He’s a Fireman.

21 06 2009

My brother started as an Explorer with the WF Police Dept when he was in high school… but some people ( including my mama) convinced him to try the WF Fire Dept Junior Volunteer Program. He reluctantly did. And fell in love. After three years of volunteering, Jonathan entered a grueling Recruit Academy with the Wake Forest Fire Department in January and just graduated with an average of 95 (correct me if I am wrong.) Friday night we were fortunate enough to make it to his graduation and hear the chiefs and captains sing the praises of the nine graduates. I was hoping we would make it, and since Cana arrived early, we did! Our Uncle Chuck and cousin Gary, also Firefighters, drove all Thursday night from Florida to be here for this special ceremony. Jonathan was so honored and the three have a new bond. Jonathan will be stationed on the Ladder truck starting next week. IMG_6725x

Jonathan, we can’t picture you doing anything else as your main career. We are so proud of your accomplishments!

A Day with Darcy

22 12 2008

Here’s the lovely Darcy–we took a trek around Wake Forest a few weeks ago to snap a few shots. It was only a little chilly (not like today–high of 35 F) and we chatted it up the WHOLE time. Darcy is an awesome and affordable chiropractor, so if you need one– check out http://drdanechiro.com.

Chelsea, Class of 2009

29 11 2008

A few weeks ago I go to meet Chelsea– an awesome, intelligent, creative and fashionable gal who’s going to be graduating this year! She was a blast to not only hang out with, but to shoot! She rocked it. I love it when clients love to do something “different” and that’s definitely what we did… check out her slideshow HERE.

Chelsea is also into photography… so I snapped a few of her in action.

Amber. Amberlea. Amberchovy.

19 11 2008

This is Amber. She is a wonderful friend and I love her dearly. Believe it or not, I used to teach her Spanish!  Then two years ago she was in our wedding! And she totally graduated college before me. Stinker. Anyway, we share an affinity for nice things, great food, yummy coffee, and now, photography!  In the spring, she will be headed to serve two years overseas in Milano! And there is a slight possibility we will join her in a year!  So anyway– here she is in all her loveliness!img_0484x
