Let’s Go to The Shoppe

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.

S and T’s Soda Shoppe

Raleigh Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions

 

So I’m probably going to go back and share each and every one of these sessions on the blog because I love them so much! This was a bucket list of mine..one of those sessions Ericka and I have talked about for forever…and we were just so so happy and thankful that we got to make it happen this year. First of all, if you have not been to S and T’s Soda Shoppe in Pittsboro, just go ahead and take your kids. You will lovvvve it. It’s worth the drive if you are in Raleigh, and they also have fun antique stores and a super cute toy store in town. There’s also a woodworking school next to the Soda Shoppe. (Pretty much, I heart Pittsboro) We were able to use a very limited amount of time at the Soda Shoppe and so we only had a limited number of spots. And we soaked up every single second that we were there. Ericka and I were running around like crazy, whirling the kids through a fun time at the Soda Shoppe with ice cream. And some of us stayed for lunch. S and T has been featured in Our State Magazine and is just such a neat spot if you are an antique (or ice cream, ahem!) lover. If you were a fan of the Rathskeller in Chapel Hill, they also serve some famous things from their menu including The Gambler and famous Bowl of Cheese.  They are open from Tuesday to Saturday, and you can read over all of their history here. If you go, make sure you get ice cream for dessert, either  a milkshake or banana split (yum!) Harrison absolutely loved the Soda Shoppe and keeps asking when we are going back!

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!)

Soda Shoppe

Raleigh Valentines Mini Session Photography

 

Little Apple Styles and I team up for a lot of fun styled mini sessions, and this weekend we have one spot left for our 2018 Limited Edition Valentine’s Day Minis. We are super excited about the Soda Shoppe theme! This is something that Ericka and I have talked about for forever and were thrilled when we could finally make it happen. And we just loooooove the soda shoppe. The owners collect antiques so everything is just beautiful and love, love, love. Ericka and I always love adding some vintage to our mini sessions. (And you know I’m a huge fan of Suzanna’s Antiques) Plus, who can resist a strawberry milkshake with whipped cream and a cherry on top? I took Harrison there a few weekends ago, and of course, he loved it. I may or may not have tried the milkshake, it was delish! We only have one spot left, so if you are interested in the spot, send us an e-mail as soon as possible (becky@rebeccakellerphotography.com) or you can fill out the contact form here. What do our mini sessions include? Wardrobe advice from Ericka, a styled unique location and props, skin smoothing if needed, teeth whitening if needed, and most of all, FUN!

We have also started planning our Spring minis and have a few spots left – Mommy and Me Minis, Spring Family Minis and Coastal Minis. We also have a super special just the kids/family mini planned in June this year, which is the first time we are doing a June mini! Contact us for more information before these sell out.

Sweet Carolina Photo Bus

Raleigh VW Bus Photography

Raleigh VW Bus Photography4.jpgP I N this to pinterest   Fall is always so crazy busy and I spend most of spring playing catch up on the blog. But there is so much cuteness to share, I just can’t not blog them! I’m trying so hard to get caught up.  Our VWBus minis were just so much fun this year at Boyce Farms, and these two cuties are just so adorable together. They loved the bus, and we captured soooo much adorableness of the two of them.This was our first time working with Sue of Sweet Carolina Photo Bus, and we loved her immediately! Ericka, Sue, and I shared a lot of laughs, tears, and spent a lot of time problem solving together during the holiday season. It’s safe to say we are all BFFs now. I first saw Sue’s bus in the Lafayette Village parking lot one day and immediately texted Ericka with a photo. (This is really how most of our photo shoots happen. One of us is out driving somewhere and we have to stop the car and text the other one. Every once in a while Ericka and I are out together, and we are like STOP, we have to get a photo!) I just love the Sally Clarkson quote, “It was a profound realization when I understood that I could become an artist with my very life.” (on my instagram today) Ericka and I really have a lot of fun together creating these sets, analyzing teeny tiny details, showing up early, problem solving, getting messy, carrying around huge props all over the place. All of it put together is just FUN. (I should be getting ready for a meeting Ericka and I have later today about Valentine’s Minis but instead I’m sitting here typing!! Eeek!! One spot left for Valentine’s Minis – send me an email if you want it! becky@rebeccakellerphotography.com) We are so very thankful for Boyce Farms letting us use their property, and we bought some of their beautiful wreaths, too! Ok, I gotta finish this up, time to meet up at the Soda Shoppe and plan another super fun mini!
