The Dempsey Family

Another post for Throwback Thursday... err... now turned almost Tuesday.

Five months ago I posted a teaser from the last shoot that I did in 2011. I visited the Dempsey family in their South Tampa home just before the New Year to capture those precious details of their brand new family, complete with a tiny newborn baby girl. I marveled over the newness of things and the road they had ahead of them as well as the road ahead of a lot of us in the coming year. It was my "resolution" post for 2012 (and if you would like to reminisce you can check it out by clicking here.) The continuation of the story from that day five months ago is a two part post.

We begin with Part One: The Dempsey Family


Melissa, glowing, greeted me on the steps of their South Tampa home with a baby bundled in her arms.

The evidence of Christmas, still fresh in their home.

I couldn't resist capturing these tiny baby boots, a gift from dad to Sienna.

Part Two coming later this week.


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.
