Shannon's High Fashion Session - Fisher Park, Greensboro NC (color)


A few weeks ago I got the pleasure of photographing Shannon for a high fashion session and I am so happy withe results! I always love shooting at fisher park and it was the perfect summer day for it, Shannon just GLOWED under that sun and shined in every image! I love how the first half, with her white dress and her hair (which I did) had a totally different feel than the ones with her in the crop top and high waisted shorts. The pears were a nice touch that my assistant thought would add something unique to the shoot and I liked it a lot.  We went from soft and dreamy to a more commercial feel. Shannon did a wonderful job and I am sure loving all my session this summer.

What I love about this shoot is all the colors involved. I love embracing the greens in a photograph and manipulating them some in post to create a more dreamy, film like look. Also enhancing the colors to make the photograph look warmer and more summer like. I love the colors the pears added and how it made the model stand out. However, photographing in an all green setting can get tricky with color bounce--green bounces off the leaves and onto the skin and creates a terrible color cast in the photo--which can be fixed in post!

Lindsey's Graduation Photos / NC State Campus Raleigh NC

This year, for the first time, I had inquires about shooting people's graduation photos for college. As I get older I am doing more senior photos, for high school, and graduation photos, from college, which I really like! Lindsey graduated from NC State this year, majoring in business management, and it was obvious by the way she was glowing that day that she was eager to begin a new chapter in her life! We covered the campus on a warm summer day and had a blast! Lindsey was a delight to photograph and I'm glad I got to spend my afternoon with her! I also love how beautiful the campus is too.

Collins Family Session / Fisher Park Greensboro NC

Thought I'd finally get around to showing off one my favorite family sessions! What made this session different from the others was that we had to do the session twice due to technical difficulties but each time went over fantastically! The lighting was beautiful that day and even in the middle of December it wasn't too cold outside. I was over enjoyed when I saw that they brought along their new puppy for the photos, which added a nice touch! I am hoping to do some more family sessions soon before summer rolls in. If you would like to have a family session done feel free to contact me at for more info! Collins Family_blog post_001 Collins Family_blog post_002 Collins Family_blog post_003
