Iris | Child Portrait Photographer

Sarah and I met in 9th grade, and she's one of those people who would play a big part in my biography if ever one were written: together over the years we've played soccer, acted in plays, gotten in lots of trouble, celebrated birthdays (we're six days apart), driven cross-country, planned our weddings, cried happy tears over the births of each others' children, and sad ones over each others' losses. Despite busy schedules and the thousands of miles that separate us, we talk nearly every week, but those realities do mean that we don't get to see each other very often. So despite the fact that it was the week leading up to Oliver's 7th birthday - which included party planning and visiting in-laws - when Sarah told me that she and her daughter Iris were going to be in Nashville visiting her parents last week, I knew I had to get there. This sweet girl is, after all, as close to a niece as I might ever have:Durham Family PhotographerDurham Family PhotographerDurham Family PhotographerDurham Family PhotographerDurham Family PhotographerDurham Family PhotographerDurham Family PhotographerDurham Family Photographer Sarah & Iris, Ralph & Harriette: I miss you already, but it was so good catching up... thank you for letting me crash your visit!

2012 in Review | Chapel Hill Photographer

Happy Holidays Hello and Happy New Year to my dear, long-lost internet friends - how are you? I hope you're all recovering from a wonderful holiday season and looking forward to great things in the year to come. As you might have noticed, I've been on a rather significant break from blogging, but I promise to rectify that in the coming weeks as I catch up on the rather extensive backlog of sessions and weddings I've accumulated. But I wanted to post before the year was out, and since the last days of December are always a rather introspective time - looking back on all that has happened and thinking about hopes and goals for the coming year - I thought I'd cap the year with a post of that nature. It's been a big one...

Of course, none of those things would've been possible without an ever-growing and totally amazing roster of clients... a quick rundown of which you'll find below. Thank you to each and every one of you and all the very best in 2013!

Chrissy & Jose | Durham Family Photographer

One of the amazing things about my job is the opportunity I get on a regular basis to peek at the lives of other people... not the superficial stuff, but the real interactions among couples, siblings, families, and even across generations. I am not a "sit here and smile" photographer - I take my time and wait until I can feel the rhythm of a situation, then click the shutter when the moment feels just right... just them. I'm happy to report that I seem to have a knack for connecting with genuinely happy, loving families and couples, but every now and then, I'm truly blown away. Jose & Chrissy had to work pretty hard to get four year-old Robbie to relax - like so many boys that age, he was pretty wound up at the prospect of a new person and a camera to show off for. But they were so patient & relaxed about it, just enjoying him and letting him be his energetic self while trying to position themselves and sweet little Sofia nearby, that when the photo magic started happening, it was pure gold:

I hope everyone's staying safe and warm this stormy Monday!
