  • 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!

Munro Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

The Munro family is back on the blog and looking lovely, as they always do. This was such a beautiful day and beautiful time of year for their session. The kids had the freedom to run around and just be kids, which always makes me happy and moves me in a session.  I’m really thankful to get to photograph families like this one 🙂

Southern Frock | Raleigh Fashion Photographer

Congratulations goes to Emily Newnam (shown center in the photo with the turquoise wall) on her new line for Southern fRock! Shooting for her is always a blast and I’m constantly impressed by her talent. You can buy directly on her site! A special shoutout goes to her lovely models, who were awesome and did a great job making a frigid day in January look warm 🙂

Anna and Maria | Raleigh Child Photographer

Anna and Maria are the daughters of my friend, Christine. She rules and so do they 🙂 These two are so different in personality, yet they are each smart and kind and lovely and fun in their own special way. Christine is raising them to be strong women of substance and I think she’s knocking it out of the park. You go, girls 🙂

Spragins Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

Eric is a student in NC State’s Jenkins MBA Program, which is how we met. He’s just an all around great guy and I was happy to get to meet some of his extended family during this session, which included his parents and his brother’s family. You can see the whole lovely, easy-going, friendly crew below 🙂

Brianna | Raleigh High School Senior Photographer

I’ve done lots of shoots with Brianna over the years (this one being the most recent). Some have been family-style sessions and some have been more conceptual. Either way, Brianna has always been up for anything and has plenty of ideas of her own–and she’s ridiculously photogenic.  I felt so nostalgic doing her senior session only a block away from the place where I did her first session over 8 years ago. It was the first day I had met her. Since that day, I’ve had so many wonderful memories with her and of course with her mom, Tina, who is also in some of the pictures below. I have so much love for them both and am lucky to know them.

Brianna, I’ll try to spare you all of the things adults always like to say about how you’ve grown up so fast and how I just can’t believe it and how wonderful you’ve turned out. But it’s true just the same. You’re awesome. You’re a great friend to people and you have great friends in return (as seen below!). You’re kind and fun and beautiful (and an excellent dancer).

Slay, girl, slay.
