One Hundred Degrees

Raleigh Maternity Photography

How do you photograph maternity portraits in one hundred degrees? Quickly, very quickly! Remember the heat wave we had in August that was just ridiculous? We were originally scheduled for an evening session, but decided that was just crazy and met super early one morning. We got out of the car, sweated through the whole thing, but we got it done before their baby brother was born! (His newborn portraits will be on the blog ASAP!) Loved getting to photograph this sweet family before he was born, and glad we were able to do it early before the heat was ridiculous. Also, these two are rockstars for getting these two sweet boys up early, dressed and at the session ready to go!

According to Mom…

What was your favorite part of the session, and why did you pick the location? My favorite part of the session was how laid back and simple it was. I picked a field because I love the natural elements in photography and I loved all the greenery in the background.

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? The only thing I was worried about was how my kids would do being in the heat and how my hair would look. :). Becky is always so good about helping the kiddos and shooting fast that it wasn’t an issue.

College Sweethearts

Wake Forest Maternity Photography 

It’s always nice to meet before your newborn portraits and hang out, because you know, life with a newborn can be kind of hectic. Maternity portraits are perfect for that, and it was so great to get to know this sweet couple. They were so incredibly sweet together, and I can’t wait to find out if they are having a boy or a girl! So many fun maternity sessions the past few weeks, I can’t wait to meet all these babies!

According to Mom…

What was your favorite part of the session and why did you pick the location? I loved the natural field and the white fence; it reminds me of Kentucky horse country. (where I’m from.)

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? Of course, the outfit always causes several second guesses, but Becky made the actual shoot pretty carefree.

How would you describe your perfect Saturday together? Any favorite restaurants? We are pretty simple: we love to stroll around and eat good food; on a good day we might take a bike ride out to a favorite place in the country. Favorites in Durham include Scratch bakery, the Parlour for ice cream, and Luna for a great meal.

How did you meet, and where was your first date? We met when we were placed in the same college freshman orientation group: classic, I know. The first date was a movie, School of Rock; I think I made him listen to my favorite musical theater cd, so that was a win.

Do you have any pets? Yes, Bodie the golden retriever. He is very cute and very manipulative; luckily manipulation generally just concludes with him being allowed on the couch to cuddle.

What is your favorite tv shows you watch together? We like The Americans, but it is rather intense. Lately, I can sometimes get him to dial into the Great British Baking Show. That one is just so pleasant.Wake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4959P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4960P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4961P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4962P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4963P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4964P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4965P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4966P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4967P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4968P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4969P I N this to pinterestWake Forest Maternity Photography 976_4970P I N this to pinterest

Baby Brother Coming Soon

Maternity Mommy Me Photography Raleigh

Our 2017 Mommy and Me Minis was the first time Ericka and I met these two, and just how sweet are they together? Our Mommy and Me Minis are 15 minutes long and we try to have fun yet move everyone through quickly so we can get as many mini images as possible. These two just had so much fun together and you can just tell the special bond they have. I know they are so excited about a baby brother coming soon! You can see more from our styled Mommy and Me Minis with Little Apple Styles here. I have only gotten to share a few of them so far!

So I had a session recently where we were discussing problems with glasses. My prescription hasn’t changed in three years, and I am not the easiest on my glasses. So, I have a few different pairs, and a pair of prescription sunglasses + then contacts. If I’m at a session, I’m usually wearing contacts because it’s just easier and they won’t fall off my face. I have a super old pair of glasses that is missing one side that goes over your ear and then I have a newish pair that are a little bit more decent for going out so I don’t usually wear these as much at home. (I am always losing my glasses in the house. I take them off to do something and then have no clue where they ended up or if someone walked off with them) So, I came up with a solution for my oldest pair that’s missing a side…a pencil. Yes – my pencil glasses. They are amazing. You just tape a pencil to the side and voila. I think I showed up at Ericka’s house once for a meeting and she was like what in the world crying. Michael still laughs at me all the time – I’m like geez, I’ve been wearing these forever…how is it still funny? Ok, so in case anyone else is in need of extra glasses laying around, the pencil, try it. I may be brave enough one day to post a picture of me in my pencil glasses. Oh, and P.S. it’s even better if your hair is up – to stick the pencil in your hair. Just sayin’.

Oh, and I’m totally that person wearing their prescription sunglasses in the store without realizing it, because, you know, I can still see! Ok, enough with the glasses talk and more of the adorableness of these two!

Joy

Cary Raleigh Newborn Photographer

I seriously love photographing the joy of siblings together. It is the sweetest thing when they are so excited about the new baby and want to show them to me and tell me all about them. (I’ll be honest, this does not happen every session:)This big brother was absolutely adorable with his baby brother, and overall just loved being with his Mommy + his Papa, too. I photographed his newborn portraits a few years ago, and was so happy when I heard from them again. (You can see their maternity portraits here)

I know most of the memories Owen will have of the first days of having a brother are from photographs and videos but he loves, loves, loves, watching the video of holding his brother for the first time. What a special day that was for him, and it is kind of amazing how he can remember some of the details from that day and from the first few weeks of having a brother. Siblings have a special bond, and I love photographing that in the early days of newborn sessions. It’s just so special.

Today is one of those rainy days..looks like tomorrow might be a little rainy, too! A few rainy day ideas if you just need to get out of the house…Go to the library! Looking around can occupy them forever + there’s also story time for the little ones. It is also the best day to take out playdoh.  Yes, it gets everywhere + is disastrous but it keeps them occupied for like ever. (and really more time than that) You could also make this Kid approved snack mix + pop in a movie. There is always jumping in the puddles – also super fun.This Firework Salt Painting also looks super cute with July 4th right around the corner. Enjoy the rain – I always love editing on rainy days or watching a movie sipping a yummy calming tea.

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!
