I am so far behind on my blogging that it is now Amy’s due date with Barrett (Bear). He has apparently decided that hibernating is awesome and he doesn’t want to come out yet. I think he missed the memo that we all are dying to meet him. Amy and Nate are awesome and hysterical. I had so much fun with these two. We laughed, cut up, and had a blast. It was a typical photoshoot with me, nothing short of dramatic haha. I got attacked by cobwebs while trying to climb up in the rafters of an old barn (because that’s a totally normal thing to do right?), Amy got stuck in a giant pile of sawdust, and Nate got sawdust thrown in his face! Oh, and lets not forget my flat tire that in turn blew up in my poor husbands face while Amy, Nate, and I were sneaking on to a golf course (the things we do to get the good shot! Sheesh!) Needless to say this was a fun shoot. Stay tuned because any day now I will be posting pictures of the adorable Bear. As soon as he decides to come out of hibernation that is! 🙂 <3Bri

This little precious angel totally stole my heart. She is so sweet and cute beyond words. Her parents went all out for this party. It was so awesome and I think the only thing missing was perhaps a petting zoo. I hope everyone else had as much fun at Leela’s party as I did. I can’t wait to watch this little sweetheart grow up!

This is the second time I’ve gotten to photograph Madison and Mallory, but this time Robert decided to join us too. These were so much fun to shoot. Madison reminds me so much of Hailey, such a Daddy’s girl, and clearly thinks he hung the moon. Exactly as it should be 🙂 Sorry, I am so late in getting these all up. I’m finally catching up on some blog post! 🙂 Enjoy, and can’t wait to see you guys again. It’s always fun! 🙂 <3Bri

So, obviously anyone who knows me knows that I am a “horse girl”. Give me a beautiful, sweet model and her equally gorgeous ponies (and a couple precious puppies too) and I am in camera heaven. Melissa is just gorgeous, and has awesome taste in clothes too- her outfits were perfect!!!! We were a bit concerned about the weather, and had to incorporate some benadryl into the day- but everything held off just brilliantly and made for some epic shots. Hope you guys enjoy these too! I can’t wait to do pictures with this crew again! 🙂

I’ve known Nina for a long time, we went to school together. It was so nice to get to catch up with her and meet her super cool husband, Robert, and their adorable little boy Cameron. He is such a sweet and precious little guy. I could just cuddle him all day long! Oh, and Robert has a thing for fast, gorgeous cars. So, I also got to take pictures of his gorgeous mustang too. Be still my heart. I hope you guys enjoys these as much as I did taking them. Nina and Robert, thanks for having me out to take pictures of your beautiful family. Can’t wait to do it again! <3Bri

If you remember, a few weeks back I posted about my husband fundraising for the Walk For Lupus event here in Fayetteville, NC. (See that post here: https://captivatephotographync.wordpress.com/2012/09/07/2012-walk-for-lupus/) This past weekend we went to the event. Kevin was able to reach his goal of $500.00 with the help of the amazing people who donated. This was the first time we have ever been to an event like this and we didn’t really know what to expect. Let me just tell you, it was amazing. As I walked with all the other people who were all there to support this cause, to support ME, and everyone else out there who suffers from this awful disease I found myself fighting back tears on more than one occasion. Not because I was sad or upset, but because I was just so overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed by how awesome the event was as a whole, I was overwhelmed by the number of people who were there supporting this, and most of all- I was overwhelmed by my incredible husband. Not only did he decide to do this and raise the money on his own, but he reached his goal, and as I hung back walking behind him with our daughter on his shoulders (the entire mile btw) I was just overwhelmed by how incredibly blessed I am to have someone as amazing as him standing by my side as we go through this journey together. Everyone had these stickers on their backs that said who they were walking for. Some said a friend, some said a family member, some said “Me”. The ones that tore me up the most were the ones that said “In memory of…..”. My beautiful little girl wore the most adorable little shirt with a family picture on it and said “I’m walking for my mommy” on the back, on the front she decorated it herself (Floodgates wide open when I saw this btw) and all I could think when I saw the “In memory of…” stickers was what if the day ever came that my daughter had that on her sticker. But- enough of that nonsense- I’m not going ANYWHERE (except to bed soon :-P) for a long long long time. Sorry everyone! 😛 Now- back to the event. We walked a mile around downtown historic Fayetteville past restaurants and other local businesses in a giant wall of purple and butterflies. It was awesome, especially to see people stopping to support us, offering encouragement, and some that even joined in walking with us. Amazing. After the walk we had some super yummy food and cupcakes and had some entertainment by way of a band, some young girls from a local dance studio doing some demonstrations for us and a DJ getting everyone out dancing to “The Wobble”, “Cupid Shuffle” and other catchy dance type songs. It was a blast to just hang out with everyone there and watch the entertainment. Hailey loved watching the girls dance and said “their spinning makes me dizzy!” haha….so precious. All in all, it was a fantastic day and I was so glad to be a part of it. Next year we are going to raise WAY more money and start fundraising even earlier (so lookout everyone). I’m already looking forward to next year’s event. Again- thank you to everyone who helped us reach our goal, and thank you to everyone who put on this event, and everyone else who walked and participated, and most of all, thank you to my husband, Kevin. I don’t know where I would be without you and I am so blessed to have you by my side. Thanks again everyone! I am attaching a few of the shots I took so everyone can see how awesome it was. See everyone next year! <3Bri

I only just met this family and I adore them. Laura and David are amazing. They have so much going on in their lives and they make it seem so effortless. I don’t know how they do it, but I really think I need to take some lessons from them. Oh- did I mention they have 3 beautiful daughters and Laura is 31 weeks pregnant, with twins. How is that for amazing? They both work full time jobs too. How about now? Yeah- thought so.
Their daughters are the coolest girls. They all have their own totally different personalities, but they are so sweet and kind and beautiful. All 3 of them are just gorgeous. Dave is seriously going to have his hands full. Hannah, Kiera, and Annabelle are my newest bff’s. One day soon they are going to come out and ride the horses some. I can’t wait. These girls are awesome.
Somewhere around Veteran’s Day this beautiful family is growing by 4 little feet. Dave is getting a little bit of testosterone to help balance out all the lovely Hudson ladies, but there is also going to be another beautiful lady coming into this family. That’s right, a girl and a boy. I am so excited to meet little Jack and Molly. I can only imagine how precious these little babies are going to be if they look anything like the rest of their family. I don’t think these guys are capable of anything but gorgeous. Stay tuned to the blog for pictures of these beautiful little babies when they get here. I can promise you those pictures will be nothing short of epic!
I hope you all enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed shooting them. And thank you SO much for having me out to your lovely home for an afternoon of pictures. I can’t wait to do it again. (And, I’ll be glad to take Goliath off your hands anytime you like! hehe) <3BRI
