Hey Santa!

Raleigh Santa Mini Sessions Photographer

It’s me, posting about Christmas for the whole month of January, because I finally get to blog all the magical mini sessions we had this fall! These two boys were so adorable with Santa. Photographing Santa mini sessions really is so much fun to see how excited the little ones are and experience the magic of Christmas.

One thing I also love about Christmas is foooood. It is definitely the most exciting food time of the year for me, ha! We made red velvet nutcracker cakes this year, which was new and super yummy. I also love pretty much all of the Hickory Farms food, which we have on Christmas Eve. We had prime rib at my in laws and beef tenderloin on Christmas Day at my parents..Then there was Christmas Eve Honeybaked Ham and all the fixin’s. (such a Southern word, ha!) And so many desserts, Christmas cookies, strawberry cake, chocolate pies, cheesecake, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, breakfast casseroles, ok, I could keep going on and on. I love collecting new recipes each year..I recently went to a women’s event where a Mama showed us her Christmas notebook where she organized all her presents, recipes, etc, and just got it back out every year. What a great idea! Click here for a blog post I found on making a Christmas notebook, and there are a lot of printables out there for organizing your planner. I love Christmas so much, I would love to plan for it all year long!

The Airstream

Raleigh Family Christmas Mini Session Photographer 

 

Oh, Darling, Let’s Be Adventurers…

It is always fun to dream up a creative family shoot for clients, and this one was just so much fun. I’m not a huge camping fan, so this was the best way to camp, ha! (not camp….) I did work at a wilderness camp in 2003 and spent my summer in the woods, even hiked the Appalachian Trail. It was a stretch for me, but I survived. We did a lot of camping with my church youth group growing up. One time, I was in a tent with a friend or two, and it started pouring so badly, there was water everywhere and the tent just slid down the hill into the lake (with us in it). On another camping trip, and a friend and I gave up and slept in my brother’s explorer? expedition?…it was big. The rain was just soaking through our tent like crazy and we were soaked. I have had terrible snake encounters outside – not bit, thank goodness, but I did step on one a few minutes into a hike. Another one surprised jumped out at me from a rock. (And completely weird that in all the tall grass, etc. that I’m in for sessions, I haven’t seen a snake during a photo session yet) I probably shouldn’t have said that because, you know, now I’m going to see one. Ok, so I feel like I had to tell you all of this to say, that the airstream is my kind of camping. It was beautiful and even had a shower – pretty cool.

Boyce Farms has been a favorite for so many years, and the owners are just the best. We love, love, love this farm + loved being able to have the minis there again this year. It is the best farm, and the only place to get your Christmas tree!

Ericka and I spent a lot of time discussing + dreaming up this mini, and I cannot wait to show you all of the images. Previews are hard because I don’t want to give the whole thing away so clients are super excited when they see their gallery. Every single session went so well, Ericka tolerated my Christmas music, we sang the Trolls soundtrack, paddington made an appearance + some clients even got to witness Ericka’s amazing dance moves!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much to everyone who came! It was truly an adventure + so much fun.

Little Blue Truck

Raleigh Fall Mini Sessions Photography

 

“Horn went ‘Beep!’

Engine purred.

Friendliest sounds

You ever heard.”

-from Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle

    It’s no secret Ericka and I love planning and creating styled minis for our clients. And I love the simplicity Ericka designed with the apple baskets and flowers. This one was just. so. PRETTY. We were so happy to have beautiful weather both days (yay for no rain!) These just went so smoothly, I think all the little ones just thought the truck was so much fun. The hilarious part was the apples….everyone wanted a snack during the session – ha! And those images are adorable, too! These minis take a lot of work – location scouting, finding private property, getting permission, finding the truck, prop shopping, and in the end, it’s so so worth it! These came together beautifully, and I love the color palette Ericka chose for the flowers. Everything was perfect. So many more to share soon, but super excited to post a preview. For more information on other fall minis – send me an e-mail (becky@rebeccakellerphotography.com) Thanks to everyone who came + made this such a fun weekend!

Booking for Fall+Holiday Minis

Raleigh Fall Family Mini Sessions

downtown-raleigh-baby-photographer_3463P I N this to pinterest

From our 2016 Fall Minis

Booking for our 2017 Fall + Holiday Minis starts this Wednesday evening. We are so excited about all of our minis with Little Apple Styles! Booking will be opened up to the e-mail list first, so if you aren’t on the email list, sign up here! These go quick, and will be super cute + styled! These are a few examples from last year’s minis. Don’t miss all the cuteness for this year’s minis! Set an alarm on your phone so you remember to check your email at 8PM Wednesday.

How do our minis work? We will be sending out all dates, prices, and information in our email so you can have as much information as possible about who are minis are for (Is it a family mini or just the kids) how much it is, location area, and time. Ericka and I have been working together for a long time now, and you won’t believe how long even 5 minutes can be when photographing just the kids. You can read over all the different time/price/how many people options and decide what works for your family, budget + don’t forget, your Christmas Card. I know, I’m talking about Christmas cards in July, but how nice to go ahead and have your yearly photo planned + done, with a fun editorial image to boot. We strive to make our sessions unique, styled, and just plain fun – something we aren’t going to do for every session, but something we can plan for our minis. We spend a lot of time scouting locations, searching for props, and dreaming up ideas just for you.

Sunrise

NYC Central Park Family Photographer 

We went on an amazing crazy 1700 mile road trip for Spring Break this year (read all about it here) We crammed so much into a little bit of time..and we were supposed to be in NYC for two days, but it ended up being less than 24 hours because we had to rearrange our trip for a few things..All that being said, if I was going to take pictures in NYC, I’d definitely choose sunset, but, with being there with such little time, sunrise was our only option. And I mean, we had fifteen minutes maybe before it was too bright and covered in light. My husband loves me since he drove us the night before and slept five hours to get up at sunrise for this. He also helped me location scout something that showed the buildings but that would also work at sunrise. And lastly, of course, all his amazing sounds that make the boys crack up while I am trying to photograph them.*Husband of the year* We even picked our hotel to be close, and that worked out great. We did take a quick taxi drive there since it was a little dark, and we barely beat another photographer to the exact spot. Whhhhew. Central Park was hopping though…everyone in the city was up and working out. I really wanted an image with the skyline in the background and I love these so much of my little cuties. *Special thanks to Ericka for meeting me at Janie and Jack last minute to review wardrobe* Oh, and Harrison’s bowtie was the exact same print as Michael’s tie he wore on our wedding day, so it was must. Love it!
