Terra Vita Food and Drink Festival | The Parlour at Manns Chapel. Chapel Hill, North Carolina

This was such a neat experience to photograph!!! Not only did I get to photograph a fantastic event at home. Yes, I call The Parlour at Manns Chapel home, not just because I have my office here but because the wonderful ladies, Aimee and Yvette, are like a second family for me. I always feel so loved and welcome and sometimes it really makes me tear up how happy I am here.

Anyways, back to Terra Vita. Chef Vivian Howard of the PBS show, A Chef's Life came along with Farmer Warren Brothers, of A Chef and the Farmer for her booksigning. She just published a new book called Deep Run Roots. There were so many great chefs that came out from Brian Kaderavak from The Chef and the Farmer in Kinston, Frank Lee from Slightly North of Broad in Charleston, John May from The Piedmont in Durham, Bill Smith from Crooks Corner, and Cynthia Wong from Butcher & Bee in Charleston. All of the food was absolutely incredible.

Aimee Flynn and Yvette Navarro did all the design, the pretty florals, signage, and everything minus the food. They are also launching a brand design company that you can also fine at

Holiday Mini Sessions 2016!!!! | The Parlour at Manns Chapel. Chapel Hill, North Carolina

Hi everyone! It's starting to get a little chilly outside (as in, not hot). Some of the leaves are starting to turn. It's time to start thinking about winter, so I'd like to announce The First Annual Holiday Mini Sessions! And they are coming up soon! It's going to be at The Parlour at Manns Chapel on October 16th. It's going to be divine. There will be four different settings to choose from with some simple, classic props all over the grounds at The Parlour. I am so excited!

The sessions will come with twenty minutes with me. This will be perfect for all those couples and families who just don't need a whole session but need a good annual photo, Holiday Card photos or gifts. It will come with ten high res images, with a print release, online proofing for nine months and one 11x14 archival quality print. I'll even have Holiday Card Samples out to make it even easier for you this season (Holiday Cards will be sold à la carte). Sessions are $220. If you want to book a session, check out this link. Sign up quick though, it's all first come first serve.
