SUN FILLED MOTHER'S DAY MINI SESSION IN BREVARD

You'd never believe the torrential downpour that took place prior to this sun filled Mother's Day Mini Session at Silvermont Park. I'm learning quickly that in Brevard, NC it can by rainy one minute and sunny the next! I'm so glad the sun came out for this beautiful momma. Her sweet little girls hugged on her and made her feel loved!

I'm grateful that I was connected with The Family Place of Transylvania County, an organization where families can connect and grow. I had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful families and help support their wonderful cause by providing Mother's Day Mini Sessions.

BABY ALICE IS LOVED! | NEWBORN LIFESTYLE WITH TWIN SIBLINGS

Baby Alice was eleven days old the chilly spring morning that we met. She was determined to not miss a thing during our Newborn Lifestyle session together. Her bright eyes stayed open and I was able to capture some of her sweet little personality while she watched her brother and sister giggle and play close by. They absolutely ADORE her!

I met Alice's mom at East Carolina University and had not seen her in years. I was so excited to see her again and meet her beautiful family. Being welcomed into someone's home is always an extra special experience. Lifestyle sessions allow for natural moments to unfold in the comfort of your home, with dreamy natural light shining through the windows. After a little snack and some snuggles, Alice dozed off in her adorable nursery while I photographed her tiny features so her parents will have those memories forever.
 

DOUBLE THE LOVE WITH TWINS

I met Amber and Caleb at a Tree Farm when they were weeks away from welcoming their two little boys into the world. What a treat it was to be invited into their home and meet the boys when they turned six months old! They are identical but sported their own little individual personalities. They cuddled on the bed, showed me their precious nursery, and showed off their squishy rolls for the camera. I could hang out with these guys all day! 
 

TWINE AND TWIG | A VERY THANKFUL FAMILY

I'm very THANKFUL that I had the opportunity to photograph the beautiful families of Twine and Twig again. Their impeccable style, incredible kindness, and the cutest kids ever make them a joy to photograph! Check out the awesome behind-the-scenes drone video on @twineandtwigstyle Instagram that they put together of our session. Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" is the perfect song pick for the time we spent frolicking through the field. 

These are a few of my favorites!
 

MOUNTAIN TOP | FAMILY AT SUNSET

Exploring mountain tops and reuniting with friends are perks of my career that I do not take for granted. We waited for the perfect evening to meet at the mountain top summit. After exchanging hugs and meeting my friend's beautiful children, we shared laughs and took in the view. Aside from an awesome evening spent together, one of the things that I will hold close to my heart from this session is one sentence that my friend told me after receiving her gallery - "If for a second you ever second guess what you are doing, DON'T." I can't wait for my next mountain top adventure, and capturing memories for another beautiful family!
 

ON THE FARM | FAMILY AT SUNSET

This family session = when everything just falls into place perfectly! Thank you to Jenny, for finding the perfect location! We had a warm, sunny evening together, chasing down horses and twirling in the field at sunset. It was a pleasure to photograph your beautiful family!

 

HOLIDAY CHEER | FAMILY IN THE FOREST

Oh deer! Christmas is right around the corner and I'm excited to share my evening with this beautiful family.

I have LOVED receiving Christmas cards in the mail and seeing which pictures are chosen to adorn them. I have them all displayed in my office, and when I glance at them, they bring me back to the time we spent together. 

We had a warm fall evening together, and Annie and Lacey looked like Christmas fairy princesses with their tutus twirling in the sunlight.  Thank you for the opportunity to photography your family for holiday! Here are a few of my favorites. 
 

BERKELEY | SUNSET IN THE FIELD

Berkeley celebrated turning one with photographs in the field at sunset! She is the sweetest little girl and such a princess - she even wore a crown. This was the first time she experienced bubbles, and she was in awe! Thank you to Berekely and her beautiful mother for the opportunity to photograph this special time.

ELI + FAMILY | NEWBORN LIFESTYLE

This family = family goals! I was so impressed with how Aundrea and Michael manage parenthood with such ease. They welcomed the cutest little guy, Eli, to their family. Eli's siblings, Samuel and Hazel, were an absolute joy to spend time with! They built a fantastic pillow fort while I was there, and I enjoyed a private concert from Hazel. She's quite the performer! 

Photographing a family in their home is such an intimate experience. I love how the images will always bring the family back to not only the day the photography session took place, but remind them of other memories that happened within the walls of their home. 

Eli is lucky to be part of this special family! I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to photograph him during his first week.

INDUSTRIAL STYLE | THE FOLEY FAMILY

A smile filled my face so far my cheeks hurt, and my heart filled with joy. That's how I felt when I received a text from Teigan after sending her the gallery of images from their family session -

"Jenni, these are incredible. I cannot thank you enough! This is ten million times more beautiful than I ever could have imagined!"  

We spent a rainy evening together running through empty halls, peeking through oversized windows, dancing with bubbles, story time, and puddle jumping. The girls are free spirits and their awesome parents invited me to capture this fleeting stage of their lives.

"Some people feel the rain - others just get wet." The Foley family embraced our rainy evening and weren't the least bit worried about getting wet. Letting go and embracing the elements makes for the best memories.

SENTIMENTAL BRIDAL PORTRAIT | DAUGHTER WEARS MOTHER'S WEDDING DRESS

Nine years ago on a hot summer day, I had the privilege of watching a dear friend of mine marry her sweetheart. When she reached out to me with an idea for me to photograph her six year old daughter wearing her wedding dress, I jumped at the idea! Ironically, the day we chose to photograph Ali was almost just as hot as the wedding day was! It brought back so many special memories. Ali was the perfect little model, so excited to play dress up in her mother's wedding dress. Ali will display one of these portraits on her wedding day.

Thank you for spending the morning with me!

OWEN ON THE FARM | FAMILY OF THREE

Owen was a joy to spend the evening with at Aw Shucks Farm! He looked so handsome with his suspenders, and his hair styled perfectly :) We had the farm all to ourselves and he was able to explore the soda shop and run back and forth through the empty train car. I loved capturing his excitement over straws and apples, and watching his face light up with the sweetest smile! It's always a pleasure to photograph this sweet family.

CAROLINE | FAMILY OF THREE AT THE PARK

Freedom Park is one of Caroline's favorites spots! She is full of life and energy- she gleefully ran all around the park and showed us the best spots. We were lucky to have pops of colors on this beautiful fall evening. 

 

STERLING | FAMILY SESSION IN THE PARK

Sterling has the sweetest little personality! She greeted me with a big smile and eagerly chased and popped bubbles. We spent the morning together strolling through the park, sitting by the water, and duck hunting. Sterling found a few favorite leaves on the ground which she carried around for most of our morning together until she found the perfect home for them! It was a pleasure meeting Sterling and her mom, and capturing the sweet age of two.
