This family. My heart. Tony and Caroline are seriously like family now, and we’ve gotten to see know them all the way back in 2016 for their engagement pictures. Joke was on us because their engagement pictures were actually maternity/husband and wife photos as these two secretly eloped and found out they were pregnant around the same time!! How great of a year is that?! We got to celebrate with them at their wedding in 2017 , and seeing them as parents to the cutest little Parker was the sweetest sight (see their wedding here). Fast forward to 2018 when Tony surprised Caroline with a shoot as a birthday gift for her (major husband points). We met them at sunrise (bless them) at the NC Museum of Art and Patrick and I kept repeating how much Parker had grown and how we couldn’t believe it (we’re going to be those old people reminiscing about how much every child has grown). We always make sure to try to grab the formal family photos first so that Parker and Tony and Caroline could take some time to interact together as a family. Parker is energetic and he had a blast exploring the wide space at the museum, with a parent close behind to monitor this fearless adventurer. Patrick was more than excited to explore with Parker while I stole Tony and Caroline away for some photos of just the two of them. Knowing this family is the greatest blessing to our lives and we look forward to seeing Parker through every exciting and beautiful transition.
