I have so much goodness to share from this incredible family session on the sweetest little homestead, but I’m feeling pulled to first share the black and white film images that I shot at the END of the session. Who says you can’t have dessert first? 😉 Stay tuned as I share several posts from this series over the course of several weeks this summer. There is just so much eye candy and love to be inspired by!
I met Rebecca and her daughter when I moved to North Carolina last year, and we instantly clicked because she was once a fellow Austinite, just like us! Everyone in her beautiful little family are very impressively musically inclined (and Rebecca has a gorgeous singing voice, too!), and they are just sweet as can be. When she told me she wanted to bring their instruments along for a session, I was so giddy and immediately knew where I wanted to photograph them just doing their thing. Coincidentally, it’s where we had our own family photos taken a few months back: Fearrington Village! I had been dying to do a shoot there since we moved here, but I was waiting for the right family to come along! It’s one of the most beautifully places around here, and happens to be just a few minutes away from us both! The environment suited them perfectly and we had so much fun. Her family and myself were a match-made-in-heaven for this session, because not only did we have a lot of the same interests and aesthetic tastes, but she believed in my vision as much as I did. I love photographing families in their happy place just having a good time with the ones they cherish. Rebecca and her family are actually moving to Chicagoland any day now (major sadface!), so I really wanted to get this blog post up before they skipped town. We’ll miss you, Rebecca! Thank you for being awesome!!!
