  • Welcome!

    I'm a portrait photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and I love what I do. Come back often to see sneak previews of my latest sessions.

    to schedule your session today!

Brunell Family | Raleigh Maternity Photographer

My sister, Joanna, is having a baby! She and Victor will be the best parents and I have no doubt that my nephew will have a childhood full of love, learning, and adventure. These pictures were taken a couple of months ago and, as I type this, she’s actually past her due date. We’re (sort of) patiently waiting for him to arrive, but…we’re also anxious to meet him 🙂

Dear Nephew: There is already so much love for you out here. We’re ready when you are. <3

Stephanie and Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

Stephanie had a special birthday this year and enjoyed a big celebration with family and friends. I won’t say how old she turned, but I will say she looks great! Her family was a lot of fun and I even got to take a few of Stephanie’s adorable granddaughter 🙂

Silverman Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

I love that this session took place at the tennis court. The whole family plays, so it made perfect sense that they suggested tennis–and fun–be incorporated into their photos. Even their dog Blaze joined the match 🙂

Johnson Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

I hope you’ll feel the love while looking at these pictures. I definitely felt it when I was around these three 🙂

Sofia | Raleigh High School Senior Photographer

Have you ever lived near someone who had the gift of bringing the whole neighborhood together and making it a fun and friendly place to be? Sofia’s family lived across the street from us in our old neighborhood and they were those neighbors, truly taking the time to get to know everyone and arranging fun block parties. They’re just great people. I hadn’t actually seen Sofia in a few years, so you can imagine my shock when Sofia got out of the car for the session and I was looking at a young woman. And, yes, she is beautiful–but I’m even more impressed with how smart and dedicated she is and what a kind soul she has always been. I can’t wait to see what she does next 🙂  Sofia’s boyfriend, Mitchell, jumped in for some photos at the end and, as you’ll see, those two are pretty adorable 🙂
