This kid!!! Despite it being a dreary, cold, slightly rainy day, Jaxon came with the best attitude! I asked his mom if he was always like this and she said pretty much!  He quickly informed me that he loved taking pictures.  I laughed so hard when I asked if they had any other picture ideas […]

This is part of […]

Two year olds are their own special, spunky, spirited breed.  It is the most fun age though (well it’s hard to really pick one, but it’s up there!!)!  They are challenging but oh so entertaining.  My oldest is 2 (almost 3) and this year we have watched him grow from a young toddler to an […]

Doing Raleigh family photography sessions doesn’t just mean families. I get to do all stages from dating to married with kids. This variety is one of my favorite parts! Earlier this fall my brother in law, Ryan, and his girlfriend, asked if I would take some pictures of them. They have been dating for 5 years […]

A few weeks ago a client asked me how I do it. How do I handle being a Wake Forest mini session photographer.  She couldn’t imagine working with kids day in and day out. Kids who typically don’t want to be there and rarely smile on command.  I laughed and said, “well I get to […]
