Fleeting | Durham Family Photographer

Most of the time, people call me to schedule portrait sessions to mark some kind of occasion - a birth or a birthday, a pregnancy, an engagement, etc. I do love making portraits just for fun, though, and was so happy when Chrissy and Jose called about doing just that - celebrating this one, fleeting moment in the life of their little family... just because.

I think it's easy to romanticize it when you're looking forward to it or perhaps back on it, but when you're in the middle of it all, it's a lot of work, and between that and the pressures of life and jobs and all the annoying responsibilities of adulthood, you can quickly start to lose focus on the beauty and the joy that makes it all worthwhile. What I loved most about my time with Chrissy & Jose was that they seemed perfectly at peace with the chaos - appreciated it, even - and through it all, had so much fun with each other.

Sneak Peek: Annette, Scott & Co. | Chapel Hill Family Photographer

What do you get when you take 11, 7, and 5 year-old brothers who are out of school for the day, tell them they have to dress in certain clothes, brush their hair, and be cooperative and sweet to each other for a portrait session first thing in the morning? I'll give you a hint: usually, not this:

Seriously? These were some of the easiest kids I've ever had the pleasure of photographing... if they get along half this well on a regular basis, I think I'm going to have to spend time at Annette & Scott's house taking notes on their parenting techniques! We got some really fantastic family photos, and I wasn't sure which one to put up first, but I thought this was just too much fun not to share...

I hope everyone's having a lovely holiday Monday... Happy Veteran's Day!

A Complete Family Portrait | Carrboro Family Photographer

When Meredith contacted me about taking photographs of her family, I very quickly realized she really, truly wanted pictures of the FAMILY - not just the kids or other small combinations - everyone together. As it turns out, Meredith is a talented photographer, and like many moms, is always behind the camera rather than in front of it... and I can tell you from personal experience: that gets old. No matter how much you might hate having your picture made, I'm sure somewhere deep down, you also don't want anyone forgetting that you were actually there! Anyway, family photos were what she wanted, and family photos were what we got! Doing so involved a fair amount of game-playing and coaxing, as four and six year-old boys don't sit still for long, but I think it was pretty worth it in the end...Chapel Hill Family PhotographyChapel Hill Family PhotographyChapel Hill Family PhotographyChapel Hill Family PhotographyMeredith & Lee, thank you so much for having me over to play! I had so much fun I had to take a nap when I got home  :D  I'm thrilled we were able to get some photos of all FOUR of you for your walls!
