Raleigh Head Shots and Portraits | Laurie

Meet Laurie. Laurie is an awesome #girlboss – writer, speaker, and entrepreneur known for her commonsense style and straightforward approach to workforce issues.  Laurie started a new podcast in April 2018 called “Let’s Fix Work”, and her first book is in the works! Nothing short of one amazing woman, I adore working with her.   Find her on the web HERE. 

Laurie knows the importance of contemporary and fresh photos for her online presence and marketing, and came back to me for the third time to update her portfolio!  Always a highlight and a great day to have her in the studio.

We focused on clean beauty portraits, as well as portraits that portray her vibrant personality…

Girls Morning Out Photo Shoot |

Today I share with you images with you from one of my favorite shoots to date, keep scrolling & you’ll see why.

This family won my Mother’s Day Portrait Session giveaway back in May, and I’m so glad that they did.

One INCREDIBLE Momma, raising three equally incredible daughters.  I am so honored to have captured these portraits for them, for all time xo

As you can tell from the behind the scenes phone snaps, this photo session was nothing short of fun & happy memory making !

Beautiful Sara came to the studio first, by herself, for a little pampering with professional hair & makeup.  Dare I say it’s been a while since she’s had some time to herself like that …

Then her gorgeous girls arrived, received age appropriate hair & make up, and we captured some gorgeous portraits

Wardrobe & backdrop change, and we photographed more timeless family portraits.

 

Thank you Sara & your sweet family, for spending an amazing day with me!

Cary Senior Pictures | Kathleen

Celebrating the return of the sunshine here in Raleigh today with some beautiful senior portraits!

Gorgeous Kathleen … oh my goodness, this senior session was over the top with beauty & fashion! Kathleen is not only smart and funny, but incredibly sweet and kind, and as you can tell a ton of fun to photograph!

We began her session in the studio with professional hair & make up, and then headed downtown for an incredible afternoon!  And of course, she blew me away during the golden hour, in a field, laughing all the while 🙂

TWO SPOTS left for Fall senior portraits – email me for more info & to book!  kathy@kathyhowardportrait.com

NC Head Shots and Portraits | The Shields

Beautiful Molly contacted me in need of updating her professional head shot, as well as her husbands.

Molly came to the studio first, and had her hair & make up professionally done.  We then captured a few professional head shots that reflected her vibrant personality!  Her husband arrived, had his make up touch up, and we captured new head shots for him as well.

We had so much fun, these two are truly just the cutest together, laughing and enjoying the photo shoot!  We headed outside into the heat of the day to capture their holiday card photo.  Total troopers, it was HOT!

I love when clients take advantage of the fact that their hair & make up is on point, and we design a shoot that fulfills all of their needs.

Once we came back to the studio, cooled off and had a final hair & make up change, we photographed Molly in a dress she rented from Rent the Runway, as well as a red dress from my studio rack.  I love capturing magazine style portraits for my clients, and to be able to create a full portfolio of images to choose from.

Raleigh Family Portraits | The Hoopers

Summer’s almost over & it’s time to do some blogging catch up!

I have been photographing this sweet family for 5 years now, I adore them all SO much!  Incredibly fun, so loving &  connected.  What an incredible legacy Mom is creating for this family, portraits to cherish for generations.

This studio session was just for the kiddos – we grabbed a few *rare hours that all three kids were home from camp this summer (BIG brother wasn’t able to make it to the spring session) , knowing that it would be even more difficult during the school year to have the time.

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!

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.

Be sure to scroll all the way down for some fun behind the scenes snaps!

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!
