Cory + Tracie | Umstead Hotel Garden Wedding

You may know that I typically don’t photograph weddings.

However, when Tracie asked I just had to say yes.

(Plus they wanted studio engagement pics you know I love to do – I blogged them HERE)

.

Who doesn’t love an intimate outdoor garden wedding?

A true celebration of love, surrounded by those that love you most.

Simply beautiful xo

Everyone was given a glass of champagne to enjoy during the ceremony & to join in the toast immediately following.

The Sanchez Family | Raleigh Cary Family Photographer

I knew from the first phone call that I would enjoy photographing this family.

I love a family that’s not afraid of a winter session – in NC it really is hit or miss, and it was on with warm-ish temps for their session!

Mom wanted to capture these early tween & almost high school smiles, near and dear to my heart as I am in the same boat.

.

We met downtown and the fun began…

You can just tell they are a loving family 🙂

One of my favorite downtown spots- literally looks like another place & time!

They opted for a wardrobe change – our initial plan was to stay downtown, but the traffic and parked cars were too much, so we packed up and headed to Pullen Park!

So glad we did.  Just love how these all turned out.

Precious girl!

So sweet & very handsome!

And here is the wall display we put together for their family room – new design that fits their room beautifully.

And in all modern metal prints, will be a show-stopper!

Stroud-LoVerde Family Session | Chapel Hill Photographer

It was a long road of patience with Mother Nature to photograph this beautiful family!  Here’s the story –

About TWO years ago Mom booked me for a family session.  We experienced unfortunate weather delays, and then they moved to Tennessee!

2013 Thanksgiving they were in town but yet AGAIN we were rained out!  Time flew by and we eventually rescheduled for this past Thanksgiving break when they were back in Raleigh.

Guess what?

Yup, the weather didn’t cooperate.  This session WAS going to happen.  I strapped on my flash, borrowed a rain coat & they held umbrellas until I said to throw them out of frame…

THESE pictures were taken on a cloudy drizzling day! Can you tell?

 (be sure to scroll to bottom to see the awesome wall display from these images!)

Easy going, playful, just plain awesome FAMILY 🙂

The Lenaeus Family | Cary Family Photographer

Happy New Year!

Be prepared for a lot of fun family blog posts coming your way … it’s catch up season!

.

Just when I think I can’t have any more fun, another fabulous family comes my way.

Lively, fun loving, colorful … loved this family!

They are a family of skaters, so we began the session at a local rink (I was NOT on skates lol!)

Linaeus-121Linaeus-123

I did a quick scout of the outside before we began, and found all sorts of awesome backdrops.

We never left the rink for the rest of the shoot!
