More than anything I walked away from being a part of this experience simply humbled to be allowed such an intimate perspective on this type of an event, and thankful to have witnessed something so exquisite and culturally unique.
Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.

I've been hearing about this fabulous vintage tandem bike for quite some time now, so it was particularly fun to shoot this session. Helen and Keith are not only some of the most creative and brilliant people that I know, but they are also proudly welcoming their first little one later this fall. It's been a big year for these two and these images make me happy... I hope they do the same for you.
Lots more to come from last week and musings about my crazy road trip....

As Maggie and I walked, talked and shot some fabulous photos... I was struck with the same thought that I am every time I get to hang out with a senior... this is such an amazing, exciting, ever changing stage of life. It is my deepest hope that these images help her to remember and cling to these perfect days. Girl, enjoy these final days as you say goodbye to high school and NC... because before you know it you'll be saying hello to college in Florida! Oh yes, and you are gorgeous girl. I feel compelled to state the obvious :)
The brand is a tribute to the romance of the southern preppy lifestyle. Besides their products, a visit to their website introduces you to a world where gentlemen lounge in bow ties and sockless loafers and attending horse races among other things, is considered a way of life. Everything about them is as they say "proper" and of course, preppy.
