Fifth Year | Raleigh Family Photography

Yes, this is the fifth year I have had the privilege to capture these beautiful smiles!

You  may remember their fun portrait session from last year.

I love this family so much.

What an incredible legacy Mom is creating for the family.  (And a very special blog post to come ;))

This year, Grandma joined us for a three generations portrait, dream come true!  The prints are a surprise, I will be sure to share after Mother’s Day!

 

We had so much fun photographing legacy family portraits, as well as some individuals for the kids modeling & acting portfolios.

Mother Daughter Portraits and Head Shots | Jen & Tina

Oh, this photo shoot!  I am over the moon to share these images with you today.

Jennifer is a rock star Mom,  fellow member of Vend Raleigh, as well as a Beauty Counter Consultant,  She contacted me  for new head shots.  When Jennifer found out portrait sessions include hair and make up for one OR two, she decided to bring her Mom along.  The last time they had portraits together was many years ago.

I wish I had the words to describe how fun & special this session was.  I suppose that’s why I take pictures, instead of words.  Let’s just say I am smiling while typing this…  I have two new very good friends, that have new memories and portraits to last forever 🙂

We captured head shots for both women, and then some contemporary portraits alone, and of course together.

Just look at all of this beauty!

Mother Daughter & Family Portraits | Raleigh Portrait Photography

Last Summer I had the privilege of photographing Kim’s new head shots & a few gorgeous dress portraits.  You may remember her photo shoot HERE.

Kim brought her family back to the studio to start the new year off with family portraits, as well as celebrating her daughter’s entry into the ‘double digit’ age!

The girls came to the studio first, and had their hair & make up makeover, while the boys were out running errands.  Girl time – always a treat!

This young girl was such a joy to photograph – so much personality, spice & all around sweet heart!  She loves her Momma and her family with such passion, just so incredible to see 🙂

.

 

Happy Birthday Miss M!!!!

Thank you Kim & family for a wonderful day.

~Kathy

50 and Fabulous!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sweet life long friend!!!!

I have been wanting to photograph my friend Erin for a long time now, and I knew her 50 and fabulous birthday would be an excuse she couldn’t turn down! Thrilled to have this birthday girl in front of my lens.  And as lucky as I am, one of her sisters was able to join us.  AND her beautiful amazing mother, celebrating her 80th birthday!

What an incredible day & honor it was to photograph these moments.

.

Of course we began with a champagne toast!

.

This next series of portraits… the epitome of a true mother/daughter loving bond.

Nothing like a little lipstick kiss on the forehead 🙂

 

Thank you for coming to Raleigh for your photo shoot xoxo

I am so excited to share this photo shoot with you today!

Two amazing daughters purchased this photo shoot as a gift to their Mom for her birthday.

Beautiful photographs with her children, with her family.

A beautiful photograph of herself that she loves and is proud to share!

Hooper | Raleigh Head Shot Photographer

How incredible to have the opportunity to photograph these sweet sisters, year after year!

Mom brings them to the studio to update their acting & modeling head shots, and of course we capture some beautiful portraits for their walls too.

Kudos to Mom for documenting this time in their lives, and for creating portraits that one day they will look back upon and treasure more than gold.

.

A few fun behind the scenes of this girls morning out!

Thank you to the Wink Hair & Make Up team, who did an incredible job keeping the look natural, yet polished.

Melanie | Raleigh Head Shot and Personal Branding Photographer

Meet Melanie.  Fashion stylist, mother, wife, home schooler, entrepreneur & dear friend of mine!

You may remember Melanie from her personal branding shoot last year HERE ,

or her beautiful holiday outdoor family portraits in 2014 HERE

Melanie is one of the kindest & sweetest people I know.  And of course it fits that her birthday is on Christmas Day 🙂

Melanie came to me to update her portraits for her booming fashion business & social media presence.

We had a blast shooting as many outfits & accessories – meanwhile, keeping it all clean, fresh & bright!

Melanie is incredibly smart about documenting her family –

she has a beautiful collection of prints & canvases over her boys entire childhood 🙂

Classic & classy.

The Hunnicutt Family | Raleigh Family Portrait Photographer

Angela contacted me because she was in need of some new family portraits.  The children have grown & changed quite a bit since their last pictures!

Mom & daughter came to the studio for a morning of relaxing and pampering with professional hair & make up.  We photographed a few portraits of the girls, and then the boys arrived to join in.

We finished up the studio portraits & headed out on location for some beautiful outdoor sunny images!
