An Evening in the Park

Evening in the Park - Colonel Beatty, Matthews

A Beautiful Evening in The Park

A warm summer evening, a beautiful park, a fun couple and a photogenic dog are the makings of a great photo session!  Nate and Abbey recently celebrated their first anniversary and decided it was time to get some pictures done of this first season in their marriage.

An evening in the park with Basil


Of course Basil, a Boston Terrier, was sure to get his time in front of the lens with his human parents.  This is a dog whose travels and explorations are documented at his blog, Basil’s Travels.  The threat of rain had caused a reschedule, but it was worth the few extra days wait for the beautiful light and nice temperatures.  We met up at Colonel Francis Beatty Park in Matthews in the early evening and had a great time.  Both Melissa and I were able to be part of the session and it was great to work together.

As the sun was going down, the lighting just got better, and the result was a chance to capture a young couple in the relaxed evening in the park.  Nate and Abbey, thank you for introducing us to Basil and for the opportunity to capture these images for the three of you!

A Birthday Photo Session

We spent a beautiful afternoon with this couple, whose daughter had arranged a birthday photo session for her mom. Such a good idea! As parents, it is easy to become accustomed to taking care of your children and not take the time to do something fun for yourselves. I love that their daughter thought of a gift that would be more of a memory than simply a material item. We had a great time capturing the joy in their eyes and their love for each other.

Wide-eyed Wonder

Wide-eyed wonder. That’s what this adorable little boy was full of every time a car drove by. He loves cars and trucks and trains, which made our location a perfect one for him. He will be joined by a new little brother this summer with whom I’m sure he will share his transportation knowledge!

Wandering Around Waxhaw

Our first shoot of the year was with this fun couple in downtown Waxhaw. Waxhaw is a thriving small town community with great old brick buildings full of character. Combine that with a couple who truly enjoys each other and you have a session that had everyone laughing. We may have ducked into Maxwell’s Tavern for one of their amazing burgers afterward.

Sibling Sweetness

Over Christmas we pulled my sister and her family out for some quick pictures. I think my niece and nephew are particularly cute, but I may be biased. : )

Farewell 2013

This family of four braved some chilly winter weather to get these shots. We were all thankful for the sun and time to capture them at the close of the year.

Fall Fun

On this beautiful fall day in the Carolinas, we enjoyed the light of the setting late afternoon sun filtering through the trees to capture a fun family. Throw in a cat that kept trying to meander into the frame and the antics of their youngest whose sass had us all laughing, and this was one fun fall shoot.
