Stone and marble may be durable, but even these hard surfaces cannot survive what we human beings as a species can survive: time and the touch of millions of hands and lips, touching, revering, eroding, forgetting. Funeral slabs are worn completely smooth, memorials are cracked and decaying, and some are even defaced in damnatio memoriae. We build, but still it is only temporary. Eventually hands and feet rub and erase, and we are only left to puzzle over fragments and faulty stories.
The London Eye is incredibly touristy in all the worst ways: shoulder-to-shoulder crowds, crying babies, a line out the door to restrooms, heat, overpriced bottles of Coke, and carnival attractions like street magicians and a carousel and exhibits like "Shrek's Big Adventure!" and "The London Dungeon (it's a SCREAM!)" and a very cramped aquarium.
A friend of mine has this gorgeous brick home on the market right now in Cary, NC and a week ago she asked me to help her with pictures for the listing. "Something better than cell phone pictures!" she asked, and I was thrilled to have the chance to try something totally new. Real estate photography has its own challenges and I really enjoyed playing with the light and experimenting with the shots and angles of this beautiful house. Check out the images and if you know someone shopping for a house in Cary share the listing link!
It's here - it's finally here! After such a long wait once again there is the weekend clash of titans, the relentless progression down a field, the glory in the lit up scoreboard. Football season is well underway and with it comes all the rabidity of fans fixated on screens over bowls of chicken wings.
Meghan, Chris, and kiddo Lawson are so hip and fun, and so when they asked for an urban family portrait session I knew we had to find a place just as cool as them. After a little bit of sugar from the cake smash we rounded up the troops in a fresh change of clothes for some pictures in downtown Raleigh.
Babies and cake, babies and cake! What can be sweeter? I was super excited to do the cake smash session for Meghan and Chris's cool kid Lawson (seriously, this kid is so cool). Check out the images today on the blog!
