The Rockin’ Roller Salon & Boutique

Hey y’all! I know I’ve been really neglecting this blog but guess what! Now I am on Thanksgiving vacation so time to update this sucker. As a lot of you know, I’ve been spending a ton of time in North Carolina filming my silly little part in Season 9 of One Tree Hill. My off days of filming meant on days of photoshoots! Yaaahh!
One of those days, I had the pleasure of shooting the staff photos for The Rockin Roller Salon & Boutique in Wilmington, North Carolina.  These hair artists are by far the most badass group of people with the coolest vibe I’ve ever been around. If you are looking for some tough punks with tattoos and hair dye, check out the Rockin Roller off of Kerr Ave.

Sam’s Senior Portraits

Hey hey hey!
Meet Sam.

Last week, Sam and her mom and sister drove out to Wilmington from Charlotte to meet me for some beachy Roxy-esque senior portraits. I figured there was NO WAY our schedules would match because I only had one free day in Wilmington.. Fortunately, the odds were in our favor, and everything lined up perfectly. I love the Roxy surf style, and I of course love spending time at Wrightsville Beach, so I was stoked to have this all work out, and to get to meet Sam and her awesome family.

Everyone keeps asking me how I got to shoot Emma Watson! Isn’t she so cute?

I love these! The wind was SOOOO out of control! I seriously had to plant myself in the sand so I didn’t blow over! I am little!!! Luckily, my camera weighs me down. ;D

Love this color palette!

Gotta rock the deer shirt for mom!

Quick family shot!

Aww! What an awesome day! I am so happy it all worked out!!! All the best to you, Sam, and good luck in college!!! It’s the best time of your life.. live it up! Unless you decide to be a photographer, because then the good times never stop. 😉
Cheers!

Miss Abby Bolin

Hey y’all! As you may know, I’ve spent the last week in Wilmington, NC to film my little role on One Tree Hill. So many great things have happened this week, one of which includes meeting the fabulously beautiful Abby Bolin. We hung out all day on set on Tuesday and decided that we needed to shoot some fun costume shots supplied by Halloween & More. So we narrowed it down to a hot pirate outfit and a fun little doll outfit!

Here is Ms. Abby Bolin as Darling Dollie!

I just adore these photos so much!! Oh my gosh. The location was just so perfect and has been screaming for me to shoot there for years. Just never had the perfect opportunity…. I think this theme was just about perfect for it. 🙂

Now, I give you Abby as a super sexy pirate!

Toooooo much fun!!!

Thank you sooo much to Abby Bolin and to Halloween & More. What a wonderful day! I hope next time I am in NC that I get to shoot with her again! Eeep!

Katy + Andrew’s Vintage Engagement

Meet Katy + Andrew.
Perfect couple, huh?

We had a killer vintage outdoors engagement session the other weekend when I was in Wilmington for Dede + Josh’s wedding. A weekend full of loooove. 😉 Seriously, could they be any more perfect?


We began in Wilmington, NC where we started by doing the downtown photo circle and then went to play in the sunflower fields. I love how these sunflower photos turned out.. Just like I imagined when we were planning this shoot!
Then we headed out to Ft. Fisher, NC! This beautiful location cannot be matched by anywhere in Eastern NC, in my opinion.


Katy + Andrew played off of each other so well. I love when couples interact naturally! They had so much fun and it just shines in their photos.. Look how cute!!!


Hehehe… arm wrestling.. Katy almost had him beat!


They were having too much fun! Whoa!
Tug-of-war on the spine. He’s a chiropractor. Just for some backstory on that one haha.. Definitely the most interesting item I have ever had a couple bring to their session!!! How creative!

Then we headed over to the beach to knock out a vintage beach date. Love these, too! I just love this whole session basically. Wrapped up the day with a sweet silhouette….


I enjoyed working with Katy + Andrew so much.. I hope to work with them again soon and of course, I wish them the best of luck!!
