May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 2

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 2
We had so many images we loved from May mini's that we decided to break them up into two separate posts! We can't always pray the weather perfect, but I love that each family that came out just had fun with it and enjoyed the time, whether reveling in the warmth of a brief moment of bright sunshine, or chasing little ones for snuggles in a moment of light drizzle. An[...]

May 2017 Mini-Sessions Part 1
May mini-sessions didn't disappoint, even with the somewhat icky start to the day with the weather! While we do love that beautiful sunlight, sometimes an overcast forecast is good for a change.

Lea and Kevin Fearrington Film Wedding
When I pulled up to Fearrington, there was a blue sky to my left and dark clouds to my right.

I knew I had to do as many pictures outside as I could, just in case it started to rain, so I got to work. In the middl[...]

Strawberry Picking

Strawberry Picking
Every year for mother's day, I have two requests: Go strawberry picking with my family. Get a massage! I'd say that's a pretty awesome line up for every mother's day for the rest of my life, because I LOVE my family, I LOVE traditions, I LOVE freshly picked strawberries, and goodness knows I LOVE a massage. This tradition began on the very last mother's day [...]
