Addis Jemari + Pine State Flowers

What a fun morning it was photographing these sweet girls at Pine State Flowers in Durham for Addis Jemari. Addis Jemari is an awesome organization that helps orphans. (You can read all about it here) The bags and jewelry in this photoshoot can all be purchased on their website here. A lot of the products are new so they may still be working to get them up on the website. First of all, a huge thank you to Pine State Flowers for letting us use their charming shop. It it just beautiful, ya’ll. (Love it so so much!) What’s really neat about Pine State Flowers is that it is North Carolina’s first exclusively local flower shop. More than 95% of the flowers at the shop are grown in North Carolina. I also loved the unique flowers and plants they have in the shop. If you are looking for a gift, this is a perfect spot to pick up a plant in a beautiful pot. What’s also neat is this was a florist shop built in the 1930s. (You can read all about the history of the shop here, super cool!) I loved seeing the photos and reading the history on the wall of the shop. These three girls were just so sweet and helped us pull off this photoshoot flawlessly and quickly especially with so many products to photograph! I love finding creative locations and photoshoots just make my heart sing…Loved this one so much!

Summer Birthday

Cary One Year Family Photography

Cary One Year Family Photography 56,jpgP I N this to pinterest

This summer I got to photograph so many sweet families, and loved that I got to photograph this sweet boy’s one year portraits before his family moved from Raleigh. We got up early in the morning (Oh my, do I love the early morning light at this park, just so pretty!) And I love the steps, just a beautiful spot. The kiddos puppy was there, too, but he mostly hung out at the park instead of being photographed…photobombed a little bit, too. (See some super cuteness with their puppy during baby boy’s newborn portraits here) Because of the summer heat, this was a quick morning session. Love, love this summer session (and all things summer really) but I’m hoping for a little bit of fall this year. I feel like we always get a spring, but maybe not always fall. Sometimes it goes straight to cold. (Well, you know, cold in North Carolina, which is freezing to us) I need to start working on our fall bucket list soon, you know, things like apple cider, visiting a corn maze, pumpkin picking, leaf crafts..Ok, yes…fall, please come quickly! What would be on your fall bucket list?

And speaking of fall, wow. Our minis this year are going to be so amazingly cute! And if you have not booked one yet, we have just a little tiny amount of spots left, so if you want more info, contact us ASAP! We are going to try to do a few pop up minis, too, depending on if we can make it work! (So many fun ideas this fall! So excited!!!!)

Only Sleep

Cary Newborn Photography

Cary newborn photography 5.jpgP I N this to pinterest

 

Oh my, this sweet little boy just slept and slept during his entire newborn session. With a newborn, everyday can be so different and their schedules can be different so just never know what they are going to do…but this sweet little guy just stayed in dreamland the entire session. Love all these sweet images with his parents! Such a cutie!

According to Mom…

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? I thank God he was healthy and so perfect. I felt blessed to have my baby in my arms and my husband and family right next to us.

What was your favorite part of our session together? Becky made us feel very comfortable from the moment we met her when she arrived at our home. Getting direction from her was very helpful to be able to take pictures with our newborn without waking him up. Hehe.

How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? I fed him right before the shoot and during the shoot. Half way through.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you stressed or worried beforehand? I was nervous that he will get uncomfortable but it turn out great! He was very relaxed and helpful.

What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Don’t worry too much about it. Newborns sleep most of the day and they will cooperate. Most of the time is the adults that are nervous. Hehe. Also, Get a good swaddle blanket that will be fitted to the baby.

Was there a sentimental item in your nursery that we photographed? At the shoot we had this handmade rug my friend Angie created for our baby Daniel with his name. It was very sweet to have photos of it.cary newborn photography 8.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 38.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 8.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 58.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 008.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 008.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 778.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 908.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 1118.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 89.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 598.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 33348.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 0008.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 832.jpgP I N this to pinterestcary newborn photography 333338.jpgP I N this to pinterest

Good Ole Summertime

Raleigh Editorial Family Photography

The fact that it is now August is breaking my heart. Only 17 days of summer left for my boys, and I will miss my oldest so much when he goes back to school. What are your last summer plans? I feel like I need to squeeze in every last bit of summer the next few weeks. I loved these watermelon minis so so much because they just scream summer. (And I miss pretty sunny summer days, when, oh when is all this rain going to stop?!?) Watermelon, fourth of july and a blue truck. What more do you need? This little cutie was just so happy + laughed at Ericka and I for being so silly. Love all the sweet pictures of her with the watermelon!

Friday Favorites

I had to start off this post with talking about the big news for this week – Holiday Minis Booking! We have already sold out of many dates, so if you are thinking of getting on our calendar, contact us ASAP. It’s going to be such a fun fall, and I cannot wait!

So I’m not sure if they are open yet, or maybe really soon sometime in August, but I’m super excited to check out the Morgan Street Food Hall.

I love following the #debtfreecommunity hashtag on instagram, and my favorite follow lately is @nottodaytarget And if you follow the hashtag for #debtfreecommunity, there are so many inspiring stories and you just want to clear your amazon cart immediately.

Raleigh Christmas family photography 5.jpgP I N this to pinterest

So excited that one of my favorite bands in my younger days, Weekend Excursion, is probably having a concert soon according to their facebook page. Found out they actually had one in Raleigh earlier this year, and so so sad that I missed it.  This is a Greensboro band and I grew up loving their music. (I mean, that violin, though!)

So interesting things on netflix I have watched this week while editing – 1. Undiscovered Disney Parks. This has to be filmed in the early 2000s because of the paper fast passes. The fun thing about it is you get to see inside Club33. 2.Amazing Interiors. I haven’t finished watching this yet, but wow there are some intense houses. My husband’s Carolina room is nothing compared to this guy’s Cubs basement which is really like a full blown bar.

We’ve been working on a big project at our house over here, giving the boys’ playroom a big overhaul + planning a big lego table. I’m super excited about it and will post pics soon! Most of the overhaul is minimalizing. I feel like with kids + toys, it’s a constant struggle with the toys. My boys only play with Legos + Cars right now, so trying to donate what we can.
