Birthday Session | Raleigh Family Photographer

This session was a ton of fun. It was the daughter's birthday and we did a lot of running around, not to mention playing in trees and scoping out the biggest koi. She had recently seen Kung Fu Panda, as you can see from the cool yoga pose she's doing with her grandpa : ) Be prepared for a long post!

Florida Trip Photos | Raleigh Family Photographer

I'm a few weeks late in posting this, but here are some pictures from the trip down to Florida. We had a wonderful time hanging out with family, celebrating my mom's birthday, and putting Talah in the pool for the first time!



Just a little Florida greenery : )












Talah fell asleep in the car on the way from Stuart to Orlando. She hadn't even finished her food before nodding off. Just look at her messy little face!

Enso and Talah at the Maitland Art Center | Raleigh Family Photographer

I'm a little behind in posting pictures from the trip to Florida. On my next post I'll include more from that trip. For now, here are some pictures taken at the Maitland Art Center. I got to take some pictures of my nephew, Enso, with Eddie. Enso is hilarious because he loves to do the chicken dance and will sometimes walk around flapping one of his "wings" absentmindedly, like it's just a natural thing for him to do. Look up "Enso" on Wikipedia. It's pretty much the coolest name ever.


I also took some pictures of Talah while we were there. It was fun to watch the cousins figuring each other out. The Maitland Art Center is pretty amazing, by the way. It's a dreamy place for a photographer. I would have taken more pictures everywhere there, but it was ridiculously hot and Talah was starting to get a little ornery and I really couldn't blame her! Laresa didn't want her picture included here, but she was there and took the picture of me with Talah toward the bottom : )










In our version of the story, Little Red Riding Hood is the victor.

Maddy and Luke | Raleigh Children's Photographer

The Messer family will be moving, so they asked me to come take some pictures of the kids (Maddy and Luke) hanging out at the house and I was thrilled to do it! We got to spend time playing Ariel on the rock, reading, playing with cars, dressing up, and making "carpet cookies." Officer Luke was around to give out tickets when necessary : )

Thanks for inviting me to your home!
