I absolutely love being a Winston Salem family photographer. I get to re-visit some of my favorite families once or twice a year, check-in with each one of them and help to document the beautiful, crazy, sometimes chaotic stages of their lives. Some of my clients have been coming to see me annually for up to nine years! Jack and Emma are especially special to me. They were both students of mine when I was a pre-school Montessori teacher, when Emma was just three and Jack wasn’t yet old enough to go to school. It was during that time that I began my photography business, and not long after, I became their family photographer.
This year we met at a Historic park in Winston Salem for their photos. I like to start my outdoor sessions about two hours before sunset in order to capture that beautiful evening glow. I love how moody the fading sun and the turning leaves makes these images feel. I also love how hard these two try not to smile. And when they do… its such a beautiful thing!
