Fall to photographers is April to accountants… our busy season.  And, it makes sense.  In North Carolina, autumn is absolutely perfect with the leaves changing colors and the air turning from hot and humid to crisp and comfortable.  Pumpkin spice everything, tall boots, football season…I.Love.Fall..

So, it is only fitting that most people choose the fall to have their family portraits taken.  For the past few years, I have offered mini sessions during a weekend or two in the fall – usually of two different locations.  The first year, I had a few takers.  The next year I needed to offer an additional day.  And this year, I sold out 4 days in record time.  Wowza.  I was floored.  This year I also rented some lovely props from a local company (Greenhouse Picker Sisters) to give my sessions a little  extra something special.  For example, check out this amazeballs image using their vintage couch, crates, and accessories.  I am so in love and am kind of jealous that this isn’t my family..

With all of this being said, I am not scheduling any more family sessions this year.  Thank you to everyone for their continued support of my small business and I look forward to working with you in the future 🙂  ~Amy

Lily’s mom is one of my Belly to Baby parents.  This family decided to have a lifestyle newborn session for a more relaxed, photojournalistic approach.  Lifestyle sessions happen in your home approximately two weeks after baby is born. I utilize elements of your home to capture this brief moment in your family’s history.  Families enjoy lifestyle sessions because it is more like real-life.  There is no extensive posing and the images are more natural.  I try to capture real life moments.  Luckily, Lily was born in the summer so we took advantage of the NC heat and even got some family shots outdoors.

Camden turned ONE!  This little guy was all smiles.  We even took advantage of the warm summer weather to rinse off all of the icing from the cake smash portion of his session.  First birthday sessions are some of my favorites — sometimes I haven’t seen these little guys or gals since they were newborns, and yet, some of their facial characteristics haven’t changed a bit!  I love seeing all my squishy newborns become toddlers.  First birthday sessions can include a cake smash.. and for Camden’s older brother, he got in on the action too..

Welcome to the world, Margo!  This little girl has been blessed with an amazing family that I had the pleasure of hanging out with during her newborn session.  Her big sister was a little camera shy but we managed to get some adorable pictures of the two of them.  I love getting family shots of the newborn with mom and dad because they are only that little for so long!! I had a hard time deciding which of these images was my favorite because she rocked out her newborn session and we got so many good ones!  I think they might take the cake for largest newborn gallery yet! They followed the newborn session prep guide I sent them almost to a T.  It doesn’t make the session go perfectly, but it definitely helps the chances!fuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newbornfuquay holly springs newborn


Newborn sessions are best done between 5-21 days so that they are nice and sleepy and can be curled into the cute poses.   Amy only accepts a few newborns each month, so schedule your newborn session early in your pregnancy!

The last time I saw Blakely was when she was teeny weeny in January (see post here).  Mom wanted some updated pictures of this cutie pie and a milestone mini session was the perfect chance to come back and visit the studio!  Milestone mini sessions are only 30 minutes in length which tends to be just the right amount of time before babies tire out! Since they are called “milestone” mini sessions, they are best used to capture the milestones in a baby’s first year.. like sitting up or standing! At six months old, Blakely was sitting up so well! Most sixth month old babies are just learning to balance sitting up so there is quite a few times where they topple over.. but not this girl! She was all smiles for her session!fuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographerfuquay photographer holly springs photographer apex photographer
