The Humphrey Family

It's another one... another cousin of mine and her precious family. Bianca and I are just five months apart in age and were practically inseparable growing up. Inseparable because we hung out all day everyday in the sandbox, in the play-house (when we weren't almost burning it down), choreographing tricks on the swing-set, pouting at nap-time while our older cousins got to swim, etc. And inseparable because we got in a knock-down-drag-out fight at least once everyday (which sometimes involved slapping. If you haven't been able to guess it that was my M.O.). We don't do that much anymore (unless it is in a game of "touch" football, and that was not really fighting just a little over-zealous competitiveness that ended in a tackle, no slapping). Bianca and I were roommates in Atlanta when she meet her now husband Sean. A few years later they were married at sunset on a beautiful lake in Sebring and another year and a half down the road they had their absolutely precious boy, Blayne. We now live a couple states away from each other, but this girl and her family... well, I love them and miss them whole a lot. (*tear*)

We had quite the time traipsing around the quiet Camp Sparta camp site on Lake Huckleberry in Sebring just before sunset to get these photos. Enjoy!


About Caroline

I decided my destiny was to be an artist at age five when I won an honorable mention in a art competition in kindergarten. Ever since then I have been following a dream that has manifested itself in a variety of rewarding and delightful ways. I have practiced in the field of graphic design for over 8 years and recently acquired my Masters in Graphic Design at NC State University in Raleigh, NC (check out my design portfolio by clicking here if you like). But a passion that has stuck with me ever since I got my hands on my first Nikon camera in my undergraduate art education at Florida State University is photography. The instruction I received there was but a seed in what would develop over the next years of my life. Recently I have begun photographing people in their celebrations of life and could not feel any more blessed to be a part of capturing those memories.

About This Blog

A great american writer once wrote, "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day." EB White penned the thoughts of my own heart. One part of me is a graphic designer working to challenge the world, seeking out problems and striving to create avenues for change. The other part is seeking out the beauties of the world and working to capture them in our memories forever through photography. This is what you will find here. Me enjoying the world. I have been truly fortunate to photograph such incredible people at truly beautiful moments in life. I can only hope that the images I've collected will forever keep alive those thoughts and emotions that swelled in their hearts and minds that day.
