Uprooting a family and a business and moving 8,000 miles across the globe is ever easy. Moving closer to family makes it a little easier. Victoria is my oldest niece and she is starting to make me feel old! Our very first session after moving from Nairobi, Kenya to North Carolina was with Victoria and her handsome boyfriend Daniel.
Photographing couples in love is one of our favorite things to do and when the couple is as adorable as this one, well it just makes our job even more fun.
We did this session before Daniel left for Marine boot camp, so that Victoria would have something to help her get through the 12 long weeks of separation. Enjoy!
We started off the session at an antique store/lumberyard just outside of Highlands.
Then we went to a few of their favorite hangout places.
Of course the soon to be Marine wanted to incorporate his gun into the session and
Victoria loves her guitar so we thought they would make a great contrast.
We finished up at Kilwins, where Willie bought us all Hot Chocolate to get us warm again after a much chillier than anticipated evening.
