Nikki and Graylan were married a few years ago at Autumn Creek Vineyards. I was there to capture their wedding day. When Nikki contacted me and said how awesome she thought it would be for me to continue to photograph their growing family, I was thrilled! We set up a bump session at Pilot Mountain, with no idea that it would be a warm January day. So warm in fact, that it seemed everyone in NC decided to head there. A wait to get into the park was totally worth the images we were able to capture. There was the most beautiful sunset painted across thy sky that made for a beautiful backdrop for Nikki and her 30 week bump. Congratulations you 2 on your new addition. I can’t wait to meet him!
Fall portrait season has been incredible. All of my clients have returned for their annual portraits plus some new ones! Here is one of favorite families. I met the Gladd's when I moved into my current home. I had started marathon training shortly after and Heather was doing the same. I actually ran my first half marathon in Greensboro with her! They have since moved to a new home but we still keep in touch and I love getting to photograph them every year and see how much the kids have grown. I met them at Tanglewood for their session and we found a perfect spot for their photos.
Natalie and Demetri contacted me on referral from one of my existing clients about 2 weeks before their baby boy was due. They wanted someone to capture the birth of their sweet boy and a few pictures of them together after so that Demetri could be completely there for Natalie during her labor. I wish I had done this when both of my girls were born. I was on call all day and Demetri kept me updated. At 10pm she still hadn't made much progress so I knew that I would be up most of the night waiting to hear. I dozed on and off and got a call around 4am that it was time. I made the 45 minutes drive to Forsyth Medical Center and arrived just in time of Natalie to start pushing. An hour or so later baby Drake was born. What an amazing thing to be a part of. I feel so blessed and honored to be trusted with such a task. These photos speak for themselves.
