I have photographed Matthew’s sister’s senior portrait in 2013, three years later it’s his turn to have some fun! It’s always been such an honor photographing siblings, he has mentioned as we were getting his photos done that ‘among all of my senior sessions his sister’s was his favorite one, but then again… he could be biased,’ he said. We had fun going through an abandoned building with no lights just using our cell phone flash lights and found a few empty rooms down the 2nd floor with great natural lighting for the rest of his photo session, such a brave guy to go through junk and sit on dirty chairs and steps for the sake of getting great images, i’m glad he trusted my creativity for the setting! So I guess after this session, he could say, this is by far his favorite Senior Portrait!

A week ago, I got an email from Micah’s mom, she wrote, “it’s that time of year again, and I need you for senior pics :)” At first glance, I thought it was a glitch that i’m getting an email from her about a Senior Session again because it feels as though I just did her son’s senior photos not too long ago, lo and behold, it’s her second son graduating this year and I just cannot believe how time flies. It gives me great joy that a parent would reach out to me again to do another session for her! Love it! I found this old small airport, Lake Ridge Aero Park in Durham which was an awesome location for his session, one of the owners of the place was so sweet to let us use the area. Micah was such a sport posing for me, and we were able to come up with a few good photos for him, so here they are! Enjoy!

My little girl has a few projects that needs to be done for school, I must say it’s a bit overwhelming sometimes, as she watched me put together one of her many school projects, she agreed to do this 1960s styled mini photo shoot with me for fun! We were able to find a few things here and there to put this together, the sun glasses, gloves, her dress and the vintage hat that has been sitting in my office closet. A lot of people have said that my daughter definitely knows how to “work it” in front of the camera, …uhm, yes she does! She’s getting the hang of it ever since she was a baby. If I tell her how to pose… she struggles a little, but once I say, “…just do your thang… give me your best shot!” ……Aaaaaand click, click click!!! She has grown up way too fast!

Meet Isabella Rose, I photographed her parents’ wedding in May of 2015… then almost a year later, a sweet baby girl was born! She’s definitely like the “cherry on top” that makes my job even more pleasurable. It took Bella about 3 hours then she finally fell asleep before we could even start taking photographs, she knew something was up, I could only imagine what she was thinking that day, “what is this new chick doing in my bedroom with a black little box thingy aiming at me?”. Her mama was such a big help making her as comfortable as possible to position her for the photos, i think i found a newborn session assistant! (wink! wink!) Baby Bella was 8 pounds and 1 ounce and was only a week old that day and i was able to capture her smile, . Her sweet big brother, Jackson wanted to hang out and help her mommy get a few things for the baby as we were getting ready to wrap up, Jackson is going to be such a good big brother. At the end of our photo session, her daddy got to hold and feed her, what a great way to end the day!

I always enjoy covering a wedding at one of my favorite venues, The Carolina Inn located in Chapel Hill. The best place to get inspired to get ideas for your home with a southern flair, from wood floors, crown molding, antique furnishings to framed artwork on the walls. No wonder Logan and Cayla chose to have their wedding at one of the finest hotels in the area, their wedding style was “Elegance meets the South” topped off with an awesome band that played american and french genre music from the 1940s which made the ambiance even more pleasurable, such a great couple to work with, so much love between the two of them. Seeing both of their parents hearts filled with such happiness for these two made the day feel more gratifying! What a privilege to work with one of New York’s Wedding Photographers, Julian Rubinik, and it’s been an honor to be a part of this beautiful event!
