This lovely family recently relocated to North Carolina from out of state, and I was fortunate enough to meet them for the first time back in April. During our first meet-up, in addition to talking about their ideas for their session, we discussed great local food (Community Arts Cafe on 4th St has a great burger), school schedule differences (North Carolina starts and ends later than their previous southern state, making for a long school year for R), and video games (J LOVES Luigi, and had just stolen his sister’s Nintendo DS after draining the battery on his). They had visited a LOT of local attractions already, and after some discussion we settled on Old Salem, near downtown Winston, for their hour-long session.
We all had SO much fun walking around Old Salem with R & J, documenting their sibling bond! They are super silly together. J found a leaf he loved, and didn’t let it go for the entire session. See if you can spot it (or where it’s hidden) in every photograph! Plus, we got to explore some really cool parts of Old Salem and the Salem College campus, and make some of our own funny memories together.
We’d love to meet your family! Visit lizphotography.com today!
We’re back, with one of our Birth to Birthday plan members, Jessica! In the first part of her maternity session, we spent time in the studio. After a quick clothing change, we decided to head outside for a downtown Winston Salem portrait session! It’s not often that you get a 75 degree day in mid-March, even in North Carolina. We’ll take it!
I found a shady spot that would still give us peeks of the afternoon sun. Can you guess where she’s posing, from the clues around her? Here’s a hint: it’s a place you would likely find in every major city. The location, paired with Jessica’s outfit choices, are perfection together! Rust and metal and light, and a beautiful mom-to-be looking her best!

Women are beautiful, regardless of the stage of their life, but I have always found absolute magic in how amazing a woman can look when she is expecting a child. Jessica will welcome a baby boy in late April, and she completely rocked her maternity session. The afternoon sun streamed into the windows of our studio, and she caught it and reflected it right back in her smile!
You can certainly tell that this little boy is going to be LOVED! We are already planning his newborn session, since Jessica is a Birth to Birthday member! She’ll enjoy all the perks of our membership program throughout the first year of her little one’s life, including discounted sessions and exclusive B2B products. This is only one half of her gorgeous maternity session — we’ll be back on the blog in the next few weeks to show you a completely different mom-to-be look that we photographed on the same day.
