Marie | Cr. Photog., CPP.
Marie is a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) as well as the Professional Photographers of North Carolina (PPNC). She is passionate about continuous improvement. She loves attending every photography convention and workshops that she possibly can. Bringing her clients the most innovative and up-to-date techniques/options is one of her top priorities, so she is constantly looking for ways to improve herself and learn.
Newborns are truly one of Marie's favorite subjects to photograph and her passion for capturing the newness of life shows in the way that she comforts, soothes, and carefully poses them. After their sessions, many of our clients leave the studio convinced she is the "baby whisperer". Newborns stay new for such a short time. Marie loves to capture all of the special details of your fresh little one before they quickly begin to change.
Sean | Cr. Photog, CPP.
Associate Wedding and Portrait Photographer
Sean first fell in love with the art of photography through watching movies as a child. That's when he realized the power of visual storytelling. This eventually led Sean to study photojournalism and develop skills for telling stories of people and their relationships.
Some of the stories he tells through photography are of a father smiling amidst tears while dancing with his daughter at her wedding, a little boy laughing wildly while his mother holds him high over her head, and a high school senior proudly clenching a trophy in anticipation of the future.
Additionally, Sean earned his Craftsman Photographer (Cr.Photog) designation from the Professional Photographers of America. Craftsman photographer is awarded to those who serve as an orator, author and mentor to other industry professionals. He is an active competitor in both the state and International Print Competitions earning numerous accolades at the state level with a silver medal in 2019 at IPC.
