Saturday I had the absolute honor of capturing two dear friends say, "I do!" They each had a little (well...not so little) surprise for each other. For Karen, Alex gifted her the most precious diamond necklace. For Alex, Karen gifted him a kayak...yup a kayak. How she pulled off that surprise, well, your guess is as good as mine. It was a beautiful day and great celebration of love. Here is a taste of the loveliness that was their day!!
It is such an honor to welcome these beautiful ladies to the CLP Family. Ashley is my incredible new Studio Manager, she will be your first point of contact and be there for you throughout your entire CLP experience...she is basically the most amazing human and you will love her. She also has over ten years experience as an interior designer and is available for complimentary in home art consultations making it now so easy to enjoy the images from your session throughout your home! WHAT?? I know...how amazing is she??!
Imagine that this image comes with a fabulous southern accent!

Her styling services range from searching your closet to doing the shopping for the whole ensemble and creating an overall theme that speaks to your unique story. She can do just the shoot or continue the design process and help you create the perfect holiday card/birth/wedding/engagement announcement/save the date. She is here to take your style to the next level!
This is Nicole with her ridiculously amazing family!
Well, well, here she is...the new site. I spent many hours culling through the thousands of images I have captured over the years and learned a great deal about myself as an artist. What struck me the most is how truly lucky I am to have worked with so many incredible humans. I mean, for REAL - all of you and all of your stories and all of your lives and all of your emotion and all of your creativity, you make me jump out of bed every morning excited to create! Annie Leibovitz states in her biography, "A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people." Preach, Annie!! Thank you all for allowing me to fall in love over and over again every single day!
To blog or not to blog, that has been a personal struggle of mine for...well, since the whole blog craze came about. I am not one for words; I tell stories through pictures. I understand the importance of a blog but I always felt it looming over me and instead of dealing with it I just rebelled and let my Facebook Fan Page take its place. Well, my loves, the times...they are a changin'. I will be attempting to make this the home of my new work and my thoughts - let's be honest, mostly my new work. I am excited to take this leap and hope you will enjoy the ride with me.
