Jones Family Session Preview | Raleigh Cary Durham Family Child Photographer

So great to spend some time photographing one of my favorite families on a perfect (and warm) fall day.  You may remember them from last year – the giant chess board images.

They are so much fun, and the kids are so kind to each other & love to goof around … love that!

Something so sweet about big brother & little brother:

I have known this young lady for several years now, and she is just a bright & wonderful person:

I think they have an explorer in the family!

Enjoy your preview guys – SO many more fun shots coming your way!



Holmes Bridal Portraits | Historic Yates Mill Park | Raleigh Cary Portrait Photographer



As you are reading this, I will either be shooting the Holmes/Gruenewald wedding, or almost finished!

It has been difficult this past month not to share some of these beautiful images from this amazing session … but here we go!

Some women are just meant to be brides:

This session took place in early October, and we were both happy that we found a little changing foliage to add the air of fall to her images.

Hello lovely:

This is my first bride, and she was up for anything …  a real sport climbing the rocks and even letting me try to pin string to her veil (more about that in a minute)!

When I booked this session I had a vision of creating a flying veil.  I brought a safety pin and fishing line with me, but it didn’t look natural.  In the end, my AWE-SOME assistant threw the veil and ran out of the frame, and we go these shots that I am VERY happy with :

Then I started playing with the reflections and snapped another all time favorite (that’s the Mill in the reflection):

Pretty little red shoes:

A more traditional image with some vibrant fall color:

 I worked her hard those two hours, and it’s pretty safe to say she was elated when I said “that’s a wrap”!!

Wedding images coming this week!
