A New Holiday Portrait Trend- Christmas Portraits with Monet, Emerson, and Remington- Boxcar Bar + Arcade Raleigh NC

Why have a boring old Christmas Card when you can have an epic one?! I met up with Monet, Emerson and Remington for their Holiday Portrait session at Boxcar Arcade + Bar in Raleigh NC and it was freggin’ amazing! You may remember Monet and Emerson from their Holiday Portraits from last year and this year we decided to do something a little different and man did it come out awesome! We decided to take advantage of Raleigh’s need to be incredibly pet friendly (uh, hello, there is an entire generation not having kids, so of course Raleigh has to be pet friendly!) and bring Monet + Emerson’s newest edition, the most adorable yet largest puppy to ever exist, a Great Dane named Remington! He came along for the ride and made all the new friends at Boxcar. We had such a wonderful time playing skee-ball and drinking all the beer.

The Stanton Family Holiday Portraits on UNC Chapel Hill- University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill NC

You may remember Tina, Trey, Leo, and Athena from the dozens of portrait sessions we have done together. The Stantons are seriously ride or die when it comes to my photography and I am about that life! We started this journey with Leo's announcement on the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's (#LETSGODUKE) campus and we decided to go back there for their completed family portraits, a couple of years later. I didn't burn up as soon as I walked onto the campus, so all was well there. We gathered up some epic leaves as student ran from their building to prepare for finals and captured some pretty awesome shots. So much has changed with this family and it has been amazing to go along for the ride. I am so thankful for these four!

A Romantic Winter: Monet + Emerson's Holiday Portraits- Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm- Raleigh NC

Monet and Emerson are new clients of mine and man oh man are they a blast! We met at the world famous Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm in Raleigh NC for a morning holiday portrait session! These two are getting married in a few weeks and their love is evident. The flirtation was unreal. Just watching these two, it was clear they have a magnetism for each other. Monet travels a bit for work and Emerson is in the military, so they miss time together often, but they are proof that absence makes the heart grow fonder! And can we please talk about how these two are clearly ready for the Patagonia catalog! Get ready to swoon over Monet and Emerson's holiday portraits!

Nate's Day Out: Adrianna + Nate Holiday Portraits - Downtown Raleigh- Raleigh NC

Adrianna is my best friend of  13 years and Nate is her best companion. Adrianna saved Nate's life after a negligent human left him for dead on the side of the road. When I first met Nate, he was a tiny pup, I remember him being almost as small as a rat terrier when I first met him and him being deathly afraid of just about everyone. He also had serious skin issues. Adrianna spent years trying to figure out what he was allergic to and well, spoiler alert: EVERYTHING. Nate was on all kinds of meds and because of that, never really had a huge appetite and he slept a ton. Now here he is, 7 years later! Thanks to a miracle medicine, Nate is the handsome pup we always new he could be, he is putting on weight, and is just so incredibly happy. These two, I believe, saved each other and their bond can never be replaced.
