One of the best parts of my job is that I get to watch my clients grow up in front of my eyes!  I have so many wonderful families that I have been photographing since their kids were little bitty.  Then I get to photograph their senior pictures as they are getting ready to fly […]

Beautiful Madysen chose a more urban look for her senior portraits. She also had great outfits with so much variety.  I love a long dress or a prom dress for some images and then she also brought a jacket for one outfit.  The hat that went with her last outfit was perfect!  I love a […]

We definitely hit the jackpot with the Raleigh Senior Session!  Our first session appointment date ended up being a rainy mess, so we rescheduled and ended up with a gorgeous fall day at the NC State Fair! WE raced around the very crowded fair for about an hour and a half and even changed outfits. […]

I just adore photographing little naked babies on white! It is such a clean, classic look that is so timeless. Especially in black and white I think these are perfect for a wall portrait to document this stage of babyhood!  The best age for these images is between 7-9 months, when most babies are sitting […]
