The Bishops - Maternity Shoot


This day was absolutely perfect. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and this sweet family was full of smiles! Maternity sessions are so special because we get the chance to watch the anticipation of the family that only happens where a little one is on the way. These two brothers and their parents were smiling from ear to ear whenever they were asked about baby Kate who was expected to arrive in a few weeks after this shoot.

Since this beautiful session, the Bishops family welcomed their sweet baby girl, Kate, and have completed their sweet, sweet family! We are so honored to have had them take their maternity photos at the Mims House. Baby Kate, you are so unbelievably loved by your sweet parents!

If you are expecting parents and are interested in having your maternity photos taken here or even hosting your baby shower at the Mims House we would LOVE to chat with you. All you have to do is head on over to our contact page and put in an inquiry there!

Cameron + Sarah - Wedding Day


Yip skip hooray, today is an exciting day - today's the day I get to share my wedding with you! Hi there, I'm Sarah, one of the ladies behind the Mims House blog. I got married back in March and have been dying to share the photos from this sweet day with everyone! 

March 3, 2018 will forever be the best day of my life, the day my honey and I got to say "I do." We spent the day with our closest family and friends, laughing, dancing, crying (happy tears of course), just enjoying each and every moment. We couldn't have been more grateful to everyone that was there, supporting and loving on us throughout the entire day. 

To the team of vendors that made this day possible, thank you. Sarah Shumay from Sweet SaraBelle Weddings was there every step of the way, from creating my dream bouquet to amazing centerpieces and everything in-between. The food from, Backyard Bistro Catering, was to die for and all our sweet treats from Krispy Kreme Donuts to cake pops from Raleigh Cake Pops. AND of course we cannot forget about the Mims House, setting the stage for a beautiful backdrop to our sweet ceremony and reception. 

My two favorite parts of our day was the ceremony and dancing the night away with all our friends + family - with amazing tunes by Scotty with Making Memories DJ's. All of it was just a beautiful, wonderful dream. I would LOVE to share every single detail with you, but I am going to let the gorgeous images by Katelyn Coogan Photography say the rest. 

If I could share one piece of advice to any of you about to walk down the aisle, I would just say take time to enjoy it all. Enjoy the cake tastings, enjoy picking out your centerpieces, enjoy being engaged to your sweetie, enjoy the craziness of this season - because it only happens once and you won't get that time back. Marriage is the sweetest gift, enjoy it all! 

Kenzie + Matt - Wedding Day


Who doesn't love a sweet southern wedding?! Kenzie + Matt celebrated their marriage on a beautiful sunny afternoon, which included a sweet evening thunderstorm. Don't you worry though - they didn't let the rain stop them from dancing all night long with friends + family!

These two enjoyed homemade cake from the bride's sweet momma, delicious biscuits from the ever so amazing Belle's Catering, and laughter with those they love. With soft greenery + touches of white, their day was beautifully styled by the talented, Orangerie Events. We loved, being a part of this beautiful wedding and are so excited to be sharing it with you!
