Every spring in North Carolina, photographers and their clients receive a gift from Mother Nature.  This gift lasts for about two weeks and includes flowering trees, cool afternoons and no mosquitos.  Just the perfect conditions for an engagement session out in nature.  

Thanks Mother Nature!

I should also thank the stars of this particular show, Trevor and Alina.  They arrived to the session ready for action and we had a good time creating some beautiful memories that afternoon.  The images above were chosen by Alina as some of her favorites. 

How will history remember you? Okay, that's heavy, and we just met, so I'll take the pressure off and begin again by introducing myself. My mission is to help you answer that first question. I want to show you and your world in a way you haven't seen before and at some point hopefully incite a small riot inside your head. An unapologetic Gen-X warrior for self-expression, I help people tell their stories. Not just the pretty and polished, "made for Linkedin" version, but the real essence of their legacy. At my core, I'm a visual artist. The still photographic image has been my story telling medium for decades. Now I use words, images and on the rare occasion images in motion to push others to be more, do more and express more than they originally thought was reasonable. Are you still reading this? Really? I'm impressed. Moving on... I am Southern, though not fried. In my view, Bar-b-que should be enjoyed with any sauce on hand at the time. There is no need to quibble over which style of sauce best compliments. The real question is, "slaw or hushpuppies?" The correct answer is, "yes!".
