I'm way, way, way behind on blogging any photography I've done business wise in oh say the last 8 months or so? 

So here's a smorgasbord of portraits from the last several months. Or really I should say collage and not smorgasbord because that is much more artistic and classy.

But I'm pregnant and thus food is on the brain and the word smorgasbord makes me think of the scene from the old Charlotte's Web cartoon movie where the rat goes feasting on food. And on that note I'm sticking with smorgasbord. And running downstairs to scope out the fridge. 

Back on topic...

A's senior portraits at UNC Chapel Hill including the Old Well- a Carolina classic.

The sweet C' family newborn & family session. Such a quality family, I could not have enjoyed being in their home and photographing their boys anymore. Thank you!!

Precious baby A's in home newborn session. Everything about this session was so peaceful, what a joy!

The S's family session at UNC's Coker Arboretum. A threatening rainstorm gave us the perfect lighting for this outdoor family session. Nothing quite like the thrill of chasing an impending rainstorm during a portrait session, I may love that just a bit too much.

So grateful to all these sweet clients for giving me the opportunity to capture memories for their families. That is, in my opinion, the best part of taking photos. 

I've had to turn several portrait sessions lately- being pregnant and our crazy family schedule has limited my availability. But I'm grateful for the families I do meet and get to photograph. And here's to hoping our crazy family schedule can calm down soon!

Caroline's House

Well, it's time. We thought it was about time Caroline got a place of her own. She found a really lovely one room house with a great view of the living room sofa. She's already beginning to make it look like home with crayon drawings and a few bunny stickers leftover from Easter as well as a pile of all my clean dish towels. (if something goes missing we've now learned to look in Caroline's house for the missing object).  

Here's a look...

And because I like to keep it real here - we certainly all know there's enough blogs out there (not to mention Pinterest!) that do stellar jobs at making us mamas feel inferior - here's a video of my toddler running around the house in just a diaper. Or as she says... "runaroundnakey". Because no, my child is never in an adorable outfit around the house. We save that for keeping up appearances outside the home. Or if I'm Instagramming and want to make you believe I have my act together.

 And the chateau Caroline makes a small appearance towards the end of the video so it's slightly relevant to this rambling post...
