A Washington Duke Inn Wedding!

 

My friend Anna called me on Monday; she wanted to know if I was available for a last-minute booking for a definitely long-coming wedding. The answer, of course, was yes!

Amy and Ian had been together for years, using tourist visas to see one another – but they had decided it was time to tie the knot! With just some local family in attendance, they exchanged their vows, promising each other patience and kindness. It was a lovely ceremony to behold!

Thank you, Amy and Ian, for letting me be a small part of your big day! Best wishes!

Krystle + Christian in the North Carolina Museum of Art

When Krystle told me she wanted to do her Christmas photos in the North Carolina Museum of Art, I was ecstatic. I knew I’d be meeting someone who had a flair for funky photos and an appreciation of the (surprisingly extensive and excellent) collection housed there. I was not disappointed!

We had a blast posing with Rodin’s and playing with the quirky, gorgeous surroundings. Exactly my kind of day. And would you just look at their complimenting plaid! My Scottish heart was singing for all the tartan love!

And this is only the beginning! Krystle and I are hoping to collaborate more in the future, so this is not the last you’ll see of this sartorially savvy lady!

Magical Marleigh & Maggie

If the fact that Lauren wanted to do a Harry Potter-themed newborn shoot doesn’t tell you how awesome she is, I don’t know what would.

Wingardium Leviosa!

Lauren, like Phillip and J and Brock, is a cornerstone member of our back-pew brigade of mischief-makers. Cuddling with these sisters and harmonizing with their mama on Sundays are some of my favorite things!

Marley is fond of calling her newborn baby sister, Maggie, “her” baby. When she wasn’t reading words to her from well-worn pages or shaking a snow globe, she was clutching Maggie’s hand and saying “my baby, it’s okay, I’m here!” Cue: heart melting.

Since we snapped these photos right before Thanksgiving, we could include a special guest- these girls’ great-grandmother. Lauren asked me to capture her beautiful hands holding such tiny, new life. What a breathtaking expanse of life in such a small, tender moment.
