Shannon & Ben Couple Session / Umstead Park / Raleigh, NC

One of my best friends Shannon is no stranger to being in front of the camera, she has been a spectacular model for in past photo shoots. We have discussed doing a couple session for her and her boyfriend Ben for a while and I was so glad that our schedules linked up so we could actually do it! Bracing the extreme heat (this has been one of the hottest summers) and putting on our smiles we ventured into the woods of Umstead Park in Raleigh. It was a gorgeous park, the light trickled through the trees beautifully! Although we did become victims to a chigger nest (their bites are vicious!!) we had a blast and the images definitely show the great time and the love between Shannon and Ben. Can't wait for more shoots in the Triangle!

Ashley Model Session // Greensboro NC - Midkiff Farm

Ashley is one of my favorite models to photograph! This was my third time shooting with her, I first photographed her for my spring portfolio for school where I had a 70s vogue theme going on (hopefully I'll get around to posting those photos too!) Anyways, I was dying to have another session with her so we headed out to one of my favorite places to shoot and went with it, with very little prep. It was rough start trying to figure out what style to go for but once we got into the swing of it we had a lot of fun shooting! Ashley is such a gorgeous girl and is a natural in front of the camera! I'm hoping next time we get to work together we will do something more commercial and edgy!

Tory's Fashion Shoot

OH MY GOODNESS! I love, love, love doing photo shoots like these! There's something about doing fashion work that makes my heart melt, I love working with beautiful models like Tory who are rocking some beautiful outfits. Despite the super windy and cold day Tory did such a spectular job during her session, luckily I had my good friend Nikki help out with lighting and other things like that. I worked with Tory before for a school assignment and couldn't help bu ask her to model for me again in a much more relaxed, fashion shoot. She is so gorgeous and I'm super excited to start doing shoots like this again!_MG_8815 _MG_8850 _MG_8959 _MG_9260 _MG_9271
