The way you are right now // Wilmington family photographer

This mama was so kind to me when I moved to Wilmington in January and we struck up a little friendship in the pick-up line at school. To me, as a Midwesterner looking in, she is Southern in all the best ways — warm and welcoming, impeccably stylish and witty and fun, and so full of heart.

It was easy to see where her kiddos get it. I had a tough time sneaking a photo of them looking at me because they were so busy loving on their new baby Mac, absentmindedly holding his hands, kissing his head, tickling his toes, playing with his feathery hair.

They just couldn’t help it, and it made my heart swell to get to watch them.

That is one lucky baby, to be born into a family where love comes so naturally.
