This past weekend I traveled out my normal zone to support my mom and her friends (human and four-legged) at the Animal Protection Society of Person County‘s first annual Wag-a-thon. If you’re looking for a pet, please look into a rescued animal. Each of these animals have been foster pets, some of them capturing the hearts of their foster moms and getting adopted. Special needs animals are especially lovable such as Scooter, the super-fast chihuahua on wheels, and Maggie, sweet dog that is deaf but knows several tricks in doggie sign language.
I’ve never been so happy to see blue skies as I was on Sunday. The past week has been nothing but scattered showers and thunderstorms so I was biting my nails as the session time approached. An hour before the session, the bottom drops out. I scurried to the computer to watch the radar, still debating on if we should cancel. Right as I’m packing the car, the rain lets up. As soon as I turned onto 40, all I could see is blue skies. I totally squealed without excitement.
I’m so glad the threat of rain didn’t cause us to reschedule. I met this family at Old Salem for extended family portraits. How good looking are they? I love the coordination in their outfits. I always suggest picking three colors and coordinating the family around it- I love that they chose white, khaki, and pink. The pink is a refreshing burst of color.
I love extended family shoots. There is so many different dynamics and relationships that I love the capture. I always get snap happy and end up with lots of images. This session was no exception.

The C family won my big giveaway last month and we met Saturday at Old Salem for family portraits.
I was blown away by the amount of love these kids have for each other. I don’t have an older brother (just an older sister and younger brothers) but if I did, I’d want him to look after me like C does W. Both older siblings were more than happy to push the stroller, tote the little guy, and get the sippy cup for him. It was a pleasure seeing them interact and getting to photograph their relationship.
And one of the little guy just because I love dramatic lighting
Thanks C Family!
