The Airstream

Raleigh Family Christmas Mini Session Photographer 

 

Oh, Darling, Let’s Be Adventurers…

It is always fun to dream up a creative family shoot for clients, and this one was just so much fun. I’m not a huge camping fan, so this was the best way to camp, ha! (not camp….) I did work at a wilderness camp in 2003 and spent my summer in the woods, even hiked the Appalachian Trail. It was a stretch for me, but I survived. We did a lot of camping with my church youth group growing up. One time, I was in a tent with a friend or two, and it started pouring so badly, there was water everywhere and the tent just slid down the hill into the lake (with us in it). On another camping trip, and a friend and I gave up and slept in my brother’s explorer? expedition?…it was big. The rain was just soaking through our tent like crazy and we were soaked. I have had terrible snake encounters outside – not bit, thank goodness, but I did step on one a few minutes into a hike. Another one surprised jumped out at me from a rock. (And completely weird that in all the tall grass, etc. that I’m in for sessions, I haven’t seen a snake during a photo session yet) I probably shouldn’t have said that because, you know, now I’m going to see one. Ok, so I feel like I had to tell you all of this to say, that the airstream is my kind of camping. It was beautiful and even had a shower – pretty cool.

Boyce Farms has been a favorite for so many years, and the owners are just the best. We love, love, love this farm + loved being able to have the minis there again this year. It is the best farm, and the only place to get your Christmas tree!

Ericka and I spent a lot of time discussing + dreaming up this mini, and I cannot wait to show you all of the images. Previews are hard because I don’t want to give the whole thing away so clients are super excited when they see their gallery. Every single session went so well, Ericka tolerated my Christmas music, we sang the Trolls soundtrack, paddington made an appearance + some clients even got to witness Ericka’s amazing dance moves!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone who came! It was truly an adventure + so much fun.

Little Blue Truck

Raleigh Fall Mini Sessions Photography

 

“Horn went ‘Beep!’

Engine purred.

Friendliest sounds

You ever heard.”

-from Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle

    It’s no secret Ericka and I love planning and creating styled minis for our clients. And I love the simplicity Ericka designed with the apple baskets and flowers. This one was just. so. PRETTY. We were so happy to have beautiful weather both days (yay for no rain!) These just went so smoothly, I think all the little ones just thought the truck was so much fun. The hilarious part was the apples….everyone wanted a snack during the session – ha! And those images are adorable, too! These minis take a lot of work – location scouting, finding private property, getting permission, finding the truck, prop shopping, and in the end, it’s so so worth it! These came together beautifully, and I love the color palette Ericka chose for the flowers. Everything was perfect. So many more to share soon, but super excited to post a preview. For more information on other fall minis – send me an e-mail (becky@rebeccakellerphotography.com) Thanks to everyone who came + made this such a fun weekend!

Weekday Morning Sweetness 

Raleigh Family Lifestyle Photos 

This was the second time I’ve photographed this sweet family in their home. Sessions at home are great because you can take your time getting ready, there’s no rushing out the door to get to a location, and you have everything you need at home. You’re not going to forget anything! It was such a sweet morning at home, and so fun to photograph both of their babies!

According to Mom..

What kind of feel did you want for your session? I just wanted a fun, loving session at our home of our new life as a family of 4.

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one. Jonathan is a fabulous daddy. He loves snuggles with his kids. Lillian (2) loves dressing up as a princess. Jack (6m) loves his big sister.

What was the weather like the day of the session? The morning started off cloudy but got sunny as the day went on.

What was the best part of your session? I loved just being together. Our lives are so crazy with travel, work, preschool and naps schedules. It was great just taking the time and making each other laugh and smile.

Tell me about the outfits you wore at the session. Jack decided he didn’t like his first outfit. Before we even took our first photo Jack threw up all over it. He changed immediately into outfit number 2.

What props did you bring and why? No props….just Becky and Jack’s monkey to entertain Lillian and make her laugh.

What’s your favorite family weekend activities? Saturday mornings are for long walks. We walk to get bagels and donuts! Then head out for a day of soccer practice and games.

Only a Million Degrees

Downtown Raleigh Family Photographer

Ok, it was a little hot the day of their session..maybe ridiculously hot, hello Summer! But these boys, they were troopers and had so much fun..I think they had no idea it was only a million degrees outside. I first met this sweet family when they were expecting their second baby boy + then got to photograph his newborn portraits, too. (Oh my goodness, you have to see their cat!) It was so fun to see them again and capture their baby at one. And look at him standing up – always such a cute thing to capture. I think we finished in about 45 minutes and ran to the car for air conditioning but the super cute portraits were worth it!

According to Mom…

What kind of feel were you thinking of for your session? Vintage, Modern, etc? A fun feel – something to keep the kids smiling through the session and capture their fun, happy selves.

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each person. Cyrus – 3yo – strong willed and full of energy
Kian – 1yo – very sweet, but also very stubborn

What was the weather like the day of your session? Hot!!!

What was the best part of your session? It was just fun to spend some time together with the kids.

What props did you bring and why? We brought Kian’s 1yr banner from his birthday party, just to capture it on film.

What are some words of wisdom that you have for other families preparing for a session? Don’t skip naps that day, and don’t stress too much about what the kids are wearing.

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? If so, what were the worries? Since evening sessions creep up to bedtime, I was worried the kids would meltdown – but they didn’t! And I was worried about handling the heat, but it wasn’t too bad – the kids didn’t seem to mind at all.

Happy First Birthday! 

Durham Lifestyle Baby Photographer 

It still amazes me every time someone emails me about one year portraits. How does time fly by so quickly and little newborns become one year olds? Happy First Birthday to this sweet girl! I first met these two at their maternity portraits over a year ago, and their newborn portraits at their loft – this Mama knows how to decorate. What a beautiful space + awesome location for walking distance to lots of fun stuff. Their baby girl, oh my goodness, was just so happy and full of personality for her one year portraits. She loved being outside and playing with her Mommy + Daddy. She giggled and giggled and was just so happy and then at the end was all of a sudden so tired. I love that we were able to capture her rubbing her eyes. So much cuteness!

According to Mom…

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one? Justin-He is a sweet nerdy, rule following, best dad!
Natosha-nurse and wild card
Camille-the best babe who is the best cuddlier but also full of attitude

Does your little one have any favorites? She loves tomatoes, cantaloupe, and watermelon. She also loves to dance around the house to almost any music but we listen to toni basil’s Mickey a lot and she loves it. My girl is another of her favorites. Cam has no time for books, she will not sit still for more than 1 minute.

What was your favorite part of the session? My favorite part of the session was how easy it was. I was so worried Camille would cry, not look at the camera, and be generally be misbehaved. But she was great and Becky made it easy for all 3 of us. It was fast and easy!

Tell me about the outfits that you wore to the session. I got my outfit for jcrew online. Jcrew is easy for me? I know exactly what Size I wear there, so I can online shop! Camille’s outfit was the most important and it’s from old navy. I want something the showed off her cute little legs and that she could move in. And justin just threw something on;)

What words of wisdom do you have for other moms preparing for a session? My only advice is to just relax, smile and don’t worry too much about what your little one will do. The pictures will be great no matter.

What has been your favorite gear during baby’s first year? We got a lot of use out of our boppy lounger, ergobaby carrier, advent soothie pacifiers, Aden and anais dream blankets (love), pack n play, and a good stroller.

Do you have any pets? How do they get along with your little one? Any cute stories?  We have a Cat named Aster and Camille loves her. She is always trying to chase her down. When she does get to pet her she rubs her head on her and giggles, every time! Aster is great with her too, you would think she would run but she usually sits fairly patiently and lets it happen.
