“Bee-utiful Food Photography!”
I love photography, I’m very lucky to love what I do for a living. And, if you know me personally or follow my personal life on social media, you know I also love food! I love everything about it: cooking, eating out, trying new things…and I especially like food photography. There’s something very satisfying to me to make food that tastes good look delicious, too. And when my passions collide, like they did on this Asheville Bee Charmer Cookbook project – it’s a win-win!
So, how did I get so lucky?! I met Chef Carrie Schloss while doing food photography on another cookbook (The Essential Dehydrator) with Chef Jill Houk (who I also worked with on these delectables!). Read More…
“A Celebration of Motherhood”
There are so many mom-centric moments in our lives – I’m very lucky to be part of so many of the happy ones, including my own!
Other than a few selfies, I don’t have photos that I’ve taken with me and my Mom together. But, this series of me and each of my brothers with my Mom, taken for her 70th birthday celebration by good friend Nick Wrzesinski, is really special to me. I’m so glad that I hired fellow photographer friends to capture the family – it made things so much more enjoyable and I got to be in the photographs, too! When was the last time you, as an adult, had professional photographs taken with your parents, kids, grandchildren, family? Do it now! You won’t regret it!
“The Queen City Meets the Big Easy”
When I was in Charlotte for Caitlin + Matt’s engagement session, it was mid-July, sunny and VERY hot. Three months later, it was a whole different experience…unseasonably cold and rainy outside. But inside the Charlotte Country Club, it was warm and cozy as they prepared to become man and wife.
Every person I encountered had a huge grin plastered on their face, everyone was so happy and excited…it was contagious! And, the rain didn’t bother anyone, least of all the bride and groom.
It was also a unique day for me, as I had the honor of photographing Caitlin’s sister Whitney’s engagement and wedding a few years ago. Everyone treated me like I was family, and our shared experience made for an even more relaxed, fun day.
Here’s to #happilyeverhelgeson – congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Helgeson! (and, if you want to see even more of their wedding photos, check them out here)
“Love in Queen City”
I was in Charlotte visiting family for Easter when I received an email from Cailtin, asking if I remembered her from her sister Whitney’s wedding, which I had photographed a few years ago. She was recently engaged and wanted to know if I’d be willing to come back for her own wedding and Charlotte engagement session. Of course I did! And, of course I would! I was so honored and couldn’t wait to work with this sweet family again.
“It’s All in the Family”
Just a few favorites…more fun with families, kids and maternity.
Giggles are the best!
Lovely, sophisticated…a beautiful way to show off your bump in your favorite outdoor setting.
