Those Spring Trees

Raleigh Family Photography

If you saw my last post, you’d know I get so happy when the pretty Spring trees starting blooming. (That pretty tree was in a different location) The only thing is, in North Carolina, our pretty Spring trees bloom when it’s cold. Cold, cold, cold. It wasn’t too bad the day of this session, but many my session last night was just a little bit freezing. (And it’s supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow and 80s on Thursday, what, what!) I might be a little bit excited about this! So many babies were just born and I’m photographing a lot of sweet newborns in the next week, too! Super excited about all the babies being born in the next few months!

I’ve photographed this sweet family several times, and they are just so much fun. And sweet baby brother was turning one, so we had to take some portraits to document this sweet time. Love that there was one spring tree we could capture, too.

Soda Shoppe Minis 

Raleigh Family Photography

One thing I love about S and T’s Soda Shoppe is all the beautiful antiques they have collected and have on display at the restaurant. A lot of time and thought went into the restaurant, and everywhere you look, there is another fun antique. If you are an antique lover, it is definitely worth the trip to Pittsboro. (You can read more about S and T’s in an Our State Magazine article here, and there are some more pictures of the antiques, too!)

This made me a little nostalgic about places I went as a kid that were special to me. Yum Yum of Greensboro is the best place for ice cream and a hotdog. It’s an 112 year old business, and last year there was an car accident that forced it to close for a few weeks. Everyone went into panic mode, but they were able to get everything fixed and reopened. This also made me think a little bit about what special places am I taking my kiddos + the memories we are making. (And they are definitely fans of S and T’s Soda Shoppe + the strawberry milkshake! My boys lovvvve strawberry.)

Our mini sessions are ten minute long usually for just the kids sessions, (sometime we have family sessions, too!) and these two giggled all the way through their session. We had to stay right on time for these, no wiggle room, and Ericka and I always do our best to go as fast as possible. (The outfits on these two, oh my, ADORBS! I love the Soda Shoppe minis so much!)

S and T’s Soda Shoppe Minis

Raleigh Family Photographer

S and TP I N this to pinterest

This was one of those minis where we didn’t have a lot of extra time planning ahead, and I was so impressed how the Mamas were able to get wardrobe together in such a short amount of time. (See more of our S and T’s Soda Shoppe Valentine Minis here) Their dresses and his little vest with the bowtie were perfect. Ericka and I went to the Soda Shoppe beforehand..and I may have gone three times. (my boys were so in love with the place..so many strawberry milkshakes and banana splits!) That banana split was pretty amazing looking! I think I might just have to go back and try it ha! I have mostly gotten the strawberry milkshake because my four year old loves everything strawberry and the milkshakes are so huge that you can split them. (And now as I’m typing this, I now reallly want some ice cream. Good thing I am too tired to go anywhere)

The styled minis are so much fun to plan from start to finish. We have quite a few Spring/Summer minis planned, including our Coastal minis. Most of our minis are almost sold out, so if you are interested in a Spring/Summer styled mini in 2018, contact us ASAP. So many fun sessions planned for 2018. Sometimes we repeat a mini, but we also like to throw in some unique ones like this super fun Soda Shoppe Mini. S and T’s is such a great place and you can read more about their history on their website here.

Let’s Go to The Shoppe

Raleigh Mini Session Photographer

One of the best parts of S and T’s Soda Shoppe is the music. (I love this song…..so kinda where I got the title of this post from) I grew up driving around in my daddy’s big truck listening to oldies so I just love them so much…and I can probably tell you all the words to any oldies songs. Of course, we had to take some pictures with the beautiful jukebox at S and T’s. And when you are there, you get to listen to the music so totally adds to the authenticity of the Shoppe. One thing I love about these images is how much I love them in color and in black and white. The Soda Shoppe vintage look is so pretty in black and white!

Can we just talk for a minute about how cute this Mama dressed her little ones? We just could not stand the cuteness when they got there. And their hair, amazing! Love every single image of these three! And the fact that she threw their outfits together within a week was equally impressive. (You can see all the new releases from this adorable clothing line here) Can we also talk about the ice cream and milkshakes we had during the shoot? I was so impressed at the kids being so patient and I am still shocked that no one tried to take a bite at all during the mini sessions! This was our last mini session of the morning and Ericka was so amazing at keeping us on schedule.  Sometimes we can kind of relax and not stress about time, but this was one of those days where we didn’t have even an inch of wiggle room and had to stay right on schedule. I can not stress about the time schedule as much sometimes and Ericka will make sure everything is running smoothly. Of course, she is awesome.

Christmas All Year Long

Raleigh Airstream Photography

Last night I finally watched the When Calls the Heart 2017 Christmas special. (I found it on the you tube app on the tv) So I mean, why not keep celebrating all year long! There’s still so much cuteness to share from our 2017 Holiday minis. (And I had just finished season 4 of When Calls the Heart, so now I just have to wait for season 5, ha!) Everytime I come to the end of a show, whether I liked it or not, it’s sad, because I have to find something else to watch when I edit. Sometimes Michael laughs at me because the show may just be really really boring but I don’t want to go through the effort of finding another one, ha, and I’m invested in the story enough. Like when I watched Lost. The beginning was great, but the more I kept watching and it turned into sci-fi, it was like ahhhhhhh. And Michael’s like WHY! Why are you still watching this?! Because I might as well stick to the end at this point and it’s something to watch while I edit and I don’t have to figure out something else to watch. Because, when I start trying to find a new show, I will watch the first episodes of many before I commit, and I just don’t like to spend the time on that mess. Don’t you just love hearing about my tv habits?

I just love these three – so sweet together and always so much fun to photograph. They’ve been to enough minis to know that they are super quick, they get fun props, and that Ericka and I will act as crazy as possible to make them laugh. Their mama also always picks out the prettiest clothes for them (Just wait until you see their Valentine’s outfits!!! More this week on that!)
