Meet Moose the Corgi! | Raleigh Family Photographer

I recently took family photos for this beautiful family with their dog, Moose, the corgi! When Pauline got in touch with me, she share with me the emotional journey they had with their dog, Moose, this year. In a nutshell, Moose fell twice and had to get two back surgeries, and they almost lost her. After a lot of hard work at rehab, she is amazingly walking again! With everything that has happened this year, they wanted to take photos to celebrate Moose and to have pictures of the three of them together that they can cherish for years to come!

The weather was crisp and cool the day of their session, and there were a lot of other families at NCMA with their dogs—it was like a party! When we started our photo shoot, I was amazed at how Pauline, Alex, and Moose were so natural and comfortable in front of the camera. Usually it takes about 10 minutes for most people to warm up, but they were SO relaxed and it totally shows in their photos!

Moose was also such a gentle and calm dog, and had the most adorable smile! Pauline taught me that if you say, “chicken,” Moose will turn her head towards you!! It was SO cute and worked every time! Also, when we were taking photos of just Pauline and Alex, Moose kept getting in their shots. We would place her next to me, but she will end up walking back towards them—it was hilarious! See for yourself below! I think it just shows how much she loves them :) If you’d like to follow Moose’s journey, check out @m00sethecorgi on Instagram!

The Parker Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

I love fall because of the gorgeous colors, cooler temperature, AND it’s the season where you get to wear cute and cozy outfits! I recently had the honor of capturing family photos for the Parker family, and my goodness, they looked absolutely STUNNING with their navy and red color scheme (I especially LOVED Ashley’s red sweater—it added a touch of warmth and vibrancy to their photos!).

I remember when I chatted with Ashley before the session, she expressed her desire to do family photos each year because as a mom, she rarely gets to be in pictures. Also, her boys are at such a fun age and she wanted to capture this moment in time! She wanted to photograph the sweet spirit of her children because they won’t always be this little. Who else can resonate with that? It’s so true and this time is so fleeting!

We had such blast during the session despite the weather being a tad windy. We took photos during the golden hour, right before the sun was setting, and the beautiful light gave a nice warm glow to their photos! In addition, one of the things that stood out to me during their photo shoot was the way their oldest son interacted with his younger brother. He was SO gentle, kind, and patient towards his younger brother! We were all doing a variety of things to get his little brother to smile, and he was so eager to help. He certainly did help us capture some adorable smiles! :)

Enjoy getting to know this family and scrolling through some of my favorites!
