My before & after for this week!  (Click the button above to see more or to add your photo!

Here’s my edit.  I used photoshop cs4, and found that I didn’t have to do a lot.  I fixed the color balance a bit, bumped the saturation, and was really happy.  I realized the awesomeness of this reflection in these windows at the end of the shoot and was so excited!  And I love doing maternity photos anyway.  Their little boy was born only a week later!

final family shoot in raleigh

Filed under: family — kristalucasphotography @ 8:48 pm

I really had fun staying with these friends, so as a thank you I did a quick family shoot for them.  It was quick because it was SO COLD!  We shot a few, wrapped up in coats, then repeated.  M was a trooper, not fussing at all.  I think we got a few really sweet shots, and had a lot of fun!

I first met Donata 5 1/2 years ago when I was her APES teacher.  I then was her swim coach for two summers, and we have kept in touch for all these years!  I had some ideas and locations I wanted to try out while I was in Durham, and she was a willing participant!  These are my favorites:

Ben and Linda are awesome.  Their photo shoot was fun, lighthearted, and whimsical.  They wanted to do some different things during our shoot, and I hope I captured what they were looking for!  Here are my favorites:

This family is so awesome!  We have known them for years and love them dearly.  They added a daughter to their family in July, and their son is 3 1/2 and super smart!  I had a lot of fun photographing all four of them for the first time!

family of five

Filed under: children, family — kristalucasphotography @ 6:07 pm

Meet our former neighbors!  This is a sweet sweet family who is a lot of fun!  We really had the best neighbors when we lived in Durham.  They just had a baby girl in September, and I had so much fun photographing all five of them.

ATC family shoot

Filed under: children, family — kristalucasphotography @ 10:48 pm

This family is so sweet!  We met at the American Tobacco Campus, where it was cold and windy.  We started shooting inside, and braved the cold for a few at the end.  They are moving out of the area soon, so I hope these photos are great memories of their home for years to come!
