Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! I hope you guys are enjoying this amazing day full of sunshine and love. I have been eagerly awaiting this day to blog about a very fun ABP session I had in honor of Saint Valentine. The beautiful mom, Mary Kathryn, and her equally beautiful little lady, Mary Knowles, wanted to do a session so we could create some Valentine’s Day cards. Was I up for the fun? Oh you know it! Even more so when they told me they wanted to do some photos at a cupcake shop they live near!!!!

Meet the stars of my Valentine’s Day shoot!

After some fun in at their house we went to the cupcake shop. Oh and the fun continued!

Beautiful and sweet what more can you ask for?

Thank you sweet girls for all the fun! And a big thank you to Gigi’s cupcake shop for allowing us to come in and play! I hope everyone has a very special day and spreads lots of Valentine’s Day love and cheer.

Do you guys remember back to how beautiful the colors where this fall? With all the cold and bleakness of this years winter I thought it would be fun to look back at one of my favorite fall sessions jam packed with fun and the beautiful Chapel Hill colors!

Meet Miss Mia!

Miss Mia was so so sweet sharing hugs, crackers, and even teaching me a little sign language!

Thank you Miss Mia for sharing such a beautiful morning with me. I can’t wait to see you guys again soon!

“Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.”
― Oprah Winfrey

The past two months have been so wonderful as I have had the honor to photograph so many amazing newborn sessions! There is something so special about coming into a families home and photographing this new bond between mom, dad, and baby. It reminds me of this quote and I try to stop, enjoy the moment, and savor the joy and love between them all.

Here is one of my special new friends, James.




My beautiful new mom and dad…

Oh sweet baby James I can’t wait to see you again for our three month session!

Is it bad to celebrate a 13 month birthday just as much as a 12 month celebration!

2011 has been off to a great start! I have already had so many wonderful sessions with my ABP family (which added so many new sweet babies in December and January). I am hoping to catch up on blogging some of my favorite 2010 sessions as well as the fun I am having in the new year. I still have to share some memories from Lila’s first birthday, so many fun times to look back on and enjoy. I hope you guys are all still celebrating the fresh start 2011 brings! Cheers!

Cheers and love from the Byrds!
