Macie - A Burlington Senior Shoot

Well, I normally do my blog posts on Tuesdays, but I was so excited about this one, and they've been so patient, that I'm posting a day early! :) The thing I love about Macie is that these pictures describe her so well. She is kind, beautiful, and so easygoing. She didn't mind climbing in waterfalls or scrambling up massive turkeys. I worked with her mom for years and was SO excited when she asked me to do Macie's senior shoot! My favorite thing about this family is that they're not afraid to use props!! I love having props to spice up a shoot, and they did not disappoint. They had a carload full of pumpkins, mums, outfits, balloons...everything you could possibly need. And it was perfect! We shot at Cedarock Park which was a new location for me and I loved it. There were seriously so many favorites, so enjoy a few of them!! More on FB soon!

The Carey's - A BalloonFest Family Shoot

Yes, it is ridiculous that I've taken a break for so long. But rather than attempt to draw empathy for my busy schedule, I am instead going to tell you about some amazing people in my life that I just don't see enough anymore.

When I first moved to Greensboro back in 2010, it was a pretty rough time. I was living with my sister, going through lots of personal crap, and was very confused and unsure about my life. I was trying out different churches, and as I left a service one day this girl came running after me yelling. I thought something was wrong, but turns out she had seen my new face and wanted to make sure she introduced herself before I ran off like new people tend to do. She then invited me to go shopping at antique jewelry stores and made a Food Lion run, then I was going to campfire cookouts and she was introducing me to what was going to become my church home for the next 2-3 years. Which in turn, is where I met Michael. So really, a good amount of my happiness started with this amazing girl Matti.

I've known Matti & Chris since before their first sweet boy was born. I remember when Matti told me she was pregnant, and taking his newborn pictures. Unfortunately with us living 30 minutes apart now, we don't see each other that much, and I honestly miss them. A lot. BUT, we got to spend half a day together at the BalloonFest in Statesville! I've wanted to go for a long time and Matti had invited me the past 2 years and I was never able to go. I'm SO glad we did. It was a beautiful day, so many gorgeous balloons, and just hanging out with this family again was a blast. Matti & Chris have been ridiculously patient while I've taken forever getting their pictures ready, and hopefully they think it's worth it! Enjoy some of my many favorites!!
