Eason | A Newborn Photo Session in Mebane, NC

You know that thing? That amazing thing where in the midst of the sleeplessness and the hormones and the raw, powerful emotions that bounce around in the heads and hearts of new parents, when you look at them, you can't see anything but pure, unadulterated love? That thing kills me. Every time.


Chelsey & Justin, congratulations again: Eason is amazing (and so are you)!

Jack, Six Months Old | Durham Family Portrait Session

I think I'm in the minority on this, but given the chance, I would NOT choose to stop time with my kids. All the greeting cards and tee shirts lament the passage of time, but as much as I miss my babies, my kids are much more interesting to talk to and cook for and read to and go adventuring with.

A pause button, though? A pause button could come in handy for sure. And if I could pause time, I'd do so every other day between six months and a year. It is, hands down, my favorite baby age, full of smiles and wonder and giggles and thigh rolls and all the pudgy-handed love you can handle. Yeah... six months is pretty effing incredible.

I guess the camera is my version of the pause button.

Here's Jack, paused on perfect.

Love Grows | Family Portrait Session in Zebulon, NC

If being a mom for nine years has taught me anything, it's that all that heart-stopping, gut-wrenching, throw-yourself-in-front-of-a-train love you feel for your tiny baby the minute it arrives only gets deeper as the days and months and years go by, and as far as I can tell, that never lets up, never goes away; just gets deeper and more rooted like some grand, gnarled oak tree.

Families grow and change and branch and plant seedlings of their own, and although my first photographic love will always be the more photojournalistic-style portraits I usually make, large family portraits certainly have their (important) place as well. One shouldn't miss the forest for the trees, after all...
