Cary Child Photographer

Photographs Brought To Life | Raleigh Photographer

You just had photographs taken of your family, your children, or your soon to be new addition to your family.  What should you do with your pictures? Where should you put them?  What size(s) would work?  Will those pictures look good together?  How should they be arranged?  I know that most clients ask these questions because I do as well.  

This is why I am SO very excited that I have started to use a new program, Swift Galleries.  I can't even begin to tell you how awesome this system is and what it will do for you and your photographs.  When you receive your normal gallery of pictures, I will now send you an extra link.  Within this extra link you will get to see some examples of some wall galleries that I have put together for you.  If you like it, great, you can purchase the canvas prints right there!  If you still aren't sure, then let's play with some of the images and layouts and see what we can find.  Still not sure and the room templates just aren't coming close enough?  Then send me a picture of the wall(s) you are considering and let's see how it will really look in YOUR home!  

It doesn't get much better than this!!  I have created a couple wall galleries from some sessions this past year.  

PLEASE don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or if you would like to see your past sessions designed just for you!  Let's decorate those walls together and let your memories fill your house.

Cary Holiday Family Photo Session

I am pretty sure I have said ti before, but I will say it again- I LOVE this Cary Park and I really really love it in the fall.  It was the perfect spot as well for this family and I love the shots we got.  We had a wonderful time and a lot of fun!  Mr Harrison was a blast as well and I loved getting to hear him roar like a lion.  Thank you so much to the H family and I look forward to more moments to come!

On Location: North Cary Park , Cary NC

Congrats!  You have booked your family photo session.  The date is set with your time and its in your calendar.  Your photographer asks if you have any location in mind- and you are blank.  This isn't uncommon and I see it more and more.  While I may be "new" to the Raleigh area I know that it is not short on some amazing spots and it is my job to help pick the perfect spot for you and your family.  I have decided to showcase various places on the blog, taking one place at a time.  I will describe the area, give a general location, and even show some pictures from each place.  I hope that this can be used as a helpful tool and reference as you book your next session!

I thought I would start with one of my new favorite places-

North Cary Park

.  We kind of stumbled onto this park one day after errands.  Our youngest fell asleep in the car so we decided to drive around.  We came up to this place and I asked my husband to pull over so I could scout it out with my daughter while he stayed in the car with my son.  There was something about it that I just loved right away.  There is a playground when you first walk up and it has a cute arched walkway right there.  There are a lot of open fielded areas, trees, and even a great bridge!  I also think that it has a good location for not only Cary residents, but those that live in Raleigh (especially North).  

Lucas recently turned 1 and we did his family session and cake smash here, it was just perfect!  For more pictures from his shoot, click


If you have any questions about this spot as a potential location for you and your next session, just ask!



Cary 1st Birthday Session | Cake Smash

Recently I had such the pleasure of getting to capture Mr Lucas' first birthday.  I had such a blast with him! He is such an expressive and loving kid- he was perfect!  Lucas did an INCREDIBLE job hanging in through the whole session.  He gave us some really awesome shots with his smash cake that were only enhanced by the cutest outfit that his mom got for him.  I am so happy to share more pictures from this session!

Thank you guys so much for the opportunity to capture such a fun and exciting milestone in your lives- I hope you love the pictures as much as I loved taking them.


Such a happy boy!!

I just LOVE his expression on this.

Looking up to Daddy

Momma's Boy

Seriously, another great expression!!

Handsome boy!

Hello?! Anybody there??

Happy First Birthday Lucas!!!
