Kristen + Mariela
West Point on the Eno // Durham, NC
Josh + Julie
Maternity Session // Durham, NC
Katie + Doman
Forest Hall // Pittsboro, North Carolina
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.
The Porter Family
Briar Chapel // Chapel Hill, NC
*I've got a super soft spot for home sessions. I think [especially with little ones] they might just be the ticket.
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.
Erika + Josh
Eno River State Park // Cole Mill Road
From the minute that I met Erika + Josh, I knew that they were my kinda people. I had so much fun exploring a little piece of the Eno with them & already (waaay) can't wait to photograph their wedding this December at the Durham Armory. It's going to be a beauty, for sure.
