This client contacted me because her company asked her for a professional photograph for her bio on the company website. She said she wanted the photo to really express who she was – she didn’t want a traditional headshot and she didn’t want the photo to be taken indoors. So we went to Raleigh and found this beautiful field of wildflowers. She felt this photo expressed her laid back style and her affinity with nature.

This lovely young lady had her First Holy Communion at Saint Michael the Archangel Catholic Church in Cary, NC. Her awesome mom came along on the shoot and we really had a great time. Her dress was really special and we could not resist doing the twirl shot in front of the church.

This little girl had lots of ideas for her photoshoot! She had so much input and was totally excited to be in front of the camera in her beautiful dress. She is wearing her mom’s veil from her wedding (so special) and had sentimental rosary beads as well. Great things to bring on your daughter’s First Holy Communion photoshoot!

This was my first (and definitely not my last) quinceanera photoshoot at Waverly Place in Cary, NC. This was also the first time I was photobombed (see below). This beautiful young lady’s mom was my daughter’s preschool teacher which made this shoot even more special.

Every year I take a day to photograph my best friend’s daughter and her friends. I have been photographing my friend’s daughter since she was in 4th grade and now she is a freshman in high school. Every year we change the style and the location to keep things interesting. This year we chose downtown Raleigh and the girls got dressed up.

We all had a lot of fun despite the chilly temperatures and high heels on city pavement. The photos speak for themselves. See you next year, girls!

We don’t get too much snow in this part of North Carolina, so when it does snow it is worth taking out the good camera.

I achieved this look by specific settings on my camera. I like how some of the flakes are in focus and some are part of the bokeh. These were shot in Cary, NC. In the Triangle area, I photograph in Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Holly Springs, Raleigh and Durham. I also photograph at the beach in Atlantic Beach, Pine Knolls Shores, and Emerald Isle on the Crystal Coast. I also photograph in Morehead City, Newport and Beaufort in Carteret County.

The appearance of the lights in this photograph are the result of the way I positioned the subject and the settings on my camera.
