Back Yard Family Time

This family contacted me for family photos, in the winter.  Who would have thought that our day, while chilly…was much warmer than the average February day.  When I got to their home and began talking to the kids I was quickly shown a fort that their son had built.  It made the perfect backdrop for some of their family photos.blog-post2

These kids were too cute and funny!  I love how he’s semi rolling his eyes at his sister after she’s being silly!  And their individual photos are perfect, they rocked the camera.blogpost1

This gorgeous couple also had a little announcement to make…

We finished up our session out at their family fire pit with some toasted marshmallows.  The Fire wood shed was built by the man of the house and made a super cute addition to their family photo memories.

Little Boy Blue

Their fall maternity photos were some of my favorites and I just couldn’t wait to meet their little boy.  Matthew was such a sweet baby  to have in the studio after the holidays!  blog1

Since he was born a little before christmas we did decide to do a small “Christmas-y” set up with him too.

Christmas…

As this year comes to an end I just wanted to wish every one a Merry Christmas!  I hope Santa was good to you all this year.  I like to think I was very good all year and thats why I got a new Kelly Moore Bag.  Now let me say…I just made a post regarding Kelly Moore Bags.  I have one already and it has def seen better days, I’ve taken it EVERYWHERE with me.  Its been stuffed full of camera stuff, kid stuff, and everything else a mom keeps in her bag and its held up great but its taken a beating.  The last thing I was expecting was a new one…but it wasn’t just any bag.  My bag design is getting replaced by different newer designs so my hubby jumped on it just in time.  Its beautiful, new, smells good 🙂  And where my old one was a mustard yellow, this new bag is a beautiful Green.  Its beyond perfect and I love it so much.

Can you see all that padded room that comes in these bags?  That middle slot holds my camera and a lens on each end as well as my wallet in the front pocket and enough room in the back pocket to hold an iPad mini.  Plus it has tons of storage on the outside.  2 side end pockets, a big zippered back pocket, and 2 front zippered pockets.  Its pretty much fantastical.  If you’d like to check them out they are still having a great sale until the end of the year.  Get yours while you can!

Christmas Sessions 2016

I LOVED all my Christmas Mini sessions this year.  This year I added in my new Olivia Location for quite a few sessions like the Rustic Mini’s and the Story Time Sessions.  I cannot wait until the Olivia House is fully open for the new DT-Photography Studios next year!

I’ll start with the tree farm sessions, most were rained out or rescheduled to the Olivia house location because of super cold weather and little ones…so I only had 1 family this year at the tree farm.  I always love the tree farm sessions, they are some of my favorite of the whole year.

And I also had the Rustic Outdoor sessions at the Olivia House.  They were perfect for those wanting that perfect Christmas Card Photo!

The Story Time Sessions were LOTS of fun and I think all the kids had a great time with them.  I loved seeing them all in their Christmas Pajamas!

I have to say that even this Christmas has been one of my busiest yet!  All these sessions I will savor until next year…

Photography Gift Ideas…

Now this post isn’t like my normal ones, but after asking if you would like some suggestions for holiday gifts I thought “Hey!  Why not!”  Why keep all this great stuff to myself  🙂 Photography gift ideas are great for that special Photographer in your life or just for yourself if you LOVE photography.  Over the years my hubby and friends have gotten me some great stuff and I wanna share that with you!

I’ve found some great items that are all under $25…what could be better than that?  Maybe that they can all be bought on Amazon and if you are a Prime member there is still time to get any of them before Christmas.  You can click on any photo or highlighted word and it will take you straight to the amazon item which I am an affiliate with!

We’ll start with a few of my favorite gifts that I have received in the past couple of years.  One of my long time friends that I met in Germany, Melissa, bought me the cutest camera scarf.  I love it so much and wear it all the time!!

My husband for Christmas last year got me a few camera necklaces…nothing expensive but he loves the fact that I am a photographer and thought it would be a great way to show people what my hobby is.  I have gotten more conversation starters with these necklaces than I have any other ones I wear.

A few things that are really popular right now are the Camera Lens Coffee Cup.  So many people love the fact that you can drink from a cup that looks just like something you would normally be sure to keep drinks away from!  But aside from the Lens Cup there are regular coffee cups with photographer phrases on them along with super cute t-shirts.

Lastly I’m going to share with you a few great camera straps.  Now I know I said I would keep everything under $25  however my very favorite one is a little over.  Below it is another alternative to keep it under $25 so keep scrolling to see those.  I’ve had the Scarf Strap now for 3 years and counting.  It’s super comfy and stylish!

Remember you can click on the photo to take you right to the item and you can even see multiple patterns that they have.  There are so many cute ones!  Below I am linking  another alternative if you don’t want to spend that much on one but want a cuter version than the stock strap that comes with your camera. There are even more stylish simple ones that are perfect for the dude photographers in your life or if you like a more natural look without all the foofoo-ness.

So now that I’ve shared a few things with you that are perfect gift ideas or just things for yourself, I’ll consider doing more of these!  Be sure to comment on the post if you are interested in more ideas from me!  I know that New Years is coming up and who doesn’t like organization?!  I love it but certainly lack it.  Keep an eye out for my  before and after office/desk area in January.

Fall “Glow”

This mama and soon to be dad were simply glowing!  Not just because of the gorgeous fall sunset but because they are about to welcome a baby boy into the world.  I loved their session.  Everything about it, the location (now my new favorite spot) their outfits, and their love for each other.  So sweet, these 2!blog1

Can we talk a little more about this location?  Its simple.  Very simple but it has everything I love for a session.  Great sunset, trees, gorgeous weeds in wispy pinks, hearty golds, and fluffy whites…and then there is the dirt road thats perfect for making you stand out against the white rocks that make it up.  Its perfect, it really is my new favorite!

The Beach

This year we were able to make it out to the beach twice!  We visited Top Sail when I had a session for a friend and again when we drove out to Wrightsville Beach for a day with our family.

Top Sail has to be our new favorite beach, its quiet and not as busy as most beaches on the east coast that we’ve been to.  I was taking photos of of the boys when a sweet couple came by and asked if they could take a photo of me with my family for us.  OF COURSE!  I hardly ever get to be in our own photos so I loved that they asked.  I even had Brian just get a shot of me and the boys because I don’t have many of those.beach-blog1

But I have to say…aside from hunting for shark teeth on the beach, we love watching the boys play in the moonlit water right after the sun sets. The colors of the sky this night were magical!

And then there’s Wrightsville Beach.  This was our first time there but we loved it and the town.  It was quite cloudy and overcast most of the day but once the sun started to set we got some beautiful color!  And there’s really nothing more beautiful than a sunset at the beach.  Am I right?
