Henry + Catherine 2015

It’s a gift to me to photograph my friends’ children. I wasn’t there at Henry’s birth, but I’ve been around for Catherine. Fingers crossed that I’ll get to take their prom pictures.

TBT: The first race

Running The Middle Half with Lesli was special, not only because it was held in the city where we met, but also because I credit her with getting me into running races. She ran her first half marathon in 2006 and I was so inspired by it that I wanted to do the same thing.

She joined me for my first (her second) and together we ran the Country Music Half Marathon in Nashville on April 28, 2007. Had Lesli not tested her own will to run 13.1 miles, I’m not sure I would have.

Gotta love the picture quality from an old Samsung flip phone:

Sherrod family photo shoot

Last week I drove to Lake Junaluska to take photos of one of my favorite families. Jimmy was ordained in the United Methodist Church and, though I didn’t go to the ceremony, I captures moments in the aftermath when the family of four had some down time.

Cuteness abounds in these tiny faces! It’s a privilege to document their little lives from the beginning. (Click on the photos for larger versions.)
