And A High Five at the End

Downtown Raleigh One Year Baby Photography 

This little one was full of so many smiles – he just started giggling as soon as he got out of the car at the park. Sometimes babies can be distracted when outside and just fascinated by all the noises and sounds, but not this little one. He was just so happy playing with his Mommy and Daddy at the park. What a cutie he is and so many memories made during his one year portraits. I love the variety we could get at this location and how adorable was he holding up his finger that he was one. We had ot keep an eye on the weather that day, and we were sure if it was going to pour during the session. It was a dark and cloudy evening, but thank goodness, the rain stayed away. For some reason, sometimes when I’m at the park, it’s like we are magnets for rain. This little one was just so adorable, such a fun session…and the high five at the end, sooo cute!

So Many Giggles

One Year Baby Photographer Raleigh 

I always feel like I blink after their newborn sessions when they turn one. It’s really, like how can this even be possible? And this little one, we were photographing him close to his bedtime so of course, this session was super quick. With everything going on, and how quick this session was, he still managed to give me so many smiles and giggles. So, so, so cute! What I love about sessions is that it is a time to play and make memories..to have fun together as a family and also capture that in the photos.

We went to see Captain Underpants with friends today, and well, it was everything you dreamed a boys movie could be. (Some theaters have discounts on Tuesdays, which is awesome)It was actually really funny, and I could see how Owen’s age would love it, but also a little much on the potty talk, of course. My girl ears were like ewwwww. Owen has been devouring the chapter books so, of course, I have put every single one on hold at the library in the hopes that one day he will be able to read more. (it is kind of amazing how many girl series books there are vs. boys. Just not that much great stuff. If you have any suggestions for other series, I would love to hear them) I grew up going to the movies a lot..I mean, my Mama loves movies. Since she loved them, of course, I was the kid who never wanted to watch tv or movies. I never watched Saved by the Bell and remember a little bit of Full House, but mostly I would rather be doing something else. Even in college, I never really wanted to sit around and watch movies. It still baffles Michael when something comes on tv, and he’s like remember this? Um no. I owned like 7 dvds in college/after college and I married a man who has oodles and oodles of them. My favorite movies growing up (I can remember all of them because there were so few) were Anne of Green Gables, Never Been Kissed, My Best Friend’s Wedding(i watched this so many times) 10 Things I Hate About You, and The Wedding Singer. There were more, I’m sure, but these are the ones I can remember. Who else has old chick flicks they remember + want to share? Now that I spent so much time sitting on the couch editing for my job, of course I am now watching netflix and movies. Too funny! Michael still can’t believe it some days. Ok, enough of my rambling about Captain Underpants + movies..on to the one year cuteness!

Mommy and Me Raleigh Styled Mini Session Photography 

Spring can be a little tricky for our Mommy and Me sessions because sometimes in April it just rains and pours. We did have to reschedule our original date, but we ended up with two gorgeous evenings for our Mommy and Me minis. I can’t wait to share so much of the cuteness from these. This year we did invite Grandmas too, and it was so sweet to be able to photograph the three generations together. This sweet little one had lots of smiles for the swing and for her Mama and Grandma. (Of course, she loves the swings! See more here)

We offer styled mini sessions several times during the year and will be releasing our fall dates soon. If you want to sign up for our newsletter, click here. All of our styled mini sessions are styled by Ericka of Little Apple Styles and we work together to find unique locations and themes for our clients. This Mommy and Me was at Circa34 barn – such a beautiful spot!

Mommy and Me Minis Previews

Raleigh Mothers Day Photography 

Every session dreamed up with Little Apple Styles is just so much fun. I first went to Circa34 for one of their really great barn sales + the owners are just so nice. I immediately fell in love with the barn and was thrilled that where the light hit the barn was just perfect for evening sessions. Ericka and I met out there so she could see everything + she also fell in love instantly. That swing, that adorable garden shed, and of course, the barn + the steps. Love, love, love. There were other spots we could have used but just not enough time – ha! Ericka worked so hard on the flowers + the swing, and wow, just love all of the images of these sweet mamas with their babies.

We offer mini sessions styled by Little Apple Styles several times during the year. Sign up for our e-mail list for more information here. We have one spot left for our Coastal Minis July 4th week, and several fun minis planned for the fall.

Special Thanks to Circa34 Barn! We love your venue so so much!

Another Session With Luna

Baby Portraits Raleigh, NC

As a new driver..I must have been sixteen or seventeen, I got in my car after school one day to drive like three miles down the street. As soon as I got on the road, the skies opened up and the craziest storm came through. It was just horrible. I felt almost like I was in the wizard of Oz and farm animals were going to start flying by soon. It was just that bad. I finally made it safely to my Dad’s store but the main road I had to cross in all of that mess was just scary because I couldn’t see a thing. Ok, so after that whole traumatic day, wind + storms has not been my BFF. Like, I cannot stand the wind storms. And we really barely get anything bad here. (I could not live anywhere with tornado sirens.) So of course, the news has me stressing today + trying not to watch the weather. The wind already has the creepy howl. ugh. Hoping we do not have to huddle in the bathroom tonight + these scary storms stay away. (If it is storming, you will always find me hiding in the bathroom)

So I have to tell you, this family has the sweetest puppy named Luna. She will just steal your heart. I know Garrett is going to love growing up with her + having their own “Henry and Mudge”adventures. (My boys lovvve reading Henry and Mudge, especially Harrison, who has started asking for his own big dog.) This Mama is so creative + crafty and their house is just decorated so amazing! Such a sweet family – loved photographing this sweet baby boy – cannot even believe he is one. I got such a kick out of his sweet little personality!

According to Mom…

What kind of feel were you thinking for your session? real, everyday, silly and fun!

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

Luna- our English Lab, she’s 10 years old and the most laid back doggy there is, she’s always been an old soul.
Luke– Dada, Computer geek and outdoor enthusiast…a real Mr. fix-it both technologically and home improvement…ha ha ha!
Patti- Mommy, former elementary educator and antique enthusiast…LOVES a good DIY project!!!!\
Garrett– aka “G” for short, one year old, loves to tell stories with his hands (in baby talk) ha ha ha, also an outdoor enthusiast, and feels that sleep is overrated! ha!

What was the weather like the day of your session? March is always a gamble…ha ha ha… the week before our session we had snow…and our day was luckily 55 and sunny!!!! Thank GOODNESS!

What was the best part of your session? Trying to get Garrett‘s attention was REALLY hard…and trying to get him to smile while looking in the direction of the camera was EVEN harder, so Luke was throwing a soccer ball up and down over Beck’s head…which worked so well, that during our family shots we all had genuine smiles watching Becky trying not to knock herself on the head while throwing the ball up and down, and taking our photos!!!! Too funny!

Tell me about the outfits you wore to the shoot. Garrett wore a teal oxford from Carters that made his strawberry hair color and his blue eyes pop. His jeans wear Cat and Jack from Target. They are great for crawling active little ones. Garrett doesn’t walk by himself yet, but he was wearing baby Tom’s shoes, that are perfect for practicing!
Luke is a t- shirt and jeans kind of guy, so he wore a pail yellow and grey patterned banana republic polo shirt with jeans.
Patti wore a lace top from Anthropology, her favorite worn out jean jacket that she got from her bff years ago, and black jeans.
We wanted to keep our clothing real, casual, and easy, with a hint of Springtime.

What props did you bring and why? we brought a cream blanket for a family “pile on” shot
A crate- for Garrett to sit on or stand up with
A baby photo from our newborn session with Becky, to compare how much he’s grown (we’d like to do this every year!)
A few toys to try to get Garrett‘s attention.

What words of wisdom do you have for other families preparing for a session? Just roll with it…if you are having fun, and being yourself it will show through in the pictures…if you are stressed or trying to get your little one to do/be anyone other than who they are…the pictures won’t be as good. Just laugh and enjoy! They may not smile in every photo, but that’s ok!

What’s your favorite family weekend activities? Taking a walk with the family, letting Garrett show off new skills in his playroom, enjoying the outdoors (weather permitting) Garrett loves to swing!

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? Only about the temp being too cold…we didn’t want to wear big coats or hats for our pictures:)
