S&J Family Session {ATC} Durham, NC Photographer

This sweet three year old was so fun to work with! I do not want to share too many since these will be Christmas cards! The love sweet J showed for his mother was incredible. He was such a well mannered and fun little boy to work with! ~Enjoy!

Fields Family {Page Walker House} Cary, NC Photographer

I had such a great time with this sweet family. The kids were so fun to work with! We explored this location as it was a first for both of us! I think it was very nice and had some pretty neat spots hidden around it that we found! I just LOVED the sass and handsomeness in the two older siblings. They were a blast! ~Enjoy!

Sweet Eliza {Newborn Session} Durham, NC Photographer

I was contacted by this expecting mother several months before her due date. I was so excited I was finally booking another baby GIRL! She was so great for her session. She was only awake for the first few minutes of the entire two hours and mom nursed her right to sleep. I was also thrilled to have hard wood floors and a super cute wooden cradle to work with. It is always fun to go to clients homes for these sessions. My goal is to make the photos as simple and personal as possible. Almost all of the blankets and headbands in these shots are from the clients. Feel free to read more about my newborn sessions here. Enjoy!

The ex teacher in me loves this shot!

Often moms are not up for family shots so soon after birth. I love it when they are. Especially when there is good lighting and plenty of space to do it! How adorable is this family?  I love the look on big sisters face.
"I just don't know about this whole sister thing yet!"

Big sister wanted to post like her new baby sister! So stinkin' cute.

Fall Mini Sessions {West Point on the Eno} Durham, NC Photographer

Today's mini sessions went off without a hitch! Ok, that's a little bit of a fib. The weather was yuck and it rained my whole drive there! HOWEVER... it did clear up enough to get two sessions in and they turned out beautifully! And guess what!?!?!?! Since some folks had to reschedule, I opened a whole set of minis for next Sunday! They are booking fast and I only have two spots left. Email me at if you are interested!

This is Heidi from Heidi Joy Photography with one of her sets of clients!

Ashleigh {2014 Senior Session} Durham, NC Photographer

This senior was absolutely stunning. I drove out to her Grandmother's land and horse farm in Hurdle Mills, NC and the scenery was absolutely breathtaking. The news on my way there was saying how the cloud coverage has been 80% or more for eleven consecutive days!  I even went early because it was so dark and I was afraid if I waited much longer we would be poured on! I was so happy to see the sun was peeking through the clouds as I pulled into the town of Hurdle Mills. I think I smiled the rest of the way there! The lighting was almost perfect the entire time. The hour drive for this session was totally worth it for this stunning senior! I hope she (and you!) enjoy these as much as I do!

Dasiy+Matt [engagement session] Durham, NC Photographer

My brother and I played little league baseball with Matt in grade school and I went to middle and high school with both of these adorable love birds! I was so excited when I got the email that they wanted me to do their engagement photos! We met downtown near Bull City Burger and walked a lot and even drove some together to fun walls and different locations! Being that we all love Durham so much, this was a super fun session to do together! Matt works downtown so he even knew of some super fun painted walls that were slightly hidden. I hope you enjoy their photos as much as I do and I cannot wait to hear more details as they continue to plan their wedding!

Vintage Styled Session {Durham, NC Photographer}

Heidi and I have been talking about taking our kiddos out to this field for months now. We went out there several years ago and it is so funny how far our photography skills have come! Heidi had a vintage suitcase and an awesome vintage camera. I rummaged around my grandmas house and found the washboard, trunk, books and globe. We had a blast setting it all up and bribing our kiddos with m&m's and marshmallows! Oh yes, and puffs for sweet baby Ro. They were all troopers and we had so much fun. I can't wait to get out there again.  Feel free to contact me at
