When Camille's fiancé, a fellow co-worker and best SRO ever (I'm afraid what he'd do to me if I didn't throw that in there, haha!), contacted me about photos, I was happily surprised to find out that they were in the midst of blending two families full of kids together! They decided they wanted to do separate portrait sessions before one big family portrait session, so on a beautiful and sunny day at the end of June, I met Camille and her four kids, twins, Charles & Chandler, Celsey, and Peyton at the West Point at the Eno park in north Durham. These kids are awesome! Celsey & Peyton were so smiley and bright, telling me about what they love at school and about their sports, gymnastics and baseball, respectively. Celsey even stole my heart with her glittery mustache earrings! Charles & Chandler are die-hard baseball players, traveling all over the state to play a good game of one of America's favorite past times. These two, while similar, had two completely different favorite ball fields where they've played before: Charles loved playing in Charlotte while Chandler's was Wilson. And of course, like any great travel ball players, they've played at good ol' ECAP down the street from my old stomping grounds in Goldsboro! Camille + family -- y'all are such a fun bunch! You made a steamy N.C. summer afternoon into a great portrait session! Good luck with baseball, gymnastics and planning your big, new family!
Meet Avery. He is a very smart and quick-witted kid. He is quite awesome, as he recently found all the parts to a McDonald's Inspector Gadget toy. He also built his guitar for his senior project, plays varsity baseball, and the ukulele. Avery is quite the unique individual who has a bright future in front of him, hopefully as an engineer!
