Nothing tells a story quite like a picture . . . but everyone loves a good story too! Welcome to my newest blog, where I hope to inspire you with my photography and wordsmithing! Or at least put a smile on your face for a few minutes. I'm looking forward to photographing you, your children, your families, and friends, and helping capture those precious moments that continue to bring smiles for a lifetime.
I was so grateful to have the opportunity once again to photograph the Raleigh United Arts Council Arts Integration Institute. This truly is my favorite photography job, because I learn so much every time I attend--even as a photographer! Additionally, the United Arts Council attracts some really unique and wonderful people, and it is always a delight to rub shoulders with them. Interestingly, it was this very workshop that ignited my interest in photography over ten years ago. I attended the Arts Integration Institute many years ago as a parent volunteer with a team of teachers, and the theme that year was photo documenting. I spent the week learning from a professional photographer, and I fell in love with photography. Photo documenting truly is my favorite type of photography, though senior portraits are now taking a close second.
I happened to be at the beach the same time as this beautiful family and we were able to capture some photos of this serene setting. I love taking outdoor portraits of of families.
This sweet baby was just a little fidgety for the entire time we tried to photograph him to get that perfectly posed picture. Regardless, we did get some cute pictures of him and his beautiful mother and brother together! We'll have to try again for that perfectly content picture!
It was so cold for these pictures, and the children managed to be so sweet and photogenic for these pictures nonetheless!
