All of me loves all of you ~ Eric & Cody Wedding ~ Hickory, North Carolina Wedding Photographer

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, ohoh’ ~ John Legend

Their love is undeniable

Their family, amazing

I wish you both nothing but a lifetime of smiles, laughs, and happy tears of joy

You are amazing Mellisa. I know I tell you often. These are BEAUTIFUL!!!! Cody, you look amazing!!!!

This has gotta be the good life ~ A birth story ~ Baby Gabe ~ Hickory, North Carolina Birth Photographer

I cry

Every. Single. Time.

Watching  a woman give all she has to give life is one of the most amazing miracles I will ever have the pleasure of witnessing, let alone photograph

Like all 2nd time mommas, we wonder if we could ever love a 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th child as much as we love our first.

Something happens the moment they place your baby on your exhausted chest

Your heart explodes

It opens up to depths you didn’t even know existed

A space that was saved for them

Ultimately, you fall in love again

Then you fall in love with your 1st all over again witnessing the love, inquisitive little being they become.

It’s a blessing

A blessing not all get

A blessing to be remembered.

Happy Birth Day Gabe

Unbelievable moments captured! I wish I had several of these around the childbirth education class room. Ahhhh my heart is melting.

Inside & Out: No matter what she is wearing, she is beautiful ~ Cody Engagement Session ~ Hickory, North Carolina Engagement Photographer

Anyone that knows Cody

Knows how unbelievably beautiful she is

Not only on the outside

But the inside

Her grace, car for others, and the love she has for her family resinates to my soul

Last night I had the pleasure of photographing her and Eric’s wedding

Love surrounded the event

Sneak peeks to come soon, but until then, enjoy her gorgeous bridal portraits
