animal crackers, peacoats, and innocence.

i could post every image from this session. that's just how much i love it.

this family has been a huge part of my whole "life as a photographer." becky was my mentor my first year of teaching at creech road. in the past i have been able to shoot cora's 2nd and 3rd birthday parties, as well as some sister shots right after kassidy was born a while back. i was so excited when becky told me that they would be needing to schedule a family session for this fall. finally - you get to meet the parents! :)

this family is one of a kind. i hope you enjoy them as much as i do.

here's cora:

cora is most comfortable when she's close to home. in mom or dad's arms is a great place to be. she's not scared to step away, but usually pretty quick to come back. i love her love for life. she can entertain herself with whatever you put in her hands. and she loves her sister to death.

and kassidy:

kassidy is the most suspicious little one that i've ever met. she is more than precious, and i love how you can just tell that she's checking out every little thing about her surroundings. she finds the most comfort in wandering around with no supervision. i believe we have a brave one on our hands...

about halfway through the session, we needed a cookie break. animal crackers for everyone! and of course, cora entertained us while we "rested."

mallory: wrightsville beach.

mallory is two and a half. she is all girl and she loves pink. considering that it was a little bit chilly on the particular morning that we met to take pictures on the beach, let's just say that it was a good thing that i had a pink flower-shaped lollypop available. with the cool sand between our toes and the sun (called Mr. Sun! by Mallory) shouting out across the ocean, i was again reminded of God's goodness in his creation. not only in the beauty of nature, but more so in the pure beauty of children. i hope you get a glimpse of how joyous our time together was by seeing a few motion-filled moments being brought to a brief standstill. enjoy.

Haley: Senior Session

About a year ago, I shot a family session for the McClure's down at Fletcher Park. You may remember seeing it here on the blog.  I actually babysat for this family during my middle school years in Wilmington. Let's just say that the fact that Haley is a Senior in high school makes me feel kind of old. ;-) Bradley, their oldest son, is at Elon now...Haley is graduating from Broughton in June...and their youngest, Avery, is in the 8th grade.

A few weeks ago, I had the joy of meeting up with Haley at the Rose Garden in Raleigh to shoot some senior portraits. We had a great time together and I wanted to share some of her beauty with you! She is still contemplating where she wants to spend her college years, but I'm secretly pulling for her to join the Wolfpack...

Enjoy!
