The best time of year to photograph someone outdoors is the fall. The color just adds another dimension to a photograph that you just can't get any other time of year. I've had the opportunity to photograph the Williams family for several years now and they always end up with fantastic outdoor family portraits. If you would like pictures of your family that you will never forget, call me soon before all the colored leaves disappear.

One of the great things about being a photographer in North Carolina is being able to photograph weddings at beautiful outdoor locations. I shot this particular wedding at Frisco on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. It was almost 100 degrees when I took this picture of the Laughlin's on their wedding day. I was so impressed with their attitude because they valued taking the time to get great photos as a couple instead of rushing to the reception like most couples do. They could have bowed out due to the heat but they didn't and now they have memorable images that will last a lifetime.

Kirk Pullen Photography was hired to photograph students participating in the Active Routes to school program in several counties in North Carolina. I recently photographed the Walk at School day events at Wallace Elementary School and Roseboro Elementary School. The students learned safety tips about what side of the street to walk on and what to wear when walking at night. The students also learned about the health benefits of walking. I think I got my 10,000 steps in covering both of these events because I was worn out when I returned home.

Have you ever gone out and taken so many photos that when you get home, you don't get a chance to edit them all? Well that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was browsing through my hard drive of old photos and came across this gem. I had even shot the photo in 5 different exposures to bring out the details in the highlights and shadows. After looking at the metadata I realized that this photo of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse is 3 years old.
