Katie & Jon's Haw River Ballroom Wedding

Katie & Jon's Haw River Ballroom Wedding

Hello hello... welcome to the new website! Normally at this time of year, the blog is running full-tilt, but the truth is that the last month or so has found me focused on building an entirely new site, which is live as of today!

I thought a lot about what I wanted to share for the first post on the new site, and ultimately decided that Katie & Jon's Haw River Ballroom wedding last fall was the perfect choice, both because it was AMAZING (see photographic evidence below), and because as you poke around the redesigned Megapixie website, you might notice a rather big change:

The weddings have disappeared.

If you know me, you've probably known that I've been scaling back on weddings for a while now. It's been a struggle, as I love working with engaged couples and participating in the all the amazing, creative ways they choose to celebrate their commitments, but as my business has grown, I've had to make some choices about where to focus my energies, and so I've chosen to concentrate on the work I do for families. Mind you: when the right couples come along, I'll still happily work with them, but in general, you can expect to see fewer white dresses and more sweet little ones when you come to visit.

With that said, enjoy these... Jon & Katie are the kind of couple that have made this decision such a hard one!

So many great people and places made this wedding what it was:

Now go take a peek around the new site and drop me a line to let me know what you think!

The Duke Farm | Starting Fresh Cookbook Portraits

For those of you who hadn't seen my news already on Facebook, I'm very excited to announce that I've been signed on to photograph a cookbook being co-authored by Ali Rudel of This and That Jam and Elizabeth Turnbull of Old Havana Sandwich Shop. The working title of the book, scheduled to go to press in the Fall of 2014, is Starting Fresh: Stories from the Tobacco Town that Found Redemption in Food, and it is going to be fantastic. Ali & Elizabeth are both hugely talented chefs and could easily put together a cookbook all on their own, but the vision for this project is greater - it seeks to tell the tale of Durham's vibrant food culture in both locally-sourced recipes and the stories behind the people and places that have helped put Durham on the national foodie map. Enter: me! In addition to the food photography that you'd expect on the pages of just about any cookbook, Elizabeth and Ali were looking for portraits of their contributing farmers, chefs, and entrepreneurs... and as soon as they said the word "portrait," I was sold. And so paperwork was signed, hands were shaken hugs were given, and on a cold, sunny morning last week, I got started on what promises to be a huge, and hugely rewarding project.Starting Fresh Cookbook Portrait PhotographyEmily Sloss helped start the Duke Farm when she was an undergraduate studying Public Policy; she loved the project so much that when she graduated, she stayed on to expand and manage the farm, which hosts classes for the university, provides produce to the various food vendors on campus, and runs a small CSA. I'm looking forward to trying the beet slaw recipe she's contributing to the book... perhaps with some of the beets she's planting here: Starting Fresh Cookbook Portrait PhotographyStarting Fresh Cookbook Portrait Photography

I can't wait to share more of these as the project continues! For more, be sure to follow the Starting Fresh facebook page and blog, where recipes will be shared and updates will be given. If you're into Pinterest, you can keep up that way, too!

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!
