So excited to have spent time with this sweet family of four for a fall session on the beach in one of my most favorite spots in Pine Knoll Shores, NC When capturing family sessions with small children, so many things to consider - comfort - rapport - and their attention span is so limited - Our first thought would have been a pumpkin patch, because is the season for that exact reason - But, mom and dad decided to have a more coastal approach, the weather was so perfect and t

Why A Professional Photographer?
Hi! So happy to have you here...
I just wanted to start by saying that in today's world everyone has access to a digital camera, that can take beautiful images at any moment with a touch of a button with its automatic settings. Let's face it, almost everyone has one, this is the world we live in! So, you may ask: "Why not just have a friend or family member take my photographs?"
"Photography is an art; one that requires experience a
Wow! Seems as if 2015 has flown by us... Where did summer go?
We are a week away from Autumn and looking back at the past months, we have witnessed great moments: proposals, engagements, weddings, graduations, births and during the summer some incredibly happy family reunions were celebrated!
But, as the Fall approaches, and we find ourselves nearly booked solid the next 12 weeks - with Family sessions, birthdays and before we know it Christmas time will be here, and all

Every passing minute....
Funny thing! I find that at 2:25 am I am writing about ME... And the magnificent moment in which the struggle of self-consciousness suddenly vanished... Those who know me, are aware - I do not get in-front of the camera often and not just because I am always behind it, but in reality it is more because, my being overly conscious of my looks and flaws...
Although, some pictures have been taken can
Why hire a Professional Photographer? While reading my daily usual fare of articles - I cannot help, but to emphasize on the incredible importance of various points while considering hiring a 'photographer" for a special day such as a wedding venue or a session such as your child's birthday or family pictures....

The basics of this technique are quite simple: divide your picture into thirds vertically and horizontally, creating 9 equal squares, as shown in the photo to the right. Notice how the trees and the horizon fall in relatio
