laura & stephen

babies, babies, everywhere! with all the beautiful glowing mamas-to-be floating around these days, it's hard not to get excited about the baby BOOM i'm convinced is happening right now. laura is no different - she's been smiling for months, and poor stephen is so excited that he doesn't even know his baby girl already has him wrapped around his finger.

i had so much fun with these two at their home in roxboro on sunday! stephen is actually the crazy first cousin of my almost-husband (wow...i have an almost-husband), so this session was extra special because i got to spend it with some almost-family! baby lexie will be spoiled rotten, and as if all of her other adoring fans won't be here to do it, i'm going to be sure to spoil her too!

officially the cutest baby girl nursery i've ever seen!

stephen, if it embarrasses you that i'm blogging about you and laura, too bad. (just think of what i COULD have posted for the world to see!) besides, i can't help it...these sessions get more and more fun everytime!

i couldn't wait to post this one! little lady payton and her mama and daddy gave me one of the most fun baby shoots i think i'll ever do. this baby beauty is a little over 5 weeks old, looks like a doll, and already has an awesome sense of humor. :)

if i've learned anything in my time as a portrait photographer, it's that you can never NEVER know what to expect from kids...especially the itty bitty ones. payton made her naked baby photo debut one that none of us in that room will ever forget...or let her forget. ;) scott and wendy, this is a story for the first date.

thanks y'all!

oooooh how i love little boys! i was so excited to be asked to photograph baby jake with his parents, leighanne and david. it's always nice to do a little work back home, and this one was extra extra fun. this baby is an angel. can't wait to watch him grow up and run wild. ;) have you ever seen a sweeter face?! (of course it doesn't hurt that he's already a carolina fan.)

hey sandfoot, WHERE are you NOW?

i understand that it's kinda ridiculous for me to create a post without images. i'm a photographer. photographs are what i do. i know, i know. the photos are backed up and waiting in line to hit the blog and i can promise that i've got some great stories and beautiful faces to show in the next couple of days. hang with me - first thing's first!

i've already dubbed 2009 as "the year of change." (hopefully not the kind that jingles in your pocket, but the kind that brings excitement, challenges, growth, and new opportunities for us all.) i just made my first change of the year last week, and i thought it deserved some quick recognition of it's own before i dove back into the good stuff.

on february 1, i moved to roxboro. for those of you who know me well, you might be thinking, "what's the big deal about that? you've moved once a year since 2002. what's the difference?" but you see, this time there IS a difference. for the last 6 years i've moved from home to college, from dorm room to apartment, from apartment to house, from house to apartment, from apartment to apartment, and so on. everytime i moved, i moved with the knowledge that i'd be moving again soon...probably to another corner of the triangle. hey, i'm young and flexible, why not try it all, right?

i've loved parts of chapel hill, raleigh, cary, and durham, and had i not found such a fun and handsome best friend to marry me and drag me out of there, i probably could have continued to be content in whatever corner of the triangle world would have come next. but then, i didn't say 2009 was the year of content...i said it was the year of change.

i've been in roxboro one week now and i could not be happier with the thought of living here for the rest of my life. i didn't realize how much i'd missed home cookin', sunday afternoons, completely southern accents, and being part of a tight community until i found it again here. so thanks roxboro, for welcoming me into your family. my camera and i are here to stay!

and finally, to answer the number 1 question of all of my triangle friends and clients - it changes nothing. sandfoot photography will still operate in your area - you're not getting rid of my face (or my camera) anytime soon. ;)

xoxo all around,
