Johnnie and I are practically best friends now. He may not realize it yet, of course, but it’s true! I celebrated with his parents at our Kernersville maternity session, we giggled together during his newborn session, and now he’s over a year old and now we’re celebrating the start of another summer with Kernersville family photos.
Randall led our mini caravan of diesel-powered cars winding down neighborhood roads so expertly I didn’t have time to question where he and Cassie were taking me back in the abandoned corners of K-Vegas. The dead end was anything but an end, though: the rolling fields, the abandoned tobacco barns, the delicious clouds waited for our laughing entourage.
And so, here they are: the country cutie mini farmer, the doting mother, the proud father.
Cassie and Randall and Johnnie. In a farmer’s field. On a startlingly hot North Carolina day.
