We love our job and our biggest reward comes from happy clients and just enjoying seeing our art come to life but when we do get awards especially from unexpected places that we don’t do advertising it really means a lot. So we are excited to announce that we have won the award for best family photographers in raleigh for the 2nd year in a row. They looked at 112 photographer in the area and picked the top 17 photographers. Thank you very much Expertise for the award! It is wonderful to be recognized. And mostly thank you to all my amazing families. You above all know what goes into a family portrait and it’s not easy getting 4-5 to 10 people to all look amazing at one time and we even know an occasional head swap is in the works with those little ones under age five but between you and me we get it done. It’s definitely a team effort so half of this award goes to you guys ESPECIALLY my Moms who we know carry most of the load! Love you guys! You know who you are! <3
What an amazing wedding. Shot in the historic downtown Charleston it couldn’t have been a more beautiful setting for these two to say I DO. I loved the brides choice of petal pink and gold to offset her handsome groom’s air force blue and gold. Every detail was stunning and you can tell they were made for each other. Even Zoe their dog joined in for the wedding ceremony.
Congrats Alexa & Zach! You guys were awesome!
So this little guy is the sweetest thing. I just love seeing what Mommy dresses him in each year. I have to say it was a little traumatic this year as being the big boy he’s growing into he fell TWICE just before his photo shoot so a touch of photoshop was needed. LOL. He’s ALL boy like his Daddy!
I feel so blessed to be a part of this families life. It’s so strange but I shot Mommy’s bridal portrait YEARS ago… not saying how many, that when they finally decided to start a family she contacted me about newborn portraits. I love Facebook for this reason. It’s so nice to reconnect with clients that I shot back before Facebook even existed. -Wait. That made me sound REALLY old and I swear I am not. At least not in my mind. LOL. Anyway, I will remember that first shoot as long as I live. It one of those sweet sad stories all in one. Gray was actually a twin and they lost little violet before she was born. So I went to the hospital on the night they were born so we could at least get some pictures of little Violet. And as sad and happy as that time was this little boy has brought so much joy. This little guy smiles ALL the time. And what a blessing to Mom and Dad.
Thanks for bringing me into your joy again this year!!!
Oh my goodness! Little K is SO adorable and big sister is doing an amazing job with this new addition to the family. It is so wonderful watching my families grow. I still remember my favorite shot at Mom and Dad’s wedding. Mom (then bride) was standing at the alter staring at her groom in this amazing church that had the best lighting I have every seen in a church as a photographer. The photo literally showed a tiny tear in her eye as she was looking at this amazing man who would later give her these two beautiful girls. I love seeing my families grow. I think it’s the best part of my job is not only being able to capture these photos and preserve their memories as well as record of their family for generations to come but also just watching them grow as a family with all the joy it brings. Thank you SO much Mom and Dad for bringing baby K and Big sister E into the studio. I loved every minute-even the messy ones! LOL!

Oh my goodness…. How this little guy has grown. I was looking back at his 3 month pictures and he has even more darling then even then. And boy does he love to walk. But most of all he loves Mommy and Daddy. We had fun running all over the park checking out the cotton and the fall leaves. Even though it hasn’t peaked yet it was still so warm and colorful. I do love fall shoots.
Thanks for sharing this cute little guy with me again!
Well this girl is quite special to me. She babysat for my girls when she graduated from college when my youngest wasn’t even 1 years old. She has been with us ever since. She’s like a surrogate Mom to my girls. So when she found this great guy we couldn’t have been more excited when they got engaged. They love the beach so we decided a beach shoot was just the right backdrop for their first portraits together before tying the knot. Ft. Fisher is such a beautiful beach scene with the classic Carolina gnarly trees and the rocky seascapes. They were so cute together. It was hard to get that serious romantic shot because they have so much fun together all they do is laugh. A good problem to have for any photographer!
The whole family is looking forward to their wedding next April. It’s going to be gorgeous. Can’t wait Stephanie & Chris!
Oh so how cute are these little guys? They were jumping and scamping all about so much so that it was some what hard to get a stationary shot! And they love people too. They were all over me. They are going to make some families very happy. If you are invested in purchasing you can contact Michelle at NCHorseandPony@aol.com
Alfred Williams and Company turns 150 years old this year. What an accomplishment. During the toast the president reminded the group that the company was even old than the phone company. I think that statement really sets the mindset of truly what a feat it is for a company to have such sustainability over the years. With their focus being the highest levels of customer satisfaction as well as a company culture that values it’s employees it’s no wonder they have made it this long. Happy Birthday Alfred Williams & Co! Well deserved!
