Emily | Class of 2016 | Raleigh High School Senior Photographer

Emily has to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met!

Always smiling, lots of laughter – pure joy all the way around 🙂

Emily’s session was supposed to be last September, but we rescheduled two times due to weather-

NC weather was crazy this past year!

We had a gorgeous day for her session … if you don’t mind winds gusting 30-40 mph lol!

If anyone could have fun with it, it sure would be Emily.  So glad it WAS Emily  – she carried on as if it was the perfect day.

And it was 🙂

.

I am SO thrilled Emily brought in her prom dress.

Stunning!!!

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.

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
