The Thorstensen Family | Durham Family Photographer

I absolutely LOVED taking family photos for the Thorstensen’s a couple of weeks ago at the American Tobacco Campus! I loved how Ethan was so cheerful and excited throughout the whole shoot, and I couldn’t get over how much he loved to laugh and smile! :) In addition, we captured photos of him and his dog, Max, and it was SO adorable. Max is 12 years old and was so gentle and sweet, and posed like a champ in front of the camera!

One of my favorite parts of the shoot was taking photos of Ethan playing with bubbles! It was so endearing to see the joy on his face—check it out for yourself below! We were also able to capture some father-and-son and mother-and-son portraits, and there were a lot of hugs and kisses :) I also made sure to incorporate a couple portraits of Andrew and Heather; I learned that they haven’t had portraits together since their engagement 10 years ago! All this to say, we packed in a lot of meaningful shots in this family session and these are memories that will certainly be cherished for years to come!

Jenn and John | Durham Family Photographer

I truly had the sweetest time taking photos for Jenn and John at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham! I learned that Jenn found me through Instagram (I’m always amazed at how technology and social media can bring people together nowadays!) and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the both of them! They both have such a gentle and kind demeanor, and the most beautiful connection with each other! They’ve been married for about two years (just like my husband and me!) and are originally from Texas.

One of my favorite parts of our portrait session was shooting with the American Tobacco sign (see last photo)! It is iconic and a great way of telling a family story. A lot of my clients moved here and/or may be planning to move again, and I wanted to make sure we capture this moment in time. In addition, I LOVED using the brick buildings in the background as it is also a very symbolic attribute of the Raleigh-Durham area! Enjoy scrolling through the photos and getting to know this couple!

Head Shots for Gabriel | Durham Portrait Photographer at American Tobacco Campus

Do you know a friend, neighbor, or even family member who is in the military? It so happened that one of my friends from college, Gabriel, was here last week for training and wanted to get some portraits done before deployment. It was truly an honor to take his photos, and I am so grateful for the freedom we have. Even though we celebrate a few holidays each year to thank our servicemen and women, take a moment to say thank you to someone you know who is serving our country today!

Back to the session, we had a great time taking portraits around the American Tobacco Campus in Durham, NC. Despite the crowds (there was a wedding session, family session, and an engagement session happening!), we were able to snag a couple of good spots. The light was perfect as we took portrait photos during the "golden hour" - the time right before the sun is about to set. The soft light and warm hues really made this portrait session a success, giving the images a vibrant and timeless look.

If you're interested to get lifestyle or portrait photography done in the Raleigh or Durham area, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me here. I'd be honored to capture your photos, and I look forward to connecting with you soon!
