Happiness is … | Raleigh Family Photographer

Taking pictures of my own family 🙂

 I never got around to blogging my snow pics.  And now I’m kinda over it & happy the weather is warmer!

It is sad but true that I don’t take very many pictures of my own children these days.  So when I do, it makes me extremely happy.

Here’s a few snaps from my girl’s Cotillion ball last weekend.

A little bit late (school started Monday), but here are my babes.  6th, 8th & 10th grades.

The Making of Snow Goddess | Raleigh Portrait Photography

This was such a fun project with my daughter.

Here’s a little behind the scenes.

The day before the snow fell, we went for a walk in the woods.

We gathered our head piece materials & made sure the stump I knew of was still there = location!

We trimmed, we snipped, and were excited about all of the beautiful goodies we found in our field

(not shown – six golf balls and a dog toy!)

IMG_5820The we took some floral wire and tape, and made a ‘halo’ form to fit her head.  We used several layers so that we could ‘weave’ our nature items into it.

We also used a hot glue gun as needed.

It snowed that night, and the next day we headed out to the back field for photos.  It was c- o- l- d outside, but she didn’t care.

I am lucky she still likes to do these things with me 🙂

Growing up fast, wearing my warmest wool coat.

It’s a vintage Raleigh made wool coat circa 1960’s, give to me by my mother-in-law and VERY loved!

Did photograph her in the coat, but it distracts from the headpiece and the vision of this image.

Big sis was my assistant – most of the time holding the reflector, and a little bit of flash…

Here she is getting warmed up lol! (she’s not blind thank goodness)

Snow Goddess | Raleigh Portrait Photography

 I have been wanting & needing to do something creative.  Outside of ‘the box’.

It’s fun & helps me grow personally & as a photographer.

Snow days happen maybe once a year here in Raleigh.  When I heard to forecast for daytime snow, I knew this was it! The base for this creative project.

A  dreamy & soft fantasy type snowfall portrait.

Well, the forecast changed and we didn’t get our daytime snowfall, so I tweaked the idea I had a bit and couldn’t be happier.

.

Here are the images that resulted from our home made nature headpiece & my youngest girl modeling.

Post-processed slightly different than my normal style.  I like it, to me it fits the mood of the project.

I really like the look of b & w film

Did I mention it was in the 20’s outside?  My girl is such a trooper.
