Brianna | Raleigh Children's Photographer

You might remember Brianna from this post from last year. What a difference a year makes! It's like she's all grown up (but she doesn't seem to have the attitude I developed around that age)! Brianna is wearing a sweet little Matilda Jane dress in this awesome location. Take note of this spot because you'll be seeing it in my next post, which features the After the Wedding pictures of Brianna's mom, Tina, and Derek!

Tina and Derek Engagement | Raleigh Engagement Photographer

Tina and Derek are one of those couples that just oozes cool. And just when you think they can't get any cooler, you learn something new about them that somehow does make them even cooler. I loved the location for these shots. These were taken and edited back in October after they got engaged. They recently eloped in the Florida Keys but I was able to take some After the Wedding pictures, which I'll be posting soon!

Newborn Work in Omaha | Raleigh Newborn Photographer

Last week I flew to Omaha to work with and learn from the amazingly talented Kelley Ryden and Tracy Raver. We were able to play quite a bit and I'm thrilled with the shots we were able to get!

Nicholson Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

Little Wyatt was such an explorer! Thankfully, there was plenty of room to roam around at our location and there were even a few cows! I really enjoyed being with this lovely family. At one point, Wyatt even gave me a hug...and I melted : ) Thanks for such a sweet morning!

Spain Part II | Raleigh Fine Art & Travel Photographer

These are the rest of the Barcelona pictures. What a great city!

Quatre Gats (Cafe where Picasso used to hang out)

The next few pictures below are from the market on La Rambla. This is a vendor selling all kinds of eggs, including ostrich eggs.

Gummy candies. Oh, how I love you.

Photobucket

When in Spain, you have to have chocolate con churros. The hot chocolate is so thick that the spoon can sit on top of it without sinking. We were pleased to find spearmint leaves dipped in chocolate, too. Surprisingly satisfying : )

Barcelona had tons of great graffiti everywhere we went.

La Sagrada Familia. Nothing I can say could possibly do it justice. The only way to fathom this place is to go. It's straight out of Lord of the Rings. I just may live to see it's completion. Perhaps.

Looking down from one of the stairwells.

Photobucket

Not a technically great photo for many reasons, but it gives a glimpse into one of the stairwells. Most importantly, it features my sister : )

Photobucket

Yes, that really is one of the stairwells. No hand rails, by the way.

Park Guell--another Gaudi masterpiece.

Photobucket

View from Park Guell. These are often the kinds of shots I come away with when I ask someone to take my picture. At least it proves I was there! And squinting!

Photobucket

I loved this wall and the doors, so Joanna was forced to stand in front of it.

Photobucket

I should be able to finish out the trip with one more blog post soon!
