This photoshoot for this adorable Panther Creek High School Senior was shot late in the Fall season. This volleyball player loves the cooler weather… and even though the weather was cool, it was beautiful in the forest. We shot in 2 locations that were pretty close together but provided her with different backgrounds. The late-autumn light was magical. A great shoot!

Senior pictures are made even more special when shot in a location that is new and different.

Cary Forest

Secret location that only I know about

Pretty foliage was still clinging to the trees for this December photoshoot.

Secret location where the trees just don’t give up their leaves… even for this December shoot.

This Panther Creek High School Senior had a smile that lights up the room.

A little photoshop magic and the sun is bursting through the forest.

The architectural structure in the forest in Cary grounds the photograph and leads you eye into the portrait.

This photo really captures this High School Senior’s personality perfectly.

This beautiful couple are high school sweethearts and they are getting married in the Fall of 2018. They booked this engagement session with me after seeing a family portrait session that I did at this same location. It was a warm Fall afternoon and we got lots of beautiful shots. The stand-out one for me is where it says “HOME” above their heads. I did a little photoshop magic on that one, but it was mainly to remove the other words that appear on the vintage wall they were standing in front of.

This couple lives in the Cary area but they are getting married in her hometown a few hours away. They wanted nice engagement photos for their Save The Date card. They were great to work with and they chose the gorgeous Indian Creek Greenway for their location. Love is in the air!

An apple for the teacher.

Some glasses and some really advanced text books.

Will | Class of 2017 | Apex High School

Will is a remarkable young man. He has overcome great adversity, the details of which are unimportant. He is a gifted musician and a brilliant person who is attending the University of North Carolina Honors Program in the Fall.

This shoot was so much fun! We picked spots all over Downtown Apex and even got lucky to catch the back of a freight train as a great background. We were standing in a parking lot. Never on the tracks.

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.

I love photographing Tweens. This shoot took place in Downtown Apex, NC. It was an unexpectedly warm day. We had a lot of laughs and took a lot of pretty pictures.

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.
