As many of you know Tom and I are high school sweethearts. We have grown up together and have been there for each other through it all. The challenges of high school, applying to college, the crazy late nights and life in college, stepping into our first careers, getting married, me changing careers and pursuing the joys and pains of starting my own business, you name it.

You might remember our Christmas card from last year.

One of the things I love most about my job is watching my kids and families grow! It is amazing to me how much we all change in such short periods of time-especially the kids! I first had the pleasure of shooting Hunter last year. Check out some images from our 2008 session!

Today I am allowing myself to do something I love-back blogging. I have so many wonderful sessions that I have not blogged about yet! So this morning I said I would take a second to blog about two really special people and the beautiful morning we got to spend together.

Meet Kelly and Ian!

Kelly and Ian have the kind of love that makes you go wow! Ian lived in England and Kelly lived here in Raleigh. A little long distance could not keep them apart! Kelly asked Amber Byrd Photography to capture some images early one Friday morning before they were on their way downtown to be married!!!

The colors, the sun, their excitement… it all came together in a way that was just perfect. Click on the thumbnails to make the images full size!

Kelly and Ian are now living in England as adorable newlyweds! Thanks for inviting me to be apart of such a very special morning for you both. We all miss you here in NC and hope the sun and love always shines on you no matter where you are– like it did that special morning you became husband and wife!

This weekend a very special couple got married. I was lucky enough to do engagement pictures for Mike and Karin earlier in the year. Check out this awesome couple.

Mike and Karin are so laid back and so much fun! They brought their two beautiful dogs to our session and wanted to capture an image of them with both dogs for a Save the Date Magnet I did for them! Here is the image they picked for their magnet.


Here are a few more that I loved from our session. Click on the thumbnails to see the image full size.

Congratulations Mike and Karin! I could not be happier for you both. Thanks for inviting Amber Byrd Photography to capture this special time for you all.

As I traveled to Summerfield to meet my new friend Max for his three month session I kept thinking back to how long I have truly known his mom Sallie. Sallie and I went to pre-school together and played and dreamed about one day being real mommies, and now here it is 2009 and I am getting the chance to photograph and document this special time in her life. How quickly time passes and how vivid such long ago memories can be is really amazing…

So you can imagine how excited I was to meet this special little man!

Max was only three months old but he already had so much personality and was so so sweet! Here are some other favorites of the day! Click on the thumbnails below to enlarge the images!

Tomorrow I will head back to Summerfield to see how much Max has grown for our Six Month Session. I can’t wait to see you Max!
