Raleigh Family Christmas Mini Session Photographer
Oh, Darling, Let’s Be Adventurers…
It is always fun to dream up a creative family shoot for clients, and this one was just so much fun. I’m not a huge camping fan, so this was the best way to camp, ha! (not camp….) I did work at a wilderness camp in 2003 and spent my summer in the woods, even hiked the Appalachian Trail. It was a stretch for me, but I survived. We did a lot of camping with my church youth group growing up. One time, I was in a tent with a friend or two, and it started pouring so badly, there was water everywhere and the tent just slid down the hill into the lake (with us in it). On another camping trip, and a friend and I gave up and slept in my brother’s explorer? expedition?…it was big. The rain was just soaking through our tent like crazy and we were soaked. I have had terrible snake encounters outside – not bit, thank goodness, but I did step on one a few minutes into a hike. Another one surprised jumped out at me from a rock. (And completely weird that in all the tall grass, etc. that I’m in for sessions, I haven’t seen a snake during a photo session yet) I probably shouldn’t have said that because, you know, now I’m going to see one. Ok, so I feel like I had to tell you all of this to say, that the airstream is my kind of camping. It was beautiful and even had a shower – pretty cool.
Boyce Farms has been a favorite for so many years, and the owners are just the best. We love, love, love this farm + loved being able to have the minis there again this year. It is the best farm, and the only place to get your Christmas tree!
Ericka and I spent a lot of time discussing + dreaming up this mini, and I cannot wait to show you all of the images. Previews are hard because I don’t want to give the whole thing away so clients are super excited when they see their gallery. Every single session went so well, Ericka tolerated my Christmas music, we sang the Trolls soundtrack, paddington made an appearance + some clients even got to witness Ericka’s amazing dance moves!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone who came! It was truly an adventure + so much fun.
