hanging with baby ben

First of all, nothing beats a baby boy in oshkosh overalls...i mean nothing. :) please look at that grin.

it's been six months since i first met courtney and daniel. i photographed the couple back in february - courtney with her beautiful baby-to-be-belly and daniel with that unmistakable i'm-gonna-be-a-daddy kind of grin. ben was born in april, and at three months, he's absolutely one of the sweetest and toughest little men i've ever had the pleasure to meet.

like his daddy and uncle, ben is guaranteed to grow up loving the farm. from the looks of it, i think the farm might just love him!

...but me and my camera, i'm not so sure. ;)

thanks so much to the hendersons for allowing me to catch a glimpse of your new family! looking forward to years of precious times to come.

whitney & jay

i'm off this afternoon to one of my favorite spots at the sarah p. duke gardens in durham (yes, on duke's campus...i can't help but love it anyway) to photograph whitney welch in her gorgeous bridal gown. since it would be a photographer's SIN to share the secret of how beautiful she'll be as a bride, i thought i'd finally post a few images from her engagement session instead. she and jay are so much fun and i can't wait to be there when they walk down the isle in october! it's right around the corner!

at home with the porterfields

it's all business now that i'm back to work. i've been so busy shooting lately that i've stored a ton of photos in my "ready to post" folder...just haven't taken the time to get them up yet. here goes!

i had the exciting opportunity to work with the porterfield family here in roxboro a couple of weeks ago. miss tina has two awesome kids who know how to give a great mother's day gift - a portrait session! - and we ended up with the perfect day to shoot outside on their gorgeous farm. images like these are the reason my personal photographer's passion lies outdoors. everyone was right at home and happy!

thanks so much tina, willie, caitlin & matt for allowing me to document your family fun. i had a blast!

we're baaaaaaaack!

is it august already!? the wedding has come and gone, we're home, settled and unpacked, married life is great, and it's time to get back to work! (no offense, but i already miss jamaica.)

although i'm working already (just did not one, but TWO fabulous weddings last weekend), i thought i'd take a minute to share the photos that so many of you have asked to see.

i also wanted to say a great big THANK YOU to carol, joe, and the ladies at conway photo & print shop for giving alan and i the greatest gift we could ever receive - a lifetime of memories of the craziest, most exciting, most blur of a day of our lives. we could not be happier with the result!

and yes, this is really me raving about another photographer on my photography blog. every photographer has those that they admire, and carol is and will always be at the top of my list. thanks again!!!
