The One with an Order of Four Bergers


I'll take four cheesin' Bergers.  That may be cheesy (so is that), but I couldn't pass up that easy pun.  I also cannot pass up a chance to photograph this adorable family.  I mean just look at those smiles!  Plus how could anyone not love a session that includes football, swinging, and playing outside!

The One at the Battery


Last week, I shared about my lifestyle photo shoot with the adorable Elliott family.  This week, I get to share my outing with them to the Battery in Charleston, South Carolina.  Although I had to google why this area is called the Battery, the beauty of the location took my breath away.  I have always wanted to shoot at a location like this with large overhanging trees that provide great shade for picnics and walks and also photoshoots, of course!  It is also right on the water which just adds to the beauty of the location.  I loved shooting at this location, but I loved shooting with the Elliott even more.  They were so sweet and fun to work with, and Ava was such a great model at only two months old.  Hoping to have many more shoots with this amazing famly in the future!

The One with Baby Ava's Lifestyle


Nothing shows who you are more than your own house, and people are always more comfortable at home which really shows through truly genuine smiles.  This is why I am all about lifestyle photo shoots, especially when couples have itty bitty babies.  I love getting to know my clients and show who they truly are through the photos that I take.  It also helps to have a baby in her comfortable environment and close to all necessary feeding, changing, and sleeping necessities since you never know what mood a baby will be in or how well she will have eaten or slept leading up to the shoot.  

During my weekend staying with this sweet family in Charleston, little baby Avanell was such a wonderful and beautiful model, just like her amazing parents.  Ava was so ready for her closeups and loved smiling at the camera.  We even got Lilly pup to join in on the shoot (yet another reason why lifestyle shoots rock: pets get to be more involved!).  Thank you so much for inviting me into your lovely home and allowing me to stand on your bed to capture these photos of your precious little princess.

I simply could not condense my favorites from this weekend into one post, so tune in next week for photos from my shoot with the Elliott family at the Battery in Charleston!

The One with the Whitehearts

I often give birthday and Christmas presents to people involving photos, so when I was asked to shoot this session to be printed as Christmas presents, I loved the idea!  I met the Whitehearts and their family members at the Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary, North Carolina.  The grounds at the Umstead are absolutely beautiful!  It was my first time shooting at the Umstead, and I am so glad that I got to!  This place is so picture perfect; we even changed spots at one point so that a hidden photographer could set up to shoot a proposal (it was beautiful, she said yes, the rock was huge, and everything about it was perfect).  I hope the Christmas gifts were enjoyed as much as I enjoyed working with these lovely people, and I hope you enjoy seeing their sweet smiles as well!
