Finally finished with nursing school at UNC, she’s on her way to working at Duke! As we were shooting at the Old Well on campus, another family chatted with Jamie about her plans after graduation. When learning she would be working at Duke, the dad said, “Oh well that’s fine. You can take Duke’s money all you want, just don’t give them any of yours!” Oh, that rivalry will always be the best. :) We explored the gorgeous arboretum on campus after the well, then made our way to Fearrington Village for a few more photos and a yummy dinner. Check out the gorgeousness!
Jamie, it was soooo awesome seeing you and all the fam! Thanks for bringing the ladies, and for rockin the camera. :) We’ll see you soon!
If you don’t know already, let me share some exciting news: we have a baby boy on the way! He’ll be making his appearance in August if all goes as planned, and he’s already changed our lives for the better.
We’ve done a little bit of shooting here and there this spring, and have a couple more photo sessions in the works before summer is officially here. But after those, we’re officially going on hiatus/sabatical/summer & fall break.
We didn’t plan this break in the beginning, but I’ve since found that shooting is quite a bit difficult for me already. My non-pregnant self typically does all sorts of yoga-style poses, squats & lunges, and lots of running when photographing kiddos. Well, that just can’t happen right now. So with this belly, which I love so dearly, and with Jordan taking on a third job now, this break is much needed. We’ll be getting ready for baby boy all summer, and enjoying time with just us while we can.
I’m currently at the end of week 22, and can feel our little guy dancing in my tummy as I’m typing. Right this very minute. He’s an incredible little guy, and is active just like his daddy. We’ll be sharing a little bit of this journey here, as well as some favorites from our last few clients this year. And as soon as we’re ready to shoot again, we will let it be known. :)
This dear family has now moved out of this home, but have made so many wonderful memories here. We were thrilled to spend a few hours with them, documenting some of their last days there. We tried to capture everyday, simple moments. These are what we most often want to remember when we grow older, and a simple photo can trigger so many sights, sounds, and smells that might otherwise be forgotten.
Eli and Elsa, here’s just a tiny peek at your childhood home. We hope you enjoy these now, but really hope you’ll love them in another decade or two. If you’re nostalgia addicts like us, we think you will. :)
There are many more photos coming your way, “R” family. Thank you so much for having us over, and for sharing your tasty blueberry pancake breakfast on a Saturday morning! Oh, I think I just gave myself a craving. Pancakes for breakfast tomorrow! :)
