Parker Family | Raleigh, NC Family Photography

A warm summer family session on the beach! If its time to update the family portrait it might as well be amazing, am I right?! The Parker family was SO darn sweet and I LOVE how this session went. Erika really loves the beach but since that would be a pretty far drive we decided to meet up at the local lake and we thought Jordan Lake would be nice and was actually perfect! I love the warm golden sunlight and I def don't mind that I get to walk barefoot through the sand for my job.  Alrighty, enough of my talking. Keep on scrolling to see the rest of this summer sesh!

Tudor Family Portraits | Raleigh, NC

A few months ago, I was walking into the gym when I spotted a cute little pregnant mom I had never seen before! She seemed pretty cool so I had to say Hi and adopt her into my favorite workout class before she got snagged by the Pilates club. ha ha, but seriously! ;) Little Liam is the the newest addition to this family and how perfect is that name!  I knew we had to do this fresh spring shoot to capture her growing family. Graham and Liam are literally the sweetest brothers and I had a ton of fun capturing their energy and cheeky little faces!

Dodson | Family Portraits

Is it Monday again?  Sometimes, I seem to get so much done on my weekends. It might be because of the amount of coffee I drink or, most likely, because I get to work with and photograph some really lovely people!  Over memorial day weekend I enjoyed getting to know and photograph the Dodson family, complete with their miniature schnauzer puppy. Last fall, I met and photographed their daughter Jillian for her high school Senior portraits. If you want (and you should) you can check out that beautiful session here.  This family session was shot at the Historic Yates Mill and I just cant ever get over how pretty it is there.
