Cayle and her daughter met me at Cedarock Park in Burlington.  This area is very quaint and has terrific lighting.

The “B” Family – Chapel Hill, NC

Sunday, December 18th, 2016

This day in Chapel Hill was VERY COLD.  These girls were the very definition of the word “trooper”.  They braved the wind and temperature for us to get these and more shots.  I cannot wait to work with them in fairer temperatures.

Portraits with the “C” family!

We all met at the Leak Wall House in downtown Rockingham.  This is a nice time of year now that the flowers are in bloom!

A beautiful family. Love the pastels!


Thanks for choosing me as your photographer!  -duane

The “R” Family Portraits

Sunday, January 1st, 2012

Wow.  I haven’t blogged in so long!  This was a swell session with the “R” family.  These were taken right at the end of fall of last year.  We still had lots of leaves to play with.

Above: Yeah I really have become a fan of this viewpoint style image.

Above and Below:  Sometimes it’s best to stop posing and photograph families being families.

Above: Their Christmas image.  Thanks you all!


The “M” Family

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Today the “M” family and I shot family portraits around Hinson Lake and their home.  I was a little bummed at first due to the construction equipment and signs all over Hinson Lake.  But that didn’t stop us!

I believe this was little "M"'s idea. Mom, Dad, and I were talking for a moment. Next thing you know he was down on the ground playing in the leaves. So we joined him!

This fella sure had a lot of energy this afternoon!

Although the Hinson Lake area is under construction, we still found neat little places to shoot.

Their land around their home is quite photogenic as well. Especially this time of year.

Thank you all for allowing me to work with you today. I hope we can do this again sometime!


2011 Seaboard Festival – Hamlet NC

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

The city of Hamlet, NC kicked off its annual Seaboard Festival today.  There were booths of all types.  Food, crafts, photography, face painters, singers and train rides were among them on this brisk Saturday.  I hope you enjoy some of the images I captured!

Main street was pretty packed for the whole day.

Two trains were running non-stop. Each were on opposite ends of Main Street.

Snow cones, chips, funnel cakes, hot dogs, sausages, asian, turkey legs, blooming onions, popcorn.......

This was one of my favorite booths at the festival. This fella makes rubber band shotguns. He fashions wood into the shape of a shotgun. He then applies a clothespin plus a hook for the rubber band. Afterwards, you have a fully functional rubber band shooter. This gentleman told me there was some concern about selling these at the festival. The officials told him he could come this year, and would base future participation as long as there were no mishaps with the rubber bands. I personally hope to see him again! Below is a six second video I shot of a demonstration.

Kids games and the ever popular Scuba Steve were on hand.

I didn't realize this, but most vendors do not have brick and mortar stores. Nor are they online. They sell only in festivals and fairs. The gentleman above takes his huge collection of toy cars from fair to fair for his business.

I should have gotten my face painted!

And finally, lots of music from local church singers.

If I photographed you and gave you a card, please email me at info@duanecochran.com or call me to get your image.  910-334-3048

See you next year!


Portraits with lil’ T.

This fella just oozes cool.  Especially when he access to a hat.  And when the black ants came out, he kept it together while dad brushed him off!
