Bryan & Julia | 9-5-14 | Raleigh Portrait Photographer

A year or so ago I removed weddings from my list of photography offerings.  I do enjoy photographing weddings, but have decided to narrow down & focus on portraiture.  (Including bridal portraits!)

Of course there are always exceptions, and this wedding is was of them.

I have been friends with the bride for 8+ years, and have watched her evolve with this true love.

It has been a beautiful journey, one just beginning for the two of them.

Photography Workshop Charlotte | Raleigh Portrait Photographer

 

Hey there!  Sorry so long since I’ve been here.  I’m calling May the new December!

However, all good and exciting stuff.

A few weekends ago I attended a photography workshop in Charlotte taught by a true master of light, Craig Lamere.  If you haven’t seen his work you should really take a moment & check him out!

 I am a 90% natural light photographer, I decided to attend this class to learn & improve my lighting skills.  I learned SO much more than that – posing, editing, and a good dose of motivation 🙂

.

The workshop was hosted by the fabulous Dez Ebanks.  Awesome studio G, set up with THREE shooting bays with three different models & light patterns.

DISNEYLAND for photographers!

We photographed all day and literally almost all night.  Awesomeness.

.

Here are a few images that I shot & edited.

So much fun to have a styling team on board, lovin’ the fashion aspect, something I plan to add to my business SOON!

This particular model is a past high school senior client of mine, and a pretty special friend.

She IS “The Leap” photo that you see when you first land on my web page.

One of my very first photo shoots four years ago.

So thankful!

{Maddie} Class of 2014 |Chapel Hill High School Senior Photographer

Meet Maddie,  true beauty with a sparkle in her eyes that never stops!

Mom contacted me this Spring to see if we could squeeze in a senior session before graduation.

Luckily we found a date that fit all of our schedules.

We met at their  home for hair & make-up with my favorite Elaine of www.elaineharrisonmakeupartistry.com.  (She’s the BOMB!)

We began photographing around Maddie’s home,  jumped in their SUV & ventured out to downtown Chapel Hill after that.

This session was a total BLAST!

.

See what I mean about sparkle?!

Enough sports, back to glamour 🙂

Chapel Hill has a large collection of painted murals, most within walking distance.

 Lots of great urban backdrops – could have photographed Maddie there ALL day!

Maddie will be attending veterinary school this fall, so when I found this mural online I KNEW this was a must!

This mural is East facing and was a little worried about the direct sun.  However, this session was SO perfect that it clouded up for us AND I could capture those sparkling baby blues for our last locale!

(Virtual high five!)
