Simplicity… | Fayetteville NC Wedding Photographer

…a while ago I felt this urge in my heart…I was anxious, part of me seemed to be missing…a year and a half had gone by and it was about time for me  to go and visit my country. I needed to spend some time with my family and friends…this is how I find my balance, I feed my soul and I find strength to follow my dreams…

I’m from a little town by the mountains in Brazil, called Itatiaia. This is the place I grew up…where I climbed trees, rode my bike, had mud fights and a blessed childhood. Simplicity is the word that sums up everything I need and cherish. ♥

Love, Carol. 🙂


My dad is retired from the Brazilian Army and now he has lots of jobs around the house. My mom keeps him busy! Now she wants to grow some vegetables and this is my dad’s new job! 🙂

One of my favorites fruits, fruta-do-conde!

Before I got in Brazil I mentioned to my mom that I needed to buy some kitchen towels. When I got there she was sewing some for me! awwwwwww! She made one for each day of the week, written in Portuguese and English! ♥

I suggested a family picture on Mother’s Day. I set my camera on the top of a whole bunch of books, I asked them if they where ready for me to set the timer and run…and I saw it coming!!! They couldn’t stop laughing!!! I wish I was in the picture, but I was laughing behind the camera!!!

And here is the one we got after a few tries! The one with the cap is my nephew (my brother’s son) and who I love more than words can say!
