It’s a New Year in a New Place for Cheryl Steinhoff Photography! Hello Cary, NC!

My family and I moved to NC  in the Summer of 2013 and have been exploring this part of the country as much as possible.  Now it’s time for me to get back to work!  I’m twitching with creative energy and I can’t wait to get my camera on the beautiful children of Cary and the surrounding towns.   I’ll be building up a new set of clients here, so keep in touch because I’ll be offering some great deals (cha ching…savings!) Don’t forget to check out my website:  Here are a few shots from our adventures in the “south” so far (yup, we’re damn Yankees!).

“One must maintain a little bittle of summer, even in the middle of winter.” – Henry David Thoreau

People often ask me if I like to photograph outside during the winter.  The answer is, “I do!”  There is beautiful light during the Winter, especially when there is snow on the ground.  The sun, low in the winter sky, shining through the bare trees is soft and brings a certain peacefulness to the images. Though there might not be flowers, the colors of scarfs and hats or vests lets us brighten the photos with the colors of our choice. Book your family’s winter shoot before the snow disappears!

Beauties at the Beach

I love these girls and I love Crane Beach in  Ipswich, MA.   Such a pleasure to photograph them on the beach and at the Great House where their parents were married.

I want to be with the girls…

This little man waited as long as he could until he just had to be in the photo with 3 of his favorite friends.  Not related, but certainly fits right into the family.  Photographing a beautiful family with a fantastic dad of 3 girls was a great way to celebrate father’s day in my mind! I’m one of 3 girls too and I wish my Dad a Happy Father’s Day!
