Christmas Time….What?!

Today, I was reminded that my vibrant, independent, and brilliant 4yr old is normal. LOL! Little Mr. T (That’s what I’ll call him) was not going to let me take his picture – at all. Seriously, the moment I pulled out the camera, he let me know that he was not going to smile nor was he going to look at the camera. Well as you can see – that changed real fast. I always have a few tricks to get just what mom wanted. First, I snapped a quick picture and let him see it right away. Lesson learned – he asked to see pretty much every picture after that. LOL! The second trick was to let him feel free to make funny faces…….so he could ask to see right away. LOL! One rule = for every silly face, there had to be a smile in the next frame. Thanks to mom for helping with that rule.

We were able to venture through the property of the Mordecai house and easily change the background thanks to the beautiful buildings — and various trees for Mr. T to climb every few minutes. But I’m thinking it was all a trick. He took some of the most natural and handsomely fierce shots. Just take a look below.

Finally, it’s that time of year again. Why not book a holiday mini (complete with sharable digitals and printing packages). All mini session investments are $65. That’s over a 50% savings. We look forward to hearing from you. Que the Christmas music while we prep the Turkey for Halloween. LOL!

How perfect is this sweet face?

Common Grounds

This couple met at a coffee shop, so it only seemed right to photograph them there. He was about to be deployed, so she wanted some pictures of them together.  We started at the cafe they met, then wandered around downtown Apex. Best of everything to this couple, as he will be overseas for a number of months yet, serving our country.
