Greensboro Senior Photographer ~ Page High School ~ Meet Malin

I met Malin in a round-a-bout way.  Her mom regularly attends a fitness class I teach at a local fitness center here in Greensboro.  Being that we had recently moved here when I first started teaching, I was talking to her mom about how I didn't know any babysitters.  Voila!  She offered up her daughter, who loves kids, and the rest is history.  I can be somewhat shy and reserved, but not when it comes to getting someone to help me with my munchkins.

Malin, my girls (I don't typically bring them to sessions, but they adore this girl) and I met up at the Paul J Ciener Botanical Garden in Kernersville.  It was perfectly cloudy, breezy, and warm - basically a great evening for a photo shoot.  The location was gorgeous and had a good mix of the natural/plant vibe and lots of brick and stone to satisfy my love of a 'downtown' vibe.  I will definitely be going back for other sessions.

While most High School Seniors take the summer off to spend some quality time with friends and family before they head off to college, Malin is cutting that short.  She is heading out on a huge, scary and (what is sure to be) an amazing adventure pretty much as soon as she tosses her cap.  It's going to be so much fun watching where life takes her.  

Best of luck, Malin!  

Greensboro Senior Photographer ~ Northwest Guilford HS ~ Meet Grace

Hey hey!  Time to finally get this new blog kicked off.  It's taken me a little bit of time to call Greensboro 'home', but I truly feel like this is my place.  The place where I think my family will finally settle down and get comfortable.  Which, for me, means that I finally feel like I can pick my photography business back up and make a name for myself.  (For those of you who I haven't known long, I had a pretty great photography business going when my family lived in Michigan a few years ago.  Had to put it on the back burner for a few years because, well, family first and we moved twice.)

With that being said, a few weeks ago, I was able to meet up with a super sweet girl to start refreshing my high school student portfolio.  February has had amazing weather in North Carolina this year.  We ended up with a perfect afternoon and found a location in Colfax with amazing lighting. Grace is one of my model representatives at Northwest High School in Greensboro.  Her family recently moved to the area and we got to be neighbors for a few shorts months.  She is already finding her place and plays both Varsity Volleyball and recently made the Girls Softball team - Go Vikings.  On top of being a great athlete, Grace is also really funny, friendly, beautiful and all around just plain fun to hang out with.  And my kids say she bakes a mean chocolate chip cookie.  What can I say?  Working with teenagers, I need to capitalize on the babysitting perks, too.
