Falling in Love - Anniversary Session
Mahnaz and Koushyar are so amazing! They are international students studying at UNC's prestigious business school. We first met about 3 years ago through friends of friends. And I'm so happy we did. They celebration every wedding anniversary with photos! So this is the 3rd time I've had the honor of capturing their every growing love.
HERE is the second time I took their pictures at the JC Raulston Arboretum.
But today, we chased the setting sun at Merritt's Pasture and went hunting for fall colors. It was so hard to pick my favorites! So enjoy these! My heart is so full.
I love these four sooooooo much. It's been a dream of mine to photograph in Merritt's Pasture at sunrise. It's no secret that I love Pride & Prejudice and I adore those amazing scenes where Keira Knightly is walking through meadows with dew heavy on the grass and the sun wraps around her gorgeous self. So, that was totally my inspiration for this sun filled family session.
This was actually the third time I've been blessed to take pictures of this amazing family. HERE's the first time at the NC Botanical Garden when Kai was really tiny.
HERE's the second time at Hank Anderson Park when Kai was a little bit older.
Today, he's the best big brother to the super adorable Ezra.
I'm so honored to capture memories for Landon and Jana and their beautiful family over the past 3 years :D
I was sooo happy when Nada contacted me to take portraits of their growing family! We ventured to JC Raulston Arboretum in the morning and all 6 of us chased butterflies and started looking for our first location the vast park.
One thing I've learned about family photography is to always be go with the flow. We planted in the first field we came to and stayed there the whole hour! It turned out perfect. The wise Ahmad and Nada brought snacks and entertainment so we were able to set up a recharge base for the kids which allowed us to get every family member combination. I love how the siblings t-shirts all match!
Ahmad was soo incredibly energetic with his kids, I was so lucky to capture to stunning candids. It's so clear they love their dad! And Nada was positively glowing with her beautiful newborn. Those blue eyes! And her pink dress matched pink flowers we found! My heart.
I love the energy and gentleness this family has. They're my new heroes.
