K-town Prom Picks 2017

Prom is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting times in high school. However, with that being said, it can be difficult to plan the perfect prom. Sometimes the guys (you know the gentlemen who are supposed to plan the evening) need a nudge in the right direction. Luckily, we are here to help! Here are some of our favorite places for all your prom necessities & you don’t even have to leave town – they’re all right here in Kinston: Jewelry & Accessories: Leon Thomas & The Pink Daisy Boutique have an array of stylish accessories Flower Boutiques: The florists at the Flower Basket are pros when it comes to fresh cut flowers Restaurants: Ginger 108 is stylish and has delicious sushi and Asian Fusion dishes – The scallops are AMAZING! Hair and Makeup: The Beauty Box is full of talented stylists, including Tracy Underwood Make-up Artist Ashley Holloman is also my go-to lady for all my sessions (ask me for her contact info!) And don’t forget to make a stop at Walmart or the Pig for a snack at some point. It’s always fun to turn heads when you’re all dressed up and out of place. Who will you choose to be a part of your prom experience? (PS – This is my fave prom pic of all times of Frances, Taylor and Meredith – love...

Yesterday this beautiful girl turned 18, and in a few months, high school will be history for her. So many things to mark this as a monumental year in her life. Lots of lasts. Firsts. Good-byes. Hellos. I had the privilege of taking her senior pictures and being part of this special year in her life, and after watching her grow up for the past 8 years, I’m proud to see what a wonderful person she has become. She donned the homecoming crown this fall and has a super strong friendship with 3 other truly amazing girls (click here to see their BFF shoot!). A cord of 4 strands is not easily broken, right! Jeanette & Colleen, thank you for choosing me to commemorate this year and so many others. I’m praying for you both during this new adventure. I have no doubt it is going to be amazing! Love...

Reed // NLHS co2017

I’ve heard when he walks up to the mound, the batters quake in fear. What do you think? It may just be that fierce stare he’s got going, but I doubt it. Thankfully, he’s a natural in front of the camera and can soften up a bit. Can you say, “male model” though, seriously. Anyway, this is Reed, star pitcher for the Hawks. We had a little fun incorporating some of his sports into his Senior Shoot. We won’t discuss how many shots it took me to get these, but he nailed it every time. Amazing talent right here. Cheer him on in the comments below and better yet, head out to the field this Spring.   Amy and Reed, it was such a pleasure working with y’all this year for Reed’s senior portraits. Praying for you both as you embark on this new chapter of...

We met on a foggy morning and walked out into a field of tall grass. Jade was in full Sugar Plum Fairy garb, pointe shoes and all. We had been looking forward to this shoot for months! The light was perfect. The weather was unseasonably warm. The park had been completely flooded after Hurricane Matthew and thankfully mostly dry by the scheduled date of our shoot. But her pointe shoes were covered in silt by the end of the day. It was nothing short of magical when the sun hit the dew while it was rising in the sky. I’m a little poetic with this post, but how else can you talk about such dreamy images. The last image above was at sunrise. So dramatic! Jade, it was an amazing experience working with you and your mom! So encouraging and fun! You are a beautiful! I can’t wait to see what you do at...

The most fun we had during Elizabeth’s senior shoot was around the railroad tracks. She is a cheerleaders, so, of course, we had to do some jump shots. She got some serious air! I loved making her laugh because that’s when I saw her genuine beauty shine. She has such a sophisticated look and style and can pull of that fierce look like nobody’s business. But I just love that laugh. Love that gray top, too! For the rest of the Class of 2017 countdown, head over to the LCP Styled Styled Guide. Elizabeth, your session was so fun! Thank you for being up for just about anything! Working with you and your mom has been a dream. I can’t wait to hear your big plans for next...
