The ‘P’ Twins

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

I had the pleasure of taking family photos for this wonderful family recently, which included adorable twin boys. They were so much fun to photograph. Mr. ‘P’ had all sorts of fun ideas for pictures at the Art Museum in Raleigh. I told him he should come along with me to every session!

Thanks for the fun, ‘P’ family! Hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

The ‘S’ Family

Friday, September 24th, 2010

This is the ‘S’ family. They have three adorable little boys – the youngest, baby ‘L’, is just five weeks old. You’d think their house would be crazy with three boys – but everyone’s so well behaved and their house was so clean!! I’m not sure how they do it!

I enjoyed meeting and photographing you, ‘S’ family! Thanks for letting me capture your sweet children. Enjoy your sneak peek!

Daddy is raising three little Clemson fans!

The ‘C’ Family’s Portraits

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

Isn’t this little girl such a doll? The camera loved her!

‘C’ Family, here’s your sneak peek. I had a great time meeting you!

The ‘O’ Twins

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

These are the ‘O’ twins. They’re just one year old and have bubbly little personalities! Little girl ‘R’ just recently learned to walk and she wanted to explore everything during our session. They had so much fun just running around taking everything in. They sure make their Mama work hard chasing after them! ‘O’ Family, I had so much fun meeting you. Here’s the sneak peek of your photos!

The ‘B’ Family

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I just loved taking family photos for this family – they are one of the nicest, sweetest families! And these kids are adorable! We spent most of the session looking for monkeys in trees and finding cool sticks. Thanks for the fun, guys! Hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

Paige Walker Center

Friday, September 17th, 2010

My next few months are really busy, so before the craziness starts, I wanted to take a few minutes to show some pictures from a fabulous location in Cary, NC. The Paige Walker Arts and History Center was built as a hotel back in 1868 and is now on the National Register for Historic Places. It’s a great location for portraits. The hotel is gorgeous and there is a small area beside it with a fountain, an open grassy field and flowers. There are also railroad tracks right next to it – one of my favorite places for photos. There isn’t a huge amount of shade, so it’s best to visit in the mornings or evenings for ideal lighting. Consider your next portrait session here!

Newborn Baby ‘D’

Monday, September 13th, 2010

I headed to Wake Forest to take newborn photos of Baby ‘D’ when she was just five days old. She’s so calm and easygoing. Sure hope she stays that way for her Mommy!

The first two are my favorites…

North Carolina State Capitol

Friday, September 10th, 2010

A few nights ago I visited the North Carolina State Capitol in Raleigh and brought along my camera.

This picture is for my Dad (I’m an Army brat). Go Army!

These are also for my Dad, who’s a Vietnam Vet. This is the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial outside of the Capitol.

Here’s the Capitol building after sunset. Beautiful, isn’t it?

This is Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh.

CM Meetup

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

I recently joined an awesome photography forum called Clickin’ Moms, and it turns out there are a bunch of members from right here in Raleigh who are very talented photographers. We arranged a meetup last weekend at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham. We spent the evening taking lots of pictures, sharing ideas, and getting to know each other. Had a blast and can’t wait for our next meetup!

One of the women brought along their daughters – they were great models!

Group photo! I think this is an awesome shot!
