My favorite part about being a family photographer is being able to watch families grow and change. This family is a special one as I was lucky enough to photograph Megan and Ken's wedding a few short years ago. I've seen their daughter grow from a teeny tiny snuggle bug to a walking, talking toddler. And then just recently I was able to document their family as they prepared to welcome a baby brother into their hearts! I'm so excited to meet him and photograph this beautiful family soon as their son was born only two days ago! Yay! Congratulations guys!
No, this is not their backyard. Nor is it mine. Gah, I wish! This incredible live oak is at Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, NC. Photographic opportunities await around every azalea bush here. There are some days that you can visit and practically have the entire place to yourself. Ideal for portraits! And we were able to sneak into the sunflower garden just before the gates closed on the gardens. Phew! It. Was. Worth. It.
