NC Engagement Session ~ Brandon & Jessica




O
ctober has always been my favorite time for outdoor photography. Lower temperatures and humidity are nice but the quality of light is simply amazing. What a pleasure it was to share the beauty of an October afternoon with Brandon and Jessica. Thanks for a great day!

Hijacked




I really hate that I have to do it this way....I’ve been waiting and waiting and waiting to be asked to guest write a blog post, but nothing.

I’m hijacking this blog (sorry, dad).

I suppose I should introduce myself. I’m Lindsey, Rod’s daughter, running buddy and second shooter/creative mastermind (I added that last part--hope that’s okay dad) with a tendency to embelish. Dad has been meaning to introduce me to you all--even said he’d do this amazing post. But I was getting tired of waiting (I’m a second child--we struggle with this, okay?). So I searched the office (again, sorry dad) and found the password to the blog. YATZEE! I’ve been waiting for weeks to find the right subject matter to make my big debut. And yesterday--I found my material in a BIG way!

Let me start by saying this...one of the most endearing qualities about dad is that he is really a kid at heart. He loves to play--loves to laugh--and rarely takes himself too seriously. I love that about him.

SO yesterday, I noticed that it was awful quiet in the office. I assumed that because I was deep in thought about my next act of creative genius, I probably couldn’t hear dad working tirelessly at his computer. All of the sudden--just as I was on the cusp of something amazing (I promise)--I was awakened--er--disrupted--by the sound of laughter. I looked out the office window to find Bradyn, Layla and dad laughing hysterically. I grabbed the camera--determined to catch dad in action. And catch him I did--enjoying a beautiful fall day, while I (ehem) was working--or reading people.com--but what’s the difference, right?

Seriously...dad? Aren’t you a little too big for this...AND we have a race coming up...AND a business to run. Just sayin...

Beckett ~ Sunday's Child




A
fter nine months of waiting patiently, Beckett made his earthly debut. Sunday morning at about 1:00 am Christy called to say she was ready. I raced to the car and drove to their house to stay with Bradyn while Christy and Nick left for the hospital. At 8:27 am we had a beautiful baby boy... six pounds, thirteen ounces, nineteen and three quarter inches of pure sweetness! Bradyn was so excited to meet his little brother, you could see it on his face as he held him close. I was told by someone with great experience that there would be enough room in my heart to love as many babies as the Lord provided. At one time I couldn't see how, but, it's true... remarkably true. Just one look, one touch, and it felt as if my heart left my chest and merged with Beckett's. I'm not so much looking forward to the day we can play ball or ride a bike, that day will be here soon enough. Right now I count it a blessing to hold him close and do whatever it takes to make him feel loved. And do you know what makes all this even more special? I have a beautiful wife that feels the same way!

NC Children's Photography ~ Avery




T
ime does pass quickly ... seems like only yesterday I photographed Avery for the first time. She must have been two, maybe three years old and pretty as a picture. She wore her hair in a little ponytail on top of her head, kind of like Pebbles on the Flintstones. Every year I look forward to my time with her and her mom. Watching her grow and change from a little girl that, on occasion, had to be bribed, to a young girl who enjoys our sessions has been a joy. The speed that little ones grow should be a reminder to us all to hold them close and dear to our hearts while they're young ... never looking forward to tomorrow just to look back and long for today.

High Point Senior Photography ~ Jes




P
hoto sessions with seniors are so interesting. I am forever amazed at the level of maturity some of these young folks have...wish I would have been more like them! Jes has an interest in sports marketing, I believe he'll be successful no matter what he chooses. Join me in wishing him a fantastic senior year.
