When Mrs. Cato called us, I knew right away this was a special family with big dreams and a heart for their family. However, I had no idea how incredible this experience would be! Her vision for a beautiful family beach session to create memories for her growing family resulted in an memorable experience for everyone. Mr. Cato was so gracious and I loved that he was just as much a part of the memories, a kind and patient father and attentive husband. Little R was dashing (in both ways, ha!). We thoroughly enjoyed photographing and playing with him as he dipped his toes into the ocean for the first time – he loved it! It was said he didn’t want to return to Greensboro by the end of their vacation – somebody get him a surfboard!
Nick and I are very much looking forward to meeting the newest Cato (any day now!) and humbled to be a part of such an important milestone in the Cato’s lives. Many thanks to this wonderful family!
