KACHOW! 

Halloween Lightning McQueen Photographer

Special Thanks to Wake County Speedway 

I wish I could have taken a video of Harrison when we drove up. (You know, I couldn’t since I was driving) It was like his Disney World, he was so excited. Since the spring, he has been the biggest Lightning McQueen race car fan. We were out at dinner at the beach this summer, and he saw a race on tv and was just mesmerized. It was only appropriate that when he finally had a birthday party..(well, he had a 1/2 birthday party this summer since he was born on 12/25) Well, it had to be a Cars 3 party. And it’s been everything Lightning McQueen ever since. We have cars kind of everywhere, and he just loves playing cars. One night I caught him filling up his bed with cars before he went to sleep. His love of cars is absolutely precious. (If you’re wondering why Owen is not in the Halloween pictures this year, he decided that he didn’t want to participate in Halloween. He said he doesn’t like seeing people dressed up as witches and scary stuff + would rather not participate. He has decided he may go to a church trunk or treat this weekend) I did get a few of the boys together, and Owen helped me take these, but he chose not to participate. This was so much fun – he sang songs from SING the whole time, and huge thanks toWake County Speedway for letting us come and photograph the racetrack.

Sun Soaked 

Raleigh Babys First Year Photography 

All through the year the light changes..what time it rises, what time it sets. The clouds can dictate a lot about what the light will be like at a session. The light the night of their session was just stunning, and perfect for such a sweet evening snuggling their baby girl. It was just so adorable – this little one LOVES her mama’s hair in a top knot. She just giggles! Absolutely adorable.

According to Mom..

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one? Stephen-Native to North Carolina. 
Olivia- Liv was born on Cinco de Mayo after 26 hrs of labor! And she looks like her Daddy! 
Alecia– I always loved the name Olivia. It was my pseudonym for an occasional latte at Starbucks:)

Does your little one have any favorites? Liv loves when I wear my hair in a top knot and shake it like crazy. She loves taking walks outside, swinging on her front porch swing and her white noise machine.

Tell me about your favorite parts of the session or why you enjoyed the session. The sun setting, the light was beautiful and getting all the shots felt easy and comfortable.

Tell me about the outfits you wore to the shoot + why you chose them. Our outfits were neutral and clean colors to go with our pictures being outside near a field. Stephen’s shirt is my favorite color on him.

Any words of wisdom you have for other moms preparing for a session? Bring toys for your babe, we forgot! Maybe pack them in your diaper bag the day before!

What baby gear has been your favorite during the first year? Portable white noise machine, Womby swaddle, Tula carrier, Little Unicorn muslin swaddles and my Fawn diaper bag/book bag

Perfect Summer Light 

Wake Forest Maternity Portraits 

These two are just so sweet together, and they stayed out in the heat for their maternity portraits like it was nothing. It has been hot lately, people. Like seriously hot..like you can’t even believe it hot.I had a session last night and everyone looked stunning, but it was 90 degrees and we were cruising right along. You can tell these two just have so much fun together – so much laughter during this session. The area where we had their maternity portraits had a lot more water an usual and was a little bit flooded. The water also smelled super bad, which you know, when you’re pregnant, all smells are worse. So, this Mama was even more of a trooper. Plus, she is having twins (so exciting!) so she’s basically superwoman!

I love this location because the light is just so pretty! It’s one of the location options for our maternity mini sessions, and it’s just so pretty all year. I loved the images at the end with the rocks and the water (it was moving so fast!) It did smell a little worse out there, but the photos were totally worth it! I even had to yell a lot. Water + wind can make it hard to hear me. I was laughing so hard I was crying at our Coastal Minis because seriously, no one can hear me, especially when I’m behind the camera – ha!

We also are sending out info tonight at 8PM about all our options for Holiday minis in the fall so sign up for the newsletter for more information.

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!
