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!

The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.

– E.E. Cummings

    I just love this quote about little boys. And of course, the preciousness of brothers has a special place in my heart being a boy mom. This is not the first time we’ve photographed these two, and they are just so sweet together. And those Santa slippers, adorable! I absolutely love the props Ericka picked out for the Little Blue Truck Minis – that little Christmas tree and the light up lantern were just so much fun. And such sweet memories were made!

We are working on releasing all the dates for our Spring minis, soon, so if you aren’t on the email list, or in our facebook group, sign up for the newsletter here. We usually send out all the details to the email list first. Ericka and I have some super fun ideas planned this year, and we are so excited about them!

Friday Faves

Raleigh Family Photographer

I’ve been watching When Calls the Heart on netflix when editing. It took me a few episodes to get reeled in and now I am hooked.

Keto honestly scares me a little bit but I love eggs so all these recipe ideas, oh yum!

The teddy bear coat trend is an interesting idea.

New KitchenAid attachment– wow!

I wore these shoes at Disney and they were super comfortable. I mostly wear them everywhere now. (And some favorite sweatshirts for the trip here and here) I will admit I was a little tempted to buy some run Disney gear when we were there since it was the marathon, and I will never ever run it, but the jacket was fun! ha!

This instagram post – super encouraging.

A great post about affordable large art.

Did anyone else listen to Adventures in Odyssey as a kid? The boys have loved listening to this!

And because we really don’t understand or know how to handle below freezing temperatures in NC but seem to have a lot of them lately, how to dress when it’s freezing outside. 

Loving this post this week, especially since we, in North Carolina, can relate to the snow.

I love these weekly cleaning schedules. Half the time it goes out the window, but it’s fun to have on the days I actually have time to pick up the vacuum.

These snow boots are so adorbs! And we know we still have two more months for it to snow. Ahhhhhh!

Saving for our next trip!

Going to see the new Star Wars tonight! Eeeek! Will let you know what I think!

The Glittery Snow Globe

Raleigh Santa Claus Photographer

Raleigh Santa Claus Photographer 4.jpgP I N this to pinterest

I’ve been photographing this sweet girl since she was a newborn + her and Santa together is just precious. I loved this set Ericka worked so hard on so so much! It takes a lot of time to put together the sets, but when they are finished, they are so worth it! And this sweet girl’s dress was just perfect + beautiful. I love the holidays so much so I’ve loved going back through each session to blog them…especially the magic of Santa sessions – little ones bringing their lists and getting just so excited to see Santa. It’s the sweetest.

My boys had so much fun sledding on the little hill behind our house this afternoon. They mostly loved dodging snowballs from their daddy and also trying to hit him with their own snowballs. The snow is just so pretty, I can’t believe I’m saying that I’m actually going to be sad to see it go. Without the hurriedness of errands and carpool, I’ve been able to get a lot of work done. It’s also so fun to see everyone’s snow photos + videos on social media. And the snow looks so pretty with the blue skies today. Still waiting to see if they are going to call off the schools tomorrow. I’m excited to start working on our snowflake cookies! Fun, fun!

Beep

Raleigh Holiday Family Photography 

Raleigh Holiday Family Photograpy 45.jpgP I N this to pinterest

This was the first time we met this sweet family at our first ever Holiday Blue Truck Minis. Beep Beep! And they were just so sweet together. How cute is this little one? He was all smiles for Ericka + I!

Fifteen degrees. It was fifteen degrees this morning. My little one wants to be out in the snow just so badly, but at fifteen degrees, my hands just ache. And I have to laugh at my older one, who loves warmth so much, he wants to be inside building forts and watching Star Wars marathons. (which we have been doing. The force is strong with this one) We recently took the Star Wars tour at Disney, and it was so super fun. Growing up with a brother, we alternated between Anne of Green Gables + Star Wars, so having seen it so much, of course I am a fan. The boys did the hilarious photoshop thing in the Star Tours gift shop on our trip, I need to post it today. I think that it may have been the photographer’s first day because she was getting some help during the process. In the midst of that, Harrison was screaming that he wanted to take a nap. (My child loves his sleep now) I don’t remember what happened – Michael must have done something goofy, but he smiled for one second in the middle of the crazy busy gift shop. (probably his Yoda voice, Harrison’s favorite) I am thankful after the busy busy fall, I cherish the quietness of January and getting to be with my boys a lot more. And even having these snow days after our trip, to get to have some quiet time with them is a treasure. My main goal today is to make snowflake cookies with them. For some reason I have always been afraid of making cookies from scratch, like they wouldn’t hold together or it’s too many ingredients, I’m wasting money since I don’t make them a lot. (I know, all silly excuses) But these past few months, my boys have loved making cookies. And making them from scratch is so much easier than I thought and not that many ingredients. (especially since the boys want to bake a lot) By happy accident, we made our sugar cookies with lemon extract over the holidays. (I thought I bought vanilla but I bought lemon! ha!) Now my boys love lemon sugar cookies, and I actually like them better, too! It’s a memory and a treasure to have this time with them..On that note, I’m not sure when this snow is going to melt but I promised Harrison a sled ride today, so off I go!
