Buffalo Plaid

This winter I have been a little bit crazy about Buffalo Plaid. It’s just so pretty, and black and white so classic. Both of my boys definitely have some buffalo plaid shirts. And I want a tiny bit of it in the house somewhere, but I haven’t figure out what just yet. (So many options) All this to say, when big brother showed up in his buffalo plaid blazer, I loooooooved it. And this mama is always so classy and stylish, so we knew cuteness overload was coming in the boys’ clothes. (Her + Ericka had chatted beforehand about clothes, so Ericka had already warned me I was going to go crazy over their outfits)

Since this is a Christmas post, (long overdue, I know, I know!) I’m going to share my three favorite kind of silly Christmas songs. 1. Santa Claus Got Stuck in My Chimney. (Ella Fitzgerald) Seriously love this song + listen to on repeat. 2. I’m Getting Nuttin’ For Christmas. I think my boys get really tired of me teasing them with this song, ha, but it’s one of my dad’s favorites so of course, I love it, too. 3. Christmas Cookies by George Strait. I just had to search it on you tube and play it because I love it so much. “So those sprinkly things just make it worse. ‘Cause it makes them taste better than they did at first and they’re absolutely impossible to resist…”So if you feel like a little bit of a giggle on this snow day, search for these on you tube. (or itunes, or whatever:)I have always been a huge George Strait fan growing up, which I really just like so many different types of music, but I think I’m going to have to listen to George on this snow day now! (and make cookies, too, of course!)

On The Farm

Raleigh Holiday Mini Sessions Photography

I’m going to be posting so many Holiday minis in January because I am playing catch up from the crazy busy fall. I have loved photographing this sweet family the past couple of years, and their boys are just so much fun, it’s been so sweet to see little sister joining in on all the fun. I love how her sweet personality just adds so much to the session. I think we were all laughing just trying to keep her in the same place as her brothers!

So with the snow coming tomorrow, it has me thinking about board games. I feel like I need to amp up our stash a little bit, especially when snow days come. What are some of your favorite board games? When I was a kid, I lovvvved Monopoly . And on show days, the neighborhood kids – we would all play in the snow for a while and then head inside to play Monopoly . Because in NC, one little snowfall can turn into three days off of school, sometimes our monopoly games went on for days. Owen is actually a huge fan of the game, and it was really cute..He had a playdate with a few friends who are also huge monopoly fans over the winter break, and the boys played for hours. Their rules are a little bit made up and hilarious, but as long as they are having fun, right? So, if anyone has any great recommendations for other games to look into, please let me know! Ok, onto the milk and bread.

   Little Blue Truck

Raleigh Christmas Truck Mini Sessions Photographer

I was really excited when Ericka and I chatted about Little Blue Truck Christmas Mini Sessions. These were just so much fun at Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm in Raleigh. We had perfect weather, and all of the kiddos were jus so excited about the blue truck. I love the props Ericka picked out so much, too! The little tree and the lantern were adorable. These two boys together are so so cute, and I love all of the images of this sweet family.

I have to admit, I’m not a huge winter fan. (Being cold is my least favorite thing, ever) Michael bought me tickets to a play in NYC for Christmas and I asked if we could push it out to Spring, ha! I don’t even own a coat warm enough for NYC and we usually don’t need one that warm here in North Carolina….although this week is pretty frosty. But, I have to say, Christmas is a part of winter and I love Christmas. Ok, best parts of winter 1.Christmas. 2.Christmas break (see a trend here) 3.Snow Days (I like looking at the snow and being outside for about five minutes, ha!) 4.Hot chocolate every.single.day. 5.Reading Good books. I have more time in winter to read, which is my favorite! What’s your favorite part of winter?

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.
