Watermelon + Trucks

I have love, love, loved photographing this sweet family since this baby boy was born. He just has the happiest sweetest personality and loves his Mama so much. He was just so cute with the truck and loved the watermelon, too. Such sweetness!

Posting all of these Watermelon Minis with the truck is reminding me about the phase where Harrison was obsessed with Truck Tunes,, Truck Tunes 2,and don’t forget, Truck Tunes 3. I could take him anywhere because truck tunes made him so happy. I remember one dentist appt I had and he just happily watched and listened to truck tunes. He has now traded his truck fascination for Lightning McQueen. It’s pretty much everything race cars over here. It’s funny how quickly their interests change and they get involved in something else.

And lastly, speaking of mini sessions, we are still finalizing everything for fall because it’s such a big endeaver. But soon, super soon!!! Stay tuned!

Friday Favorites

This has been a busy week of editing, planning, and scheduling. Ericka and I are finalizing everything for fall, tracking down places + props and working on a lot behind the scenes.

A few favorites from this week…

The In My Feelings Challenge. I started watching one on facebook which led to a million and now I can’t get the song out of my head, ha! The Will Smith video is probably the best (see here)

My hair is oily in my scalp and then super dry. Especially during the summer. I tried Aveda’s Dry Remedy  this week and it’s absolutely amazing. Looooove it.

Ebay for toys. So my son is one of the biggest lego builders on the planet. He loves reading the magazine, visiting the Lego Store (we were just here two days ago during our last apple camp trip, nothing is new) and spends hours building and rebuilding. One of the things about lego is they stop selling sets and then you can’t get them. He’s currently all about The LEGO NINJAGO Movie + all things Lego Ninjago. So I introduced him to finding sets to buy with his allowance on ebay, which is amazing. You have to hunt, but you can find discontinued sets or even regular sets someone has opened and put together and then taken back apart for so much cheaper than buying new at the store. He now loves spending his one hour of ipad time on ebay. Love it.

My sister in law brought these  to the beach a few weeks ago, and my boys brought them home after a shopping trip with their Mimi. What a cool summer toy at the beach. They are super cute – see a video of them here.

The Tanger Outlets in Mebane. I am still driving food back and forth for my dad every week from the amazing Lemon Tree in Wake Forest. He is doing awesome. He’s recovered really well from his surgery + he is driving and back to work. Just eating a low sodium diet can be tough and Stacey from The Lemon Tree really works with the diet to make amazing meals. My mom and I have been trying to meet to make the drive a little easier since I pick it up at 2pm on Thursdays which can be tough driving around Raleigh’s crazy traffic. Yesterday on the way home, I had to take 147 to go around traffic to 540, then got off on 70 to Westgate to Leesville to Norwood…ha…all to avoid as much 540 as possible. Thankful I married Michael with his amazing map brain so I knew about all of these alternate routes. All that to say we met at Tanger this week and I was pretty amazed at the outlets. I feel like they’ve added a lot of great stores.

Piper’s Tavern’s Brunch. We tried their brunch Sunday and I thought it was really reasonable and delicious.

Sharing images from the beach because I’m already ready to go back. I heart summer + will be so sad when it ends! Harrison had a fun time splashing in the ocean and playing in the sand before I took these – ha!

It’s Thursday, which means one more day until Friday + the weekend! Who has big plans this weekend? My next big adventure is editing all of the Sunflower Minis! (See a few previews here) It’s been a busy spring/summer with all of the minis we had the first part of the year, and today Ericka and I have our big fall planning meeting. We have so many fun ideas, so today is where we narrow it down and finalize everything. (So excited!) We are going to have some new minis this fall, so sign up for the newsletter or join our facebook group to be the first to hear about everything!

We were so excited to see this sweet family again for our Family Minis at The Little Herb House. Those pigtails…the cuteness, I can’t even. I first met them at their maternity portraits, and it’s been really fun to watch her grow. Such a cutie!

Watermelon Minis

Raleigh Family Child Photography

    Watermelon on a hot summer day is the best, and we had so much fun with these minis. (See more of our minis here) Sometimes the weather can be unpredictable on hot summer evenings, but we were blessed with perfect weather for these. Watermelon is a summer favorite. What are some of your favorite summer activities? One of the things I LOVE about summer is the flexibility of not having a school schedule. I can finish a session, pick up the boys and run to a movie. Also, not having to stress out about bedtime so much. Some of our favorite summer things include bunch o balloons. (These are genius! Not having to tie water balloons!) bubbles, of course, miniature golf, sandcastles, waterparks, swimming, collecting seashells, baseball games, game nights (I am the reigning Clue champion) Summer is the best! After summer, it gets really busy around here in the fall with so many fun family sessions + minis. (Ericka and I have are big meeting tomorrow morning to finalize everything – yay!)

The Little Herb House

We rarely have to reschedule minis, but our family minis had to be moved around this year due to weather. Sometimes Spring just brings those days of terrible rain + storms. (Looks like today has a 50% chance of lots of yucky weather! Take your raincoat and umbrella just in case!) Rescheduling can be kind of tricky when using venues + rentals. The day we were able to reschedule was absolutely gorgeous – one of those just really pretty amazing summer evenings. And we had so much fun at The Little Herb House. The grounds are just breathtaking, and there are so many fun spots to photograph, so we just kept going and moving. And this sweet family knows how to have fun + be silly, so we were able to take a lot of sweet photographs of them very quickly. It’s also hard to believe their sweet baby girl is already a year. I feel like I just took their family newborn portraits!

And chatting about minis,Ericka and I always try to move quickly at our minis to give you the most amount of pictures possible. We are finalizing dates for fall minis *this week* (So excited!) Dates will go out to our facebook group + then our e-mail list first, so if you haven’t signed up, you can here.
