News Flash... Here We Grow Again!




W
ell, you may have already heard but just in case you haven’t, hop over to Iron Kite Films and watch one of the most precious videos you will ever see... at least I think so. Lindsey and Neil are expecting another child sometime around the first of next year. We are so excited to see what God has in store for this one--and for us as we get to witness another one of His amazing miracles.

Now, on to my first four little "miracles". I got my Leica out and made a few photos of Bradyn and the girls. Beckett's were shot digitaly. I really love the way the photos look from the Leica and the 50mm Summicron lens, sharp and yet soft. The last shot of the boats was shot with this combination as well.

Jackson




B
aby Jackson is growing by leaps and bounds. It’s always interesting to watch little ones as they grow, not only in their appearance but in their personalities as well. It’s fun too, to watch his Papa dote over him. I shared a few minutes with Laura, Jackson, and Papa last week and came home with a few photos. I hope you enjoy them!

Faces : Mike Plummer




I
never had an older brother but if I would’ve, I would have wanted him to be like Mike. To borrow a phrase from country folk, “Mike is good people”. He grew up on a farm at the edge of Davidson county with a brother and sister. They didn’t have all the luxuries city people had. While I spent my childhood days either playing in the woods or chasing, throwing, and kicking some kind of ball around, Mike was gathering firewood, milking cows, or working on farm equipment. When a boy grows up with responsibilities he becomes a man much faster. He’s knows things us ball chasers have no clue about. It was a good thing that Mike grew up quickly, when he turned eighteen he was drafted into the military and served our country with honor in the Vietnam war.


I first met Mike when I went to work for Duke Power Company. He stood out from the rest of the crowd by the fact that his clothes were always clean, his boots shined, his belt buckle directly above the zipper line on a pair of blue jeans that were properly creased. Mind you now, this was at 4:30 after a day of working eight hours or more in the hot sun with rubber gloves and heavy equipment. I was assigned to work with Mike on a line truck. He took me under his wing and patiently tried to teach me the skills necessary to become a good lineman. I remember my primary job was to make sure no tools were left on the job site as we traveled from one location to the other. On our second job of the first day, we got out of the truck and reached for the shovels... they weren’t there. “Where’s the shovels?” Mike asked. “I guess I left them at the last job” I sheepishly replied. We got back in the truck drove twenty miles back to the first job and there laying out in the field were the shovels... and my gloves, and a hand tamp, and a ground rod driver, and my hammer! Geez, it looked like someone was getting ready for a yard sale. In one way I felt badly about it, in another way I felt lucky that I wasn’t left behind.


You might not be able to convince Mike, but I learned so much working with him--not just a few job skills but other things as well. I learned things like doing for others, and keeping a positive attitude when life isn’t going your way. I miss working with him and I miss listening to the stories he told on rainy days about his childhood and the time he spent serving on the front line in Vietnam. I’m grateful for his service to our country and for his friendship to me. I love Mike Plummer... the older brother I never had!

NC Wedding Photography {Amy and Brandon}




W
e introduced you to Amy and Brandon several weeks ago here....needless to say, we were already getting excited about their Graylyn Estate wedding.

With thunderstorms and monsoon type weather looming, Amy and Brandon moved their outside ceremony inside. IT was beyond beautiful. Amy and Brandon couldn't have had a better wedding planner or florist. They moved like crazy to bring the outdoors, inside. It was flawless and the bride was as well.

Congratulations Amy and Brandon...you guys are beautiful inside and out. I know that you all will have a wonderful and adventurous live together.

All the best...
Lindsey
