Hopefulness / Mandy's Maternity Teaser

If I happened to be the type of person that based my decisions on general outlook as opposed to hopefulness I never would have made it to my maternity photo shoot with Mandy yesterday afternoon. The weather appeared to be completely uncooperative based on the hour-by-hour report and my own observation. And even if we happened to find a small window of partly cloudy skies nestled in-between isolated and/or scattered thunderstorms (what is the difference between those two, anyways?) the question was, would the sun even make an appearance for our late afternoon shoot? Never-the-less, hopeful me cleaned up and readied my photo equipment loaded up the car and drove 30 minutes north in the sprinkling rain to Mandy's parents place on the Highlands and Polk County line. Just as I arrived the sprinkling ceased and the sun made it's way around to blessing us with it's sweet, warm presence. And Mandy, Stephen, myself and the glorious late afternoon sun had ourselves a lovely little hour together. Hopefulness paid off, I'd say.



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.
