, which can only hope to create pure magic.

Katie and Reid's natural instinct to pick up their kids and make them laugh, snuggle them, and just genuinely play with them around seven in the morning is something to witness. It isn't perfect, but it isn't suppose to be. We sometimes have two kids running off in two different directions. But that chase to get them back sometimes naturally develops the perfect amount of laughter and cuddles to capture beautiful moments exactly like the ones below. It captures the essence of what this family is all about, and that is all anyone should ever hope for.
