Lindsey | Class of 2016 | Raleigh Senior Portrait Photographer

Meet Lindsey.

A true classic beauty.  I had such a great time with her during her portrait session – so sweet & fun!

Lindsey’s Mom contacted me last summer for her senior portrait session.  We scheduled the session for last September, and after two weather & health delays, we finally had her session a few weeks ago!

I always suggest we start in the studio for hair & make-up, and photograph the senior is her favorite dress.

Lindsey is not only going to school to become a vet,

she has been playing softball since 7th grade.  A star outfielder for her team, made the game winning catch last week!

Cindy | Raleigh NC Head Shot Beauty Photographer

Meet Cindy.

Wife, mother & cancer survivor YEAH!

I met Cindy at a friend’s house about one year ago.  Call if fate, I’m not sure.  I feel so lucky to have met her!

This session was an incredibly special day full of laughter & CELEBRATION!!

Here are some of Cindy’s favorites …

I received an email yesterday from Cindy with these words that literally brought tears to my eyes …

“After the last year and a half of surgery, chemo (losing my hair) and radiation this photo session meant so much to me.   Working with you helped me get my confidence back and seeing the photos showed that you brought out a part of me that I thought I had lost.”

Heart is happy.  Life is good!

Christine | Class of 2016

This session was a long time coming!

We rescheduled I think a total of 3 times due to different circumstances.

And would you know, this 4th photo shoot date was one day after an ice/snow/sleet storm.

We decided to go for it & I’m so thankful we did!

 A total trooper braving the cold temps, Christine absolutely blew her session out of the water 🙂

.

We began in the studio for hair & make-up + some studio portraits

Abbie came to the studio because she needed new head shots for her new website.

Megan | Raleigh Head Shot Beauty Photographer

Megan contacted me to update her head shots & capture some beautiful images of herself.

 As well as portraits with her 14 year old son, since it had been over five years since their last pictures together!

 (I cannot share the mother/son portraits today, since it will be for their holiday card.  But I will share in December!)

I will quote from Megan’s email, “I’m totally camera shy so this is a big step for me!  And frankly, I DO NOT take good pictures.”

(And the ‘do not’ was in caps!)  I am glad that we could prove this statement wrong 🙂

.

We began the session with professional & friendly head shots, for business & social media

Then we glammed it up just a bit,  and captured some real beauty & her sparkling personality!

Melanie | Raleigh Head Shot and Personal Branding

Melanie came to my studio for a personal branding session.  What is that you may be thinking?

A personal branding session is like a head shot & beauty shoot, all in one.  Focusing on your personality.

We capture images that you can use for your business, website, social media, business card, book cover, newsletters, dating websites… etc!

Together, we plan your ideal custom session and capture images you are proud & excited to share.

.

Melanie wanted some indoor studio & some outdoor, to spotlight her booming CABI business & her sparkling personality.

During the pre-session consultation we decided to end the shoot with a vintage look.

Melanie loves vintage, and I knew she’d be the perfect subject for this pose that I’ve been waiting to try.

This is one of her top favorites – mine too 🙂
