The "A" Family | Holiday Session

Yes, this adorable family is back!  You may remember them from this photoshoot last year, or this tea party.  I love these people---great chemistry and casual vibe.

We went to this historic plantation on Poole Rd, which was aw-summmm.  You have to go check it out!

The leaves (and weather!) were absolutely amazing.  Hasn't this fall been perfect?!?

We got so many great shots, trust me.  Everything was working in our favor--colors, lighting, weather...

I love how kids are so drawn to leaves this time of year.  They can't help but pick them up and gather a bouquet for you.

I never really paid attention to the sun before I started doing photography this past year.  I see light in such a different, magical way now. And it is so true what they say, some days you can just feel it.  This was my last photoshoot in North Carolina, and I'm so glad it went perfectly.  Perfect family, perfect golden afternoon. I'll remember it forever.
The southern sunshine was absolutely beautiful through my lens.

To all my faithful fans:
I'm no longer booking sessions here in North Carolina. We are moving this month out west to California.

Thanks for for the fun memories and beautiful photos.  And thanks to all you supporters who urged me to step outside of my other career and try this photography shindig.  It has been so fun, and such a blessing to do part-time while my little ones grow up.  I've truly loved every photoshoot and every person I've met along the way.

You can take the girl out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the girl...
so you know I'll be back a few times per year. Please continue to follow my fan page, and I will keep you in the loop if I do any future sessions in North Carolina.  In the meantime, if you would like a recommendation for a Raleigh based photographer, send me an email and I'll put you in touch with a few.

xoxo, Emily
