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.

Raleigh Senior Portraits | Linnea Class of 2018

This girl!  This photo shoot! One of my favorites to date 🙂  I knew this was going to be a fantastic photo shoot right away.  Linnea is so brilliant, and so talented with photography as well.  She wanted a little more ‘art’ to her photos, and it was so much fun to shoot.

We began in the studio with prom dress portraits, and progressed to many different locations – had the BEST weather, was worth rescheduling & waiting, vs. the cold dreary day that was the first date.

So much beauty & brains, watch out UNC Chapel Hill!

 

And a few fun behind the scenes… model for a day 🙂  All senior sessions include professional hair & make up styling for the entire photo shoot!

Raleigh Head Shot Photographer | PrimeMD

I asked frequently ‘do you photograph men’.  And the answer is yes!

Dr. Joe Hummel came to the studio, with two of his staff, to update head shots for their website.  Click over their website to see how great they look HERE – we updated them on the spot, during their sales session!

Dr. Joe is just as wonderful as his beautiful wife Shelly, whom you may remember I photographed last year.  It was a morning full of positive energy,  laughter and so much fun and kindness – thankful I am!  His commitment to living a stronger & healthier life is evident.

Raleigh RTP Head Shot Photographer | GSK

Last month this group of incredible women came to my studio for what we’re calling ‘Portrait Palooza’!

The initial contact was for a group photo – replacing a stock photo (!) with actual women who work for GSK.  The image will be featured in a publication spotlighting Minority Women in Business.  Once it is published, I will share the photo here! (scroll down for a fun behind the scenes version…)

These women spent the morning being pampered with professional hair & make up by the Wink Hair & Make Up team.  The ladies took turns in front of the lens for a new professional head shot, some even brought their favorite dress for a magazine style portrait.   We also photographed a Vanity Fair inspired group photo for their marketing magazine!

Another incredible photo shoot to share with you today!

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.

Raleigh Head Shots and Personal Branding | Carole

Meet Carole.  A mother, wife, and founder of My Therapist NC   ,  Carole is also co-presenter with The Art and Science of Love Workshops!

Carole is in the process of updating her websites , and reached out to me for new head shots and personal branding.  After viewing her friend’s new head shots (by me),  Carole realized that it is important to have current head shots and branding to accurately reflect her personality & brand!

Not only did we capture new professional head shots, but we concluded the session with some fun & fancy red dress photos! (be sure to scroll all the way through)

I always encourage my clients to bring ‘that’ dress, or something jaw dropping to wear.  While you have your hair  & make up on point, why not?

Smart, strong, stunning!

 

.

Thank you Carole for an amazing day!

Ashlee | Raleigh Senior Portrait Photographer

Smart, sweet, beautiful, kind and just plain amazing … Ashlee!

Class of 2018 superstar & all around great person.

You may remember Ashlee from her stunning prom dress & portraits we captured in the studio last May. (Click here to view) 

The weather forced us to postpone her original session date, and on this reschedule the wind tried to control us.

But let me tell you, we turned that around and oh my goodness the wind gave us everything, and more!!  Ashlee was such a trooper because it was not only crazy windy, but chilly too.  Model material, I think you’ll agree especially after viewing her portraits :

 

 

.

And a little behind the scenes fun … Ashlee in the make up chair, having some fun with the fabulous Kristi with Wink Hair & Make Up!

Thank you Ashlee & Mom for a fantastic photo shoot!
