Downtown Greensboro | Kristy & Brian's Engagement Session | A Greensboro, NC Wedding Photographer

Kristy and Brian braved freezing temps for the engagement pictures and it was totally worth it! We started at Fisher park and then walked around downtown Greensboro and got so many sweet shots. Here’s a few of my favorites:

Bur-Mil Park | Ben & Shanna's Proposal | A Greensboro, NC Wedding Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing Ben’s sunrise proposal to Shanna last month! It was a very cold November morning but the frost and the soft winter light made for a gorgeous session. It was so fun to see Shanna’s surprise and excitement…proposals are the best! Here’s a few of my favorite pictures from their session:

It’s hard to believe I’m already at the point in my pregnancy where I’m announcing my maternity leave! This week I hit the 28 week mark and am officially in my third trimester. Here are the details about my leave:

I will not be photographing sessions or weddings from March 1-June 14. If you are a 2019 bride and your wedding does not fall within those dates, then I would love to talk with you!! If it does fall in those dates, please still feel free to contact me and I would be happy to refer you to some other awesome photographers. If you want a family, engagement, newborn, or some other type of session, be sure to book soon if you want it done before March 1! Get in touch here or at diprimaphotography@gmail.com. During my maternity leave, I will be available at select times to future 2019 brides but otherwise largely unavailable so that I can enjoy family time and newborn snuggles. So please be sure to contact me ASAP if you need anything.

To answer a few other frequently asked questions:

How have you been feeling? Overall, I've been feeling great! My second trimester has been a breeze and other than some heartburn here and there, I haven’t had many issues. Last time around I had a lot of back pain during my last trimester so I’m hoping for the best but preparing myself for that!

Do you have a name picked out yet? We have a few strong contenders. Alex and I both had several girl names we really liked before we knew we were having a girl so we’ve got some good options! I have a feeling we won’t narrow it down until the baby comes like with Dom but we’ll see!

What things have you been loving this pregnancy? Last time I was pregnant it was during the summer and so most of my maternity clothes were for warmer weather. However, I learned a lot my last pregnancy and realized this time around I could make it without hardly buying any maternity clothes. It also helps that during the winter tunics, big sweaters, and leggings are in style! So far I have only bought these maternity leggings, these black maternity jeans (it’s SO hard to find good maternity jeans and I LOVE these), and this maternity support tank (which I have been LOVING, it really helps with back pain…I got it 50% off so keep an eye out for sales). I have been eyeing these leggings as well because I’ve heard amazing things. Otherwise I’ve just been wearing tunics, sweaters, and dresses (i’ve linked several options below). I have also been LOVING this body butter (the scent is amazzzzzing).

What are some things on your list for baby #2? Thanks to the generosity of so many family and friends, we have most of what we need! There are some things that I wished I had with Dom that I’m hoping to be able to get this time around (like a wildbird sling and fawn diaper bag) and other items listed below. If you’re interested, you can view my baby registry here. If you’re a first time mom, you can view all of the things I recommend putting on your registry here. I’m also super excited about baby girl clothes and have already visited a few consignment shops and gotten some adorable dresses. ;)

Thank you for following along on this journey with me and taking an interest in my family! If you are a former, current, or future client, I am especially thankful for YOU! Your support of my business and family means the world to me and you are the largest part of the reason why I continue to enjoy running this little business!

Old Salem | Christmas Family Pictures

I’m so excited to share our family pictures with you! My sister-in-law Erin was kind enough to take some pictures for us with my camera and I could not be happier with how they turned out! We went to Old Salem a few days after our big snow and got some pictures at the bridge with Moravian stars and on the main street. Here’s some of my favorites:
