Sydnie

Last week, we trekked to New Orleans to have Thanksgiving with Renee's family. Our niece, Sydnie, is growing up fast and we couldn't stand the thought of missing out on seeing her. In one week, we got to do Thanksgiving, Christmas, her birthday (she turns 2 in January) and took tons of photos. Here are some of our favorites. It's impossible to take a bad shot of her -she's so adorable!

Classic Sydnie...

simply Sydnie...

Shelby and Jay

Shelby and Jay are newly engaged, and new to Greensboro, so they needed to share some views of their new hometown (and show off the ring!) with their relatives back in Tennessee. So they asked us to take a walk around downtown and get some sots of them to send back to Nashville. They were lots of fun, and here are some of our favorites. Thanks guys, see you again soon!

not sure of the question, but we can see the answer...




love Shelby's eyes in this one...

Katie and Sean

We took a ride up to Katie and Sean's favorite town, Blowing Rock, the other week for their engagement session. We walked around their favorite park and around the cute downtown. Thanks guys, it was worth the trip!

Ashley and Kurt, the wedding

All good things must come to and end, and wedding season is no exception for us. This wedding is the last Carolina wedding in 2008 for us... but no worries, we have 20 booked so far for next year, starting January 24. The blogging might slow down a bit, but we'll still be sharing engagement sessions, family portraits, etc. with you!
But what a way to finish off the year! Ashley and Kurt's wedding was absolutely gorgeous, from the Centenary Methodist Church to Forsyth Country Club, everything was beautiful!
