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!

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
