Hello! I’m Fran. I am a photographer in Raleigh, NC who loves to take pictures of families, children and teens. I love working with seniors for their senior class portraits, taking beautiful family photos for a holiday card, and following toddlers around to capture a smile. I have been known to act a bit silly to get people to come out of their shell.

I grew up in Wrightsville Beach, NC and I love all things having to do with water and the beach. My husband Pat and I enjoy making new memories by the water with our two children who are rivaling me in the height department. We try to visit the mountains for skiing each winter, and we have been known to spend spring breaks floating down rivers in Mexico or riding roller coasters in Florida or Virginia. In our free time, we enjoy spending time with our friends from Asbury Church, Trinity Academy, and Brookhaven neighborhood .

Some of my favorite things are: spending time with my family, tea of any kind, walking on the beach or around a lake, my two cats, live music, chocolate with peanut butter and red wine (though not all at the same time!)

I like to provide low-stress photo sessions that are relatively fuss-free. If you have something special in mind, I will do my best to accommodate your needs. Please contact me about a session or just to say hey. If you do decide to book a session, we will have fun and laugh as we spend time together capturing beautiful images of you and your family.

Photography is awesome, and you will cherish these pictures of your family for years to come.

Isn’t that what it’s all about?
