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!

So Much Sunshine

Raleigh Maternity Portrait Photography

As soon as I met these two, they were just so warm and friendly, and just so sweet together. You can tell he just loves her so so much + photographing that is just awesomeness. These two were so easygoing and fun, and their puppy, so much cuteness. Sassy, their sweet puppy, just loved exploring the field and running around and made the session super fun. And, so exciting that yesterday was this sweet Mama’s first Mother’s Day. They just had their baby boy, and I cannot wait to meet him. I know they are over the moon! I love the blue balloons that this Mama brought to their session, so much fun.

So I also want to point out the GORGEOUS light in the session. I get really giddy about pretty light, and this session definitely had it! We plan our sessions to try to get the best and most beautiful light, but you really never know what the weather will be like. We can look at the hourly forecast, but it really changes every minute. I was so happy that we ended up with awesome light the day of their maternity portraits in Raleigh. Beautiful Mama, her sweet husband + puppy, gorgeous light on top of that = a perfect session!

One Month To Go

Raleigh Wildflowers Maternity Family Photographer

So one of my friends was chatting about coconut oil and how great it is for your hair. So I tried it a few days ago. I was thinking, oh this is going to help my hair so much. I was actually cooking with coconut oil when the great idea to slather it all over my hair popped into my brain. If you google it, of course, everyone will tell you how wonderful coconut oil is for your hair. So I was like oh, this is great. I’ll do a face mask and then coconut oil in my hair and that’s a super pampering evening. My hair looked like a sopping mess of oil for like ever. I am not even kidding. No one on the wonderful coconut oil is so good for you blogs explained that you might have oily nasty hair for forever. I tried every “remedy’ out there which includes a gallon of dry shampoo, castille soap, and I was about to put eggs in my hair. I was a bit skeptical on that one, but after round six of castille soap, and dry shampoo, there was hope. All this being said, I am not in the coconut oil for your hair bandwagon. So if you were thinking about it, make sure you block out a week of washing your hair and not seeing anyone and probably adding everything back in with all the shampoo and soap to get the oil out. All of this to save everyone else out there from coconut oil drama.And if I photographed your family with oily hair this week, I apologize. At least the oil smells good!

All of that being said, I got to photograph this sweet family a couple of weeks ago. I first met them when they were expecting their first little boy, and was so excited to see them again! We had a gorgeous afternoon, gorgeous light + some beautiful blooms! This little one kept us on our toes and was full of smiles for his family portraits. They only have one month to go until their sweet little one is born! So exciting!
