It's wonderful when you get to see old clients/friends after a couple of years, to see where there lives together have taken them, to see them still just as happy as on their wedding day. It's incredible. It makes me feel as though I truly have the best job ever. That's how this session was. I haven't seen Katey and Matt since their wedding at The Umstead Hotel two years ago and it was just delightful to chat them up once again. And to meet this sweet little girl. She's perfect!

I first photographed Meeghan and her little boy back in 2012. She was a guest at one of my clients wedding and she was sitting there with her baby and they both looked so cute and happy when I snapped a photo of the two them (the couple gave them that photo as a gift too. sweet.) Later on she contacted me about photographing her baby's first year photos. I was thrilled because I hadn't had a baby session in a long time and they were such an adorable family. I am so thrilled that I got invited to photograph them again (seriously, this is the best flattery for me. I love when people like me enough to have me shoot them again). I got to go over for a visit and meet this sweet little girl. She is adorable. I even got to cuddle her up for a little while. That made my day.

Thank you Meeghan and Derek. You have an amazing family.

xoxo, becci

There is nothing like going back to a family less than a week after the welcome a new tiny person to their family. It was so wonderful to see everyone bonding and learning each others rhythms, cuddling, loving each other, and just enjoying being a family. Mostly, I just love babies. I love their tiny little fingers, their little ears, their soft hair... so I was thrilled when Jess called me back to come photograph the new little baby and her family. It is especially wonderful and incredibly flattering to have Jess of all people have me come. She is an incredibly talented photographer whose work I just love. You can go look at her work here. And not only is she talented, she's super sweet. I really love when I have clients who I can see being friends.
Oh, and p.s. She made the baby quilt. It's in the middle. Crafty.
