Harrisburg-nc-senior-portraits | hickory ridge high school | Ashley by Staci Noel

Ashley came in for her first meeting with her whole family and I knew that right away that this was going to be an amazing time to create her senior session. We worked together over a few weeks to get locations lined up and wardrobe decided on. I love when seniors are so invested in making their session personal and completely unique to their story. Ashley was all about it and we had a plan to not only capture gorgeous senior portraits that celebrated her love of the outdoors but also her passion for scuba diving. I know we got exactly what she was hoping for and when parents tear up at the results than I’ve done my job precisely as I had planned and hoped for! Ashley - thank you for trusting me with your senior portraits and I can’t wait to see what amazing adventures lie ahead for you!

harrisburg-nc-photographer | Back to Business with Portrait Sessions! by Staci Noel

Hey guys,

So it’s been forever since I’ve posted a blog. Frankly, it’s been a really bumpy last year and while I have continued to shoot and create I have really let certain aspects of my business slide as we’ve had some personal/family issues that have had to take precedence over everything else. Losing a family member suddenly means not only dealing with the emotional toll but it creates a whole other level of chaos in just the day to day functioning of life and I’ve had to step up and step into things that have required more of my attention and time. I’ve taken the bare minimum of work that I knew I could handle successfully while still being able to be there for my family during this past year and I really appreciate everyone that I have worked with during this difficult time. Grief is not a destination, it’s a journey where the scenery just changes as you go along. Having friends and clients that are so understanding has made the journey a little less difficult:)

But… now we are healing a bit and moving forward so I’m back in the studio regular hours and back to scheduling more sessions regularly. I’m very excited about sessions that I have coming up and to seeing where life goes the rest of 2019. I can’t wait to see my regular families and new babies and a new class of seniors for 2020!

Love you all so much,

Staci

It's no joke to say that I had probably 4x as many images as I could possibly share from McKenna's session! No need to add a lot of fluffy words either; these portraits speak for themselves! I had so much fun capturing this time for this truly wonderful girl and I know that her whole family will treasure the amazing artwork we created! I can't wait to work with her again in the spring for something truly spectacular; I'll keep it a surprise but I'm so excited!!!
