The M Family: Bear Creek Family Photographer

I’m so glad I was able to meet this family before we movd.. I’ve known this mom since high school and I got to travel home to photograph her and her family.  We met at a little park beside our old high school and had a nice time talking and taking pictures.  I love the colors in their outfits.  It just screams Spring!

Thanks for having me take your family portrait.  Enjoy!


I love this peaceful image of the family reading together.

The fun candid moments have the most emotion and that’s what family photography is all about for me.

You always need that image of everyone looking at the camera.  Grandparents love it.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.  I’m a sucker for backlighting on curls.  See all the warm light on her hair.  It makes my hair happy.

Who needs toys when you have dirt?  I love toddlers.  Their sense of amazement and discovery tickles me.

The only problem with taking pictures at a park is that if a playground is in sight, you’ll be asked if they can go play no less than a dozen times.  After we did the photo shoot, I hung out on the playground for a few minutes to watch her play and chat with mom.  There’s no greater happiness for a “two in May” year old than a slide.

Brother & Sister: Oak Ridge Family Photographer

 I met these two at the Old Mill of Guildford for a few siblings portraits for their grandparents.  Don’t they look great?  I love the sister’s hair.  Backlighting on curls gets me every time.  We got to include their dog in a few poses, which was really fun.  I love the red bandana to go with the red mill.

If you stop at the Old Mill, pick up some sweet potato muffin mix.  I made some this morning and they were delicious!
