Creative Downtown & Farm Senior Portraits

// Cailyn // Class of 2019 “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” – Audrey Hepburn This girl lives out that quote. Cailyn is the kind of girl who will link arms with her friends and speak words of encouragement to them. She is slow to speak and quick to listen and her words are soft and sweet. She also has the ability to stand up in front of an audience of 100’s (and more) and sing her heart out. Right now, she is probably finishing up her final performance of her high school play, Little Mermaid. You guessed it, she is Ariel. She shares many traits with her character. She loves deeply and is not afraid to go after her dreams. I cannot wait to see where this girl goes after swimming outside our little hometown pond. After all, “Flipping your fins, you don’t get to far. Legs are required for jumpin’, dancin’, strollin’ along down a (What’s that word again?) street…”       Cailyn, thank you so much for being on my senior style team! I’ve loved getting to know you! You are so encouraging and thoughtful. I appreciate the time that you’ve spent on everything with me this year among the busyness of life! I know you are going to thrive in the coming years! Enjoy your next...

// Whitlee // Kinston Field and Downtown Portraits

Lemme tell you a little story about this beautiful girl. I’ve known Whitlee for a long time… and yet somehow… I still thought she was a senior last year! Basically what had happened wuz… she hung out with a bunch of girls from the class of 2018. Needless to say, I was a little hurt when she didn’t apply for my team… and all of them did. I was like, “who is she working with???!!!” Then, when the applications for the class of 2019 Style Team started rolling in last March, I saw her application! I literally said out loud, “OHHHHH!” And I have gotten to hang out with this jewel since last March! One thing about her that shines through is her loyalty to her friends. I’ve loved watching her overcome the sadness of losing her besties to college last year and pouring in to the friends she still had around her. Whitlee often bridges the gap between people. She is welcoming to others, because she knows what it is like to be welcomed.  Her killer smile and her stunning blue eyes only help those around her feel loved and encouraged. She has been such a stellar member of my 2019 team and now she’s ready to join her Wolfpack! #ncstateclassof2023 If you’d like to be considered for the LCP Style Team, please head over to the Style Team page to apply!       Whit, you are amazing, girl! I cannot wait to see the impact you make at State! I’ve loved getting to know you and your sweet mama this year! Keep in...

// Abbie // Urban and Farm Portraits

There are only a few more months left until this girl gets her diploma steps into the graduated life, and I have no doubt that she is ready. She has been a member of my 2019 Style Team and I’ve seen how responsible and cool-headed she is. She does not get shaken and does what needs to be done. When I look at her senior pictures, I see a strong, determined, blue-eyed and bright-smiling lady ready for whatever comes at her. I have loved getting to know her and see her smiling face. Her session was perfect – a mix of country and city, which fits her style so well. Abbie, I have loved working with you for your senior portraits this year! I know one thing, where ever you head next, keep that light in your eyes and smile on your lips, and you’ll be golden. Love you,...

Hannah’s Senior Portraits // Class of 2019

Hannah is who she is and she’s not afraid of that. And she will be the one to tell her friend she has something in her teeth, probably in front of everyone. Hannah speaks her mind and keeps everyone around her on their toes and in stitches (that means “keeps them laughing” for all you non-southerners). Whether it’s her dry humor or blunt comments, she brings humor to otherwise awkward situations. I love it! She makes things more fun and keeps things real. There’s nothing fake about this girl. She also knows what she loves and makes it happen, like making sure to have sunflowers at her session when they are no longer in season. The pops of color and stars in her outfits perfectly symbolize her bold and sure attitude about life. I cannot wait to see what adventures await her. Hannah is a member of the 2019 Senior Style Team and I LOVE working with her. She adds a little bit of drama and flair to the dynamic of our group and team shoots. I am so thankful she is part of the team! Hannah & Denise! It has been such a pleasure getting to know you. I hope you cherish these images! Thank you so much for inviting me into your...
Senior Style Team Photo Shoots // Class of 2019

Senior Style Team Photo Shoots // Class of 2019

Introducing the Class of 2019!! Meet our Senior Style Team for this year’s senior class. Life is an adventure, so… GO EXPLORE! That’s what we are all about this year. Don’t just survive your day to day existence. Look for the adventures that surround us. For this photo shoot, we looked at the wilderness within our own town. We are fortunate to have so many amazing serene natural landscapes around us. Lots of farms, woods, fields and water. We had such a great, but windy day! We pretended to be wilderness girls… with a little style. We found lots of fire ants, some goats, poison ivy and an old boat. Oh, and some new friendships. Check back for personal introductions! Thank you, girls! You all are amazing! I can’t wait to keep working with y’all this year. Stay safe in this storm! Make-up: Ashley Holloman & Dana...

Cap and Gown Portraits // Class of 2018

Whether you’re allowed to or not, let those caps fly! (Well, at least at some point on your graduation day – get that diploma first!)  Bust out of that box that you’ve been put in. From here, things change. Shed all those high school cliche’s and stereotypes and be you – the real you. Don’t worry about what other people think. Be brave and step into the person you are called to be. Be set free. But don’t forget these times. Remember the friendships. Hold close those things your parents and teachers told you that kept you going on the straight and narrow. Keep the prize in your sights, but have fun on the journey. Enjoy the next few years! They will be some of the best of your life! Congrats to all my graduates! I love each one of you dearly!   Y’all, I can’t believe this year is over. It just keeps getting better every year. I’m sad to see this class head out to the rest of your life, but soooo excited for you! I will miss you & be praying for you. Go get...
