Casey - Miss Forsyth County - Greensboro Headshot Photographer

One of my most favorite things about being a photographer is getting to meet so many new people.  Casey contacted me a few months ago about creating some beauty headshots that she can use when she competes in the Miss North Carolina pageant later this year.  I loved helping her create images that portray who she is.

I met up with Casey and her sweet Mama at the Paul J Ciener Botanical Gardens in Kernersville.  I love this location because there are SO many options for backdrops.  The grounds are stunning and the lighting is always perfection.  It's a little piece of pure beauty right in the midst of downtown.  If you're looking for a way to spend a peaceful hour or two one evening, I highly recommend taking a stroll around the gardens.

Best of luck, Casey!  I can't wait to see what happens this Fall.

 

Distinguished Young Women - Guilford County - Greensboro Photographer

I have mad love and respect for the Distinguished Young Women program, so when the program coordinator for Guilford County contacted me about photographing this year's event I was all in.  Anything that helps build confidence and leadership skills in today's youth, I give my undying support.

The representatives were showcased at UNCG in April and Megan Talluto was awarded the title as DYW of Guilford County for 2019.  She will compete at the North Carolina state program in January 2019.  But, all of the girls did a great job and it was fun to see their confidence on stage grow throughout the event.

Being that I'm a fitness instructor, I'm quite partial to the fitness routine portion.

Prom 2018 - Greensboro Senior Photographer

At the beginning of March, I was asked to take some pictures of the youth from church before they headed off to  Prom.  I did not hesitate to say YES!  They met as a group before the dance for pictures and dinner.  I know I've said this before, but I really love spending time with teenagers.  Being that I am still squarely in the midst of life with little kids, I find being with the teens a breath of fresh air and it really makes me look forward to those years with my own children.

Teens often get a bad rep, but I'm not sure why.  If you spend time with them, you'll find that they are smart, friendly and excited about what's to come in life.  They're not yet run down by the responsibilities of adulthood but out of the silly childhood years - it's an awesome phase of life.  My hours with the youth at church each week and during my Senior sessions, I find are some of the most inspiring and joyful hours of my week.  

Take a look at how awesome and happy they all looked!  It was so fun watching them all squeal with delight and huge smiles as they gathered together.  (And because Mamas play a huge role in how these kids turn out, I always like to include Mom in my teen sessions.)
