Desirae & Justin: Married

Congrats to Desirae and Justin who became Mr and Mrs Butler on April 11th! The wedding took place at the gorgeous Ballantyne Resort overlooking the golf course. It was absolutely beautiful and the bride looked stunning! After the ceremony there was a fabulous Tiffany's inspired reception complete with a candy bar! After the reception we got to meet up with Desirae and Justin in Uptown Charlotte to have a little photo shoot fun. The couple met while working for Bank of America, so of course we had to get some pictures!!

Congrats to both of you! Enjoy!

Happy Easter!!

I remember the days back when I use to go to sleep with curlers in my hair for church the next day. Me and my sisters would wake up early on Easter Sunday and put our robes and slippers on to go outside and hunt for Easter Eggs left by the Easter Bunny. While my memory of those days is not perfect, my parents were excellent at documenting Easter morning with the video camera. Last July for my birthday my dad gave me a copy of all of our home videos from the time I was born on DVD. It was so much fun watching me and my sisters grow up! The 3 things my family was REALLY good at capturing on video were: Christmas, opening birthday presents and Easter. We looked so cute in our little pjs running around trying to find all the eggs even though none of us were truly awake yet!

There's one video with my younger sister, who's probably about 2 or 3 at the time, just following us around with a dazed look on her face. She didn't quite get it yet. Then of course there's the year the Dad (aka Easter Bunny... and Santa) decided to hide the eggs in the FRONT yard! What a tricky little bunny :o) 

Wishing you a very Happy Easter!!

Where does one find inspiration? Photographers are always looking for it. I was wandering through various stores last week looking for creative ideas. In one store, a clerk asked if she could help me find something. I told her I was looking for inspiration and asked where they keep that. Wouldn't it be wonderful to walk into a store and look in the Inspiration aisle when you need it?
I did find some good ideas and we will be announcing some exciting new opportunities coming up soon.

I love spring! Today has been one of those wonderful spring Saturdays in Waxhaw. First off was the WVFD Easter Egg Hunt and BBQ. Then it was an hour nap on my lounge chair in the backyard. And now it's time to hang out with my Grandma :o)

Growing up in CA we have trees, but not nearly as many as here. This makes for a pretty week of blossoming trees, but that's about it. One of my favorite things about Spring time in the south are all of the different budding trees. Each week and new tree starts to blossom and it looks beautiful!!

The one downside to Spring in the south is missing out on all of the beautiful wildflowers that could be found on the side of the road in my hometown. These pictures were taken by my little sister last weekend. Isn't it beautiful?!!

Happy April Fool's Day!!

Today is the day. I thought about making up some crazy April Fool's prize or something, but then I thought that would just be too mean. Instead I've decided to share with you one of my (really my only) April Fool's Day prank. For being the only one, I'd have to say it was pretty good!!

About 5 years ago, my college roommates and I thought it'd be fun to play a prank on our teacher Newell. We tossed around a few ideas until this gem popped in our heads: Let's fill his entire office with thousands of sheets of crinkled up paper! So that's what we did. We got the other teachers in his office area to let us in and spent at least 2 hours crumpling and tossing paper. By the time we were done we'd crumpled 5,000 sheets of paper and stuffed it in and around the bookshelf, the trash can, the desk, the chairs, and even made a "golf pencil" out of paper for his little pencil rack! In the beginning of the extravaganza we were trying to toss paper over the 8 foot walls (it was like a tall cubicle with a locked door). Naturally, some of the paper got stuck :o) To top the whole thing off, we wrote a note saying Happy April Fool's and tied a nice little trash bag to the door handle.

Now Newell had gone out for dinner with one of the other teachers last night - the one who let us in Newell's office to be exact. Apparently at dinner Bradshaw couldn't keep from giggling just knowing what Newell would face the next day. The following morning, Newell was sitting in on yet another teacher's class. Newell tried to pull a prank on him and when he found out he said something similar to "Just wait Newell, you'll get yours!" Then as Newell arrived at his office a few hours later, he ran into Paul. Paul was sitting outside Newell's office with all of his teaching materials with him and said "I just want to see it before I go." Naturally Newell was intrigued at this point. According to him, his exact words were: "Oh..... my.... God!" For the next hour he got absolutely no work done. Teachers and staff from other campuses were calling to ask him about it as well as stopping by. The whole time he assumed it was the OTHER TEACHER!!! Until of course he arrived and informed Newell that it was 4 of his students. That was the end. He figured it out right away then :o)

We arrived a few hours after that only to find this picture attached to the door with the tagline "Weather forecast: Snow 3-5 feet!"

To this day his family members still know us as the students who trashed his office :o)
What about you? What's your best prank?
