Summer and Francesco | Durham Photographer

It’s so awesome when you get a client who can resonate with your work! Summer reached out to me to do a family photo shoot with her husband at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham. I remember chatting with her and learning that she’d like a casual photo shoot of the two of them that felt warm and intimate, but not make it feel like an engagement shoot. I also learned of their beautiful story! They met in a masters program in New York City in 2007, and became classmates and friends. They then reconnected in Chicago where Francesco was living in 2015 and Summer was visiting her brothers. Francesco went out to meet them, and well, the rest was history!

On the day of our shoot, we got a variety of shots around the Tobacco Campus. One of my favorite places was using the sidewalk that’s right outside the campus because it had a very Durham feel to it; the brick building in the background and the street gave their photo a mix of vintage and urban. I also LOVED using the brick wall and windows right outside the Power Plant! Their connection was so sweet and genuine, and they had the best smiles and laughs! There were SO many epic shots, and below are some highlights. Enjoy the photos and getting to know this wonderful couple!

American Tobacco Campus Family Session | Durham Family Photographer

I had so much fun taking urban family portraits for the Yeh family! They used to live in Durham AND lived just a few doors down from my husband when they were here!! All this to say, they've been dear friends of ours and we miss having them close by. When Jenny contacted me that they would be visiting, I was SO thrilled...when she also asked if I'd be interested to take their family portraits in Durham, I was even MORE excited and so honored!!

I remember Jenny sharing with me that she wanted to have some vivid, crisp images of their family, and simply showing them having fun together. I thought it was so touching when she mentioned that it's because their kids won't be like this forever; they grow up and change so much, and it's important to get family photos at least once a year (which I TOTALLY agree!).

The day of their session was definitely a classic, hot summer day! We originally scheduled it for a sunset session, but we had thunderstorms in Durham so we moved it to the following morning. Thankfully, the storm stopped by then, and we were greeted with cloudy skies and super humid weather. However, the Yeh's were AMAZING during the shoot despite the crazy humidity, and were so photogenic in front of the camera!! We had so much fun laughing, hugging, dancing, and eating gummy bears during the shoot!!

I'm so grateful that I have the privilege of capturing this special season of life for the Yeh family. I'm so thankful God has placed them in our lives, and can't wait to see how their beautiful family grows! Enjoy getting to know this family through their incredible family session!!
