Over the course of the year, I donate my services to a few worthy causes in and around the area. As I shoot quite a few family portraits in Raleigh, I figured it would be the perfect item to auction away. The winners of the Auction, the Christopher family, received a family portrait session and a 16×20 canvas print. I want to go ahead and thank them for bidding and ultimately winning the my auction prize.
The auction was held by the Kirk of Kildaire church and the proceeds benefited the children of Guatamala. This is the 2nd year I have donated family portraits in Raleigh and I have gotten such great feedback that I plan to continue donating my services as often as I can.
For the portrait session, I met the family at the MacGregor Downs country club. This is a beautiful club located in Cary, NC and just happens to be the same location my wife and I held our wedding reception. Instead of doing a full family portrait, my client just wanted her kids photographed as, like many families, it is hard to get everyone in one place once they are out of school. We photographed around the lake, boat house and behind the club. We really were eyeing the golf course but, unfortunately, it was blistering hot and no one looks good when they melt.
I hope you enjoy the family portraits and I want to thank the Christopher family again for bidding on my auction prize.
