Thursday throwback to April … what a lovely month! It began with an Easter parade in New Orleans’ French Quarter, birthday celebrations with my wonderful sister, crawfish, grandgirls, and I discovered my love for ranunculus — these gorgeous blooms that resemble something between a rose and a zinnia, but grow in a wild way similar to tulips after they’ve been in water for several days. Apparently, I love a beautiful mess. We ended the month in New England via Birmingham, Savannah and Hilton Head, where pansies and popcorn awaited us! Such a fun month … enjoy!
Thanks for coming along on this journey with me!
April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.

For those of you who have sessions with me, you know that it is a necessity to work the session around the best light. That typically means either early morning or early evening into dusk when the sun is at a slant, providing the most glorious and flattering glow. Most people choose the early evening option … not that I blame them! But not this family! And I love it! This is the second time I’ve photographed this family in as many years, and both times were early morning sessions. This was so great for so many reasons ….. the light, as I mentioned above, is just lovely, and we had the beach virtually to ourselves except for a few other early morning beach lovers. We had the opportunity to run around, play, have fun, and capture some really great moments. The boys have grown for sure, but still have the same handsome smiles I remembered. They were full of energy, a little mischievous, and full of love for each other. I mean, look at their happy faces!
We were done by 8:00 a.m. So I snuck back for a few minutes of solitude. Breathe in. Breathe out. Aaaaahhhhhh.
