Dancer: Bella Exum

For Bella’s 13th birthday we celebrated with a photo shoot at the beach. Together Bella and I chose the locations and styled the shoot to show off her incredible talents as a dancer. Bella’s passion for dancing has grown every year since she was 2 and a half years old. Bella you amaze me more and more every day. You are intelligent, beautiful and gifted beyond measure. You have so many great talents. I love you. Dad.

Vineyard Camp

The team at Exum Photography has had the privilege of capturing summer camp fun with both still photography and video at the Vineyard Camp for the past 3 summers. The Vineyard Camp is a Christian sports camp with an international draw nestled in the picturesque countryside of Brown Mountain, North Carolina. Children at the Vineyard learn to play and deepen their faith all while being exposed to new cultures and languages creating a network of global friendships. The Vineyard is a ministry dedicated to relationships and discipleship. Our goal is to share God’s love and demonstrate holy living through the stewardship of their staff.

Grayson Gant Hampson – Artist, Newly Wed, Mother

This blog entry is about a very special client that in just over one calendar year has commissioned Steve Exum to photograph her line of hand crafted jewelry, her engagement, her bridal portrait, her wedding, and most recently her new born, Jacob. Grayson Gant Hampson is an artist, an entrepreneur, a newly wed (in my book) and now a new mom. She is is extraordinarily beautiful from her core to her exterior. She is intelligent, spiritually grounded in a way few people are and she is a joy to be around.  We are sharing a few photos from each of the assignments to that tell a visual story of Grayson Gant Hampson.
