Congratulations to the Class of 2013

The weather was a threat during this entire week.  6-10 inches of rain fell in the area and plans were made to postpone graduation until the following morning.  Miraculously the skies cleared and the sun came out to allow Richmond Senior High School to call the names of nearly 400 seniors to receive their diplomas.  30 minutes after the ceremony ended, the clouds gathered and began dropping more rain.

Savannah’s Sr Pics

0

After a few months of communication with Savannahs mother, we finally were able to schedule a session.   During the session I learned that I was photographing the busiest teenage in the world.  I now realize now why it was difficult to schedule her photo session.  We were fortunate to have decent weather during Savannah’s photo session.   Winter weather returned during the few days following.   We agreed to meet at Weymouth Center in Southern Pines, NC.  Upon arrival I noticed that some tree removal was in process.  With the heavy equipment on the grounds, plenty of photography locations remained for us to use.  Best of luck to Savannah during her college career.

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.

Congratulations to Cheanna and Brandon

0

I remember the spring evening when I received the first call from Cheanna concerning her wedding photography needs.  I could tell in her tone that she was excited about getting married in November.   The fact the her wedding venue recommended me, my website appeared first in her online search and I was planning to be visiting near her Wedding location during the wedding date was all of the confirmation that Cheanna needed to select me as her photographer.  I enjoyed the meeting with Cheanna during the following eight months and my excitement grew as the big day grew near.  As expected the wedding ceremony was great.  I have to compliment the musician and vocalist who performed during the ceremony.   They were both very good.  After a great session of formals we traveled to Pinehurst to the Fair Barn to proceed with the reception.  The decorations and food were very good as was expected.  I was impressed with the many toasts and wonderful words that family and friends had to say about the newlyweds.  The planning was very successful and I wish Cheanna and Brandon a very happy future together.

Congratulations to Amanda and Robert

After meeting with Amanda and Robert a few times, exchanging emails and several phone calls, I was looking forward to being part of their big day.  Amanda and Robert chose a wonderful location or their wedding ceremony.   The Hayloft in McLeansville, N.C. is a working farm that also hosts weddings and receptions.  Although Hurricane Sandy had passed by the area a day prior, the conditions were near perfect for photography.  Besides a few gusts of wind and a bit cooler than wanted temps, the day appeared to proceed as planned.  Everyone was on time, the guests were very pleasant and there was a wedding coordinator handling the schedule. I enjoyed watching the family and friends hangout and enjoy the celebration.  My favorite part of the day may have been the toasts.   I enjoy the stories that people tell about the bride and groom during the receptions.  i wish the best for Amanda and Robert.

Autumn’s Last Storm – Hinson Lake

0

Another photography goal has been met. Our State Magazine selected one of my photos for their Tar Heel Image page of the November 2012 issue.

Hinson Lake is a beautiful place and I shoot portrait and landscape photos frequently at this location.  I was lucky to catch this scene on a cloudy day.  It’s one of my favorite landscape photos and have a print of this pic hanging in my office. This photo was submitted for the annual photo contest but didn’t win. However, I was excited when Our State contacted me in September wanting to use the photo in the November issue.

Our State is my favorite magazine and I’ve wanted to see one of my photos printed in this publication for a long time.  My next goal will be to earn an assignment from Our State.

 

This scene and various others are available for print purchasing from my Website.

11/2/2012- I received the following letter in the mail and it made my day!

NASCAR Returns to The Rock!

0

I was excited about helping the local newspaper photograph one of the biggest events to take place at the legendary Rockingham Speedway.  The last NASCAR event at “The Rock” was a Cup Series race on Feb. 22, 2004.   Current track owner, Andy Hillenburg, purchased the track at auction four years ago and has done an amazing job of restoring the track and promoting the return of NASCAR. This was the first Camping World Truck Series race to be hosted at Rockingham Speedway and I doubt that it will be the last.  The April 15th event drew the second largest crowd of the season and fans were provided a great race.  Congratulations to Kasey Kahne for winning the race, but the real winner is Hillenburg.

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.

Presley’s 6 month session.

Presley’s first session with me was in my studio just before Christmas.  Presley was a very calm baby and provided many photo opportunities.  Presley is now bigger and stronger with a great laugh.  I am still not sure of he was laughing at the flying bunny or me.

 

The Bledsoe family.

0

I have had the privilege to photograph Stephanie and other family members in the past. I was happy to learn that her family was visiting from GA and wanted to schedule a family portrait session with me. The weather in this area has not been consistent and we were lucky to have a day with mild temperatures.    As we moved around the Leak Wall Gardens the young lady of the family quickly learned how to strike a pose at the right time.  It didn’t take us long to realize that she needed a portion of the session all to herself.  I enjoyed working with the Bledsoe family and glad to know that they made it back home following a snow storm that rushed across the area.

Congratulations to 2011 newlyweds!

These couples started new lives in 2011 and I wish the best for them in 2012 and for many year to come. Thank you for choosing Jimmy McDonald Photography to collect memories for you on your special day!

Brandie and Houston

Brandie and Houston drove from Greensboro one evening for their photos session.  We met in Downtown Hamlet to shoot some couples photos for them.  While we shooting some random shots on a set of railroad tracks a freight train slowly approached us and stopped.  this could not have happened at a better time as if we had ordered it for the photo session.   I enjoyed working with the couple and look forward to working with them in the future.
