FAE

At what age did you start dancing?
I started dance at the age of 4 not by choice but for the best sense I was terrible at any other sports.

How/why did you start dance?
I was started into dance to try to make friends and learn new skill to help me in the future like grace and how to hold yourself properly.

What have been your biggest struggles and triumphs throughout dance?
My biggest struggles has defiantly been battling back from knee surgery as well as having complete confidence in my dance my biggest triumphs defiantly getting back to dance for the first time since knee surgery learning new skills and actually becoming rounded at all genres of dance.

If you could dance along side any dancer who would it be?
Defiantly misty Copeland just to see all the technic she has learned in her career.

What does dance mean to you ?
Dance mean a family and space away from the stress of school and family. A way to realse all emotion and be able to let it all go with no judgement.

Why do you choose brii cher'ri photography to capture your passion &love of dance?

Because she's amazing and is different the other photographers who see dancers as classical forms that can only do the normal things where brii pushing the limits of my ability and make me learn to things for her new ideas and we do things I have never seen before.

The Snow Ballerina : Sarah Edenton Dance Stars

So excited to share these stunning shots from Sarah's Snow Ballet session from our past storm! 
It was definitely an experience for both of us as I got to make snow and bright white try to fit my moody & contrasty style & Sarah had to do ballet in 8 inches of snow! 
I am pretty proud of us both for rocking it out & creating these amazing works of art! 
I couldn't be more ecstatic with the outcome! 
I love being able to create these stylized artistic sessions with dancers like Sarah & Fae who both dance for Edenton Dance Stars! While I normally specialize in boudoir & Weddings , Dancers definitely make my heart swell & push me creatively! I cannot wait to see what we come up with next!

OUR SNOW DAY!

OUR SNOW DAY!

Phoenix woke with wonder at the sight of snow of the ground outside! It was absolutely adorable! But once bundled up & outside I think the cold out weighed the wonder though he did crawl around , bounce up and down in it and of course... Eat it. 
We only stayed out for 5 minutes! No need for a cold sick baby in this house and he was done with the cold so inside we went  soaked from sitting in snow and rolling around for photos. Well him & I of course Joe was snug, Dry and warm as he wasn't about sitting in the snow hah! 
I am so happy that Phoenix's First year has been so amazing and hes been able to experience such things ! We almost never get snow so for him to be able to see it and play in it , it was pretty awesome!

Day 22 of Christmas with Phoenix ! The days are coming to an end

Simple & Sweet
Our version of Christmas decorating is very natural. Greenery and lights to accent our home which is full of handmade wood furniture and floors. The simpleness of day 22 definitely matches our Christmas style here at home.

Our 1st Family Christmas Photographs ! The Camacho Christmas Elizabeth City NC

A HUGE thanks to Powell's Roadside Markets for allowing me to photograph not only our photographs but all of my mini Sessions this year as well! 
I am super stoked with our photographs this year! Another HUGE thank you to the wonderful Fae & Jen Williams for being our button clickers instead of trying to use a tripod and remote for our family shots!  It took four people holding the camera at different times to get these. From me setting the camera up and photographing the baby, then the baby & Joe, Then Joe taking the camera and getting the baby and I , then fae taking the camera to do the family day time shots & then finally I got the lights set up and practiced a few shots with Fae  & then handed JEn the camera to get a couple of us as a family.
Whew yes it is really that much work but literally our session and theirs were doing within 40 minutes. We kill it , even in the CHAOS!

This year has been amazing and this first Christmas as a Mom has been spectacular thus far & I'm going to write a long mushy blog for you guys about that so for now, HAPPY Holidays, Merry Christmas, & all the JOY to you and your loved ones this Holiday Season. 
Remember what its about, whether to you that is Religion, Love, Giving back or Family. Relish in what makes this season beautiful for you & yours.
