Smiles + a nap | Raleigh Family Photographer


Smiles and a nap sound like the perfect combo, right?

Sometimes kiddos just need a break during a session. Maybe they need to nurse, or maybe they just need to take a little walk to get some fresh air. All that's a-ok. Your family session shouldn't be crazy and hectic and stressful. These images are supposed to depict your love, connection and joy as a family and being stressed and frazzled rarely ever leads to beautiful photos you want to plaster up on your walls! Taking a little five minute break gets your little ones away from the camera and often times it leads to magic - like a NAP on mama's shoulder during a session - how priceless is that?!?!

I don't always stop shooting during these little "breaks", but I do try to give you a little space and distance and capture you all from a far. Or often times, I'll take maybe a kiddo (and a parent) who doesn't need a break to the side for some fun portraits! The end goal is to always give you a beautiful representation of your lovely family. Tears and meltdowns are part of your life too and sometimes I'll sneak in and capture those moments as well. I promise you years from now, a meltdown photo of your then 2 year old will be beyond priceless.  

So don't worry, mama. We'll do whatever we need to relax YOU and your babies (and hubby) during your session! I promise it will be magical!

And with that, I know that you want to book a session immediately, right??. : ) Here's the low-down for ya. Family sessions are typically done in your home + fave places...we usually always venture outside around your home to play  (weather permitting). Some folks like to do just their house and yard, some folks like to do just one room of their house and their favorite park up the road. We're not meeting in some random park or place you've never been before. These are the places that matter most to you. This stage/house/moment you're at right now will be totally different and changed and just "where in the world did time go?" a year from now. Take the time to capture your here and now. I promise you will NEVER regret preserving those in-between moments. Call or email me for session deets (or just click this link riiiiiiight here).
