Fall Photos at Umstead Park | Raleigh Family Photographer

I had the honor of photographing the Phillips family again, this time at Umstead Park in Raleigh! A little fun fact about this family—I met Chris and Claire when my husband and I did our premarital counseling through the Summit Church, and they were our mentor couple! We’ve known them for a little over two years now, and they truly are one of the most down-to-earth, candid, and open people we know.

Taking family photos with three kids can be a handful, but these kids were AWESOME! One of my favorite moments was when we captured photos of each child holding up a number that has their age on it! It took a bit of coaxing with the youngest child to participate, but once his parents mentioned ice cream, his face instantly lit up and we were able to capture a smile from him :) The shoot ended with a big cheer from everyone, and it is probably my favorite photo of them because it truly captures their energy and spunk! Enjoy scrolling through the highlights!

Raleigh Family Photographer at Umstead Park | The Pelissero Family

Fall is the peak of holiday family photos, and as a Raleigh family photographer, I am SO excited to share some of the beautiful family photos I've been taking this season! The smiles and connection from this adorable family were so precious! I remember it was a chilly day and there were a TON of people at Umstead Park. Despite the crowds, we were able to snag some scenic areas to take family photos. We took photos around the wooded area as well as by the lake...and I'm telling you, the LIGHT was absolutely stunning! If you know me, you know that finding the BEST light is so important to me.

During the shoot, we started out with some family portraits, and then I had Jennifer and Craig take a few photos of just the two of them together (p.s., I always like to do photos of just mom and dad in every family session!). Their interaction with one other was so cute, and I LOVED Jennifer's giggle when Craig snuggled in close to her! :)

We also took lots of photos of their children, and they were all so adorable! Their sweet girls were so kind, and their baby brother was such a comedian. Towards the end of our session, we were taking individual portraits of each child, and their little brother, James, kept making his "Thor" face! It was hilarious, cute, and sweet all at the same time!

Enjoy these beautiful family photos!
