The boy who made me an aunt 10 years ago hit the double digits today! I have so many memories of this guy. The first time I ever felt him kick (in-utero, of course), my sister leaned over me while we were sharing a bed and he kicked me in the bum! When he was born I went around telling all my friends in high school that I was an aunt. I couldn't have been happier and he couldn't have been more perfect. I even vividly remember taking care of him overnight when he was around 6 months old; I woke up frequently to make sure he was still sleeping on his back and breathing!
Cade, I can't believe you're growing up so fast. You're the coolest 10-year-old I know (and the sweetest, best at sports, and most definitely the most handsome). Happy Birthday!!!
I hope you have/had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I'm so grateful I get to spend the week with these little monkeys.
I photographed this beautiful family when I visited North Carolina last year and I was lucky enough to do it again this year! The whole shoot was a breeze and it was so much fun! We wandered around downtown Wilmington and discovered some really great spots. I LOVE the way their outfits all came together. The girls had such cute outfits that matched some of our locations perfectly! Little miss "S" here was a perfect model the entire time.
Despite the general aversion most people have toward clowns, I think this next shot went better than expected. This comedic fellow jumped into one of our pictures, though I only got two shots before "S" decided this was much too close for comfort! After sufficiently frightening the children, he pulled a peanut out of my ear and made a blonde joke.
"R" is such a great big sister!
These girls love their daddy!
This may have been my favorite part :). We stopped for hot cocoa (and a cinnamon bun for the girls) and I placed them next to the window for some lovely window-light. They didn't even notice me.
This shot with the whipped cream makes me want some right now!
A little clothing change and some sugar in them and then the magic happens!
We got a lot of dancing, giggles, and all-around-craziness. It was perfect.
Thanks for the fun day!
I love this shoot. Sure, the 3 year old wasn't exactly fond of me at first, but wow, after that doughnut! She was magic :). Enjoy some pictures of some beautiful people!
