Laura | Raleigh Head Shots & Personal Branding

Laura first contacted me in the Spring, in need of new contemporary head shots & personal branding of her new website.  Then, of course, life happens as a busy entrepreneur.  As well as Laura moved out of state before we could have her session.

We stayed in contact, and late summer figured a date that she would be driving through Raleigh!

Laura wanted a variety of pictures that help present her as a writer, fiction & freelance.  She wanted to look fun, playful and professional where possible, with images to use across all of her social media for now and future.   No problem there!

A wonderful person to photograph, easy to work with & simply radiant through and through!

Kim | Raleigh Head Shot & Modern Portrait Photographer

Lovely Kim!

Kim came to my studio to update her head shots to reflect her bright & kind personality.

Kim decided to have two of her looks for her professional head shots, and two more looks that celebrate her beautiful self.  Portraits that celebrate her passion for life & her accomplishments.

Kim chose to wear one of my dresses from the clothing rack in the studio, and I’m SO glad she did.  Absolutely stunning, some of my all time favorite portraits.  And Kim loves them all too 🙂

Her lucky husband will be receiving some of these portraits for a surprise anniversary gift!

Ashlee | Raleigh High School Senior Photographer

Beautiful Ashlee!

Ashlee and her Mom came to the studio the morning of her prom.  Ashlee received professional  hair & make up, and then we captured some stunning portraits in her prom dress.

I love that Mom thought ahead to book professional portraits … you spend so much time and effort to find the perfect dress & perfect look, why settle for iPhone photos (although I’m a big fan myself)

.

Not only is Ashlee super sweet, kind & smart, she completely wowed me with her openness to the camera.

Every frame was a jaw dropper!

50 & Fabulous! | Raleigh Portrait Photographer

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.

The girls told me when they brainstormed gift ideas, they both knew this would be the perfect one!

Beautiful photographs with her children, with her family.

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

.

We began the shoot in this sleek dress with pearls, a classic look.

Traci | Raleigh Head Shot Personal Branding Photographer

Traci is not only a mom to two adorable young girls,  but also a fellow photographer!

Traci came to the studio  (with her bestie Nicole, previous post) for a morning of pampering & relaxing.  Having a friend with you on a photo shoot simply doubles the fun & makes the morning out just that much more enjoyable.

Traci wanted new gorgeous portraits for her website & social media.  I love what she said during her image reveal , ” I thought I would only like one or two.  But, I love them all!”

Laurie | Head Shots Personal Branding Raleigh NC

Photographing Laurie is seriously a job perk!

We met two years ago when she contacted me for head shots & personal branding.  Was happy that Laurie contacted me again to update her portraits!  And this time, we added a beautiful black dress to her portrait wardrobe.  Love!

Laurie is a former Human Resources leader turned influential speaker, writer and entrepreneur.  She is the founder of GlitchPath , an early-stage startup focused on business insights.   AND Laurie is a cat lover like no one I’ve ever met (had a sweatshirt made with her cat on it for the shoot!)

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.

Emily | Class of 2016 | Raleigh High School Senior Photographer

Emily has to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met!

Always smiling, lots of laughter – pure joy all the way around 🙂

Emily’s session was supposed to be last September, but we rescheduled two times due to weather-

NC weather was crazy this past year!

We had a gorgeous day for her session … if you don’t mind winds gusting 30-40 mph lol!

If anyone could have fun with it, it sure would be Emily.  So glad it WAS Emily  – she carried on as if it was the perfect day.

And it was 🙂

.

I am SO thrilled Emily brought in her prom dress.

Stunning!!!
