Meet Abigail

Raleigh fine art photographer

Pleased to meet you! My name is Abigail. My photography journey began as a childhood hobby and flourished into a passion for visual storytelling.

I’ve always had a fascination with the way images make you feel. As a child, I would observe the world around me, searching for interesting things and people, and I would blink, over and over, imagining that my eyes were the camera shutter (if anyone gave me funny looks for this I never noticed!). I used to press the pause button on my favorite Disney movies and pretend that I had photographed the characters when the frame froze.

I studied mise en scène at the renowned Ringling College of Art and Design in sunny Sarasota, FL. Family brought me back home to NC, where I launched my photography studio with a profound understanding of the quote: “We do not remember days; we remember moments.”

A Raleigh native, I love my hometown and my family. I am a volunteer instructor and 5th degree black belt in TaeKwonDo. I love painting, traveling, and spending time with my husband and busy little boy.

(Thank you Jessica Kamens for the portrait of me.)
