The farmer’s market was a super cool place with live music and a variety of food. We will definitely be back!

 

This was another picture playdate organized by my friend Allison of ALM Designs. (She just designed Owen’s 2nd birthday shirt and I am so excited to get it! She has a sneak peak of his birthday shirt on her Facebook page!) The mini sessions were a lot of fun and the weather held out until the last minute of our last session! Then, it started to rain! Allison brought a super cute tricycle that was a big hit with all of the little ones! We took these at Hagan-Stone Park in Pleasant Garden. (Send me an e-mail if you’re interested in hosting a portrait playdate – mini session pricing and the hostess gets a discount – rebeccakellerphotography@gmail.com) Mini sessions are shorter than a regular session (around 30 minutes) and include 5-7 or more pictures of your little one.

This week’s theme – Mothers.

One of my favorite times of the day is when Owen wakes up from his nap. He is so happy and just loves playing with his letters puzzle and his puppy. This puzzle is one of his absolutely favorite toys – he knows every letter of the alphabet and is content identifying the letters and their sounds and then figuring out the puzzle.  I have been meaning to capture this sweet time in the afternoon and finally picked up the camera. I am almost never in pictures with Owen simply because it is usually just me and him when I am taking pictures. Thankful that Michael captured this sweet moment. Truly a special Mother’s day gift – a memory with my son.

Don’t forget to capture your favorite times of the day – and don’t forget to get in the picture every once in a while! Happy Mother’s Day!

This week’s theme – Still LifeP I N this to pinterest

Taking a still life with a toddler and little puppy around is almost impossible. I love this picture because Charlie, our little maltese is in the background and the puppy toy is being pulled by Owen. The pots are still but the background is definitely not. The pots are our Mother’s Day gift for Owen’s grandmothers and great grandmothers.

I didn’t get too many pictures of this project. Painting with a toddler is pretty funny. He was covered in paint in about two seconds and so was I! I just kept laughing and then he would laugh and he just kept on painting. The pots turned out really cute, and I’m super excited to give them to the grandmothers.

This sweet family is waiting to find out if they are having a boy or a girl! Only a few more weeks left and Noah will find out if he is going to have a little brother or sister. This session was at Pullen Park, and the light was just beautiful. Noah just loved the boats and the carousel. It is such fun place, and we ended our session with a locopop from Pullen Place.
