Raleigh NC Family Photographer | Fall & Christmas Mini Sessions

Tis The Season!

This is by far the busiest and most fun season of all… Time to get those annual family photos for Christmas cards and gifts!

This year, for the second time we are offering Christmas Jammy Sessions!! These are perfect for young children, and when all you want is cute Christmas card photos with the kids only. These are usually booked back to back so the session is face paced, painless, fun for the kids and it keeps them genuinely interested for the duration of the session. The kids feel relaxed… I mean, they are in their pajamas!! Who isn’t relaxed in their pjs??

Christmas PJ Mini Sessions

So many of the clients I work with are from Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina, Apex and Cary, NC. . That means it is important to have locations closely that allow for both full family sessions and easily accessible mini sessions. The rest of my clients are from North Raleigh and Wake Forest.

This years family photography sessions will be available at two stunning locations including Carriage Farm in Raleigh and the beautiful Sugg Farm in Holly Springs NC.  – The Sugg Farm location is perfect for extended family sessions, family sessions that include the fur babies as well as clients that have minimized mobility due to age or a handicap/disability. Sugg Farm conveniently located in Holly Springs. It features a wonderful combination of pastures, open fields, tree lines, woods and it is lined by gorgeous dark rustic fences. Here are some samples from sessions at Sugg Farm.

Raleigh NC Family Photographer | Wedding Photography | Mr and Mrs Ross

 

It was a stunning day in June for Stephanie and Travis to say “I do” surrounded and supported by their family,   close friends and loved ones at the beautiful wedding venue The Pavilion at Carriage Farm in Raleigh, NC.

The couple decided to exchange letters written by one another before the ceremony, but did not want to see each other or have a first look. So we carefully placed the groom on the stairs in the grand entrance of the venue, and then escorted the bride to the perpendicular corner of the stairwell where he was standing. Stephanie knew that this letter from her soon-to-be husband was likely going to make her cry.. and it did. Travis was remarkably strong and kept it together. But I could tell by looking at him he was working hard to not let a tear fall from those eyes. The couple held hands for a quick moment and then parted ways until their ceremony.

As guests arrived, they congregated in the shadows of the wedding venue until moments before the ceremony began to help everyone beat the heat. They kept cool with programs that were made into little fans.

Travis and Stephanie had a very large wedding party… Eight on each side! You could tell that these eight people truly meant so much to them. These are the same people that we’ll support and love them throughout their marriage. The groom was such a good sport this day… Was sure to make eye contact with my camera throughout the entire day, as opposed to many of the grooms who tried to avoid the camera whenever possible. I thought for sure she was going to drop at least one tear when he saw his beautiful bride been walked down the aisle by her father.. Instead that tear just sat in his eye.

When the bride finally was able to see if her groom, while holding her father’s arm her smile was so big and so genuine. Pure joy and happiness could be seen for miles. And so was the grooms smile.

The couple exchanged beautiful vows, rings, and their first kiss as Mr and Mrs!!

We were able to find a semi cool shaded area under a beautiful mature oak tree next to the pond. Although it was so hot, I never heard one of these members of the bridal party complain.. The only complaint I heard is that there wasn’t enough beer. Which is a totally valid complaint!! Haha!

I could have spent hours photographing these newlyweds. It was such a pleasure to work with this couple and their families as they celebrated their new life together as husband and wife.

Raleigh Family Photographer | Newborn Photography | Holly Springs NC 

 

OK.. I LOOOOOVE when this happens. An accidental shot of a HUGE newborn baby smile. It’s almost always a sure sign of an upcoming fabulous newborn session.

I have been waiting for this sweet little girl for a few moths now. My excitement for her arrival began when I met her mommy, daddy and big brother in April for the maternity session. I knew that afternoon she was going to be absolutely perfect.

As sweet as she is, she knows she has a lot of competition in the sweetness category with a wonderful big brother. Her big brother was so kind, gentle, loving and smitten with his little sister. He had no issues with holding her and loving on her for some photos. The camera was even saying “awwww”.

Here is a little sneak of their beautiful family photography portion of the newborn session. They took great natural lifestyle like family photos including mom and me, dad and me, brother and me along with sweet little hand holding.

After the family portion of the newborn photography session the boys stepped out to run some errands and we then focused on the newest addition to the family. She stole the show.

She has the most beautiful olive skin tone. It made it harder to pick what colors look best on her… In fact, she easily wore bold, bright and neutral colors with pure beauty. Check out at how well she wore this blingy newborn crown. I think we have a princess in the making! She can add this photo to her portfolio. Haha!

Sweet baby girl Green was a great sleeper throughout her newborn session. She allowed us to get through all of her family photography shots and about ¾ of her own newborn session before she made a stir to eat. Then she went back to sleep for a little bit before she woke up and watched me.

Holly Springs NC Photographer

Isn’t this shot of her perfect little newborn baby girl lips so cute? She was almost snoring in the shot!

She surely helps define the the term “Sleeping Beauty” without any argument.

Raleigh Family Photographer

After we were done she woke up… And watched. When I say she watched, she was not taking her eyes off of me. She was so cute. And we knew that her session was all done.

I can’t wait to watch this sweet little girl grow up.

  • Stephanie House - I love everyone of these pictures! You did an outstanding job!

Raleigh NC Cake Smash Photographer | Willhite Cake Smash Photography Session | Holly Springs NC

 

The oooohhhh SO sweet Vivian was in the studio, here in Holly Springs, for her first birthday cake smash photography session just a couple of weeks ago. After a lengthy stretch of birthday and cake smash sessions in which cake wasn’t a crowd pleaser, this birthday girl seemed to enjoy the cake AND the frosting… quite a bit!

Cake smash 1st birthday

Mommy picked out this adorable pink lace romper for her daughters cake smash session. During our pre-shoot consultation, we talked about how we can make sure that Vivian’s cake smash debut was special. I love being able to design this simple yet elegant cake smash set up. With pink, navy blue and gold we were able to capture her sweet personality in a classy yet simple way.

Raleigh Cake Smash Photographer

Initially she was a little bit apprehensive and how she should go about eating the cake. At first she was just using her index finger and thumb to get little teeny tastes of frosting. It didn’t take too long before her hands were covered with pink frosting. One of her favorite things she did was fill her hand with frosting, and then began clapping both of her hands together to make a perfect mess.

Then she started eating so much frosting… LIKE A CHAMP!

Raleigh NC Cake Smash Photographer

Just like all cake smash photography sessions, you never know what could happen…

In this case Vivian played and laughed and then played some more… Until she picked up the cake stand and dumped the cake right off! Haha!! She immediately knew she did something great because of her smiles.

You can tell by looking at the photo about how pleased she was with herself. She even gave herself around of applause. She really was so cute.

Happy birthday sweet girl!!

Raleigh NC Maternity Photographer | Maternity Photography | Sugg Farm, Holly Springs NC

The weather in Raleigh, NC has been quite unpredictable so far in 2017. It has been hard to determine if the temperature is going to be 60° or 90°, if it’s going to be sunny or pouring… so we are always making sure we prepare for both possibilities. This family maternity session is no exception. The weather held up and we were able to have a beautiful maternity session and it was comfortable for the soon to be big brother (which is so important).

Raleigh Maternity Photographer

I absolutely loved this beautiful, white, flowing cotton dress that mommy picked out for her maternity shoot. It made it very easy and comfortable to photograph mommy in. It reminded me so much of my maternity photography session almost 5 long years ago.

The neutral color of the dress allowed us to really focus on this mommy all while allowing the blues, being worn by daddy and soon-to-be big brother, to really pop against a dark rustic fences that line the fields at this beautiful location in Holly Springs, NC.

Raleigh Cake Smash Photographer | Boho Cake Smash Theme | Holly Springs, NC

This beautiful boho themed cake smash session all started so beautiful, sweet, innocent. It was so simple and elegant….

NC Cake Smash Photographer

Mommy shared a beautiful vision of the cake smash with me.. We tinkered with the idea of having different colors for the backdrop. There were so many options to choose from and it was kind of difficult, Im not going to lie, we could have gone so many ways and it would have changed the with the session looks drastically. I am so glad that we ultimately decided to go with the pink backdrop, especially with the red highlights in her hair and her skin tone. Ava seemed to like it too. Isn’t she so cute?

First birthday photographer Raleigh

The one thing with cake smash photography sessions, is that so many children are at developmental stages. Some of the babies are just learning how to stand up on their own. Some of them have started to take their first steps. And there are other ones like my youngest was…they are completely mobile and want nothing to do with sitting down or been told to sit down. Ava is very mobile and was all over the studio. By the end of the session the studio what’s covered in frosting, and so was mommy. Sometimes a cake smash is a team sport, like it was for this session. Haha!

Within a few minutes after the session started, this little Miss stood up, picked up the cake stand, and dumped the cake off of the stand. And it was a heavy cake. It was so funny!! Here is a slideshow of how that went down. **WARNING DO NOT LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS WITH A DRINK IN YOUR MOUTH*
