remember these crazies?

Photobucket
well...airlie elise was born in may and let's just say seth and jill are head over heels for her. here they are when she was not even a week old.

Photobucket
i had a chance to go see them a couple of weeks ago and we had fun with a quick photo session of airlie in her new dress. yes, it does have tulle! we joked a lot about the fact that she's going to kill us for these pictures when she's 16. i can't wait. enjoy!

kristen & justin: engaged!

when kristen started dating justin, he lived in downtown Wilmington, right above "A Carolina Wedding." as we walked and talked during their session, she shared with me about the thoughts that would go through her head each time that she visited justin at his apartment. :) maybe an upcoming WEDDING in their future??? there could not have been a more appropriate place for us to begin our time together...

time flies.

well, well, well. wouldn't you know that summertime would just FLY. yesterday began my 6th week of summer vacation...and i have 4 weeks left. you know what that means. i'm over half way through. where does the time go!?

i have so enjoyed time at the beach, the lake, raleigh, wilmington, etc. and i have been fairly busy with photography sessions in between as well. it always brings me so much joy to charge my camera batteries, plug in an empty memory card, and head towards a location where i get to stop the hands of time for just a few moments. i love taking pictures of people that love being with each other!

here's a brief preview of what will be hitting the blog over the next couple of weeks. get ready!!

kristen & justin's engagement session:

and i am so, so, so excited to tell you that i'll be venturing out west to the denver, co and phoenix, az areas in august. to say that i'm stoked about getting pictures of red rocks, the rocky mountains, and other beauties that God has created would be an understatement. i'll update from the road! promise.

enjoy these last few weeks of summer! :)

Baby Hudson.

first of all, katie and paul's nursery furnished for the arrival of their new little one is UNBELIEVABLE. it's bright, modern, and beautiful. filled with creative pieces from anthropologie and other more personal aspects, it may be the most gorgeous nursery i've ever walked into over the past few years. katie has done a lot with interior design in the past, and if this room doesn't show off her talent and ability to make a space come alive, i don't know what will!

and to add to the beauty of it all is baby boy hudson rives. we enjoyed our time together and i just can't wait to watch him grow up! :) enjoy!

Daniel and Kirsten's Wedding Slideshow

two weekends ago, i was delighted to be able to shoot daniel and kirsten's late morning wedding in chapel hill. the weather was perfect, the ceremony was gorgeous, and the reception was filled with lovely family and friends. these two were so confident in their decision to commit their lives to each other, and it was truly a joy to be with them on the day that they made it official!

isn't she lovely??
