Portrait Palooza – Renaissance Hotel, North Hills Raleigh

Some of my shots for the second Portrait Palooza event held by the Wedding Photographic Society. We had only 10 minutes to shoot with our model anywhere inside the Renaissance Raleigh North Hills Hotel.

Thanks to Ginger Mullins and Margo Williams for their talents with hair and makeup, Rachel Price of Tre Bella for providing the beautiful gowns, the WPS board for organizing the event, and of course the lovely Kasey Unroe for volunteering to model for us.

You can see all of the shots from the event here.

Joei Reed

Joei had made a new costume for her performances and she wanted to get some shots of it. You can see more images from the shoot here.

Meka La Creme

Meka La Creme is a burlesque performer from Durham, NC. She wanted some updated shots of her new costumes so we set to getting some classic pinup shots for her. She’s an absolute natural in front of the camera and a joy to work with.

Lighting Essentials Workshop

I had the pleasure of attending Don Giannatti‘s excellent Lighting Essentials Workshop in Apex, NC this weekend. I had a great time meeting some great photographers in my area, getting some great photos, and oh yeah I learned a lot too!



Julie is another model I met at the Studio 714 West Open Photo Shoot.

This was Julie’s first time modeling but she is a natural and seemed to be really enjoying herself. She has a wonderful attitude and fell straight into character very quickly. I’m looking forward to working with her again in the future.

These cousins wanted something a little grittier at the Studio 714 West Open Photo Shoot.  They just ended up having a great time and we got some fun shots.
