“Life in the time of COVID is tough to navigate sometimes, and there’s an added layer to it when you have active kids who need to move. Susanna, Bryan, and their sons David & Sam have been doing a lot of exploring by creeks & forests during the pandemic – what a great way to spend time together and get out of the house! …”
“Sarah & Colin chose a Christmas card template featuring a foil message on the front & simple text on the back! I love how some clients choose templates that allow for lots of text & others let the photos speak for themselves. Sarah & Colin were initially thinking to only have one photo on the cards, but they couldn’t resist including the walking one, too. I don’t blame them – Ada had to show off those skills! …”
“I’ve got a fun little mini-session to share with you today! Jasmine was the winner of a giveaway I did with Smoothe LLC here in Raleigh, and she decided to use her mini-session to get some sweet photos of herself with her dog! Oliver is a spunky little pup, and they make a great team. We met up at Dorothea Dix park for the session, and the fall colors made for beautiful photo backgrounds! Oliver’s focus, of course, was on his toys, treats, and all the kisses – and he wanted to be held or playing the whole time! …”
“What do you get for a grandparent who has everything? A PHOTO SESSION! Gathering extended family together to celebrate life & capturing that time with a photographer is a wonderful way to cherish the time you have together and then have photos to look back on that time fondly, forever. Framed photos & gallery images don’t take up any space in your parent’s or grandparent’s home – just that perfect spot on the wall where they’ll see your smiling faces and relive these joyful times when they see the photos each day. …”
Earlier this year I got to capture some portraits of a fun & sweet boy and his family as he was about to celebrate his first communion – meet Hunter! … We met at their church, the Catholic Community of St. Thomas More, and I was so thankful to see allll the beautiful natural light that their sanctuary has! I also love how little time it took for Hunter’s fun personality to start shining through. 🙂 Gotta have some funny faces mixed in with the serious ones for Mom!
As soon as we got to the park area, Beau was ALL ABOUT those fall leaves. It was Clark’s idea to get Beau to play with them, and man-oh-man was that genius. Look how HAPPY this two-year-old is!! … While more mild-mannered in the energy department (for now, at least), Zoe had her time in the spotlight too, of course! Isn’t her squinty smile the sweetest?!
“Whoever you are and wherever you are, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving last week! The year just won’t slow down, so I’m trying to carve a few moments here and there to think about what I’m grateful for and intentionally give thanks. I use that and photography to cherish the present moment before it’s gone!”
“Our communication these days is so digitized with texting, social media, and email that it’s a rare treasure to hold a piece of mail from a friend in my hands. I also think about my older relatives who don’t use computers – they never see my photos or updates online! Maybe I need to order some of these for myself… Keep reading to see if the cards we offer are the right fit for you!”
