After more than 15,000 images and 47 total participants, I am proud to show off some of the finished images from my graduation special! Below you will see one photo of each person who I photographed, and I want to take this moment to thank each and every one of you (and to all who contacted me) for your continued support! I know that many of you could have turned to another photographer and received your photos more quickly, or even more inexpensively. To know that you all chose me for this important time in your lives means the world to me! A huge CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU to the graduating class of 2010!

Lessons in Versatility: Ticora’s Multi-Faceted Photoshoot

When Ticora started off our shoot at Duke Gardens with some fun photos of her and her puppy, I was excited to get some fun, happy shots. The light was perfect and everything just felt sunny and effortless. But when Ticora picked out her hair, she became a whole different person with a whole different look! I love the versatility of the shots that we got, which Ticora said were for just for herself to look back on. I think she can definitely look back and remember she was one hot tamale! Check them out!

My friend Ron called me to take some photos for his future acting career, and I was excited because it was my first headshot shoot! Ron and I have worked together on more than one occasion doing photos for on-campus events, and I’m confident that he’ll use his many talents go far… all the way to Hollywood! Good luck Ron!

I met with Seun & Toyin last night and I’m excited to announce I’m now their official wedding photographer! This summer they’re having a traditional Nigerian wedding and expecting about 500 guests! I’m definitely excited to be a part of their big day. Here are some of my favorite images from their engagement shoot on campus at UNC-Chapel Hill. It was such a perfect day! Don’t they just look like a catalog couple for “love at UNC”? Gotta love them!

Even though fall has come and gone, I knew today would be a perfect day to show some never before seen pictures from my photoshoot for makeup artist Anna Miya for her web site, C-THRU MY EYES. Our model was the beautiful Kelcie, also known as FIRE!  Kelcie’s blog, Playing with Fire, is an eclectic showcase of unique fashion and music. With snow falling all around NC today, it is the perfect day to let THE FIRE warm you back up!

I was thrilled to take pictures of my old friend Chrissy’s family on UNC’s campus… Her daughter Isabel is just the cutest thing and just seeing the three of them together puts the biggest smile on my face! I’m happy for you!
