Beautiful Ben!

Yes, I do primarily shoot weddings but I still do children's pictures when it comes to past clients, friends, and family. This precious boy is my cousin April's little angel. He was three in October and taking after her cousin Spring, she is just now getting his three year pics made. I am so bad that I haven't officially taken my children's pictures since last year at the beach (Bad Mama). So April is doing pretty well.

We had such a wonderful time doing these pictures. Ben is sooooo sweet and beautiful, as you will see. He was doing such a good job but it wasn't until his Papa Rick got there that his face truly lit up.

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family. I was never blessed with a sister of my own, so my cousins are the closest thing that I have had to a sister relationship. I don't get to see them as often as I would like to but it does make it even more special when we do get time to spend together.

I love you April, Carol, Michelle, and Kelley! I hope to see you all again soon!

These pictures were taken at our Great Aunt Kathryn's home in Statesville.

Here is Ben when he saw Papa Rick driving up in his car! Look how his little eyes just light up!

Just Catching Up!

I have a lot of catching up to do. We have been so busy but having a ball! My computer has been in the hospital for a while and I have just got it up and running. I want to start out with an absolute wonderful couple, Ruark and Jamila. This is the couple whose wedding I did in Chicago a few weeks ago.

Their love story is truly, truly amazing. Try to bear with me as I tell their wonderful story in the condensed version.

Their families were friends when they were young and they grew up together. It was not until their high school years that they began to date. At the end of Jamila's senior year her parents were forced to move because of her father's job. She remained in Chicago and lived with Ruark's family until she began college in the fall.

When she got ready to officially go to college, Ruark broke up with her so she could experience the college life without worrying about him. They each went their separate ways and didn't see each other again until about 20 years later. Jamila was living in North Carolina and was sent back to Chicago with her job. As soon as she got to Chicago she felt the undying desire to call Ruark up and ask him to meet her for lunch (after all it had been soooo many years since she had seen him). She got the guts up to call him but he was sick with the flu and couldn't meet her. Jamila called her brother and told him how disappointed she was that she couldn't see him. Her brother told her if she REALLY wanted to see him, she would go see him. Jamila agreed and drove straight to Ruark's house. As soon as she saw him and his beautiful family, she asked herself, "what have I been doing with my life?" She knew that he was the one she was supposed to be with forever. Ruark also felt the same about her. He had never married. He had been waiting on her and now she was here.

They have been together since. Their wedding was at the beginning of May and was one of the most beautiful and most meaningful ceremonies I have ever seen. Please take time and look at some of my favorite shots.
