DeAnna’s Senior Session took place on her grandfather’s beautiful farm in Randolph County. DeAnna comes from a very close knit family, so she wanted a few of her photos to highlight her special relationship with her parents. She also wanted a couple of fun shots with her boyfriend, since he’s been such a big part of her senior year as well.
Her dog, Crystal, was such a photo diva, she seemed to enjoy the shoot as much as the rest of us.
The weather couldn’t have been more cooperative and it turned out to be an amazing shoot!
Frayed Edge would like to congratulate DeAnna on her upcoming graduation and wishes her the best on her future endeavors!
The temps were barely above freezing and a light snow fell intermittently during their E-session, but Alison and Cary never complained once. In fact, at one time in the middle of the session, I heard Alison say, “I’m having so much fun!” I think the images below are a good indication of the fun they were having and also show how relaxed and comfortable they are as a couple.
After spending some time shooting in a Greensboro Park we headed over to Natty Greene’s for the couple to warm up with a cup of coffee and a couple of drinks. It was a super fun session and Frayed Edge is looking forward to shooting Alison’s bridal portraits and their wedding in the fall!! So you’ll be seeing more of these two in the future!!
We’re trying something new this year and we call it, “FRAMED.” The idea is to work with clients to use photography and graphics to produce a piece of art that compliments a space the client wants to enhance. The cool thing about it is that the client will appear somewhere in the piece, kind of like Alfred Hitchcock appearing in cameo in one of his movies. The client’s presence in the piece can be as conspicuous or as inconspicuous as the client wants. The important thing is that the final piece incorporates the colors, style, story, texture and size the client wants for the space.
For example, we can create a piece that looks like an oil painting with a mood of elegant old world mystery…
Or we can go crazy and hide the client in a riot of color…
We can create a fantasy scene…
Make complimentary panels in watercolor style…
Go cool and intimate…
or pastel warm and bright…
We can go almost monochromatic…
Or create story while we focus on a complimentary color…
But all of this is just scratching the surface. We can pretty much use the media at our disposal to put the client into a work of art that enhances a space, tells a story and says something about the client. The goal is that a viewer will at first only notice a new, conversation-stimulating piece of art in our client’s living room. But closer examination will reveal that the client is actually in the picture…the client has been “FRAMED.”

If you follow our blog, you know how much I love to photograph related pairs (mom/daughters, mother/sons, sisters/brothers, etc. This shoot is no exception. Frayed Edge recently had the opportunity to photograph this mother and son as they were transitioning into a new chapter in their lives. They both share a keen sense of humor and a very close bond which made the shoot both comfortable and fun. Here are a few of my personal favs:
Frayed Edge loves mother-daughter portrait sessions. After a few moments in front of the camera, they forget we’re there and then a silent dialogue between the two of them begins. Once that happens, it’s pure magic. The images below are from one of our most recent mother-daughter sessions. You can catch a few of our previous mother-daughter sessions here and here.
Pinky’s bridal session took place just a couple of hours before Greensboro Roller Derby’s Wheels of Steel bout on Sept. 23rd. Since she plays for the Battleground Betties, she wanted her bridal portraits to not only express her love for Roller Derby but to include as many of her team and league mates as possible. We ended up shooting her portraits just a week prior to her wedding date so we could make sure her vision became a reality. Shooting just before the bout allowed her teammates to be geared up and ready to bout right after the session.
It was an amazing shoot!! Many of The Battleground Betties and The Mad Dollies suited up early just to be a part of her portraits. Thanks, Pinky for being a risk taker by taking your portraits outside the ordinary, Frayed Edge style! Your risk, yielded some pretty cool results:
Frayed Edge had the pleasure meeting Jake recently and shooting his senior portraits. He is good friends with Zach whose portraits we did a couple of months ago. Our session with Jake was fast and furious since he was squeezing his portrait session in before a basketball game. I didn’t even have time to switch cameras or lenses, but Jake says that’s how he rolls. Seriously, we shot for 15 minutes. OMGeez. BAM.
Jake plans on pursuing a degree in youth ministry once he graduates high school. We wish him the best!!
Here are a few of my favorites from his fast and furious session.
