A Special Family Reunion | Lake Gaston Family Photographer

I had the honor of capturing family photos for Bruce and Peggy this summer…and it was EXTRA special because it was Bruce and Peggy’s 50th wedding anniversary!! Their goal for this shoot was to get at least one photo of their WHOLE family. This includes their 3 kids with their spouses, and 8 grandkids. Talk about a beautiful legacy! :)

We did the portrait session on the dock at their beautiful home at Lake Gaston. The lake view was GORGEOUS and created a meaningful backdrop to their photos! I learned they picked this home so that it would be a fun place for their grandchildren when they visited, which I thought was so sweet! We started the shoot by capturing a photo of the whole family, then proceeded with photos of the grandkids and photos of each family with Bruce and Peggy. We also documented a portrait of just Bruce and Peggy together, and the joy on their faces were priceless!

I truly enjoyed meeting the whole family, and was so encouraged to see the legacy of their marriage and love! Enjoy scrolling through the photos, and happy anniversary to Bruce and Peggy! May you enjoy many more years together! :)

Best Wishes to the Pelissero Family | Durham Family Photographer

I will miss the Pelissero family SO much as they move back to Seattle! I’ve worked with them for the past three years and it has been so sweet to see their family grow, and they truly are one of the warmest and kindest families I know. Jennifer contacted me back in May and shared that she and her husband both got a wonderful job opportunity in Seattle…and will be moving at the end of JUNE! They wanted to take some family photos at the American Tobacco Campus to help them remember their time living in Durham and reflect the unique character of the city. Most importantly, they wanted to capture their family in this moment in time, and I was more than honored to do so!

I remember the day of our photo shoot, the forecast was predicting 90% chance rain/thunderstorms, but that didn’t stop us! We were blessed with about 55 minutes of cloudy weather and it only rained lightly for the last five minutes. We started the shoot by taking photos by the famous American Tobacco sign, then proceeded to take individual portraits of each child. Jennifer’s favorite qualities of her children are their eyes and smiles, and I definitely agree! The kids were so fun and natural in front of the camera and truly have the sweetest smiles! :) There were SO many other fun, organic, and playful moments, you’ll just have to scroll down to see!

I am so excited to see what life has in store for the Pelissero family in Seattle. I will dearly miss them, but hope our paths cross again in the future! God bless and best wishes to you, Craig and Jennifer!!

Family Photos at American Tobacco Campus | Durham Family Photographer

I had such a wonderful time capturing photos for the Woodbeck family! If I could describe this family in a few words, they were super cheerful, silly, and energetic; getting them to smile and laugh was no problem! :) We took photos at the iconic American Tobacco Campus in Durham, and it was the perfect place to capture some modern, urban photos of this family.

One memorable aspect of this shoot was when we would be getting ready to take a photo, Stephanie (the mom), would subconsciously point her toes! It was so funny, but it makes sense because she is a local dance teacher in Hillsborough! Her two daughters are also dancers, and it was so cute having them show me their different dance moves during the session! The kids also LOVED tickling each other, and I remember the older daughter kept asking if they could tickle each other again during the session. My favorite moment was when they were tickling their dad; I asked them to give him a kiss on the cheek and they showered him with a ton of kisses! Capturing that sweet moment was priceless.

When it was time to wrap up the shoot, I saw a beautiful brick wall. I was immediately inspired by the reddish-orange color because I felt like the bright color was a great way to symbolize the passion and spirit of the Woodbeck family! I showed them where to stand and then asked them to strike a pose in front of it, and they TOTALLY nailed it!!! See more photos of this fun family photo session below, and enjoy getting to know the awesome Woodbeck family!
