katie+adam+colin | chapel hill, nc

it was a friend of a friend kind of shoot.

i have a good friend named katie. i knew that a friend of hers, also named katie, lived in the piedmont with her husband and little boy. when i finally met katie's friend katie and her little family in chapel hill, it was very much a "i've heard so much about you" sort of afternoon.

the world shrunk a bit and i befriended three awesome new people.


katie and adam met at UNC, so our family/maternity session took place at their alma mater. they're adorable together.


colin was more interested in roaming the quad than posing for me (green space? or sitting in front of the camera? yeah, it's a no-brainer). but as long as we gave him plenty of opportunities to stretch his legs (and boy, can this kiddo run), he was okay with a few posed photos.


i never leave a family shoot without getting a few pictures of the couple. sometimes it's the first time they're been photographed together since their wedding. so while katie and adam took their turn in front of the camera, colin entertained himself by zooming big trucks in the botanical garden.


katie's pregnant with another little boy, who they're naming rhett (i'm loving how outside the box their names are!). colin is going to have so much fun with a little brother.
