Baby Lamb Minis

Raleigh Spring Lamb Mini Sessions

    Day two and three of Baby Lamb Minis just went so well! We managed to squeeze everything in before the “snow storm” which ended up being a non event, right? So many sweet little ones came to cuddle and love on baby Benjamin the lamb. Ericka definitely got a workout these two days because Benjamin learned how to run. We were laughing so hard we were crying. It was kind of hysterical. Sometimes we have too much fun at the minis. So much laughter, so many giggles, and so many memories made this past weekend. A huge thank you to everyone who came!

We do have a few more minis coming up – contact us for more info. Our Mommy + Me Minis are sold out, but we having a waiting list in case we can open up more days. We have one spot left for our Coastal minis and two spots left for our family minis.

A huge thanks to Winterpast Farm and Suzanna’s Antiques

The Swings

Fall Raleigh Sunset Baby Photography

I really try to stay on top of blogging but when the fall gets busy and crazy, and we have minis galore (so many fun minis in the fall!) blogging kind of gets pushed to the back so that editing and orders can be done! I just had to share this session, though. I couldn’t wait any longer. The cuteness is overwhelming, and this little one just loovvvvved the swings. Oh my, I love it. And the light here, is just overwhelming. You know I am a sucker for good light. I will follow it anywhere. And sometimes people look at me (even Ericka, the RKP stylist who owns her own business, Little Apple Styles) and second guesses my location choices. Like, Becky, there is no way this is going to look good. And I have to promise her and show her back of camera sneeks, and now she has drank the good light kool-aid. It is all about the light..So when you want to book a session with me and you second guess my time choices, just know it is in your own best interest. I want you to have the dreamiest pictures possible, and I just love that light…BFF.  If I could have best friend necklaces with good light, I would. ha! And that doesn’t mean I’m sad on cloudy days. Cloudy just opens up so many more possibilities for me…spots that wouldn’t have existed on a sunny day. Ok, so now that you have read enough about my love affair with good light, on to the photos + the amazing light I speak of.

Oh, and one more thing, and I promise I’ll stop chatting…(what my boys would say here) This little one wasn’t feeling quite well our first try, so we ended up meeting again. So these were taken over two different days.

A few portraits from day one before she just wasn’t feeling well and we all decided to call it a day..

Spring in February

It’s hard to believe the trees have been blooming so early this year….and this session, well, it was definitely an adventure! It was windy, especially for February. We ended up getting kicked out of one park (a park that previously didn’t have gates and a closing time all of a sudden did!) so we headed to another, found a spring tree and a bench, and everything ended up being so much fun. I first met this family at Sophie’s newborn portraits + have loved photographing them ever since. I can’t believe their little man is already one, (see his newborn portraits here) and such a cutie!

According to Mom..

What kind of feel were you thinking of for your session? Natural. We wanted to take advantage of the early spring and the fresh air. We always like a bit of rustic/vintage feel.

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one?

Mommy – Tracy – I’m an equine veterinarian and an exhausted working mom. I wouldn’t have it any other way:)
Daddy – John – Said he would never have kids and now is a devoted father whose kids have him wrapped around their little finger.
Sophie – Is hilarious. She loves to make people laugh and does so every day.
Jake – Always has a smile. His favorites are balls, climbing anything he can and eating EVERYTHING in site!

What was your favorite part of our session? Watching the kids laugh and giggle is always one my favorite part. Who doesn’t love seeing their kids smile?!? This was our 4th family session with Rebecca not including all the mini sessions we’ve done. I found her by luck shortly before my oldest daughter was born to do our newborn pictures. I feel like she’s been there for all our big family milestones and therefore a part of the family. We always feel relaxed and comfortable with her and nothing is forced. The pictures reflect everyone’s personality and our family dynamic perfectly. They are always amazing but also make me remember the fun we had taking them.

What’s your favorite family activity? Playing outside – doesn’t really matter where.

What was the weather like the day of your session? Eeeeek! That day was sunny and absolutely beautiful right up until 1 hour before our session when it got cloudy and super windy!!!

Tell me about the outfits you wore to the session. This session was to mark Jake’s first birthday so I first picked his shirt. The rest of the clothes were selected to compliment that.

What props did you bring and why? I brought a toy truck that belonged to my late uncle. Its a fun family heirloom
I also brought a balloon for Jake to hold but his older sister wouldn’t let him hold it…

What are some words of wisdom you have for other families preparing for family portraits? Wear clothes your comfortable in! Enjoy yourself and have fun. Don’t stress if the kids aren’t cooperating. Be flexible. Rebecca is amazing at capturing the happy moments.

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? I was definitely worried a bit about the windy weather and my hair, lol. We also found out 30 min before our session that the park we were going to closed at 5 which was the middle of our session. In the end none of it mattered. We just rolled with it and we got some beautiful photographs and some good memories.

Baby Lamb Minis

Winterpast Farm Wake Forest Photographer

Oh, this sweet lamb Benjamin at Winterpast Farm was such a dream to photograph. He was so calm + snuggly with the kids. We also had a sweet lamb last year named Charlie Brown. (you can see him here) The forecast was so iffy for Saturday…65% chance of rain went down to 30% and that afternoon, whew, nothing! On the way home, a few rain drops hit my car, but I’m thankful they stayed away during our sessions. Some little ones were a little apprehensive about the lamb. It is amazing how big these sweet lambs are, even at 13 days old. Benjamin the lamb had such a great time, he fell asleep halfway through the sessions. Those little ones wore him out! Oh, and I loved how Ericka styled these – just gorgeous! The flowers were just so pretty. The funny thing about the farm is all the animals that wanted to eat the flowers, too! We were constantly shooing them and some little ones may have gotten Mama Lamb (she was constantly letting us know that was her baby and she might also like a flower) or a sweet duck who was drinking from the flower buckets in their portrait! Thanks to everyone who came out – these were just so much fun! So excited about our Mommy & Me Minis + Our Spring Family Minis coming up soon! (Contact us for more info!)

Special thanks to our favorite Suzanna’s Antiques & the amazing Winterpast Farm

This session was really so quick. It may have felt longer to Mom because of course these girls were giggling and running everywhere and all over the place, but I felt like we blinked and this little one year old was ready for a nap. So I asked Mom if we could capture her sleeping since it really hadn’t been that long and oh my goodness, sleeping baby pictures, loooooove. (Sleeping baby photos are just cuteness overload, and this little one, oh she was just precious.)I was able to get some photos of just her big sister too, while she was putting herself to sleep. And so glad their sweet Mama jumped in for a few portraits! Loved photographing these beautiful girls – such a joy to capture this little one’s one year portraits. Oh, and her adorable ponytail, I think I took like 300 pictures of it because it was just that cute!

According to Mom…

What kind of feel were you thinking for your session? Modern and intimate. I really wanted to capture their personalities and have some timeless photos.

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one…

Alice Sophia – About to turn 6! loves her friends more than anything, tennis and gymnastics and her little sister
Juniper Charlotte – Just turned 1, LOVES her sister, giggles at everything her sister, our little Junebug
Zack (dad) who was at work at the time:(– AMAZING FATHER!
Jasmine

Did you enjoy your session? The girls had a great time! I loved when Alice asked to have June wear her sunglasses. The picture of me tickling Alice to make her laugh is probably my all time favorite photo of us.

What was the weather like the day of your session? Cloudy and rainy and COLD

Tell me about the outfits you wore to the session. We picked simple white, again to keep things timeless and simple. The lace dress June wore is one of my all time favorites that Alice wore when she was a baby.

What’s your favorite family activity? A walk to the park and visiting Grandparents! 

What was the best part of your session? The best part of the session was June obliging us with a nap for some very cute sleeping baby photos. I loved it because it was laid back, natural, the girls were really themselves, and it was easy.
