Watermelon Minis

Raleigh Family Child Photography

    Watermelon on a hot summer day is the best, and we had so much fun with these minis. (See more of our minis here) Sometimes the weather can be unpredictable on hot summer evenings, but we were blessed with perfect weather for these. Watermelon is a summer favorite. What are some of your favorite summer activities? One of the things I LOVE about summer is the flexibility of not having a school schedule. I can finish a session, pick up the boys and run to a movie. Also, not having to stress out about bedtime so much. Some of our favorite summer things include bunch o balloons. (These are genius! Not having to tie water balloons!) bubbles, of course, miniature golf, sandcastles, waterparks, swimming, collecting seashells, baseball games, game nights (I am the reigning Clue champion) Summer is the best! After summer, it gets really busy around here in the fall with so many fun family sessions + minis. (Ericka and I have are big meeting tomorrow morning to finalize everything – yay!)

It just seems like things have been crazy busy lately, from a super busy spring with my dad’s surgery straight into summer. With having both kids at home, things are definitely a lot busier. And I love summer so much, so I love soaking up summer….one thing I am especially loving right now is the Sunflowers. Ericka had to drag me out on Sunday kicking and screaming because I would have stayed there all night – ha! They are just so beautiful and so fun to shoot in. (We have one more night of minis tonight!) I may or may not have gone back last night just for fun. I will be so so sad when they are gone! I’m just so glad that the City of Raleigh planted them somewhere else this year, and we can all enjoy them. So, back to the topic of being busy, ha! I try to keep editing + getting photos out to clients at the top of my priority list so sometimes blogging gets pushed back, and I loooove blogging my sessions. This evening really just turned out to be perfect. It was one of those great weather days in the middle of unbearable days. We really lucked out, and the kids were just so happy and relaxed. It was such a fun time downtown while this family said goodbye to Raleigh with one more photo session.

According to Mom..

What’s your favorite family activity? We have a weekly “movie night” with candy and popcorn. Everyone looks forward to it.

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one!

Bryon (Husband and Dad): He likes brewing beer, is one of five boys, and enjoys international travel.
Leslie (Wife and Mom): She loves CrossFit, playing with her kids, and recently became a massage therapist.
Oliver (6 years old): He is a sweet boy that loves snuggles, pudding, and his little sister. 
Evelyn (4 and a half years old): She loves playing with Mom and Dad, watching “shows” on her iPad, and going to gymnastics. She wants to learn to ski, to ice skate, and to dance.

What was your favorite part of our session together? It was a beautiful day without a lot of humidity. Becky always makes the session so laid back. There is never any pressure to finish up the session quickly. My favorite part was seeing how much Evelyn loves her brother and how much of a ham she is for the camera.

Tell me about the outfits you wore to the session. Bryon’s clothes were in his wardrob already. I bought Oliver and Evelyn’s at Target. My clothes I bought at Kohl’s. I wanted everyone to be comfortable especially since the session was at a park. The kid’s clothing colors complimented each other, so Bryon and I tried to coordinate.

Did anything eventful happen during your session? Only that Evelyn LOVED being photographed.

Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? The only worry was whether or not it would be too hot during the session.

What are some words of wisdom you have for other families preparing for a session? Decide on your clothing well in advance. Also, reach out to Becky and her team if you have any questions about wardrobe or other things.

Joy

Raleigh Newborn Photography

A little glimpse into the sweetness of this newborn session this week. I absolutely love all of the joy that surrounds a new baby. Sometimes grandparents are also at the session which just adds to the joy. (And how wonderful to have the help when you have a new baby!) And this little one, he slept through most of the session, just so content to be snuggled by his Mommy and Daddy. (And his grandma got in on the snuggles, too!) Grandparents are always included in the newborn session. And it is so, so nice, to have your newborn session at home. We don’t usually use a lot of the room so how decorated your house is doesn’t matter. The focus is on you and the love for your new baby, all without having to leave the comfort of your own home. When it’s time to feed your baby, it’s just nice to have all of your stuff and your comfortable spot. And all your blankets and diaper changing supplies, everything is right there. Ericka also helps with picking out wardrobe, and I can help with last minute wardrobe decisions when I arrive. This was one of those sessions that was just so calm and sweet, and a joy to photograph in their home. Our spring is booking up with newborns – contact us soon if you want to get on the calendar!

Christmas Cheer

Raleigh Christmas Tree Farm Family Photos

This session was from round two of our VW Bus Minis at Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm in Raleigh. First of all, we had perfect weather. I am still amazed that it wasn’t ridiculously cold or didn’t rain any of our outdoor mini dates. These two were just so cheerful and sweet together! It is always fun photographing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of a child. Love all of our VW Bus minis, and can’t wait to share them all on the blog soon!

Special Thanks to Sweet Carolina Photo Bus and Back Achers Christmas Tree Farm

Fall Light

Raleigh Maternity Photographer

A few things are over – the extremely busy fall we had. (It was so so much fun but it was nonstop!) Christmas break is over for my oldest- he’s back to school today. Yes, I miss him. Am I the only one that doesn’t want Christmas break to end? I loved being able to bake cookies, go see a movie..all the things I just don’t have a lot of time for during the crazy fall season. Plus, since it’s below freezing and ridiculously cold, I think I’d rather stay inside, drink hot chocolate and bake cookies than be anywhere outside. Cold is not my BFF. We were really blessed this year that our mini sessions were not freezing cold days, and not a single drop of rain on any of the scheduled dates, which is really a miracle. I have so much to blog from the fall, and I really can’t wait to share all of the cuteness. Our minis this year were so much fun – airstream minis, little blue truck, VW Bus, and Santa.

But before I get into blogging all of the holiday minis, I had to share this maternity session. That fall light was just so pretty, and this mama was stunning! (Love, love, love her dress!) I love this location because it’s quiet in the fall, and even in the summer, we might get the occasional photobomb swimmer in the water, but it’s usually just peaceful. These two were just so sweet together which made capturing their maternity portraits effortless. They laughed and laughed. Can’t wait to meet their sweet baby soon!
