When a client answers your questionnaire with, “I’ll let you work your magic,” you know it’s a perfect match, and I always love traveling home for sessions! This Fuquay-Varina family session was touch and go up until the last minute. The weather all week was rainy and it poured the night before. They called for more rain that evening but it cleared long enough for us to capture some amazing images. Laura is a talented photographer and her precious family was the absolute best to spend time with! I will admit it’s always a little intimidating when a fellow professional in the industry asks to do a session. But it’s also such a huge compliment and I was honored she chose me. It was such a fun night! I love how the overcast weather created an intimate feeling in the surrounding greenery. What you can’t see in the background were bunches of lightening bugs and two donkeys that were milling around beside the pond…such an interesting audience 🙂 These are some of my favorites from their laid back family session.
From minute one this mom + me session was hilarious! I have never met a boy (other than my own) that is so genuinely opinionated on his wardrobe. Which shirt to wear, to take his vest on or off and by all means include his lovey in a few showcase shots. Truth be told he ran the show…and I love that! This session left me exhausted in all the best ways. My face hurt from laughing so much, my back hurt from chasing and being chased by an all-boy kiddo with a stick full of swamp weeds and I walked away with my heart full of witnessing motherhood in all its beauty. My friend Lindsay is amazing and this sweet boy is proof of that.
