here comes baby jack

if 2009 doesn't make the history books for being a baby boomin' year, i'll be shocked. i love it! i met lindsay in chapel hill earlier this year when she served as her sister chrissy's matron of honor (and bridal portrait photo assistant), and it was so good to see her again with such a sweet baby belly!
thanks lindsay and dan! can't wait to meet baby jack!

the corbett family

the weather might be getting crazy, but i'm not ready to give it up yet! it was a chilly morning at yates mill last saturday, but the oh-so-pretty corbett family came ready and willing to play anyway. i'm so so glad they did!
these three kids are some of the most fun and well-behaved siblings i've ever had the chance to photograph. it may have had something to do with a tootsie roll deal, but i'll bet they're this sweet 99% of the time...except when one steps on the other's foot. ;)
and here comes my cue that my time is up. there's only so much a kid can take!!! :)

sara and ben

MY GOODNESS i've been busy. i've had so many exciting sessions lately that i'm spending more time editing than sleeping it seems, but it's worth it when they're all so special...especially this one.
it's been almost eight years since i graduated from northampton county high school-east with this groom to be. if someone had told me then that i'd be photographing sara and ben's wedding several years down the road, i probably wouldn't have believed them, but i would have been thrilled. i got so carried away at their engagement session that i could have spent the entire day running them around the farm. and as much as ben claimed to have dreaded it, i think he had more fun than us girls. :)
see you two in march!!!

the broadfoot family

one of my favorite things about working outside of a studio is that i most often have the opportunity to capture a family's moments in their own favorite spaces. every now and then those spaces are not only special to the people i'm photographing, but they're absolutely inspiring to a photographer's eye. take a beautiful day and a home that's been passed down through generations, add one incredibly photogenic family of four and a dog, and you've got magic. ;)

meet my new favorite models. :) i love this expression.

we had plenty of smiles too...but this serious face is so beautiful to me!

Thanks so much to John and Marla for sharing your perfect family with my camera!

the jenkins family

in this line of work i'm lucky enough to meet beautiful new people everyday. every now and then i come across a families that can't hide how much they love one another - their smiling faces give it away. those are the sessions that stand out, and when i visited the jenkins' home on sunday, i knew immediately that this would be one of the greats!

i can't imagine what evan's folks have to go through when he looks at them with those big brown eyes. i'll bet he's got them wrapped. :)

thanks jenkins' family! see you soon!

growing like a weed

it's been six months since stacey and kelly welcomed baby eli into the world, and eventhough i'm lucky enough to get to see this cutie pie quite often, i still can't believe how much he's grown. he'll be a big boy before they know it!

with fall in on the way, the pumpkin patch seemed like the perfect place to play. eli wasn't quite sure what was going on, but he warmed up eventually.

back at home with his favorite two buddies, mom and dad, he was definitely ready to play.

Until next time!
