Jones Family Session Preview | Raleigh Cary Durham Family Child Photographer

So great to spend some time photographing one of my favorite families on a perfect (and warm) fall day.  You may remember them from last year – the giant chess board images.

They are so much fun, and the kids are so kind to each other & love to goof around … love that!

Something so sweet about big brother & little brother:

I have known this young lady for several years now, and she is just a bright & wonderful person:

I think they have an explorer in the family!

Enjoy your preview guys – SO many more fun shots coming your way!

Thomas Family Session ‘Preview’ | An Afternoon in the Park | Raleigh Cary Durham Family Child Photographer

I have to say I was really happy when this family decided to book a full session vs. a mini session.   Boys at this age are so much fun to photograph – so silly and so into the things they are into!  The Mom decided that she wanted to capture their personalities before she blinks and they become teenagers … which is how it happens for sure!

The weather couldn’t have been nicer, and I had a ball photographing this family.

Enjoy your preview guys!

A boy after my own heart … LOVE an ukulele!

Seriously talented kids!  Around the world he goes …

Momma’s love, nothing better …

You guys are awesome!

Can’t wait to share the rest!

Mary Beth & Matt | 11.5.11 | Greensboro Wedding

It baffles me that over a year ago Mary Beth contacted me and asked me to photograph her wedding. The time surely has flown by, and I’m a bit sad that this day has come & gone!

I am so blessed to have met this wonderful family, and am excited to share a few of the images from your special day.  Thank you for sharing it with me!

Congratulations you two!

Happy Halloween!

Our neighborhood celebrated Halloween yesterday, which I am thankful for.

The kids are sleeping in today (no school) and we don’t have to stay up late tonight – we won’t have to experience those post-Halloween school day I’ve-eaten-too-much-candy-and-I’m-cranky blues !!

Um, yeah, I tried to crimp my hair … with my crimper from the 80’s … ahhh memories!

Hope your day is full of scary & fun!

The Haist Family ‘Glimpse’ | Raleigh Durham Cary Family Portrait Photographer

 

This is one of my favorite families to photograph.  You may remember them from last year – gorgeous Momma and her three boys.  This year we decided to change it up and set up a picnic at a local park.  Let the boys play, and let the parents relax & be together.  Ahhh, it was wonderful!

Enjoy your first look – can’t wait to share the rest.

 

 

Hello beautiful blue eyes

 

 

And the boys played, and played hard!

 

 

Then it was Mom & Dad time … these two are simply perfect together …

 

 

What a sweet family.  Love.

Kelly Baby Belly | Raleigh Durham Cary Apex Portrait Maternity Photographer

 

I have been wanting to photograph a baby belly for quite some time now.  I think it is such an important phase of life to document, probably because I wish I had more (well, ANY) images of myself when I was pregnant.  How quickly we forget…

I was thrilled when my husband’s co-worker contacted me to take her maternity photos.  Definitely a last minute decision, as her due date was only 3 days after our session!  She was calm, collected and positively glowing.  And maybe, just maybe, I was secretly hoping she’d go into labor when our shoot was over … but this baby is very happy where he is and still hasn’t arrived!

 

 

 

 

Who looks this good at 39 1/2 weeks?  Amazing!!

 

 

 

 

We met at sunrise to avoid the sweltering heat … this definitely was one of my hottest sessions, in more ways than one!!! (The are still newlyweds, afterall)
