I'm back

Oh dear, it's been almost 3 months since I left a note in here. I guess I have a lot of catching up to do. I've been to places, and I've met so many new people. It's becoming quite difficult to remember people's names. This blog will be a long one to make up for the lost time. I'll do my best to make it entertaining...

February Highlights. I did some maternity sessions. I took pictures of an old-coworker, Megan and also of Audrelle who does hair and make-up at the Flawless visions salon. I believe I mentioned her several times. We've worked together on some boudoir events:

I also went to visit my family in Atlanta. It was Melody's, my youngest niece, 2nd birthday. She's so adorable! These girls are growing way too fast.

March Highlights. I took pictures of the Albaeck family again. It's always nice to see previous clients come back over the years. Kids grow too fast, or maybe I'm just getting older.

I also traveled with Ashleigh and Chuck (May 21, 2011 Wedding) to UNC Chapel Hill for their engagement session. It's nice to have a new environment and a new backdrop once in a while. Their wedding is already next week! This is so exciting. I wish I can also show off the bridal pictures we did at the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens, but I'll have to wait a little bit. You can find a few more of their engagement photos on my facebook fanpage and they are also to be added to my semi-new website (

 Evelyn and Jordan's wedding also took place this month. It was very small, but also one of the nicest intimate weddings I've been to. Such a *hot* couple.

Another highlight, the black tie gala at the Cape Fear Botanical Garden's new building. It was quite overwhelming to see all the contributor's to the new addition, and to be the first photographer to set foot and snap pictures at this huge venue. All the big people of this city were there. It was so beautiful! They had a live band, excellent food, and a great decorator.  If you plan on having 300+ guests at your wedding, I think this is the biggest and nicest venue for you.

Sarah's Trash the Dress Session. Sarah is getting married on September 10. Unfortunately I can't take her wedding pictures, because I was already booked for that date. I still needed to take her pictures somehow. So, we decided to promote a *Trash the Dress* session. Trash the dress sessions aren't quite popular in the east, yet, but I am trying to get it here. Basically, it's a relaxed session after the wedding that you can take in a location of your preference with or without the groom. We picked her backyard for this shoot to add a little character. However, you can do this the beach, on a farm, at the garden, at a carnival, on an open field. It's also a great way to save wedding-day- picture time and the stress that comes with it.  Note: She asked me to emphasize that this is not her wedding dress. You can find more on my website:

April Highlights. Couple's month! The weather was beautiful, the flowers were blooming, and love is floating in the air. Here are a few couples I photographed during the month of April. Of course, you can find more on my facebook. I also plan on adding some to the website.

And then I photographed Rachel and Jason Stapleton's wedding in Pinehurst/Vass, NC. It was so nice!! The church was grande, the reception was outstanding, and the dancing was ...what they called "so much fun!" Another surprise: President Jimmy Carter was there. I had no idea he would be there. It was really an honor to photograph a wedding with a special guest. Eitherway, Rachel and Jason were still the stars of the day.

Income Tax Due Date= My Birthday. Another year older. Another year wiser. Thank you everyone for the million greetings on facebook.

Once a year, my family and I also travel for a week. This year, we went to DC for the cherry blossom festival, Niagara Falls, Toronto, and New York.

May Highlights. The month isn't over, but I'd still like to give you a little something.

Robyn and John: What can I say,? You two are a happy couple, and I am so glad to have captured this special day. While I was going through the photos, all I was seeing were smiles. It was hard narrowing down the photos and deciding which smile is better than the other.

I'm so glad Jerome was able to assist me during this event. Thank you. :) Did I mention he just graduated? I'm so proud of him...
