Baby Isaac, you are loved.

Spent my saturday morning with this adorable family photographing their newest member, baby Isaac.  What a joy, and possibly one of the sweetest newborns I have met in awhile. The love for this little guy filled the house. Welcome to the world!

In case you haven't heard about it, the Barn at Valhalla is a sweet little venue just miles from downtown Chapel Hill.  I attended an open house this past Sunday and was blown away at all the improvements they have made since my last visit.  The new upstairs bridal suite is AMAZING.  Completely remodeled by pottery barn, the rooms are luxe and inviting (honestly, I wanted to move in!).  In addition, I met some wonderful people, ate some delicious food, and drank several glasses of incredible vino.  This place is top notch.  Sweet, rustic, beautiful, yet totally unpretentious- this is the perfect location for just about any event.  Barbara Rich manages the barn and is as warm and friendly as they come.  Additionally, Amy Wurster is a terrific resource for wedding planning and flowers too!
