Chapel Hill Baby Photographer
Running Through the Garden
Let me tell you, this little one was just precious running around the UNC Arboretum. What a sweet session celebrating his first birthday. We got so many sweet images with his Mommy and Daddy! You can see his sweet little personality just shining through. It may have been a million degrees, thank you, August, but you wouldn’t know it by this little one’s smile.
According to Mom..
What kind of feel were you thinking for your session? For our session the main thing I wanted to focus was my family. I choose Chapel Hill as our backdrop and we took pictures in the arboretum on the Chapel Hill campus and the surrounding area. Grayson loves flowers so we were able to get some amazing shots with the flowers in the background and he even picked a few for pictures. The session was perfect.
Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one. My husband Matt and I are big Carolina fans, especially my husband which is why Chapel Hill was such a great backdrop for this session. My son Grayson is 13 months and he is full of energy and enthusiasm. Becky was able to capture so many of his unique and special expressions in this session. I was born and raised in Hillsborough and I grew up spending a great deal of time in Chapel Hill so it was fun to have our session there.
What was your favorite part of the session? My favorite part was seeing Grayson play with the flowers and Becky was able to catch some great shots of him at the perfect moment.
What’s your favorite family activity? Our current favorite activity is going to the pool. We all love the water, especially Grayson.
What was the weather like the day of your session? hot hot hot.
Tell me about the outfits you wore to the session – why you chose them, etc. We decided to go with a blue theme for our session. I purchased my blue dress from j.crew and Grayson wore a seersucker suit my Mom bought him for his birthday. My husband Matt wore a blue shirt.
What props did you bring and why? The only props we brought was Grayson’s lovey to keep him occupied if he got fussy and we did have to use it a few times.
What are some words of wisdom you have for other families preparing for a session? I think you should definitely use the style service. It helped out a great deal and our pictures turned out amazing. The stylist helped bring everything together.
Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? I was not worried because I felt like we were in good hands.
