  • I love presenting my work in a beautiful, sophisticated and contemporary style.  These are legacy portraits that will out live you and be passed down from generation to generation.✨
Your children will fight over them!
What’s sentimental that’s been passed down to you?

  • Beautiful Taylor is on the blog today✨⁠⠀
(Link in profile)⁠⠀
As bright as the sun shines in the summertime, so much fun to be with and to photograph!⁠⠀
Have known Taylor since preschool days, she may or may not have given my daughter a hack-haircut while they were playing barber shop haha!!⁠⠀
I was thrilled when Taylor's Mom reached out for senior pics, I adore this sweet girl so much. ⁠⠀
We began in the studio with hair & make up, and captured stunning portraits in her prom dress.  An 18x24 framed print hangs in their foyer!⁠⠀
Next we head out to downtown Raleigh-  Taylor is so vibrant and fun, we had the best time laughing and enjoying the beautiful day.  We ended her session in the most perfect grassy field during the perfect golden hour sunlight, perfection✨⁠⠀
