A little while back Adam and Stacy invited me in and allowed me to commandeer their home, re-arranging their things, bringing in some furniture of my own, and photograph their beautiful, precious, heavenly baby girl, Aubrey. What an easy going family, that was nothing but comfortable, lovely and exquisite to photograph.

During the photo shoot, which was primarily focused on Aubrey, the new addition to the family, big brother Bauer was always close by and always curious as to what his little sister was "saying." He was constantly asking, "Mommy, what is she saying now?" And then waited with a wide eyes for Stacy's translation, giggling at her creative responses. It was so curious to me that Bauer, truly believed that his mom and his little sister had some secret language together.

With no daughter, or any kids for that matter, of my own, my only reference for this is my own relationship with my mom. So many times I have stood in front of my mom and dad relaying a story when my dad pipes up to say, "Jacque, what is she saying now?" Mostly it was illegible to him because I was talking too fast (as I have heard many-a-father complain). But it was never too fast, too loud, too quiet, or too indecipherable for my mom, even the unspoken things.

One day, I am sure Bauer and Aubrey will have a language of their own as brother and sister. But today and for the rest of their lives Stacy and Aubrey have a connection all their own. Just between the two of them. I guess it's a mom and daughter thing.

LOVED the pictures. Your words made me cry.

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.
