Family moments that last a lifetime

I ALWAYS SAY

Family is forever 
Your memories should be too

In what seems like the blink of an eye, your children go from diapers to their wedding day. You owe it to yourself to stop time in its tracks and ensure that the best parts of these years live on forever. And one day when they're home from college, you can sit together and reminisce as you flip through your photo album or watch your family video. And you'll be able to make these years come to life again.

YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE IF...

There are sweet moments
that remind you of why
every hard day or week is
more than worth it

There are sweet moments that remind you of why every hard day or week is more than worth it

You do all of the hard work behind the scenes as a
parent - the day to day tasks that aren't glamorous -
and then suddenly your kids are grown. There's beauty
behind the mundane, though. Time is a thief and it will
steal those moments away. You deserve to remember
the joyful, love-filled moments of this season in the
most beautiful, genuine and palpable way possible.

Brian + Heather

I cannot say enough positive things about our experience and the quality of her work.

From initial inquiry about scheduling a session to getting that exciting notification that our photos were available for download, Morgan is a consummate professional who responds and delivers in a timely manner with warmth and personality! In typical one-year old fashion, our daughter had some initial reservations (read: total meltdown) at the beginning of our session, but Morgan was so patient and kind that our girl warmed up relatively quickly and turned on the charm. What a relief for this mama! So much about the year 2020 has been challenging for families, but we felt it was important to remember the good and joy we have also experienced this year in moving to a new city and getting to watch our daughter grow. Morgan did so beautifully, and as a result we have photos that are priceless treasures. I’m already looking forward to our next session!

We had the BEST time with Morgan, and are so grateful for her talent! 

My husband and I are expecting our first child, and given our pandemic pregnancy, we'd not done much to capture this cherished time. Morgan was super responsive, helped us scout a great location, and made us feel 100% at ease during the session. We'd just met, but it felt like we were being photographed by a friend. Not only that, Morgan is intentional about how many clients she takes on, so she turned around our photos quickly -- we were so excited to see the gallery email in our inbox! Highly, highly recommend for anyone looking to capture ordinary life or special occasions in a timeless, authentic style.

Morgan is very passionate about her work, she loves photographing families and it shows in her pictures.

I met Morgan at the Raleigh Bloom event in spring 2019 when I was barely through my first trimester of pregnancy. Although newborn photography was not at the forefront of my mind at the time, I never forgot Morgan - I kept her brochure on my kitchen table (along with all other important papers) throughout my pregnancy. About two months before my daughter was expected to arrive, I reached out to Morgan to officially book her as our family’s newborn photographer. Booking with her was so easy! And it was obvious from the first time I communicated with Morgan that she prioritizes client relationships. As my daughter’s due date approached, Morgan would reach out to check in with me and send advice on how to get our house ready for pictures as well as wardrobe tips. This guidance was enormously helpful and made the day of our session stress-free. During the newborn shoot, Morgan was just incredible! My husband and I felt like we were hosting a friend who just happened to take pictures of our baby. The entire session was relaxed and joyful. A couple weeks later, Morgan returned to our home to go through the pictures, finalize our album, and watch the video of our daughter; I did not expect it - but the video was by far my favorite product of our session.

HI I’M MORGAN!

My focus is on real moments
and the interactions we have 

My focus is on real moments and the interactions we have 

I’m a photography educator and Raleigh, NC newborn
photographer and family photographer, but you’re an
intelligent person, so I’m going to go ahead and assume you
already knew that if you’ve made it this far. Sense the
sarcasm? Hold on tight, friend. There’s more where that
came from.
  
When I’m not cuddling newborn babies or keeping kids
energized and engaged for photos, I’m most likely spending
some QT with my husband and two sons, dancing like no
one's watching or trying to figure out how I can live inside of
a J.Crew catalog - maybe even all three if I'm feeling crazy.
