The Mayhew Family at McGill Rose Garden, Charlotte

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk through my garden forever.

Have I mentioned how much I love this sweet family?? After you've captured memories for someone a dozen times they really do become an extension of your own family. Little Hampton is a fireball of free will and beauty. Her momma, Brentlee is no different. They know what they want and go after it. John is forever steady and brilliant and always knows how to make his girls laugh. 

We tried out a space new to all of us this weekend at the McGill Rose Garden. We were pleasantly surprised by all the little nooks we were able to explore, even with a wedding being set up in the background. (Hamptyn of course always prefers the rocks no matter where we go). ;) 

Charlotte has all sorts of hidden gems like this and it's really becoming a home away from home for me. As I'm sitting here in this adorable little NoDa coffee shop, I can't help but look forward to finding many more. :) 

Seriously, even the sun dried flowers were beautiful... especially when paired next to this beauty.
