Raleigh Family Photographer

The Creative & Traditional

     The importance of family portraits cannot be overstated, they allow us to freeze time and capture families at a single moment. First of all, as a father, I know the saying “they grow up so fast” is right. We forget about the importance of taking family portraits. There can be so many excuses and reasons that get in the way: sports practice, work, exercise, shopping, etc. Being a father, I like to capture the sweet and the sad. As your photographer, I can do the same for you. I enjoy shooting the traditional/nontraditional portrait or doing lifestyle sessions for families. Almost as much as having a great portrait, having candid pictures of the family at different stages in life is a great way to keep those valuable memories and make them last a lifetime. As a Raleigh family photographer, my shoot locations range from your home, studio, or gardens.

     We aren’t creative or we are just simple people, are comments I get a lot. Simplicity makes portraits so easy and so much more relaxed. We don’t have to be posing in front of a classic car or in an elaborate garden. You can be sitting on a couch or just in your front yard. Being comfortable and relaxed are the elements that will make your family portraits truly special. 

     Check out my Raleigh family photography portfolio and let me know if you like what you see. I am always open to your ideas and suggestions when it comes to shooting your family.
