Ketan Turns One!

Remember that airplane trip to Tampa I wrote about a few posts back? It was for my one and only god son's first b-day and baptism weekend and I thought I would share some pics from the truly adorable and memorable weekend...

The party, which had a sports theme, was a real crowd pleaser! Guests enjoyed everything from concession stand inspired food and candy with unique sporty names, to a giant sports themed bounce house, to a b-day boy sporting a custom made FSU jersey with the No. 1 along with the his name on the back, to a "photo zone" with a life sized vintage baseball card cut out where they could take home their own baseball card sized instant pic of themselves. And as the beautiful Florida day wound down we found ourselves sitting outside watching football in the car port. A truly fun day.

Detail of invite illustrated and designed by... yours truly.















Happy Birthday, Ketan!

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.
