Olivia (Part 2- The Big Reveal)

In addition to Olivia's Hanukkah photos, we also did a little "mother and daughter" set during their shoot so that they could include a little announcement in their holiday card...


Olivia (Part 1- Hanukkah)

I was super excited to get contacted to do this little girls winter holiday photos this year! Since the family is Jewish, we decided to do something a little different and infuse it with some Hanukkah themed items, including her cute menorah. This is only part 1 from our session... part 2 to come ;)


Ava and Family (+ behind the scenes)

I had a wonderful family session this past weekend with this little cutie, her sweet parents, and Nana too! It's been raining pretty much every day here for the past month, so I was preparing us all that morning to be shooting in the rain (it was raining on my way there, but stopped temporarily just for our shoot!). Regardless of the weather though, Ava's smile brought a little sunshine to our session. 

It was also obvious is was "that time of year" (for holiday photos) because when we arrived, there were two other photographers and families shooting at our location, and by the time I left about an hour or so later, an additional four were there! And because it is "that time of year" (when you should already have your holiday sessions booked, or should be booking a last-minute session now), I also wanted to take the opportunity to share a little "behind the scenes" stuff with you, in case you've never shot with me before. As a viewer, you may see the two images from any particular session that I upload to my Facebook page, or the 5-8 photos I may upload here to the blog. But what you don't see, unless you are the client, is the album of edited images I provide to the client to choose their selected images from, which for a full or regular session is typically filled with 25+ photos in it. 

So I shared one "sneak peek" photo on Facebook (view here) the day of the session, am now sharing a selection of images (below) on the blog, and am sharing with you the viewer, this one time, what this clients album looks like (click HERE). Hopefully this will give you a better idea what you'd receive if you were to book a shoot with me, and give you plenty of opportunities to see Ava's great smile and little personality too ;)

Gemma Grows, Part 13

It's been awhile since I've shared one of these, so these photos are pretty much from February through October...

... This little monkey is now 3 years old! I can't believe how quickly the time has flown by. Thanks for following along in her photographic journey from birth to 3, in "Gemma Grows".


Blue Durham (Family Session)

This family is not only adorable, but they are troopers. We had less than ideal weather conditions for their family session, but they didn't seem to be phased by it and continued to have smiles on their faces. I love their color-coordinated outfits in blue, which we paired with some blue lights once we found a special little spot indoors on the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC.
