Two months ago (though I cannot believe it was that long ago), I took a trip to photograph my cousin's wedding*. I'll take a break from designing her wedding album to share something else from that trip.
When I photographed one of my other cousin's weddings a few years ago, I photographed at my aunt and uncle's property. People often ask me where that amazing location is, and if I can take them there. I loved that home most of my upbringing, and actually did some of my early portrait "work" with my cousins when I was a kid in the woods and front porch.
When they told me they bought a home "in town," I have to admit, I was a little devastated. They kept telling my mom that when I came to see it, I'd love it, I was doubtful to say the least. But then... I got there and my jaw hit the floor.
So let's venture away from portraits for a little while, and I'll give you a tour of the parts of this simply amazing civil war era farmhouse that have already been or have started their restoration. If only you could see the starting point on some of this, the transformation would be simply mind blowing! My aunt and uncle have a gift, and since it isn't in a magazine (yet), I figure I'll put it on my blog.
*the top photo on that post shows me and my second shooter both pregnant, but also noteworthy is that she is having her baby... like...right now. Crazy! I, however, am not.
