Family Portraits || the K. Family || Falls Lake || Wake Forest, North Carolina

"There's a brand new baby in our house
The nicest little gift we've ever had
How much fuller life's become..."

Somebody is going to be a big brother! With baby No. 2 on the way, my dear friends (whom you may remember from both their engagement portraits and their last maternity portrait session) opted for a family and maternity portrait session in the park. We chose Blue Jay Point County Park which ended up being the perfect spot with lots of options. The day was pleasant, the light was golden, and the toddler stayed happy and agreeable - big win on all fronts!

Thank you, K. family, for trusting me with your family portraits!

Family Portraits || the N. Family || Youngsville, North Carolina

What a joy it was to work with this sweet family! Though we hit a couple of snags in the early stages of planning (due to sickness and weather), causing us to adjust our original plans a bit, the day we ended up shooting on went beautifully - a true blessing from the Lord! 

Though the weather was chilly, the children were real troopers and by bouncing back and forth between indoors and out, we were able to manage the cold and keep smiles on faces. I was so thankful that despite the temperature, the Lord gave us a such beautiful sunny day!

Family Reunion || Wake Forest, North Carolina || E. Carroll Joyner Park

What a fun treat it was to work with this precious family! When my dear friend from church asked if I'd be interested in doing an extended family portrait session for her, you can be sure that I was more than happy to oblige!

It was such a beautiful and enjoyable afternoon; as anyone who frequents this blog at all will know,  Joyner Park is one of my absolute favorite locations. So many options and so much room for creativity with all of the trees, green lawn, stone walls, old cabins...ah! Pure delight! And each member of this wonderful family was a delight to work with as well. Photographing families and the love they share is one of my favorite parts of this job and I am so grateful for the opportunity I had to work with this dear group of people.



All of the cousins! 

Telling baby not to cry... 











The youngest member of the family was not sure he liked this whole "portrait session" thing! 

...but he eventually decided to be ok with it! Smiles all around! 



No family session would be complete without a silly cousins photo! 

Let the silliness reign!
