Forest Theatre + Duke Gardens | Engagement Session.


Collin + Michelle

Engagement Session // Durham, NC

Collin + Michelle are two very special people whose love for one another was a true honor to capture. We met for their engagement session at Forest Theatre in Chapel Hill + strolled about the amphitheater with their two pups, Alfalfa Sprout + Grover, before heading over to Sarah P. Duke Gardens. There, they showed me the very bench where they were engaged + we explored the grounds together a bit more. The whole evening was quiet and dreamy + filled with lovely conversation in between shots - it was the perfect way to get to know one another before their intimate wedding at 21C Museum Hotel Durham.

Duke Park | First Birthday Portraits.


Charles Turns One

Duke Park // Durham, North Carolina

I met Charles + his parents at Duke Park playground on a quiet Sunday morning for his first birthday portraits. They brought along a few of his current favorite things (*one of them being a very awesome bubble machine) + we strolled around singing, playing, and making a whole lot of funny faces. The entire session felt beautifully relaxed + all about documenting this little snippet of time. In short, it was lovely.
