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.

West Point on the Eno | Engagement Session.


Katie + Doman

West Point on the Eno // Durham, NC

Katie + Doman's engagement session made me extra, extra excited about photographing their wedding next Fall at Chatham Mills. Not only did I get to meet their cats + talk to them for too long about ramen, but I also got watch them make each other laugh for about two hours straight. Seriously. These two really know how to crack each other up + it is the best.

Wedding Day

Stepping into the Dress

If you read my recent interview with Wedding Lovely, then you know that I absolutely love photographing brides + grooms as they get ready on their wedding day. The quiet, the excitement, and the anticipation that can be captured during the moments before the ceremony are so precious & I love being able to preserve every last drop of them. My hope is always to capture a visual story of the day, that will spark memories + feelings for all the years to come.
