Raleigh is kind of, sort of, barely starting to think about finally having some cooler fall weather!!! (even though it’s already the beginning of November haha) That has me very excited until about February when I refuse to crawl out from under blankets because I’m sick of being cold.  Now I’m blogging, thinking back to […]

Dylan & Carter • Family Mini Session in Wake Forest

I photograph a lot in the evening, so when I get a morning session I just swoon over how pretty the light is!!!!  I always wonder, “why don’t I do these more often?!” And then I remember that getting out of the house by 6:45am on a Saturday morning isn’t all that fun haha! This […]

Extended Family Session • Wake Forest Family Photography

Seven years!!!! That’s how long this family has been with AJDP!! If we sat and thought there might be another family or two that rivals that, but these two are in the top three for sure!  Long before they had two adorable kids, Harry & Christine hired A.J. as their wedding photographer.  Little did they […]

Being a family photographer near Wake Forest gives me a lot of opportunities for mini sessions at different parks.  This fall I decided to travel some for an evening of mini sessions down to the NC State Capitol grounds!  It was so fun to photograph at this location.  There was a nice mix of buildings […]

I was so excited to kick off my fall season as a family photographer near Raleigh at the beginning of September!!!! Unfortunately the weather was not on the same page. It was one of the hottest days I have ever shot on! Normally there is some breeze so being in the shade is bearable.  But […]

Out of all of the sessions that I photograph, I think the sessions of the one year olds have to be the most dynamic! Every kid is at such different stages when they turn one. Some are new crawlers, others are taking their first steps and some have been walking for a few months!  I […]

Laney • 1 year old • Raleigh Family Session

Alright moms (and any other adult thats ever been around kids) – if we’re all honest, we have at least a little sense of dread when we think about doing pictures with our toddlers.  I have it and I have access to a photographer when ever I want a session (looking at you A.J. haha!).  […]

Maternity Session in Wake Forest

The pressure was on for this session!!! But like usual, it was all self imposed haha.  A.J. has photographed this couple, Hannah & Andrew, several times for their epic engagement pictures, gorgeous Charleston wedding, and they even posed for a workshop she held as well.  So when Hannah emailed about doing anniversary portraits in Wake […]

Summer season typically slows down for family sessions.  I can’t blame them, it’s hot and sticky outside during Raleigh summers!! This sweet family knew how important it was to capture this special time as a new family of 5 though!  They scheduled a Joyner Park family session even in the heat of a July summer […]
