Kalia: Lifestyle Portraits, Durham, North Carolina Photographer

This woman.  She is the most patient, thoughtful and craziest person I know.  We worked together for years at Apple and I miss her SO much!  She recently started blogging about natural hair and asked for some headshot for her blog and I was thrilled to do these for her! 

You should check her out!  Kinky 4C Beauty  She posts reviews and hair supply recipes.  Features other "natural" beauties and offers advice on what's working for her and what may work for you! 

I miss you girl!! <3

Enjoy some of my favorite images from her session below! 


Sarah+Mikey: Engaged! Joyner Park, Wake Forest, North Carolina

Sarah+Mikey=Perfect Fit These two just get it.. they laugh together and love each other whole heartedly.  I am lucky to have them as one of my couples for 2014!  We met up and did a quick engagement session at Joyner Park in Wake Forest back in the fall.  I've had the pleasure of working with Mikey for over three years now.. he's an amazing cinematographer and has been such a help with me on a couple projects.  Sarah and I exchanged emails and texts and she matched my emoticons smiley for smiley.  She has such an awesome heart and I love how she says "groovy" a lot.  It's definitely her tag line and so much like her personality.. laid back & groovy.  <3

Enjoy some of my favorites from their engagement session!  Looking forward to their wedding in June!

Sadie+Justin: Married! Outer Banks, North Carolina Wedding Photographer

Sadie and Justin were married on the beach in Kill Devil Hills back in June and it was beautiful.. Total DIY wedding where Sadie and friends came together to put all the finishing touches on their day! So many KIDS!! The most amazing and beautiful children.. I had no idea there would be this many kids and how wonderful they'd be in front of my lens!  I remember asking Sadie what the significance of the Buccaneer Motel was and come to find out they'd been coming here for years from Ohio... like 12+ years ever summer.  So in a way this place totally feels like home and was the perfect setting for these two to say I will.. <3 This wedding was full of family and friends, cousins and siblings.  I had so much fun hanging out with these guys and have the opportunity to capture this super intimate wedding for them.. I wish they lived closer!!!!

The Martinez Family : Fall Session, Wilmington, North Carolina Lifestyle Family Photographer

I can't believe I had not blogged this session before now! I've become too lazy and satisfied with posting albums on facebook.. this will change.  :)

Here's this beautiful family the first time we met!  Back in November of 2012 we met on a wonderfully overcast chilly morning at Chandler's Wharf in Wilmington, North Carolina.

You can really see how much they've grown in just SIX MONTHS!  Crazy, right!

Enjoy this beautiful lifestyle session and check out their latest session here! :)
