Kaitlin and Ryan’s Engagement Session

0

I’m looking forward to Kaitlin and Ryan’s May 2013 wedding day. If there engagement session is any indication of the fun that they will have on their wedding day, I would hate not to be a witness.  I photographed Kaitlin’s sister’s wedding a few years ago and remember the family very well.  Fun was had by all, including the photographer.  I enjoy seeing people have a good time and I have no doubt that Kaitlin and Ryan’s wedding day will be very similar.

The Brinks family at OBX

0

During a visit to the Outerbanks of North Carolina is was out during sunset capturing the clouds of a storm moving to the north.  The wind was swift, but helped keep the storm away and let the sun peep in and out of the clouds.  As I had my tripod positioned on a dock a gentleman approached me to ask question about photography.  After a brief introduction and conversation about my setup he asked if I would be willing to shoot some photos of his children.  Unfortunately it was too dark and I didn’t have my flash set up with me at the time.  However, we made plans to meet the next morning for some photos on the beach.   I was more than happy to spend some time shooting beach portraits of this family from Richmond VA.

Lenea and Wade’s Production.

0

For as long as I have know Lenea she has had a love for the stage and a variety of live entertainment.  Participating on the technical side of numerous events made Lenea want to produce her own wedding in similar fashion. Participants, costumes, lighting and sound are just a few of the elements of a live show.    Lenea and Wade applied similar elements to their wedding.  They were the characters of their own production on stage with special lighting and sound.  It was a great show that continued to the reception hall.  The time and effort appeared to be worth every minute.  Congratulations to you both!

Cottle Family

0

I was happy to receive a call from the Cottle family requesting my services to photograph their family.   I find it interesting to watch newborn twins interact with each other.  Little Emma also got a chance to do her own thing whole being photographed.  As with most children, she had a lot of energy and lead me around the playground without any time to stop and catch my breath.  Best wished to the young Cottle family.

Cooke Kids

0

I had the pleasure to spend some time photographing the Cooke kids during a beautiful spring morning in Southern Pines.  We met at Weymouth Gardens and despite the fact that it was a bit damp out from rain the day before we managed to use the facility to get some nice photos for them to share.  Young Ian warmed up to the camera quickly and provided some great poses.  It was nice working with the Cooke family.


Elise Senior Photo Session

0

I had the privilege of meeting Elise and her family in Cheraw South Carolina one evening to shoot Elise’s Senior photos.   Downtown Cheraw has several beautiful areas that we used.   It was interesting to me that Elise was an Audrey Hepburn fan and wanted to use a poster during her photo shoot.

A brave mother.

0

In my opinion, it takes a brave mother to wake up two boys early on a Sunday morning, dress them in white pants and expect them to stay clean during a photo shoot.  Sabrina managed to pull this task off and still make it to church on time.  Both boys, considering the time of day were full of energy and had a good time playing outside.

Spring Photos – Emma stole the show.

0

This was one of the first 2011 spring photo sessions for me.  Once cute, little Emma got warmed up to the camera it was on!  She  provided some great poses as well as candid opportunities for me to photograph.  We had a wonderful day for pics and thanks to Rita for calling me to shoot more photo for her.  I love repeat customers!  I look forward to the BIG family photo shoot.

Congratulations to Sandy and Cameron!

Sandy and Cameron’s wedding was a traditional Irish wedding with bagpipes and just the right amount of green.  The theme continued at the reception hall with beautiful decorations and the first dance music performed on bagpipes.  This was a great way for me to  start the 2011 wedding season! Cameron and Sandy had a wonderful ceremony and reception. Best wishes to you both!!

Senorita Jami

This photo shoot is one of my favorite type to schedule.  We started just as the sun was beginning to set and move fast to get as many shots and poses as possible.  I enjoy the golden light that is provided from the setting sun.  I also like shooting against the sunset and capturing some natural backlighting.    I usually have a list of poses at various areas within walking distance in my head as we begin the photo shoot.  Jami gave some great moves and kept up with me like she knew what I was going to direct next.

Hillary and Monroe

Hillary and Monroe contacted me about shooting photos of them for their parents Christmas present.   We had to keep things on the down low and chose to meet at Weymouth Gardens in Moore County.  The fact that this took place late fall, the gardens are still beautiful and offered a good assortment of areas for us to use.  The lack of blooming plants and warm air didn’t prevent people from visiting the gardens.  Several people were walking pets and two other photo sessions were also taking place.  Hillary and Monroe are a great sister/brother combo and I enjoyed working with them.    Since Christmas, I have had the chance to visit their father’s office and view several photos from this session around his desk.

Hannah stay!!

0

Hannah loves to fetch a tennis ball.  She loves it so much that she would fetch 24/7 if someone was willing to throw the ball all of the time.  She is very patient in waiting for the ball to be thrown.  This allowed me to capture the pics below.

The packing house with Hadley and Sophia.

I had to work  fast to capture photos during this photo session.  The wind was blowing cold air and the girls were freezing.  Considering the uncomfortable weather,  the girls cooperated very well.  Little Sophia proved that she was one tough little girl by jumping back into action after doing a face plant into the dirt.  No fear!!!

Thanks to Christopher for assisting me with this photo sesssion.

Around town with Grady.

0

This senior photo session was arranged to take place in Downtown Rockingham, NC just before the holidays.   Cold temperatures and wind is a factor when shooting during this time of year.  Fortunately the sun kept the air from feeling too cold while we walked around downtown.  I like the colors from various buildings around town and Grady did a good job smiling when requested by mom.

Mabe family potrait session

0

This photo session took place during one of the most beautiful days of the 2010 fall season.  The trees had just begun to change and the overcast sky prevented the temps form being too hot.   The Mabe family came out prepared for several group and individual shots in hope of capturing a set of photos for their new home.  Skipping rocks was probably the most memorial part of this photo shoot for the three boys.

Heather in Hamlet

After this photo shoot with Heather, I think that modeling should be in her future.  Considering the cool weather she did a great job moving positions and flashing a smile when I aimed the camera at her.   Heather seemed very comfortable in front of the camera.
