Umstead Wedding Preview| Raleigh Portrait Photographer

I don’t normally shoot weddings.

But when this previous client & friend asked me to photograph their small, intimate wedding at the Umstead, I just had to say yes 🙂

It was the perfect day.

Taylor | Raleigh Beauty Portrait Photography

Meet Taylor.  As genuine as a person can be.

I have know Taylor since our first shoot together in 2010 for her high school senior portraits.

Taylor is a dancer, and her beach photo shoot in 2010 resulted in an image capture that not only kicked off my business venture, but has defined me & my style every since.

Our  image ‘The Leap’ even spent time in the North Carolina Museum of Art! Click HERE to view more about that exciting day!

Sheree | Raleigh NC Head Shots

When Sheree contacted me for head shots the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

Head shot sessions are  very popular.

With so much social media interaction, many times your photo IS your first ‘handshake’!

I have updated my session offerings for 2015 to include two head shot session options – mini session or custom session.

Sheree opted for the custom session, so we could have plenty of time for wardrobe changes and the opportunity to capture some beautiful & approachable ‘not so corporate’ headshots!

The Sanchez Family | Raleigh Cary Family Photographer

I knew from the first phone call that I would enjoy photographing this family.

I love a family that’s not afraid of a winter session – in NC it really is hit or miss, and it was on with warm-ish temps for their session!

Mom wanted to capture these early tween & almost high school smiles, near and dear to my heart as I am in the same boat.

.

We met downtown and the fun began…

You can just tell they are a loving family 🙂

One of my favorite downtown spots- literally looks like another place & time!

They opted for a wardrobe change – our initial plan was to stay downtown, but the traffic and parked cars were too much, so we packed up and headed to Pullen Park!

So glad we did.  Just love how these all turned out.

Precious girl!

And here is the wall display we put together for their family room – new design that fits their room beautifully.

And in all modern metal prints, will be a show-stopper!

Hooper Sisters | Raleigh Child Model Photographer

I was SO thrilled when Mom contacted me to tell me it’s time to update her girls modeling portfolios.

(You may remember our shoot in 2013 – click HERE to view)

I couldn’t wait to get these two beautiful sisters in my studio for a day of girly beauty & FUN!

This past weekend this little charmer won her age group as Miss Liberty Little Miss!
