{styled session} :: fuquay varina outdoor baby photography

I recently did a styled session with Nancy of Little Lassies (Facebook link) who has made a maternity gown for me before.  This time, she was trying out a new tee pee prop and asked if I could shoot some pics of it.  Of course I always jump at the opportunity to do something new and cute, so I told her I'd meet her there with a baby :)  Luckily, I was able to find a really cute baby on short notice ;)  I love this tee pee! fuquay varina child photography

And, PS.. those Bradford Pear trees.. OMG. I will be back again next year.. they were FABULOUS.. minus the smell.. Be on the lookout for early March 2016 mini sessions at this gorgeous location!!!

{M&M} First Birthday Cake Smashes :: Fuquay Varina and Cary Child Photographer

I think it is fantastic to see babies grow up!  These two boys are some of the cutest and I love that I have gotten to see them change, smile, crawl, and develop their own personalities!  The conclusion of all baby packages is a One Year birthday shoot, and it can include a cake smash session.  Since these boys were turning ONE in the month of July here in N.C.. what is better than a bubble bath outside following a cake smash?!  Happy Birthday, handsome boys!

Max, Max, Max.. why are you so adorable?  I can't even handle your cuteness.  I have had the pleasure of photographing Max and his family since the beginning of this year, and his 1 year session is coming up! :) Here is a look back at this guy:

Good 'ole Riley.. complete with her mom's cuteness and her daddy's personality!  I can say that because we're friends :)  Riley is the perfect example of how with a little patience, what you get is worth the wait.  She usually takes a while to warm up to me and most of the time tries to hide when she sees me and my camera.  But, eventually, she'll start to have a good time and we get some cute pictures!

Her daddy put her up to that!

This is my favorite!  She was about to knock all the letters down!  Love the smirk!
