New little ones…meet Henry! Look at those eyes! Henry “the tank” the most adorable tank ever… only weeks and going into 6 months clothes… the sweetest thing ever to document the parents years ago when they said “I do” to document their most precious thing ever now… truly blessed… adorable… “a pic of them in color is on my website” under weddings actually that I shot…and always their pic of them holding him on facebook yet, here it is..
This picture below describes how one of my students at Corvian Community School touched me more than words can express, a third grader named Giovianna. We were honored to come in as part of their art program, to teach a unit on photography. This picture was shot of Miss Chanda and Giovianna…she brought her camera in to show and share, she has a very special right hand as you can see! No hand, but she is able to use her elbow…she did an amazing job manipulating the “big camera” too, truly astonishing…and inspiring! She is one amazingly talented artist. We learned more from the students than they were taught : ) And in our opinion, students included…we need to have photography all year long!!
The Leach family… traveling to their home in Fort Mill, we love to travel for our clients!! Yes, they are like the “model family” gorgeous all the way around… as I would fall on my bisquits running thru the woods in those heels…lol there is always a lot of laughter with this family… and who does not love some cherry blossoms… spring is sure on its way….
A moment where there are no words to describe… shot by Dawn, Chanda Cares Charity was one of the few on earth to meet him. Our sweet angel baby Gideon Matthew. His life was short, but oh so significant. His little life touched so many hearts…and his momma with the strength and faith that only God could give. She is an inspiration to all.
