This Little Piggy Dance

Caroline is my little dancer through and through. I've got all these videos on my phone of her dancing around anywhere music is playing. Here's Caroline's original choreography for This Little Piggy Went to Market from Sesame Street. If nothing else, skip to 1:50 to watch the grand finale...she does quite the yoga lunge jazz hands finale.


If you're wondering why she dances in front of the oven it's so she can watch herself in the reflection. Self confidence is not lacking in this house clearly.

Still Catching Up

Here's a little taste of a few fun photo sessions I did from the past year that fell through the need to be blogged cracks until now...

Such a fun family portrait session at American Tobacco Campus.

I've had the joy of photographing this family two years in a row. And my how little O has grown in just a year.




This little boy's two year photos were so much fun. It was a cold late autumn day but he was such a trooper and we had such fun. Added bonus photographing in late fall might mean getting to play in a pile of leaves. You better believe if there are piles of leaves nearby I'll be doing that again for fall photos





 And this sweet baby boy's newborn pictures. I've enjoyed getting to know his mama and big sis on many playground dates.





It's always a joy to be chose to capture precious moments and memories for families. It's a responsibility I don't take lightly and one that will never lose it's magic. Thanks to these sweet families for letting me be a part of capturing moments and memories for them.

Family Portraits From Spring

I've finally been catching up just a bit on blogging. Here are some highlights of our family portraits we had taken by Rosa Ashdown last April at Bennett Place. Halfway through our Sunday morning photo session a Confederate General and a Union General each on horseback meandered by, tipping the hats to us and wishing us a good morning and urging us to join them at the church service they were on their way to. Just another day below the Mason Dixie Line. 






And yes, I'm fully aware Caroline is missing in a lot of these. She would absolutely not cooperate no matter we tried bribing her. Par for the course with toddlers, right? Rosa was so gracious and sweet regardless of Caroline's bad mood.  And still managed to capture so many beautiful images. Thanks, Rosa!







Oh and full disclosure here. I grew up going to the surrendering re-enactments and charge re-enactments at Bennett Place. And even fuller disclosure I dressed appropriately in, ahem, Civil War era garb. Because when you live in the South it's just a normal weekend activity.
