Joyful & Silly Photos – Part 4 – Raleigh Photographer

Happy Wednesday, friends!

If your week is dragging on, have no fear – you’re halfway through! Maybe more! You’ve come to a great place to spend a few minutes and get an extra push to keep going 🙂

If you’ve spent some time on my blog recently, you know that I’ve had fun looking back on and sharing silly photos from past years. This week I got to look through all my photos from 2018, and – surprise, surprise – there was lots of joy & silliness to be found within last year’s sessions, too!

You see, even though I photograph people from all different walks of life, I’ve found that my clients all tend to have one thing in common:


And this is basically my favorite thing. I love capturing joy for people, and it’s even more fun when they throw a funny face out there and just have a good ol’ time with the moments we share together!

Thanks for joining me here today, and enjoy these silly photos from 2018… There are lots & lots!

Remember Phoebe from earlier in the post? She likes to stick her tongue out now 🙂 Here she is in her 6 month session, getting a little tired near the end of it

Y’all already know how much fun I had with Ashley, Matt, and their kids for their fall family mini-session! Such a fun, silly bunch!



Tena & Frank shared the sweetest moments during portrait time after their Durham courthouse wedding ceremony. They shared lots of laughs & smiles!

Jessica & Hudson, rocking it in front of my camera as always during their mommy & son mini-session

I loved meeting Daniel and reconnecting with Melissa & Jonathan during their family mini-session! Daniel enjoyed munching on things 🙂



Adwoa’s colorful personality, complementing the colorful wall oh SO well during her fun & casual headshots
