I got to know Aisha after we sat next to one another in an estate tax class in law school. Her dry sense of humor and easy laugh made what is arguably a less than entertaining class a lot more fun than it would have been otherwise! So I’m sure that you can imagine how excited I was to find out that she was engaged and even more excited to meet Maqbool and shoot a few engagement images for them while I was in North Carolina! Maqbool’s awesome sense of humor and obvious affection for Aisha made me like hime right away and we had such a great time playing around at the West Point on the Eno park in Durham!
When I put the word out that I was headed down to North Carolina, former neighbor and fellow photographer Kathleen reached out to me about doing some headshots and fun portraits for her business! It’s always a blast to be able to collaborate and brainstorm with another photographer and we had such a great time playing around in the woods and then heading over to finish the shoot with some sweet horses! Kathleen’s daughter, Amelia, joined us…can you believe that when I met Amelia for the first time, she was three years old?!?!?! WHERE does the time go?!?!?! We just had to sneak in a few fun shots of the two of them as well!
As I traveled south toward North Carolina, I did a super fast stopover in Williamsburg, Virginia! It’s a special place to me…many of my fondest childhood memories are from the period of time my family lived here and then, later, it became such a special place to Justin and I that we chose to get married there! While our wedding took place amid Williamsburg’s famous holiday decor in late fall, this time I was here in time to see the very first trees budding and the stir of life awakening to spring warmth! I had a session in North Carolina that evening, so I woke in the wee hours and wandered Colonial Williamsburg as the sun broke over the horizon…so magical!
