Holly Springs NC Photographer | Patrick Mommy and Me Session | Holly Springs
I have been working with the Patrick family for a few years now… and every time I have a lovely time and the sessions get better and better. This session was scheduled to document Nora’s 2nd birthday. What I loved about this is that it was a “Mommy and Me” session. I loved the idea of an outdoor session, because I have missed photographing sessions outside being that it was such a cold winter and a very rainy spring.
We took these photos at a beautiful park, in the morning here in Holly Springs. About 20 minutes from Raleigh. The sun was shining beautifully through the trees and it gave us such beautiful lighting.
For this mommy and me/ birthday session, mommy communicated with me that she was looking for something delicate, gentle and had a beautiful bohemian feel. This was easier achieved with light colors, especially with the blush pink, long, flowing dress that mommy wore. And I have to be honest, this color pattern is my favorite for these sessions. It truly brings in a feminine feel.
Just to mention it again, this was not just a mommy and me session. This was also a session to help document this sweet little girl’s second birthday. What better way to document a girls birthday than with flowers… Big, beautiful, delicate, blooming flowers. It seems as though she liked having the flowers there as well. She spent much of her time inhaling the beautiful scent of them.
I wanted to make sure that they have were able to take these flowers home and enjoy them there. So we didn’t spend too much time using them for the session so that they were able to enjoy the flowers after the session, at home. I promise, they smelled beautiful. I wish there was away to share that beautiful floral smell with you through the computer.
After we were all done using the flowers, we got some lovely candid shots of of just Nora. She hammed it up for the camera just enough.
She was such a great sport, considering she had some dirt on her feet that got through her sandals…. She really didn’t mind too much. I was far more worried how about getting any of that dirt or mud on their dresses. After all, the colors were so light, it would have showed and given me far more time with edited. Luckily, for all of us, we avoided that concern. Every time she stood on the grass, we wiped her sandals and feet off to keep mommy and daughter completely dirt free.
Here are just a few more portraits from the mommy and me portion of the session.
I hope you love looking at these photos as much as I love taking them.
