2024 Father's Day

June 14, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

Father [Fah-th er] noun:  protector, teacher and encourager; a person who picks you up when you fall, brushes you off and lets you try again; admired and much loved; often referred to as a son's first hero and daughter's first love. 

The nation’s first Father’s Day was celebrated on June 19, 1910, in the state of Washington. However, it was not until 1972—58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official—that the day honoring fathers became a nationwide holiday in the United States.
 

Wishing all the Dads out there a very special Father's Day!

And an extra special wish to the hardest working retired guy I know, you are the best, dad!!! And also to my brother, who learned from the very best and is an amazing dad to my niece. Golf your hearts out, I miss you!

Mother’s Day

1st proposed by poet Jila Ward Howe, suggested after the Civil War to recognize peace and protest war. She organized events in Boston to honor mothers. 

Ann Jarvis had no children, campaigned for the holiday. She worked to provide resources for poor mothers. 

Became a holiday in 1914 - Woodrow Wilson

Mother (n) - a person who loves unconditionally; the maker and keeper of precious memories; a person much loved and greatly admired.

I am so lucky to have the best mom along with wonderful mother figure role models in my life. From aunts, to sisters in law, to friends, to cousins, and many others in between....I admire you all so much. 

If you're a mom or have a special mom in your life, enjoy your Mother's Day! And especially to the best of the best, MY MOM!

Why I Love Being a Winterville, NC Photographer

April 08, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

When I moved from Massachusetts to North Carolina in 2015, I was excited about rebuilding my photography business in a new location. While it was overwhelming, took LOTS of time to build up, and sometimes a little more difficult than I expected, I am so thrilled that I stuck with it. I am happily running my business in this wonderful town.  

THE PEOPLE - Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming. Southern hospitality truly is a thing! It's been a wonderful experience meeting new people, families, and fellow business owners. One of my favorite things about being a photographer is watching families grow and being there with them for their important milestones.  

LOCATIONS - It has been a ton of fun seeking out photography locations in my new home. I continue to find new spots year after year. Some fun locations have been cotton fields, Christmas tree lots, tulip field, different farms, nurseries, and parks. Of course taking photos in your own home and yard is always special, I have had the privilege of being welcomed into many homes for sessions. 

COMMUNITY - Over the years I've taken part in many different volunteer opportunities and I'm always looking for ways to give back. One way I've done this is by donating a portion of my session and event fees to Donors Choose, supporting teachers and classrooms right here in Pitt County. As a Winterville Chamber of Commerce member, I've had the chance to meet many other wonderful business owners and attend and/or photograph many of their fun events. The town motto is "A Slice of the Good Life" and I find that to be very fitting. 

Everyday I continue to work on different ways to grow my business, meet new people, and collaborate with others.  I look forward to new opportunities that lie ahead!


2024 Heart Ball

March 13, 2024  •  Leave a Comment

I had the pleasure and honor of photographing the American Heart Association Heart Ball last week. This year was extra special because the AHA is celebrating 100 years!  I had fun watching the live auction with celebrations, the silent auction, the speakers, and the dancing! They did a wonderful job from decor, to food, to entertainment, to auction items. Everyone had a blast and they raised LOTS!!
