(Baby) Faces: Avery

I was rummaging through the rest of my pictures from family vacation, and I ran across a whole lot I took of my new second cousin, Avery! (She is the baby in the Lange Family pictures.) I just thought they were super cute, and I loved the faces she makes! Enjoy!

I can almost hear "Ooooooo!"

Avery faces! Doesn't she look like one of those Kewpie (sp?) dolls?

Ok, well that was just for fun... everyone likes a cute baby, right?

(New) Faces: Topher

Meet Topher! This one week old little guy is the newest arrival in my circle of friends. His dad, Adam, and I go way back. I was originally supposed to shoot some maternity pics of mom, Ashley, but we just never got it worked out, and this little guy got tired of waiting! So on to plan pics! Ashley and Adam were kind enough to let me practice my newborn photography skills on their little guy on his one week birthday. It is only the second time I have shot a newborn. He is such a cute, sweet baby! He put up with a lot from Ashley and I! Poor little guy just wanted to be cuddled, and we kept moving him around and posing him! Anyway, here are a couple from the shoot. Enjoy!

Faces: Hilary and Rachel

So I FINALLY have had time to sort through all of the images from last week's senior shoot and pick some to blog! Hooray! Hilary's family and my family go way back, so I was super excited when she asked me to take her senior portraits! I mean, I remember Hilary being just a little girl, and now she is a freakin' senior in high school! Crazy! Anyway, I told her to bring along a friend if she wanted, and I would do their shoots together...enter Rachel! I had a really great time with these girls and their moms. They are both so beautiful and really sweet. We traipsed all around the Museum of Art and over to one of my favorite spots and ended the day at a really neat park in Wake Forest. These girls were troopers! I think we ended up spending about 4 hours together! It was a photo-marathon! Here are a bunch of my favorites...enjoy!

The girls together

Thanks for letting me shoot you, girls! I hope you like them!

Tease: Rachel and Hilary

Here is just one little teaser from my senior shoot last Thursday! I was hoping to have them all up by now, but there are so many to choose from! I will be working hard to get a proper blog up this week! Enjoy!

I don't know if you know this about me, but I really enjoy music! I've had lots of friends over the years who have played in various bands and whatnot and I always loved going to see them play. It's sad that I don't get to do it as much as I used to, guess I am gettin' old! But, last night I was able to travel to the fair city of Greensboro, North Carolina to see some of my friends play some music, and have a good time! I came armed with my camera to take some pictures during their set. I always get nervous at first when I take pics at shows because I don't like being conspicuous, and be walking around right in front of the stage (as if anyone is watching me, haha). But once I get going it is so much fun! I had never seen these guys play together as Pacifico, and I was impressed. It's good! Do yourself a big favor and check out their music here. The show was at Greene Street Club in downtown Greensboro. It's a cool place to catch a show. Also, this is perhaps my first time being compensated with dinner at Cookout. Not a bad trade, seeing as I was able to enjoy one of their delicious watermelon milkshakes for free! haha. Anyway, here are some pictures from their set. I love the fun colors! Enjoy!

If you are in a band, or know of a band who needs live and/or promotional photography, send me an email! I love doing this stuff!
