Presley turned one this summer and her mama asked me to help them capture the moment with a photo shoot. I had seen some cute one session shoots and I wanted to put my own twist on it so we met out at West Point on the Eno in Durham and captured some great family moments.
We started with the family stuff. Reason one for this; this shoot was in July and it was HOT and HUMID. Typical for NC weather and even through all the bug spray I still got eaten up with mosquito bites. I have always been super sensitive to mosquito venom so even trying to protect myself is kind of a loosing battle. At least they didn’t bother my beautiful clients!
We did the family shots first so mom and dad weren’t super sweaty and then set up for some ONE shots! Combined together in one frame by me or by the mom in a three series photo frame the ONE shots are so adorable! Then we did some of just little miss. We then proceeded to CAKE and the family dog even got in on it!
This was the first time that I tried a bath session after the cake smash and I am SOOO HAPPY with how it went. Kids typically LOVE bath time and Presley was no exception. The bubbles, the water the entertainment; it turned out some really great shots!
Enjoy a few of my favorites from this Durham Children and Family portrait session!
