Recently, I met a new friend. He is about to turn 1 year old and his parents commissioned me for his birthday celebration this Sunday at the Sutherland in Wake Forest, NC. We decided it would be a great idea to take a few images beforehand and present them at the birthday party in a slideshow. This past Saturday, I met this wonderful family at the Durant Nature Park and took some shots of their awesome little son. He is so full of life and personality and has one of the best smiles I have ever seen in awhile. We had a such a great time! I love being a Raleigh family portrait and event photographer! I can’t wait for the birthday party at the Sutherland this weekend.
