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!
