Pittsboro Photographer: Christmas Mini Sessions

Pittsboro Photographer: Christmas Mini Sessions

If you’re the type that doesn’t even want to think about Christmas until December, you might want to close your eyes and cover your ears!

I’ve been brainstorming this session since the summer and I’m so excited to see it come to life.  The kids were adorable in their Christmas jammies and completely suprised me by prefering to play with the ornaments over my beloved reindeer (these reindeer have been a Christmas tradition since my childhood).

Once again, I owe The Baby’s Room a huge thank you for allowing me to use their store as my studio.  Angela was awesome at keeping me on track and greeting everyone as they came in.

Love this set up?  Hate that you missed out on the fun? I’ll be hosting a round two on December 8th.  Email me for to book your spot.

Oh boy, did this move make me fall behind!  I can’t believe I’m just now finding time to blog this session when I could barely keep myself from posting all of them on Facebook while I was editing.  I met this couple at The Factory in Kernersville, NC before we moved.  I’m sad that I left this location behind it’s so perfect for many different types of sessions.

I absolutely adore this session.  This couple has been married a few years and decided to get portraits done for their anniversary since they didn’t have awesome engagement photos.  When she told me she loved the 1960’s/Mad Men type style, I went on a Google/Pinterest spree to get inspired.  Main Street gave us the best backdrop and they rocked it.  I love this dress she wore to a recent wedding and her husband gets brownie points for wearing red suspenders.  Don’t they look amazing together?  I really wanted a more sexy/romantic feel without being too… umm… risque… and I think they pulled it off perfectly.

I’ll have to post part two of this session too.  After they rocked this look, we changed it up to some “normal” clothes (blue jeans and t-shirts) and the session took a different turn.  It really is amazing how the wardrobe can change the overall feel of a session.  That’s one reason I now offer in person consultations so we can talk about outfits in depth and can be sure the atmosphere and feel behind your session is just what you had in mind.

Look out world!  This little guy is turning 2!

I follow his mom on Pinterest and she has all kinds of idea for his super cute Elmo-themed party.  Knowing he’d be sporting a red Elmo shirt, I knew it was the perfect time to pull out the banner Abigail’s mom made for me.   I also grabbed the red tin bucket I bought back when my youngest turned one.

We met at the park on probably the nicest day we’ve had yet this year and I set up in a cute little shady spot then we walked to the playground, drove to a different playground, walked down to the lake, blew bubbles in the meadow, and walked back to the second playground.  What a work out!  It was so worth it though.  He was such a sweetie and I loved how he was so interested in what was going on around us- he pointed out dogs and airplanes and birds.  I think he is pointing at something in at least a quarter of the images.  I loved getting to photograph on the playground even though I must have looked really silly being a grown up with a big camera playing on the toddler equipment and sliding down the slides.

Thanks for having me take your pictures!  Hope you enjoy them!  Happy -early- birthday!
