Carnival Chic: Rhianna’s Fashion Shoot at Dowdy’s

The tiny old fun park “Dowdy’s” on the OBX has been gated up for the past few years. One day I drove by and saw all the amazing colors, textures and creepy carnival feel… Rhianna and I knew we had to sneak inside to take some fashion shots after seeing the rundown area in a new light. We worked together and planned the wardrobe, makeup and styling. I’m pretty proud of Rhianna– she can basically do it all! Since these photos were shot, Dowdy’s has since been partially demolished… good thing we got ’em when we did!

Just a reminder to any college graduates– old or new– that I’m always available to do your cap n’ gown pictures! Mia and I took some photos at Duke Gardens while the leaves were gorgeous… even though she graduated in the spring! Feel free to contact me at for more information about setting up a time.

I was so excited when Jessica Floyd contacted me to do her headshots for the Miss North Carolina USA pageant! It was easy to take pictures of her– as you can see, she’s just naturally stunning, and wanted some simple photos to show off just that. Well, the judges agreed! Jessica placed in the top 15 and ended up winning “Most Photogenic!” ¬†Congratulations Jessica!
