For an EXTRA $25 print credit, simply share the link to this deal on your Facebook page and help me spread the word! If you do that, you receive a $75 print credit. Yes – that’s $75 worth of free prints from your session! Imagine the possibilities!

You can use the credit towards any prints AND you can use it towards the purchase of digital files! How amazing is that?!?

This deal is good until the end of the day Friday ONLY and is the best discount I’ve offered! This opportunity won’t happen again (okay… maybe next year) so take advantage of it now!

Baby "P"

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

I just loooooove photographing newborns – I think they’re my favorite! Baby Boy “P” was such a perfect little model for me. He took a little coaxing in the beginning to fall asleep, but once he did, he was out! He sure is adorable!

“P” family, it was such a pleasure to meet you and your adorable children!

Hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving!

Little "C"

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

Last weekend I had a session with the adorable “C” and his dog Ringo. They are such a cute pair. We got some of the most adorable shots of them. Little “C” happens to be in my son’s pre-school class and the two of them are so much alike – full of energy and personality. Their teacher sure must be tired at the end of the day! 🙂

Raleigh Family Photographer – The Super Gorgeous "H" Family

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

How lucky am I to photograph this beautiful family? And not only are they good-looking, but they are so fun! The girls were up for anything – climbing trees, running, jumping from things. We had a blast! Thanks for a fun session, “H” family!

The "W" Family

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

The “W” Family opted for one of my mini-sessions this year. It was the perfect way to get some updated family pics for them! It was a VERY cold morning, but 10-month-old “L” was quite the little trooper.

What else can I say – they’re a cute, cute family and such nice people!! Thanks for coming out in the cold to meet me, guys!

Find me on Facebook here!

The "J" Family

Monday, November 15th, 2010

This family has been dear friends of mine for a long time – through thick and thin! I absolutely adore them, so I was honored and thrilled when they called asking me to take some photos of them for their holiday cards this year. We managed to get their pets in the photos as well – aren’t they all adorable?

And here is their kitty, Sadie. She didn’t make it into many of the shots – she mainly hid on us!

Wilmington’s Battleship Half Marathon

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

This weekend I worked with a local event photographer to photograph the Half Marathon being held in Wilmington, NC. It was a COOOOOLD morning and my fingers nearly froze off! It was quite the experience.

This was my favorite finish line photo. She looks so happy… and she should, she just finished a half marathon!

Congrats to all of the amazing runners!

Be sure to swing by and “like” me on Facebook!
