The Session In The Rain

Holden Beach Family Photographer

The beach is seriously unpredictable right? You really never know what’s going to happen! It could rain at a moment’s notice..it can be super windy especially if a storm is blowing out. If you plan for a beach session, you just have to be flexible, go with it, and laugh a lot. Like I could never have even imagined everything that went with our Coastal Minis last year – a house fire in the middle of our minis that shut down the road in both directions also during a torrential downpour storm, but it cleared up just in time to squeeze everyone in! I’m not sure when it started raining for this session, but we didn’t get too much time to squeeze in some memories in between laughing + getting wet. We even tried to hide by the dunes and see if it would pass over, but it just kept getting worse. The kids did love playing in it though! We’ve never had a session completely rained out since it usually passes over so quickly at the beach, but you just have to hope for the best.

We have our Coastal Minis coming up July 2nd, and we have one spot left – the 8PM spot, if you have older kids, this would work great for you. Also, super pretty sunset light at 8PM. See more Coastal Sessions here.

Proud Big Sister

Cary Wake Forest Newborn Photography

Remember the big flood in Raleigh that just happened, and roads all over Raleigh were shut down. Well, their newborn session was planned during all of the chaos. Of course, I looked at Google Maps like where are you taking me?? It sent me all over the place and way out of the way to their house, but I made it. I was a little worried about making it home, but, thank goodness, the rain stopped!

I love, love, love, sessions with siblings – so so sweet. This little one’s big sister has always had the sweetest little personality. (You can see her newborn portraits here) She is absolutely filled with smiles and just so happy about everything. And her with here baby brother, absolutely precious! She was all about holding him and kissing him. While her mama was feeding him, she showed me her kitchen and also how she feeds her baby dolls. (the cutest!) Way oversharing because I love so many images from this session!

Pretty In Pink

Downtown Raleigh Family Newborn Photography 

I first met big sister + her Mama at our Holiday Minis with Santa. I was so excited to find out that she was going to be a big sister! Oh, and her sister was just precious! Those cheeks, that little smile, LOVE! She was bright eyed and awake for the first part of our session and just so content for her sister to hold her. A fun thing about sessions at home – I was able to take some portraits of big sister in her room and in her playroom, so fun! This was such a sweet morning at home capturing these sweet sisters together.

According to Mom…

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? She’s got so much hair! Then, how much she looked like her sister, Olivia!

What was your favorite part of our session together? Loved being in the comfort of our home and the pictures of us in our environment, particularly Olivia in her bedroom and in her playroom.

How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? Not much aside from outfit planning.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you nervous or worried before? How did it turn out? Was worried about baby and preschooler not cooperating but hey did great, and we got some great smiles. Would have liked to get some more shots with the hubby but we were limited with his time — maybe next time!!

What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Go with the flow

Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? Not particularly sentimental, but we had that lamb that Olivia loved as a baby.

Do you have other children? How did they react to the baby? Olivia gushes over her sister and adores her. She is constantly asking to hold her or help change her diaper etc

How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? Wake up late, brunch, play

Star of the Show

Cary Apex Newborn Family Portraits

It took an hour but I made it to a newborn session I had this morning in the monsoon. Did anyone else use google maps? It was like, pretty much every road in Raleigh is closed or a nightmare, let’s go this way – way out of the way to your destination. I did see police officers out measuring water on the roads but only one wreck, thank goodness. Hoping that was the last of the rain and it is far gone from here!

This sweet family was a dream to photograph! These sweet girls were full of giggles + smiles and of course, lots of kisses for their new baby brother. And he was just as chill as can be and soaked in all the doting from his sisters. Ok, and now we have to talk about their puppy. We chatted about whether they wanted their puppy in the photos and it was kind of like, yeah that would be great, but if he doesn’t cooperate, that’s ok, which is mostly how it goes at newborn sessions, because a lot of times you’re just too tired to care about mostly everything. This puppy was chill like most of the family and rallied to be the star of the show. So many cute photos! I love when pets can be part of newborn sessions since they are part of the family, too!

And if you’re thinking about a newborn session for late summer/fall, we only have a few spots left! Looking forward to all the babies we get to meet soon!

We had so much fun Saturday night at our first ever family mini sessions with Little Apple Styles. Our clients had fun, we had fun, so many giggles. It’s no secret, we love, love, love Boyce Farms. Their farm is the best spot to get your tree whether you get it from the field or buy one of their trees from the mountains. We also loved the lil photo bus + all of our wonderful props from Suzanna’s Antiques. On with the previews!
