Maddox Asher - North Carolina Family Photographer - Goldsboro North Carolina Family Photographer

I have a confession to make….I never know what to write in blog posts. Honestly, I suck at it. I didn’t know what to say that would do my son justice. So I’ve decide to just ask him “What do you want people to know about you?” Here’s what he said:

  1. “I am cool.”

  2. “I like to play with my friends and play video games.”

  3. “I am very good at math.”

  4. “I am very smart.”

  5. “I love my family.”

  6. “Aspen, my sister is my best friend.”

  7. “I want people to be nice to one another, and treat people with kindness and respect.” (OMG CRYING)

  8. “I know my family loves me, a lot.”

  9. “My favorite food is pizza and my favorite drink is lemonade. Oh, and my favorite color is, red and green, the Christmas colors…and orange and black.” (LOL)

  10. “Sometimes I have a hard time saying words and that makes me frustrated, but I am really smart and I really like myself.” (AND NOW IM CRYING HARDER, I DON’T DESERVE THIS PERFECT HUMAN)

Sarah and Chasity - Dancing in the Rain

I feel like these images are here to explain themselves, but I’ll give a little back story.

Sarah, Chasity and I were sitting on the porch just hanging out and out of freaking nowhere a big storm comes rolling in. I mean…sunshine one second and a bucket of water on your head the next. We joked at first about “dancing in the rain” and about how I love rainy day pictures…up until I was like “I mean….I DID bring my camera.” LOL

Sarah and Chasity shot up and ran to the closet to grab a “matching” outfit and out the door we went. NOW…it WAS raining the second we walked inside to change…then when we get out to the field…NO RAIN. So we waited…did the rain dance….and waited some more….then suddenly the rain rolled on in! lol Turns out we were standing in a freaking tornado…well not directly, but we heard the area we were in got one haha

Now when you’re looking at these, keep in mind we were laughing and making jokes the entire time, so most of these are meant to be hilarious! But I really enjoyed how they turned out, I hope you do as well!

Thanks for looking! Leave a comment below and let me know what your thoughts are on these! Or…just hit the little heart ;) <3

The Henry Family and Maternity

I’ve been photographing Erin and her family since 2015 and watching them grow has been such an honor. I love returning clients because they get to also experience my growth as an artist as well. I was thrilled when I got an email from Erin asking me if I was interested in photographing her maternity/family session. My true passion since day 1 as a photographer has been to document genuine moments. My goal for every session is to capture those laughs, hugs, and tender moments. As parents we will especially cherish the real smiles and moments that capture the essence of our children.

I hope you all enjoy this session as much as I did.

Erin, Matt and Brielle, as always, it was such an honor to document your family <3

Cows are a Girls Best Friend

My dear friend Sarah Stanley has become “that crazy cat lady”… except with cows lol

Her love for her babies is so sweet it warms my heart. So when she asked me to photograph her and her cows, I said “OMG YES”. I think it’s important to love creatures, especially “farmed animals” so we can have a better understanding of what that animal is instead of an item on our menu. Cattle are intelligent and super social creatures, so being able to see them as “pets” is such a fun and refreshing point of view. I’m so happy to have captured these! Thank you Sarah for trusting me!
