Michelle is yet another strong businesswoman in the Triangle area who I’ve had the privilege of getting to know during her branding photos, and I’m a more educated person for it! Michelle has had quite the interesting life already, having lived in New York City, Singapore, and Hong Kong. She’s traveled quite extensively with her husband and her son, and now they chose Durham as their new home so their son can be closer to his grandparents. And we are so lucky to have her here!
Michelle’s a content marketer for a tech company that focuses on eCommerce logistics, and she writes a lot of blog posts and publications online (which you can read on her website!). She’s also a devoted mother to Xavier and a big fan of moose. Yep, moose. She once went on a moose safari in Maine but saw no moose (I found this to be very sad because I just picture everyone on this moose safari to be SO EXCITED to find a moose and alas, not a single moose). In addition to being crazy good at her job and in her profession, she’s also gorgeous AND it was just her birthday. So join me in wishing this talented lady a happy belated birthday, and I’m so glad I could do these branding photos for her!
Lindsay is one of my favorite people ever and is probably now one of our most photographed clients as we induct her into the CSP 4 Timers Club! See time one, time two, and time three here. :) Now that I’ve photographed her and Ken a whole bunch, we’re excited to see them welcome a small but presumably really, really, really good looking child into this world. To celebrate this, we had her stand around and contemplate parenthood in the great wilderness of Durham, NC. Don’t let her serene looks fool you as she is truly one of the funniest people we’ve ever met and we love her. Oh, and every once in a while you’ll see Ken in this shoot because he’s an important part of this whole thing, but not quite so important as to be included in the photos while she was in the purple dress (because he wouldn’t match). We love you too, Ken.
We spent a lazy Sunday morning at the home of incredibly talented illustration artist Anna, her awesome husband John, their little adorable almost-two-year-old daughter Lou, and happy pup Keva. We knew we’d like them based on Anna’s artwork, but we liked them even more when we saw their house, and even more when we saw their giant red stuffed squid pillow, and even more still when we saw three little dolls all made to look like the three of them even complete with John’s tattoos (a family friend made them). They have a striped tent! They have a little plastic toy Fisher-Price camera! John made Lou a puddle from a hose for her to jump in but she kinda just wanted to throw boats in it! Lou has learned family responsibilities like feeding the dog but just kinda gets dog food all over herself but it’s really cute! Anna can draw bunnies from chalk faster than anyone we’ve ever seen! Go, go admire their cuteness.
