SAY CHEESE! My Shoot with the Staff of TTh Family Dentistry

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with the cheerful staff of TTh Family Dentistry in Morrisville, NC.¬† From the moment I got off of my corporate job, I packed my car and hit the road towards the Cary area! This isn’t the first time I’ve worked with Dr. Tasha Timberlake Hinton and her staff — they are a cast of amazing folks! Dr. Hinton has been working in dentistry since 2002 and a mere 1 1/2 ago, decided to branch out on her own and establish her own practice. TTh Family Dentistry is no doubt one of the coolest and modern dental offices I’ve been to in my life!….they have an IPad check in system for goodness sakes! AND a coffee/tea bar! WHAT?! Well here is a proof of Dr. Hinton’s headshot. Such a beautiful smile to go with a beautiful spirit!

If you are in the Eastern North Carolina area make sure you visit TTh Family Dentistry and check their website in the near future to see more of my work with them!

Motown Revue Photo Booth

How’s it going in photoland?! Last weekend I had very tiresome, but super fun task of photographing at the play “Motown Revue” in Wilson, NC. The reason I’m STILL trying to catch up on my sleep is because in addition to photographing the entire play (both nights of production), I was also a vendor. So to spice things up a bit and make things fun I decided to have some of the ‘additional cast members’ dress up in costume and pose with the patrons who wanted to snap a photo! I scoured up and down for the perfect backdrop and props and I found everything I needed!

Background: Motown Revue is a play conceived and written by Toshika Smith – she’s super sweet and very dedicated to what she does. She’s been running this play for the past 4 or 5 years and it just so happens this year, things lined up so I could participate. Some of you don’t know but I LOVE to sing, but since my schedule wouldn’t allow me to commit to the 2 1/2 month long practices, I was able to be part of the production through photography! (awesome right??!) The play is in 2 parts and takes you through the history of Berry Gordy’s Motown – 50s, 60, and 70s. The turn out was AMAZING BOTH NIGHTS! The audience danced, laughed, and relived their teen and childhood years. Some patrons even brought their kids so that the next generation could hear some good ole grown folks music!

Here is a glimpse of some of the fun we had at the photo booth! Enjoy!

This is WHY Photographers Never Edit EVERY SINGLE PHOTO…

I haven’t really had any problems from clients asking “can I have the photos” because I make sure I set my prices and packages to eliminate it; HOWEVER, the questions has come up before.


If you all can remember a mere month or so ago when Beyonce started the first leg of her Mrs. Carter World Tour; she banned all photographers except the ones hired by her. MANY were outraged, but this post explains why she did it. As a photographer I can attest that there is NO photographer in the universe who shoots events/concerts that shoots every frame perfectly. When your subject/client is moving and gyrating all over the place you may capture an unflattering shot; but most photographers just delete it and shoot again. Unfortunately there are some photogs who get super amped by WHO they are shooting, they forget that this is still a client and our job as photographers is to make you feel good about yourself and the memories we are creating. I’ll say no more…just¬† read:
