Living and working in Durham has been so great for us. We bought our home here in 2012 and we’ve seen the city grow a lot since then: new restaurants and entertainment, new buildings and apartments, and new places for me to find gluten-free pizza (thank you, Durham!). So I was pretty excited when I was asked to shoot some photos of the Central Park District for Discover Durham. My client Jacques, who you all know and love!, works there and asked me to do these pictures (yay!), and together we walked 13,000 steps of Durham and talked to a lot of strangers to get these shots. Discover Durham is every Durhamite’s best friend. They’re essentially the folks who help Durham thrive via marketing, advocation, attracting visitors and spreading the word about events. If you don’t follow them on Instagram, you 100% should. Their stories are great at listing all the local Durham things you can do every weekend, usually accompanied by a hefty dose of humor. They’re one of my favorite accounts. Follow them here! PLUS they always have great photos, so I’m thrilled that they asked me to do this shoot. So many thanks to Jacques and Ashley of Discover Durham for hanging out with me at this session, and thank you to all the Durham businesses and individuals who gave their permission to be a part of this project.

day 51/365

shot an awesome wedding this weekend at duke gardens…passed out later that night only to wake up on sunday to go into the office w/ geoff all day to fix the MLB scores in time for opening day. in short, totally neglected the 365 this weekend. obviously i’m a terrible example for a daily blog. but here i am! back on track (until full-on wedding season starts and i have a few more days like this). :)

and while i know this shot isn’t from today, i have to use it…

geoff “assisting” at the hair salon. :) *note: geoff does actually assist! just…not really at the salon. ;) this salon, wavelengths in durham, is SO COOL.
