OMG Have you ever seen such gorgeous red hair in your life?!?!? When Kacey walked into my studio from Carolina Talent, stylist Elisha and I just KNEW we had to get crazy with that hair and makeup for her headshots! Kacey was a blast to work with and I'm obsessed with every branding image we took of her! We decided to shoot some edgy headshots and fashion portraits of her for her modeling and acting portfolio, as well as have some fun with gold flakes and dramatic lighting! Model or not, I think every woman should step out of the box once in a while and try some personal branding portraits that are fun and edgy!!
Sarah is an amazing, passionate, and gorgeous woman who is usually taking care of others- whether in her role as a mom, or as a master networker at Rockstar Connect; and it was finally her turn to be pampered, cared for, and seen for the powerhouse of a woman she is! Sarah came to me for some amazing personal branding portraits and more modern headshots in order to let he vibrant personality shine and to create an authentic connection to her vast audience.
Jenifer Fennell is not only an amazingly talented (and patient) photographer, but a supermom as well! We met through the photography world several years ago and hit it off right away! We've stayed in touch daily since my moving to Lancaster, PA and she has become my dearest friend. She is a rockstar of a maternity and newborn photographer and photographed both of my kids when they were born. I've got to tell you, photographing newborns is HARD!! Like one of the hardest things I've ever attempted to do! The amount of vision and imagination to think up creative and whimsical sets for these tiny babies plus the hours and hours of endless patience waiting for newborns to fall asleep and then posing each individual finger and toe just right! Eek! It's not for everyone but Jen makes it look easy!!
She lives and works in NC and although the is a rockstar photographer, like most of us, she shies away from being in front of the camera. I managed to convince Jen to come in for a personal branding photo shoot for both headshots and glamour style portraits and we had so much fun! We started in hair and makeup while I looked through Jen's awesome wardrobe to find the perfect outfits for our session. Jen rocked her personal branding session and was a natural in front of the camera despite her reservations and was blown away at her beautiful portraits! Check out her magical newborn and maternity portraits at Jenifer Fennell Photography !
I love when I have time in the Lancaster studio to get a little creative and have models and stylists with me that are willing to push the envelope a little bit with their headshots and personal branding! The gorgeous Avery of Carolina Talent Modeling Agency decided to join us for this conceptual shoot with the amazingly talented hair and makeup artist Elisha Seaton !
I love love love when salons contact me to update their headshots and photograph their amazing team! There is nothing better than checking out a salon's website or facebook and being able to put a face to the stylists that work there and feel an instant connection with them!
I see so many salons and businesses that post cell phone shots of their staff and that just gived me the icky feels! Looks terribly half-ass and unprofessional and definitely NOT where I want to be trusting my image with, when they can't be bothered to update their own. So when Josh, the owner of J.Co Salon and Blo'Dry Bar asked me to come in for some personal branding shots, I was so excited! The salon is beautiful and the staff was so friendly and fun to photograph! We had a great time and can't wait to see them grow both personally and professionally! Now that I'm in Lancaster, PA I'm thrilled to work with some local salons and spas up here to elevate their brands!!
Lori came to my studio for personal branding headshots and we had so much fun! Lori was (like most of my clients) hesitant about being in front of the camera! But, I promised to make updating your professional headshots not only easy, but fun. Lori trusted me and my team to guide her into poses that were flattering and comfortable while lighting her in the most perfect light! She was thrilled with her new modern headshots and is using them to represent her company in a professional and approachable manner. Personal branding sessions in Lancaster are an amazingly easy way to create an instant and authentic connection with your clients and target audience!
Meet Jessica. Wife, mother, military spouse, and the gorgeous woman behind Fayetteville Hypnosis and Kids Who Meditate. Jess is a board-certified hypnotist, stress relief coach, and an amazing mom of two! Jess wanted to break the stigma of what people think of when they hear the word "hypnotist" and show her fun, approachable, and professional side through personal branding portraits. I love working with headshot clients who KNOW that they need so much more than a headshot. They want their clients to feel like they know them and communicate with them in an authentic way. When Jess talks about being a hypnotist and coach, you just can see her light up... she is so passionate about her work and clients and I am so excited to help create portraits that match her personality!
Wow, the temperature has dropped and Fall is finally here!! I had the immense pleasure of working with one of Southern Pines' top interior designers, Alex Fairchild Oates of AO Style/Design to photograph some of her Fall entertaining ideas. Alex is an awesome military spouse and entrepreneur who's eye for design is inspiring! She does everything from home design, events and entertaining, to home staging! Check her out at http://www.aostyledesign.com/ and follow her on Facebook .
Everyone says that the eyes are the windows to the soul, so that would make the lashes like curtains or window treatments. Long, healthy lashes and beautiful glowing skin are all a girl needs! And Brooke can make that happen! Brooke's specialty is lash extensions and microblading and she is the best of the best! Check her out on
Brooke came to me for some updated headshots and personal branding portraits for her business and website and I couldn't be happier with her updated images!
This gorgeous woman is Lisa. She is nail technician, salon manager, and supermom! She came in to the studio to update her personal branding shots to represent the beautiful, independent, and confident woman that she is.
I am obsessed with anything DANCE! I binge watch So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars and live vicariously through their beauty, strength, grace, and immense talent, as I was blessed with two left feet! I had the plans to do a moving portrait series with lyrical, point, and ballet dancers and my good friend Charlotte at Carolina Talent hooked me up with some phenomenal talent once again!
When clients book me, I always invite them to bring a friend, or sister, or their mom to share their portrait session with them. Because of course, portrait sessions are so that much more fun with your best friend! So when these gorgeous sisters wanted to come in for their personal branding and beauty session together, I knew we'd have a blast!
Although I love each and every client that comes through my doors, there are often clients that I just ADORE before even meeting! Meet Kate: a bubbly, vibrant, and gorgeous opera singer. That's right, an opera singer! I was so stoked to get to meet and photograph Kate for some new headshots as soon as I spoke with her on the phone. This is a woman who knows exactly what she wants and is not afraid to tell you! As a woman who spends most of her time on stage in front of thousands of people, she knows how to work a camera and brought the most amazing wardrobe!
This gorgeous woman is a brilliant hair stylist, salon owner, and all around beautiful soul... She wanted some stunning Personal Branding Photos for her new salon Magnolia in Fayetteville, NC. She rocked her session just as she rocks her business!
Mother's Day is coming up and what better way to celebrate than to spend a special, whimsical day with your daughter or son.
When I found this exquisite gown at the goodwill I just KNEW I had to do a mother-daughter fairytale session! Finding a matching gown for a little girl was a bit tougher but after finding a fun white dress on ebay and using fabric dye to match, we had a winner! We had so much fun at Brookefield farm, spinning in the fields and playing with the ponies and super-friendly cats! Was the perfect afternoon for mom and daughter and they have some amazing images to remember it! Don't wait to book your special day!
Oh how I love weddings! I had the privilege of being able to capture a very dear friend's wedding yesterday in Surf City, NC. Upon meeting her fiance, I could see why she chose to spend the rest of her life with him. Ben is funny and caring and you can tell instantly how much he loves Lindsey. Their passion for music and the arts allows them to bond in ways other couples can not imagine. Everything in their wedding was sheer perfection! From the waterfront beach setting to their very personal and emotional vows. I can not wait to share with you all of the amazing images from their wedding!

I am often looking for worthy causes and fundraisers to donate to so when I heard about Mellow Mushroom in Fayetteville hosting a St. Baldrick's Shave-a-thon for Children's Cancer, I just had to get involved. I donated a gift certificate for a full glamour session including hair and makeup and was so surprised at the amazing people I met because of it.
Ms. E was a waitress at Mellow Mushroom and is such a kind and giving soul. She voluntarily shaved her head in order to raise money for this cause and her awesome co-workers won this gift certificate for her. When asked why she would shave her head (as I don't know many women who would do this even on a dare), she said that she lives her life trying to have a beautiful soul and jumped at the chance to raise money for an illness bigger than hair or vanity. She says "I was just going to shave half of it but as it got closer to the shaving, I thought of how all those little girls and boys don't have a choice when it comes to them losing their hair, so why should I?"
Ms. E brought her mother to the session and we had such a blast! These women are stunning inside and out and I am so blessed to be able to have met them.
