Harker Heights Photographer


My first Mini Session Saturday was last month and I’m so excited I got to see this beautiful, little lady again.  She has grown so much from when I met her dressed as a little ladybug for Halloween.  She’s so adorable and smart with learning baby sign language.  I can’t wait to see her again this summer when we do family portaits.

One year old sessions are one of my favorites to photograph.  I love getting to play with balloons and bubbles (who can resist popping a bubble?)  For this session, we met at Carl Levin Park and walked to the overgrown field that’s for sale.  I love how the photography can transform places like that.  When you focus just right and all the busyness blurs away…  just like life, when you focus and have you perspective just right, all the ugly just faded away.  Love it.

Thanks, Olivia’s mommy and daddy, for participating in the birthday minis!  Hope you enjoy the photos!

Pittsboro Photographer: Christmas Mini Sessions

If you’re the type that doesn’t even want to think about Christmas until December, you might want to close your eyes and cover your ears!

I’ve been brainstorming this session since the summer and I’m so excited to see it come to life.  The kids were adorable in their Christmas jammies and completely suprised me by prefering to play with the ornaments over my beloved reindeer (these reindeer have been a Christmas tradition since my childhood).

Once again, I owe The Baby’s Room a huge thank you for allowing me to use their store as my studio.  Angela was awesome at keeping me on track and greeting everyone as they came in.

Love this set up?  Hate that you missed out on the fun? I’ll be hosting a round two on December 8th.  Email me for to book your spot.


Still the one: Pittsboro Couples Photography

Oh boy, did this move make me fall behind!  I can’t believe I’m just now finding time to blog this session when I could barely keep myself from posting all of them on Facebook while I was editing.  I met this couple at The Factory in Kernersville, NC before we moved.  I’m sad that I left this location behind it’s so perfect for many different types of sessions.

I absolutely adore this session.  This couple has been married a few years and decided to get portraits done for their anniversary since they didn’t have awesome engagement photos.  When she told me she loved the 1960’s/Mad Men type style, I went on a Google/Pinterest spree to get inspired.  Main Street gave us the best backdrop and they rocked it.  I love this dress she wore to a recent wedding and her husband gets brownie points for wearing red suspenders.  Don’t they look amazing together?  I really wanted a more sexy/romantic feel without being too… umm… risque… and I think they pulled it off perfectly.

I’ll have to post part two of this session too.  After they rocked this look, we changed it up to some “normal” clothes (blue jeans and t-shirts) and the session took a different turn.  It really is amazing how the wardrobe can change the overall feel of a session.  That’s one reason I now offer in person consultations so we can talk about outfits in depth and can be sure the atmosphere and feel behind your session is just what you had in mind.
