I don’t really want to say that anyone had a great pandemic, but Shannon and Jason came as close as it gets when they purchased their amazing downtown Raleigh condo and adopted their sweet pup Frasier. Their patio view is just incredible and they’re within walking distance to everything, but maybe the icing on the cake is that they can hear all of the Red Hat concerts and have the best seat for fireworks. BUT if they didn’t want to hang out on their own patio, they can also go up to their condo building’s patio, which is equally incredible. They enjoy everything that the city has to offer and love walking to restaurants and around the little neighborhoods downtown. And the best part is that Frasier enjoys every bit of this. Frasier is their tiny pup who is SO adorable and very smol and sweet. Frasier is obsessed with Shannon and Jason. He follows them everywhere. He gives them non-stop adoring stares. He panicked for the two seconds that they went into a room without him. He climbs on top of them and looks super pleased with himself. Frasier is living his absolute best life, and so are Shannon and Jason. I’m so happy for them and their newfound home in the city! Thank you guys for having me out to documenting your life and love.
Yesss, my first couple family photo session since I’ve come back from retirement! It was so much fun to photograph Kristen and Patrick. I’ve known Kristen for a very long time, but this was my first time meeting Patrick, and they complement each other so well. I had a great time hanging out in their home, listening to records, making dinner, and having lots of laughs together to celebrate their one year wedding anniversary. They introduced me to compostable packaging spices (yesss), new tv shows, and a variety of amazing humorous fake band names that they keep a list of in case they ever decide to break into the industry. Until then, Patrick’s a gene therapy scientist and I learned about how certain genetic eye problems can be improved, and Kristen works in politics where she’s truly passionate about making a difference locally and nationally. We discovered that we all had slightly different versions of the same shoes, and it was just fun. Thank you for having me into your home and helping to be a part of your anniversary, guys!
