Curling Branches, Portrait Photographer Southern Pines NC

Old curling oak branches and a sunset? Well that is any photographers dream.

Add in a beautiful young lady in a soft gown and you got one epic timeless portrait session. I wish we had more of these trees around Southern Pines-they are so beautiful, majestic, and filter the light so beautifully.

Another trip to SC may be in order soon!

Cozy and Warm Intimates, Boudoir Photographer Southern Pines NC

When this gorgeous little lady mentioned her home was a converted stable I knew we’d have to incorporate it in her intimates sesh! The old brick and other features were just so cozy!

Together we selected outfits to perfectly compliment and capture the warmth and comfort of this little home.  I was so tickled when at sunset Miss S agreed to do a last minute romp to the nearby woods -I just had to get a few shots of her in the sun! We got there just in time to capture the warm rays setting into the trees -perfection.

PS: Doesn’t she look JUST like a certain English princess?!!

Winter Snow Boudoir -Tamtopia Photography Southern Pines NC

Snowy Intimates- Southern Pines NC Boudoir Photographer

With Winter Storm Leon came a shocking 3 inches of snow -highly unusual in my town of Southern Pines, NC.

As others huddled home by the fire, I jumped at the rare opportunity and immediately scheduled an outdoor intimates session in the woods.

I love fashion, so I put a lot of thought into the clothing for each of my clients -customizing it for their personality, style and location.  After confirming the weather, this gorgeous lady and I put together this gorgeous European chic, wintery ensemble.

While not typical for boudoir, the full length cape and fur accents we chose for this session were evidence that less can often be more (exactly how I style my intimates sessions)!

Long after this snow melts away, I’m thrilled to know my client and her spouse will still have these lovely images to enjoy.

Rustic Farmhouse Intimates Southern Pines NC Photographer

This beautiful outdoor intimates session was shot on beautifully warm and sunny January day at the rustic Rubicon Farm near Pinehurst, NC. The airy sunlight and the rustic charm of this 1820’s Scottish farmhouse were a unique and beautiful backdrop for these romantic portraits.
Natural beauty like this was meant for the outdoors.

Sunset at Sea- Outdoor Sensual Session- Wilmington NC Photographer

What a truly beautiful intimates session..

It was a windy Carolina day (but that only made her hair prettier.) The storm that threatened our session actually made for the most gorgeous dark clouds in the sky over the ocean.

I’ve often looked at the curly trees at this Wilmington beach and hoped to use them for a portrait session.. But what happened next was even better than I could have imagined.  Please enjoy this outdoor intimates session with the fabulous Miss B.. Hope you love it too.

Green and Gold Fashion Portraits- Fayetteville NC Photographer

When I saw a photo of this shiny gold skirt online could not WAIT to photograph it. I was thinking “edgy urban session!” Down we went to Fayetteville’s historic downtown with this in mind… buildings, graffiti, and everything else “urban”, but as you’ll see I just could NOT help myself. Seeing all the pretty green around we ended up doing a more “natural” type shoot, even in the middle of a bustling downtown. I think that green, ivory and gold look smashing together! (And yes I did incorporate a little city feel too.. but that’s just incidental.)

Rust and Metal- Forsaken Fashion Portrait-Southern Pines NC Photographer

Another chapter in my Forsaken Fashion collection.

Rust, metal of all colors, and dir.. a regular passerby might have easily dismissed this location or been slightly scared. Not I!

Seeing such a cornucopia of grungy metal goodness, oh I was in love! I couldn’t wait to do a high fashion shoot there… Two weeks later I got my chance.   (See the first installment here!)

Wine, it’ll make you feel better -Angier, NC Photographer


Beautiful eyes and a lovely vineyard.. what a fun session!  K and I got so lucky with a big set of clouds that made this mid day session possible.. I just love that rainbow flare in a sea of green (my fave color!) Our wine tasting at Gregory Vineyards  was a ton of fun and I can’t wait to return for more wine and photos -this time at sunset! It was so hard for me to narrow this session down for the blog, so I may have went a little overboard. Hope you have fast internet :)  Enjoy!
