It’s hard to put into words how special it is when past clients ask me to capture new milestones in their lives. I photographed Victoria and Ben’s wedding in 2012 (shortly after relocating from Germany to North Carolina), and it was an absolute pleasure! So when she emailed recently to tell me they were expecting and to invite me to High Point for a home session, I was delighted…and quite moved!
Victoria and Ben are a beautiful couple, with a beautiful home and growing family to match. They’re waiting to find out baby’s sex, and they’ve decided to keep name possibilities under wraps…difficult to do when you have as close-knit a family as them! I’ll never forget her “Big Fat Greek Wedding” day! It was such a joy to see them surrounded by loving, excited relatives! I could notice that their family dynamic is similar to a Brazilian family (like mine!) so I felt quite comfortable in the mix! Just before we left for the church ceremony, Victoria wrangled her relatives with a “Let’s Go! It’s time to get married!” I will never forget that. So sweet!
Doing a home session is a treat when the setting is as elegant as this one was. Victoria and Ben’s house is a mixture of contemporary and cozy, with graceful crown molding and lots of texture and personality. But I have to admit, my favorite, adorable little thing of all was puppy Moma. Ahh! What a doll! She is only allowed on the couch and bed on special occasions…I’m proud that my visit qualified, as you can see from the photos! I wish them all the best as they welcome their new addition in a few shorts weeks. Thank you from my heart for including me in your next chapter! <3
