Raleigh Child Photographer
Being a Raleigh child photographer gives me so much joy. I know most people know me for my work with maternity and newborn clients but I just love children too. This was a special shoot as it was my own child. Charlie one of my three boys, the youngest. Going back years to looking at pictures and only dreaming of having images like that to keep forever. This is what really got me going into the world of photography. I wanted to document days, and also take beautiful portraits of my children. I am a self taught photographer. I have laughed, cried, wanted to run over my camera and throw my computer out of a window. The joy I get now from producing my own quality images never ceases to amaze me. When I look at those images and say “I did that” “that is my work” makes me proud.
Working with children can be tedious and make you want to pull your hair out. Especially when it is your own child/ren. On this day I took Charlie up to the river, I knew for sure I would find some great spots. When photographing children I watch them first. You have to see what catches their eye, what gets their attention. To just let a child be a child and capture that emotion of wonder is beautiful. Those expressions are priceless, the movements and curiosity of life. For me, I want my pictures to tell a story – I want people to see their own childhood in my pictures.
