Owen & Zoey

Owen and Zoey have birthdays just a few days apart.  So they shared their birthday photoshoot.

You know it'll be a great photoshoot when nature welcomes you:

It was h-o-t outside and lots of mosquitoes, but they were troopers.  So smiley and happy!

When photographing multiple children--it's a success if they smile at the same time--it's so hard to achieve!

The sun kept going behind the clouds then popping out, which is hard for me to keep switching my settings, while trying to get the smiles--but it makes for a lovely variety of dark/light photos for 1 session.

Loved the location:

And what would a 1 yr old photoshoot be without the lace romper!

Friends | Utah Mountains

IMG_5601 wm

For awhile I've been uncreatively uninspired by the boring North Carolina green pine trees in the background of EVERY photo.  I mean really, is there any outdoor location in Raleigh where you don't automatically have a green pine background?  (If you find one let me know!)

So it was quite lovely to snap some picts of my BFF's kids in Utah Valley with the mountains and blue sky as background.

This was an extremely speedy photoshoot--we're talking like 15 minutes max.  We were on our way to the park and pulled over when we saw the bales of hay.

(glanced behind me to check on my little walker to see where she was--turns out she didn't much like walking in the grass so she just plopped right down).

And 5 minutes later at the park they looked like this,
dirty, flushed cheeked, and happy as can be~
