I love this couple!

I photographed Nara and Jeff about 1 1/2 years ago right before their June 2008 wedding (woohoo my 1st repeat customer!).  They are so relaxed in front of the camera, and Nara is the cutest pregnant woman ever!  I can't wait to meet "baby skippet!"

Meet the Thomas Family

Meet the Thomas Family, whose 2 girls cheer at Charlotte Allstars.  Of course I had to ask them to tumble for me - plus it was a little chilly and I was trying to help warm them up : )


I love the next pictures of just the 2 sisters!

I thought Jennifer, the mom, did such a great job coordinating outfits!  Don't they look good?!

Spring and Summer Pictures

I was looking through my pictures from this year, and I thought I would post a few on my blog.  First up, Sam and me at the beach this summer.  This is at the dock at Calabash, NC where all the good "fish fry" restaurants are - yum, nothing beats fried flounder!

Here are a few pictures from my bridesmaid luncheon at Sante Restaurant in downtown Matthews.  I had the great honor of wearing my Nanny's wedding dress that is 62 years old!  The seamstress at Nitsa's, Lillian, restored the dress for us and did a wonderful job.  Yes, that's right, my grandparents have been married for 62 years! The last picture is all of my wonderful friends!

It Sold!

My Silent Auction Item (see post below) sold for $80!  It received 4 bids - 3 of which I might have had a hand in ; )  The first bid was from my friends Ryn and Nichole - they were being very nice - and thank you!  The second bid came from Sam's basketball coach, Coach Young.  I spent about 10 minutes standing about 5 - 7 feet away from my auction item - stalking any potential buyers : )  Coach Young walked by and I pointed out my item, and he politely placed a 2nd bid!  Shortly after a couple started to look at the pictures, and of course I was standing by, so I introduced myself as the photographer.  They also politely put a bid on the item and gave Sam and me a hint to check out their silent auction item as well!  So I wasn't the only one trying to sell my item!  When the silent auction ended, I was very curious to see if there was another bid on my item and there was!  There was a 4th bid that I had nothing to do with!  Woohoo - I am very happy that my item donated $80 to the Wofford Terrier Club!  Go TERRIERS!

On another note, I have 3 photo shoots lined up between now and November 1st so stay tuned for more pictures!

Wofford Terrier Ball

It's Wofford Homecoming this weekend!!!  Yay!!  Since I have missed the last 2 years (for very good reasons I might add! check out my Hamptons post from last October and you'll see why), I am so excited to be returning to Sparkle City this weekend! 

Rhea, who serves on some Terrier Club board or committee, asked me to donate a piece of photography work to the Terrier Ball Auction.  I happily agreed, and made her ride to Spartanburg with me so I could take some pictures of the campus.  I decided to do a 3 piece series.  The pictures are printed as a standout, and they are all 10x10.  This blog really doesn't do it justice.  I'll try to snap a picture of them on display at the Terrier Ball.
