When you look for fine art photographers in the Raleigh and Durham area, you don't typically fine many discounts. That is until the once a year BLACK FRIDAY SALES come along!


Fine Art Portrait Family Photography ~ Raleigh, Durham, and the Triangle Area


As my return clients will tell you, I don't offer discounts often. When I do, you better grab them up quickly. Black Friday, and the entire week surrounding Thanksgiving is the time you get to find the deals. It is the time to say thank you to all of my loyal, and amazing clients who allow me to do what I love every single day!


This year I am doing things much the same as in previous years. You will be able to buy sessions for HALF PRICE ..... both custom full sessions, as well as my petite packages in the form of mini sessions. For those who don't know the difference here is a little breakdown of the two...


A custom session is one all for you. You get my undivided attention, the day is yours. We do all of the planning just for what you have your heart set on for your session. We choose the date and time that works for you, weekday, weekend, morning evening, indoors, outdoors, whatever your heart desires. You want your 6 kids and 3 pets....have at it. Grandma, grandpa and 4 aunts are in town, great..... let's do this. You think you need two hours for the session (no one wants to take photos for two hours lol) but yep, we can do that. Following your session we set up a viewing session to select you custom artwork for your walls, albums and digital collections


Now what is a mini session? A mini session is one that is offered on a specific day with a specific "theme" and multiple families booked back to back. Examples of past mini sessions are .... vintage trucks, rustic cabin, Christmas tree farm, early fall and peek color change fall mini sessions. These sessions are fast paced, one after the other, and come with 3 digital images, and an online gallery to purchase additional images.


In addition to offering the half price retainer fees I will have the increase your value credits. These sell out to the max number every year! I mean, who doesn't want free money right? In purchasing these credits you will gain 20-30% value in your purchase credits. With the higher amounts, you gain more value. When purchasing these items during the Black Friday Sale you simply pay a $200 deposit at the time of purchase, and the remainder of the purchase must be completed before your session date in order to redeem your credit. These credits can be applied towards anything....prints, digitals, wall art, albums frames etc. Do you have artwork you want from a previous session? you can even grab these credits and use them for purchasing that artwork. It's basically discounted gift certificates to use as you please.


Last, but not least, I have my proof galleries from previous sessions. If you have had a session since I moved to North Carolina, you can grab your proof gallery for just $300 from you mini session, and only $500 from a custom full session! This is a seriously amazing deal. Please don't miss out on this one!


Well, know you know what to expect, so how do you get your deals?


You can grab them for yourself right here!

Whichever Black Friday deal you go for .... or all of them .... you can't go wrong. They'r all amazing, and I know you'll love the memories you'll walk away with!





Please have fun shopping my Black Friday Sale and don't hesitate to drop me a message if you have questions. As always, I appreciate your support so very much. If you feel inclined to share, I would love so much if you pass along my sale to your friends and family who might need photos next year as well! Thanks you friends! See you soon to make more memories!

It's time to find all of those fun fall, pumpkin loving, places to visit around Raleigh, Durham and all of the Triangle area. Since moving to North Carolina a little over two years ago, I have found there are so many fun fall activities to entertain a family, and especially children.



TAKE A PEEK HERE AT MY FAVORITE FAMILY FRIENDLY PUMPKIN PATCHES IN THE RALEIGH and DURHAM, NC NEIGHBORHOODS....AND WHILE YOU'RE AT IT, CHECK OUT MY FAVORITE MINI SESSION SET UP OF THE SEASON RIGHT HERE!



As a Durham, North Carolina family photographer I have an obsession with capturing all things cute and photo worthy over the years. And as you have probably guessed by now, pumpkins definitely fall into that category. I have dozens of fun photos of family activities of my kids at various pumpkin patches over the years, and these are just some things that cannot be avoided in my house. So, after a good deal of searching, and some visits to a few local places over the years, I have two past favorites, and two new ones that I plan to test out this year.....


A favorite spot that my family has been to, and happens to be right nearby to our house, is Holder Hill Farm in Durham, NC. At our last visit this amazing pumpkin farm had a great hay ride, pumpkins that you can pick right from the vines in the fields (lots of varieties too), a little animal petting area, slides and stacks of hay bales for the kids to climb, and a corn crib. I highly recommend this stop for fall fun!


The next stop on our repeat circuit each year is the The Pumpkin Patch at Leesville Rd. This one is even a favorite for my kids. It's a simple one...right to the point. You go, you pick your pumpkins, you buy them and leave. And of course, mom gets some photos. Let's be honest here, I'm really just in this for the perfect photo op at the pumpkin patch. I know some of you other moms are feeling me on this too.... The great thing about the Leesville Rd Pumpkin Patch is, there are so many beautiful pumpkins to chose from, and they are all laid our for you to see, right together. They have wagons easily accessible, and everyone is friendly and willing to lend a hand if you need help with your selection. You definitely will leave with a happy kiddo and a trunk full of pretty pumpkins to decorate your doorstep.


As for new spots that I have come across, I stumbled across Phillips Farms of Cary. This looks to be everything I love about Pumpkins in the fall. I can hardly wait to tell you all about what I find here! The other spot that looks great for fall fun and pumpkins too is Perkins Orchard. These will both be new to me, and I'm excited to check them out this fall!


With fall being the best time of the year (ok yes I know that is an opinion....but I'm totally right), it's only natural to want to do all things fall for my specialty sessions right now. This time, I had to incorporate pumpkins when I came across this absolutely most perfect PUMPKIN colored vintage sofa! I hope that you all love it, and I can hardly wait to see. you and your family making memories with me at my very own little "pumpkin patch" gone vintage this fall.

I hope that in your search for fun activities to do in the fall in Durham, NC you might take a chance on capturing some of those memories. Remember to slow down, and press that pause button. For me anyhow, there is nothing better than looking back each year at those photos of my kids growing up right in from of my eyes. I treasure each and every little pumpkin adventure that they have let me drag them on. (I kid....they really have loved the adventures, even if they know its for the photo op).





This fall I have set up my very favorite pumpkin patch mini session, with this stunning vintage sofa, just for you! This specialty session hollers fall, changed leaves (I've got it scheduled for peek color change weekend), crisp autumn air, and beautiful glowing light. I can hardly wait to see you all there!
