P Family at Childress Vineyards - Greensboro Family Photographer

I love getting to play catch up with past clients and this family is certainly one of my favorites. I cannot believe I have known them for a decade - back when we were both single child families. We met up halfway between Charlotte and Greensboro at Childress Vineyards - what a gorgeous location! If you haven’t visited the grounds at Childress, it’s definitely worth the drive and they have an amazing lunch menu.

Fall Family pictures are some of my favorites and we threw in a first Birthday update this time, too. I have to hand it to this mama because they are always so well coordinated with the outfits! Take note!

Here are some of my favorites from their session on a gorgeous September afternoon.

Simply You, E - Greensboro Child Photographer

March was the month for six month old babies with names starting with E!  So much cuteness in my house.  Baby E lit up the room one Saturday morning and it just made my day.  Six months is an age of discovery - babies are finding their voice, their hands, other people and their feet (my personal favorite).  It's so fun to watch them find so much joy in simple things.  If only we could hang onto that as we get older!  Such a great reminder to find joy in every day.

 

Prom 2018 - Greensboro Senior Photographer

At the beginning of March, I was asked to take some pictures of the youth from church before they headed off to  Prom.  I did not hesitate to say YES!  They met as a group before the dance for pictures and dinner.  I know I've said this before, but I really love spending time with teenagers.  Being that I am still squarely in the midst of life with little kids, I find being with the teens a breath of fresh air and it really makes me look forward to those years with my own children.

Teens often get a bad rep, but I'm not sure why.  If you spend time with them, you'll find that they are smart, friendly and excited about what's to come in life.  They're not yet run down by the responsibilities of adulthood but out of the silly childhood years - it's an awesome phase of life.  My hours with the youth at church each week and during my Senior sessions, I find are some of the most inspiring and joyful hours of my week.  

Take a look at how awesome and happy they all looked!  It was so fun watching them all squeal with delight and huge smiles as they gathered together.  (And because Mamas play a huge role in how these kids turn out, I always like to include Mom in my teen sessions.)

 

P FAMILY | Greensboro Family Photographer

My relationship with this family goes way back, actually it goes back an entire decade!  This mama and I met at a Mom and Me class at The Little Gym in Holly Springs, NC when our oldest children were just babies.  We have both lived in several states and homes since then and have added a few more kids to the mix.  Somehow, we ended up back in the same state and close enough that we can still spend some time together on occasion.  Lucky me!

The P family drove up from Charlotte for their session.  We met at the beautiful Magnolia Manor in Colfax.  It's a little, not so hidden treasure I stumbled across and the weather was perfection that afternoon.  Great day to capture these adorable smiles.

Can't wait to meet their new addition this Fall!  You can count on seeing some of that cuteness around these parts in a few months.
