Isabel | NC Senior Portraits Photography

Meet Isabel!  Sweet, funny and kind.

Have known Isabel for several years, photographed her sister last year, and was excited to finally get to know her better!

We had THE perfect photo shoot in Raleigh – can’t EVEN believe the flower field we photographed.  With her joy & her smile, it was the best day 🙂

We began in the studio with beautiful magazine style portraits, and then head out on several locations downtown Raleigh.

Thank you Isabel for being so fantastic to photograph, enjoyed every minute xo

Izzy | Raleigh Senior Portraits Photography

Meet IZZY!  Fun, musical, beautiful, adventurous and truly one of the kindest people I’ve met lately!

This senior portrait session was so much fun, still laughing thinking about this beautiful day with this amazing senior.

We began in the studio with Hollywood style portraits, and THE most amazing Hollywood waves hair style.  So perfect for Izzy, just one of her four looks we photographed that day, including a gorgeous end of day golden hour in a field.

I love to begin with magazine style portraits in the studio, before heading out downtown Raleigh and about.

Thank you Izzy for the BEST day sweet girl!

McKayla| Senior Portrait Raleigh

Get ready for a whole lot of pretty!

Mckayla has the prettiest and warmest smile, so fun to photograph and be around.

Her session began in the studio with black drape classic senior portraits.  Mom had taken her to a local company, but was unhappy with the results.  First time I’ve photographed this style, am pleased that Mom and Mckayla love her senior drape portrait!

Then things got more fun and we played some volleyball in my studio with low ceilings – lol!  Mckayla has been playing volleyball for many years, and I’m so glad that we captured this for her senior portraits.

Then we head out on location, just a breeze to photograph her.  Mckayla & Mom, thank you for a fantastic day!

Mayu | Raleigh Portrait Photography

Beautiful Mayu reached out to me because she wanted professional portrait studio portraits in her wedding dress, before she traveled to Japan for her wedding.

Of course was excited, I adore photographing women in beautiful gowns, especially a celebration photo shoot like this one!

We met in the studio to plan the session, and Mayu decided since her hair & make up would be on point, to wear two of my studio gowns for more portraits … it was such a fun day of dress up & beauty.  Her husband joined us later in the session for stunning couples portraits.

And you know what’s so fun?  After their session, they went out to lunch on Glenwood, Mayu in a cute white dress  – so many people honking and congratulating them on getting married!  Just love it.

Volpe Family Portraits Photographer | Girls Morning Out Photo Shoot

It’s so nice to have time to blog these days, so fun to look back on these sessions that make my heart s0 happy 🙂

Lori’s awesome husband surprised her for Mother’s Day with a gift voucher for a girls morning out photo shoot!  The girls came to the studio for a morning of pampering with hair & make up, and lots of hugs and laughter.  Not only did we photograph beautiful legacy portraits of the girls, but then Dad joined in at the end for a family portrait for their holiday card.

Oh, and both of Lori’s sweet girls are ballerinas … we even managed to capture a few stunning dance portraits before ending the day.  Be sure to scroll all the way to the end of this post to view the images, soooo pretty!!!

This family unit was one of the most caring, loving and sweetest group of women I have had the pleasure of photographing.

Thank you Volpe family for an amazing day.

Natalie Class of 2020 | Raleigh Senior Portraits

First of all, let me start by saying HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY Natalie!  Hope it’s a fantastic day 🙂

Natalie’s senior portrait session was one for the books for sure!  We began in the studio with professional hair & make up (included in ALL sessions!), and then with portraits in the MOST beautiful prom dress I’ve ever seen, the floral detail was stunning!  I love when my seniors bring their prom dresses, and we create stunning legacy portraits <3

Next we headed downtown, a short drive from the studio, cruised around on a perfectly HOT fall afternoon that didn’t phase Natalie at all.  (We also had our hair & makeup artist with us for any needed touch ups)

So much fun, and such a natural beauty.  We ended the day in THE most gorgeous golden hour I’ve seen in a while, truly was the perfect session for the sweetest girl!

 

Thank you Natalie & Kelly for choosing me to be your photographer!  Loved every minute!

Taylor Class of 2020 | Raleigh Senior Portraits Photographer

Amazing Taylor!  As bright as the sun shines in the summertime, so much fun to be with and photograph!

Fun fact – have known this beautiful girl since preschool days, and she may or may not given my daughter a hack-haircut while playing barber shop at age 3 haha!

I was thrilled when her Mom reached out for senior pics, I adore this sweet girl so much.  We began in the studio with hair & make up, and then captured some magazine style portraits in her stunning prom dress.  An 18×24 framed print hangs in their foyer!

Next we head out on location downtown Raleigh.  Taylor is so vibrant and fun, we truly had the best time laughing all around downtown.  Such a joy to photograph!

We ended Taylor’s shoot in the most perfect field during the last light of day, the golden hour.  Taylor blew me away, just wait until you scroll down to see the pics.

Thank you Taylor & Missy for the BEST day!

Jamie | Raleigh NC Personal Branding Photography

Meet beautiful Jamie!

Jamie contacted me because she needed new head shots for her new venture, a blog and business about helping people with their personal wealth finance and being debt free, which she proudly is!

Her son off to college, Jamie wanted a way to give back that is authentic and meaningful.  And her personality can be described just as that, authentic, meaningful, and let’s go ahead and add in a ton of fun!  Adored photographing her caring smile & colorful wardrobe!  We photographed five beautiful looks, and spiced it up a bit at the end of her shoot with an amazing hair style and fabulous red dress…

George Family Portraits | Raleigh Portrait Photography

As the saying goes, time flies!  I first photographed these beauties Spring of 2013, pre-studio days.  Jenn and I connected again, as she needed an updated head shot AND family portraits!  She decided this would also be the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of her daughter’s senior year of high school, with a love & laughter filled girls morning out 🙂

Simply adore this family, kind and true, through and through.

We began in the studio with hair & make up for all three.  We captured some fresh & beautiful head shots for Mom, and individual portraits for everyone.  Have the three of the girls together for portraits was absolutely stunning, and their beautiful souls shined right through to my lens.

Enjoy the portraits, and be sure to scroll to the end to see some fun behind the scenes.
