Hanging with Ashlyn

I spent the last two days hanging out with the most adorable two year old redhead. I say hanging out as opposed to what her mom and dad call "babysitting" because she pretty much runs things. Lollipops after breakfast? Sure. Jumping on mom and dad's bed? Why, yes! And I couldn't help but snap some pics of her (sorry, your kids are free game to my camera when you invite me in as a babysitter). Before sharing, I just have to clear a few things up first. #1 - She was the one that wanted to stay in her pajamas all day. #2 - She is the one that talked me out of my boots and her into them...

Sheer preciousness.

for some reason posing required singing... love it!

on the bench her daddy built


she told her momma the story about the bubble on the monkey's head when she got home. :)

and then she started to get really excited and began to run around the yard...

...maybe a little too excited for her feet (or it could have been the hand-me-down crocs from Bella that she had to wear that were still a little too big that caused the tumble.)

no harm done. all is still swell.

hugs for mom.

Gosh! These are soooooo beautiful! Love the close ups of her cheeks. Amazing Carrie :)

Outstanding pics!! So glad to see that the tumble didn't cause her any stress. The pic of her tumble is incredible I love her hair blown back and her eyes squinted. The close ups of her face, precious cheeks and gorgeous eyes are awesome too. Capturing memories with photos is the best!!

These photos are so wonderful!! You captured the "REAL" Ashlyn! Don't worry about her tumbles, she lives for it and never cries. She is always telling me "Run Grammy Run" and we do HAHA!!

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.
