I saw this little boy today.  Three years old.  Small-framed child.  So sweet.  He was sitting on a couch sucking the two middle fingers on his left hand.  Wanted to photograph him right then.  That sweet innocent face.  So vulnerable and soft.

I wondered if his mom has these photos.  She may be seeing his finger-sucking with practical eyes.  Thinking $ signs of future orthodontic expenses.  I tend to be that practical thinker, too.

I hope she sees what I see – even just for a moment.  A small sweet innocent boy, so different from the man he will become and stay for the vast majority of his life.  I hope she thinks to photograph him now.  If braces are in his future, they are a temporary financial burden.

If she has this photograph, later she WILL look at these times differently.  She WILL be reminded of this small, sweet, dependent little boy who sucked his fingers for comfort.  She WILL think about how simple and safe it was to be his parent then.

I had the pleasure of photographing Terri’s daughter’s wedding a couple years ago.  And just last week, we created her updated business head shot image.  She is a dance instructor and judge.  I just loooove dance.

It was so nice to see you again, Terri!

THAT was a BLAST!!! { photographer in rocky mount, nc }

WOW!  That was a blast!  The Open House Saturday was so much fun, I think we’ll do it again this year.  It was wonderful to see so many friends.  It was like a house-warming party : )   Fun to show everyone around the new digs.  Thank you all for coming!

Wanted to announce the winners of the $100 gift card drawings we had every hour.
