For various clients and projects over the years, I have needed to employ my trusty little Canon. I am expanding my portfolio to include professional head shots, family portraits, and maternity photos.


My dear friend at 39 weeks. We had to change up our location plans due to a torrential downpour outside. Instead of skipping over to Lake Johnson, we loaded up my little car and set out for the Fairview Garden Center, a magical place full of bright blooms and very helpful employees. We left with an afternoon of smiles and a potted Wandering Jew (a beautiful creeping green and violet plant). I was so honored to capture this lovely lady just before she welcomed her second little boy to the world!

A Day at Biltmore

On a beautiful day in the summer of 2018, my family drove to the mountains of North Carolina. In Asheville, we were able to visit the regal Biltmore Estate during a Chihuly exhibition (a renowned glass sculptor) and I got a few good shots.

Professional Head Shots

A good LinkedIn profile is helpful for potential employers and employees to get a sense of each other. Make sure your presence is polished and professional by ditching distorted selfies and talking to someone who can show you off in your best light.

Historic Oak View Park

While working at Ajinomoto, I had the opportunity to take many walks through the nearby Historic Oak View Park. The site boasts several buildings over a hundred years old, a small museum, a barn, goats, chickens, a pecan grove, and so much sunshine. The park staff often gave school tours and the nearby library would host festivals full of stories and laughter.

Easter at Fellowship Raleigh

I was delighted to take photos at Fellowship Raleigh's Easter Egg Hunt. It took Colleen and I (and several other people with mad engineering skills) two hours to erect and decorate the flower arch so the wind wouldn't blow it down with the tornado aftermath that weekend. It was the biggest turnout for the Hunt that FR had ever seen and I was so glad I got to be part of capturing some of their smiles.
