A privilege of being a photographer is the ability to tell an incredible story through images... The ability to freeze time and capture moments and memories that express raw emotion and feelings. Though often times were are drawn to the eyes of the subject, there is nothing more powerful than the stories that can be told by a persons hands. I, myself have always been drawn to capture this. You may not realize it, but hands can show us show much emotion and hidden details without even showing someone’s face. They can show us age and playfulness in a young child, or a long and beautiful story in someone much older. And most of all they can show show us love and comfort between one another ❤️ #maternityphotography #maternityphotos #babybump #familyphotography #beachsession #beachfamilysession #beachmaternityphotos #sarahkatephotography #naturallightphotographer #lifestylephotographer #crystalcoastnc #crystalcoastphotographer #ncphotographer #coastalnc #wilmingtonncphotographer #beaufortncphotographer #atlanticbeachnc #atlanticbeachncphotographer #easternnc #easternncphotographer #candid #sweetmoments #babygirl #awaitingbabygirl #blackandwhite #hands #lifestylephotography #canon #lookslikefilm

Humidity - lets talk about it because apparently my landlocked lenses were like WTH is this and fogged up for the first half of this shoot - see the haze?! We had a goood talk about our hair and what sessions are going to be like after this.

Aug 25, 2019

You would have no idea from these photos (well maybe the last one) that there was a giant storm cloud coming and with it being low tide we may or may not have gotten stuck on the sneaky new sandbars around Mason’s Inlet that have changed after Flo. Nothing like seeing lightning and shoving off a sandbar 😅 Luckily flat bottom boats are perfectly suited for these types of situations. I’m so glad we got to spend time with two of my favorite people. Having them here always feels like home, no trying, just home no matter how long it’s been since we’ve reconnected. Love you Elizabeth and Andrew! 💖 . . . . . . #virginiagatesphotography #wilmingtonncphotographer #familyphotographer #commercialphotographer #equestrianstyle #childrensphotographer #familysession #wrightsvillebeach #wilmingtonnc #seekjoy #sonya7 #50mm #portrait #portraitphotography #maternityphotographer #minisession #dowhatyoulove #followyourdreams #girlboss #smallbusiness #portraitvision #dearphotographer #hellostoryteller #wrightsvillebeachphotographer #masonsinlet #figure8island

Aug 25, 2019

Current life has me with a hot cup of coffee, a gorgeous session being edited, giggles from my kids + a best friend playing, and a wonderfully overcast vibe. It’s pretty darn great, guys. The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. Plain and simple. I’m a homeschool mom (all 4 of my kiddos are being taught this year! Ranging in ages from 10-3) and school starts back tomorrow morning. My business has seen awesome growth so I’ve been busier than ever (and I’ve got some pretty fantastic things coming soon)! As a person who has wholeheartedly asked the question “dude, what?” of 2019, I’d say it’s shaping up! Leaving off with a favorite quote: “A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.” • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #jacksonvillencphotographer #camplejeunephotographer #topsailislandphotographer #emeraldislephotographer #ncphotographer #ncweddingphotographer #elopementphotographer #northcarolinaweddingphotographer #southcarolinaweddingphotographer #militaryweddingphotographer #northcarolinaphotographer #northcarolinabeachphotographer #northcarolinafamilyphotographer #eastcoastphotographer #wilmingtonncphotographer #communityovercompetition #rts #lifeofaphotographer #calledtocreate #kentuckyphotographer #kentuckyweddingphotographer #louisvillekentuckyphotographer #lexingtonkentuckyphotographer #homeschoollife #homeschoolmomlife #homeschoollifestyle

Aug 24, 2019

“As your kids grow they may forget what you said, but won't forget how you made them feel” ~ Kevin Heath What I love most about family filmmaking are all the ways it makes me and others feel. I have heard several times now, “That’s not even my family and I am moved to tears”. And if it affects strangers in this way, think of the impact it has on the family! If your family were featured in a family film, what would you hope to feel?

i have a love for first looks. if you ask me if you should have one, I definitely say yes. it wasn’t until I got married and had the most emotional first look ever (+ I’m not even a huge crier) but I bawled my eyes out I was so happy at that moment. this first look was so sweet with the bride and groom getting teary! thanks for emmabauso_photo always trusting me to ✌🏼 for her. now off to a wedding day to second for another bomb photog.

Aug 23, 2019

All of us know this feeling. When the anticipation of a wave heading toward you is just too much and you squeal and throw your hands in the air as it rolls over. And then, as it passes, there's that heavy sigh that's both a release of excitement and an acceptance of joy. Isn't this how it is at the end of the summer as we unpack our beach bags and trade them in for book bags? School starts back next week and friends, I hope you take in all the summer joy this weekend has to offer. Throw those hands in the air and squeal as loud as you can!⁠

Aug 21, 2019

Today we wrapped up our last official Wilma Women’s to Watch Leadership training class before we graduate next month. When I was accepted into the program last year, I truly had no idea what to expect going into the first session this past January, not to mention I didn’t know anyone in the program at the time. Fast forward eight months, and I am so sad this will be our last session with this incredible group of 32 women. The friendships and connections that I have made, especially through our smaller peer groups have been invaluable and I cannot say enough great things about this program. Our class is made up of women from so many professions and walks of life, that just being in the room each month and getting to hear all of the different outlooks/opinions on the monthly topics has really been the best experience. I am walking away from this program a stronger woman, business owner and leader and for that, I am forever grateful to Wilma.

We have hit the ground running since our first official day yesterday! Got BOTH kids registered for school, storage unit packed with our IKEA purchases (that I hauled with a trailer myself 🙌 - kinda proud of that one!) AND rushed L to soccer tryouts for a local private team that she then got invited to join! — This morning I woke before everyone else to go to the beach, saw a sea-turtle nest and experienced my first little bit of solitude in weeks. Day 2 - back to school supply shopping and meeting with our housing builder to show them all the mistakes we found in the house 😩. Now my journal entry is complete haha.
