Christopher & Tierney | A Classic Downtown Cary Portrait Session

Happy Monday friends! I'm so excited to be sharing Christopher and Tierney's portrait session with you today! I met these two back in April for lunch and I knew immediately that we clicked. We chatted about our growing businesses and how nice it was to be able to connect with people who share your passion. Time has flown by since that lunch date and our planned session came just in time for the hottest day we've had in North Carolina this year!

No. But it’s certainly a design that I can keep for a long time and maybe make a few small changes here and there if need be. But I’m loving it right now and I’m so proud of myself!
