{Raleigh NC Family Photographer} A Beautiful Baby Girl at Raulston Arboretum

June 20, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

It's no secret that JC Raulston Arboretum is one of my favorite locations to use in the spring.  What I love the most is that every time I go, something different is blooming.  When I can, I try to arrive early and walk around the arboretum, just enjoying the plants before I meet my clients.  It's a wonderful place and I've been visiting the gardens for over 15 years.  

Of all the sessions I love to do at Raulston, my favorite has to be babies, especially those that are sitting up.  This is a great spot for 6 month sessions.  There are plenty of clean and beautiful little paths, benches and other things for babies to sit on, crawl on, and explore.  There are plenty of low growing flowers that can be photographed with the baby.  I also like it because it's stroller friendly and doesn't require a lot of walking.  

Take a peek into this adorable little girl's session.  We had her newborn session back in October and did this session when she turned 6 months in the spring.  She was such a happy baby.  I really enjoyed getting to see her and her family again.

{Raleigh NC Family Photographer} Summer Evenings at Sugg Farm in Holly Springs

June 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Sugg Farm is a little hidden treasure tucked away in Holly Springs, a suburb of Raleigh, NC.  I've been shooting sessions here for quite a few years.  There was a period where I had stopped doing sessions there.  Construction of a neighborhood adjacent to the park had eliminated several of the most beautiful spots in the park.  It made me sad and I grew bored of the park.  But one evening I was at the park with my son taking pictures of him for his 6th birthday and it was like we had rediscovered the beauty of the park.  We explored all kinds of paths and nooks and corners of the park that I had never seen another photographer venture into.  It's now one of my spots for photography sessions.  

In the summer, I especially love the park because during certain months, there are meadows of grasses and wildflowers that grow.  It's hard to tell when you will find them there but from what I've noticed, they seem to get mowed some time each June.  I was lucky on this evening to find the tall grasses growing in a field, moving gently to the breeze.  

The family I met is one of my favorite families that I met about a year ago when I did a newborn session for their little boy.  A year later, here he is turning a year old and full of energy.  He was such a happy little guy and seemed to enjoy all the special attention.  Big sister shared the session because she was celebrating her 3rd birthday around the same time.

This little boy and his sister sure enjoyed playing at the park.  There were plenty of little flowers to pick and fun things to climb on.  The meadows were so much fun to run through.

This has been one of my favorite outdoor family sessions so far this summer.  If you are interested in a family portrait session or a session to celebrate your little one's first birthday, I know many beautiful locations just like this in the Raleigh area.  I book family portrait sessions year round, and am now booking summer and fall sessions.  I serve families in Raleigh, Cary, Apex, Holly Springs, Fuquay Varina and surrounding areas.  Do you have questions about family portraits?  Send me an email at erica@ericacourtinephotography.com and we'll discuss your vision and what package might be best for you.  

 

 


{Raleigh NC Newborn Photographer} An in-home session for a baby boy

June 13, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

What can I say about this baby boy?  He is absolutely perfect and has the most adorable head of hair.  He came to the studio recently and was so laid back.  This family was so beautiful.  I'm so glad that they decided to have a few family portraits done.  I always encourage parents to be in some of the pictures with their new baby.

{Raleigh Newborn Photographer} Pretty Girl in Lavender

I am so excited to share this beautiful baby girl's session.   She was such a doll and so easy to work with.  She came to the studio for her newborn session with her mommy and daddy from Cary.  She was such a pretty little baby and very easy going.  We had a lot of fun using lavender and sea foam colors during her session.

Lavender was such a pretty color for this baby.  We wrapped her up in a fabric with a deeper shade of lavender and put a fancy little headband on her.
