A weekend with IP!

Dance studios, birthday parties, circus dogs and horseback riders filled our entire weekend! No complaints here though. We’re happy to stay busy doing what we love!

Friday night we hosted our first ever IP birthday party at the studio. Christa brought herself and eight of her closest friends to have their hair styled by Jessica and makeup done by Leah. To say these girls had fun would be an understatement, and we did too! The IP studio was filled with infectious laughter and smiling, young faces.

Everyone rocked their time in front of the camera and the ever-famous ring light! Just check out these gorgeous faces! You can check out our Facebook page for more shots from this fabulous birthday party. Happy 15th, Christa!


Saturday, we spent the day at Center Stage Dance Studio in China Grove with dancers we’ve been photographing since they were just three years old! Dancers never fail to bring sass and attitude to their portraits, and we love every bit of it!

Check out a few of these funny bloopers. We love having the opportunity to work with these talented dancers!


While Karen was at Center Stage, Erica was representing IP at the 4th annual Circus Stella held by Spay It Forward of NC. The event is filled with happy Spay It Forward supporters plus Circus Stella and their five performance pups. These amazing dogs walk the tight rope, perform aerial silk skills and balancing acts!

The afternoon of events also included face painting, balloon art and a silent auction. We were so happy to participate as the event photographer, capturing all the happenings of a fun afternoon benefiting local animals!


We switched gears on Sunday afternoon to work with equestrian riders and their horses. Horses have a special place in our hearts after so many years working with the Wings of Eagles ranch.

This time we worked with trained English riders at the beautiful Cypress Hill Farm. It’s truly amazing to see the special bond between riders and their horses. These riders truly love their horses and it showed!


After a busy weekend, we jumped right back into studio portraits Monday morning. It’s easy to say, we love what we do! A big thank you to all the amazing faces that make it in front of our lens every day!
