Hatley Party of 3

In honor of this beautiful lady's birthday today, I'm sharing Amber's special announcement shoot by Forage and Film. Amber and I worked together last winter on a styled photoshoot (which I'll be sharing on here soon!) and have since become friends. The desk I'm sitting at now actually used to be hers! Amber's smile and sweet heart are such a joy to be around. On top of that, she's the incredibly talented photographer behind Amber Hatley Photography. If you're looking for a wedding or lifestyle photographer in the RDU area, she's your girl!!

So, fast forward to a sunny day in April. My heart skipped a beat as I opened my inbox and saw a message from her. She and Mitchell are expecting their first child!! Baby Hatley is due in November, and in true photographer fashion, they had planned a darling photoshoot with Forage and Film to make the big announcement. They asked me to letter a sign for the shoot, and of course I said yes! 

The shoot took place in NC State University's green and luscious JC Raulston Arboretum - the dreamiest setting for such a stunning couple.

Not only are they a gorgeous couple, but I can feel their genuine love radiate straight through the lens and into my studio. Does anyone else feel that as they scroll through these photos?

Thank you to Nicole of Forage and Film for capturing these moments so beautifully, and thank you to Amber and Mitchell for allowing me to be a small part of your big announcement! 

To order a hand-painted announcement of your own, send me a note me here. I'd love to work with you!

With joy,
