Fall Family Photos | Sunnier With Twins | Clayton, NC Family Photographer

I have neglected blogging my sessions.  Today’s rainy spring weather has inspired me to catch up!  Especially with the sunny fall day I had shooting my featured family!

When all of the stars align and I get a fun family with perfect weather it is GOLD!

When Colleen asked me to shoot her family I was super excited!  She had the kids dressed in multiple cute outfits, and we both had some fun with props and things to add to personalizing their session!

You’d think that shooting a young set of twins would be challenging, but I’ll let you in on a secret.  I just make it all about having a good time.  Engage the kids, have them play (not pose) and get mom and dad in on the fun!  I absolutely LOVE the genuine expressions and playfulness of my families.  Who wants stiff and boring?

If you think you’d like to plan a fun session for yourself, your significant other, with your dog/cat children, or family I would love to hear from you!  This beautiful spring weather (when it isn’t raining) is perfect for photos!


Class of 2017 | Clayton High School Senior | Clayton, NC High School Senior Photographer

This past fall I had the opportunity to do Abe’s senior photos!  This young man is nothing short of amazing!  He will definitely excel in whatever he decides to pursue in life!  He is sweet, smart and handsome.  All the best things you could hope for in your children!

He and his sister CeCe have an incredible bond so it was no question that they had a few photos taken together.  Thanks Flores family for letting me be apart of this milestone!


It is not too late to get your senior photos in before you graduate!  So, if you are wanting to get some rockin’ photos that reflect you and your interest please CONTACT me!


Cute Couple | Big Duke Dog | Clayton, NC Couple & Pet Photographer

Sure I love shooting families; but shooting families that are made up of a couple and their fur babies are equally enjoyable!  So, when the Fitzpatricks brought Duke along for the photos I was thrilled!  He is massive!  But, in all reality he’s a spoiled baby.  (Aren’t they all?)

I naturally gravitate towards animals.  Ever since I was little I’ve had a pet.  If I could be, I’d be a crazy cat lady.  But, my husband has put the cap on for just the two we have now.

I’d love to get your animals included into your family photos!  Contact me to see what we can do!


P.S.  Keep an eye on my website/blog to see part II of the Fitzpatricks when I got to photograph them in/at their home!

Family of Five | Portofino Perfection | Clayton, NC Family Photographer

Oh. My. Goodness.  I absolutely LOVE all of the photos that I took during the Read family’s fall session.  We had a nice stroll through the pathways of the Portofino neighborhood.  The weather was perfection as well as the evening light and of course the Read family is always dressed like they are in a magazine.  I couldn’t have been more excited!  Let’s not foget that they brought along their adorable fur family member too!  Remi completed the family photos with nice, big bulldog smiles!

Let me capture your family this spring!  I promise it will be fun, easy, and genuine.  Use the CONTACT tab to send me a message!















Cute Couple & Their Dog Children | Include Your Pets | Clayton, NC Couple & Pet Photographer

A lot of times I will get asked if I will do a session with pets.  And my answer is ALWAYS yes (unless it is a snake….sorry)!  A lot of times my families are couples with fur babies.  To me, pets are and always will be family!  So, whether it is human children, or the furry variety I will work with you on getting them into your photos!

I had an amazing time with Jill and Damien and their three boys!  We had the perfect evening this past fall for some gorgeous photos.  Talk about genuine, heart-warming photos…these two were so natural with their affection for one another in front of my lens, it made me melt.

With spring right around the corner, foliage will start greening up and the weather will be perfect to get out for some updated photos!  Please contact me if you’d like to schedule something!
