Happy Valentine's Day!!!
I am so excited to be participating in a the Keepin' It Real blog series with some very talented photographers. This month's theme was "Real Love" and I have chosen to share some Valentine inspired pictures with you all. At the bottom of this post there is a link to the next photographer's blog in the circle. Please go check her out and see how she was inspired this month and you may just be inspired too!
These three little loves of mine have my whole heart I tell ya and we had so much fun putting together a photo Valentine's Day card this year! It all started because I wanted to recreate this image from 2014 :)
Although the 2015 image is bit more chaotic with a very mobile 13.5 month old I am still loving what we got and think we will need to make red wax lips our go-to for our annual Valentine's Day pics. Here's the digital version of our card that went out to the girls' classmates and our family.
I've been wanting to do a photo card for Valentine's Day FOREVER! and I'm so glad this year it worked out and the girls cooperated long enough to make it happen! Plus, how perfect are their shirts from The Measure for the occassion?!?! They have an adapted version of my favorite EE Cummings poem printed on them.
Ofcourse, we ended up with more pictures than we needed for the card and because I am just so in love with these girlies I have to share! Also, we had a super fun time getting to paint outside as their reward for cooperating for the pics (its one of their favorite activities!) so I kept the camera out long enough to capture that too since it was actually Clara Jo's first time getting to paint with her big sisters. As you will soon see she didn't quite know what to make of the paint, but had fun regardless :)
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and celebrate all those you hold near and dear to your heart on Valentine's and every other day!
Tilley thought she didn't make enough of a mess while painting so as soon as I said it was time to quit she two handfuls of paint and smeared it on her face....yep, that's our middle child for ya!
Don't forget to hop on over to the Kami Friday Photography's blog to see how she was inspired for this month's theme of "Real Love."

When a past client contacted me a few months ago and said she wanted to do a special 10 year anniversary shoot for her husband I was eager to hear more details about what she had up her sleeve and how we could work together to pull off a special shoot for her husband. She wanted to do a beachy wedding-ish shoot with her kids to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of her own beach wedding. I LOVED her idea to get her kids out on the beach and do a shoot that had a little bit of wedding photography flare but kept with my own style of lifestyle children's portraiture. I met my client and her sweet kiddos at sunrise at Wrightsville Beach one morning with her kids dressed in similar attire to what she and her husband wore 10 years ago for this special shoot. As an added bonus we were even able to have her little girl wear her mom's wedding dress at the very end for a few photos.
I am so in love with this session and so happy that I was able to help my client pull off this special surprise for her husband. When she received the gallery she responded that the images perfectly captured not only her children but she and her husband and if they had had a professional wedding photographer 10 years ago she felt like those images would have been similar. Can we say BEST FEEDBACK EVER!!!! Seriously, I am just so in love (I think I said that already, but I mean it!), and I hope you all love them too!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the "C" family! This was my second year capturing this family and their extended family while they were all together at Wrightsville Beach for their annual beach vacation. It was so nice seeing them again this year and meeting the newest addition to their family!
I truly enjoy extended family sessions and would love to document your extended family the next time you all are together :)
This past year has flown by and adorable baby Jack is already ONE!!! Do you remember him from his newborn session or 6 month session? I've loved getting to capture Jack over this past year and spend time with his sweet family.
