    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!

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 ūüôā


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.

Jen + Her Boys| Raleigh Family Photographer

Here’s another post that should have happened long before now! Watching Jen (who is awesome) with her sons is so sweet. I can hardly believe how much the boys have grown since I last saw them. Tate is so playful¬†and Blake is such a good older brother. There’s a lot of love in this family and I’m glad to know them ūüôā

Taylor Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

“This is Otis. I love Otis.”

Well, actually it’s Nicole (who I’ve known for several years), Jeremy, and Otis, but I had to¬†take advantage of an opportunity to quote Pretty in Pink ūüėČ But, for real, Otis is so adorable. Those eyes. Those curls. I mean, come on ūüôā I’m overdue in posting this session, but am so glad to¬†do so today and show off some really great (and fun!) people.
