It’s springtime! I’ve had that scene from the movie Bambi running through my head where all the flowers are blooming and the baby animals are being born and birds are chirping because they’re “twitterpated”… Does anyone else remember that? No? Go watch Bambi again. It’s so great.
Anyway, I’m so excited about the warmer weather and longer days. Doesn’t the sunshine just make you happy? After being stuck inside most of the winter with various illnesses, morning sickness (hey, P.S., I’m having another baby!), and snow, it’s so refreshing to throw my windows open and breathe in that fresh springtime breeze! I’m also itching to photograph more so I’m excited to open registration for my Spring Mini Session event, happening Sunday, April 10th!
These sessions are shorter than a normal portrait session making them perfect for getting a good set of updated photos with your family, fiance, spouse, baby bump, or pets without taking up an entire afternoon!
Sessions are Sunday, April 10th, and include…
– 20 minutes of session time with Alexa
– an online viewing gallery of all final, edited images accessible for three weeks
– your choice of 10 edited hi-resolution images with a print license, downloaded straight to your computer!
– additional images and products available for purchase through the online gallery
CLICK HERE for pricing and details, then follow the “get tickets” link to check out the time slots available!
Also, make sure you’re following Alexa’s Photography on Instagram… I’ll be giving away a mini session time slot at some point in the upcoming week!
Save the date! I’ll be hosting an afternoon of mini sessions on Sunday, April 10th! Registration will open this Friday, March 25th. More details to come soon :)
Continuing with “part two” of Caroline + Chris’ gorgeous summer wedding!
These two were so relaxed and easygoing and really didn’t want any super pose-y, dramatic photos but just some snapshots of them together as newlyweds. Well, these two are so dang gorgeous and in love that their ‘snapshots’ turned out to be some of my favorite portraits ever! We followed up our portrait session with an incredible tented reception in the front yard. A five-course dinner was served as guests cried and laughed at the toasts and clinked glasses in agreement. During dinner I got to steal the bride and groom away for a few minutes of portraits at sunset and after the cake was cut we moved to the totally transformed backyard for a reception that lasted past midnight! There was an incredible live band, more delicious cake, super fun dancing, and Bojangle’s biscuits as a midnight snack.
I’m sure this wedding will go down as the favorite of many many guests. I’m so thankful that I got to be a part and especially loved my few minutes of one-on-one chat time with Caroline + Chris during our sunset portraits. You guys are fantastic and I hope we get to meet again in the future!
P.S. Caroline has a food blog that is full of fun and healthy recipes (and mouth-watering photos to go along with them! Check it out at yolo-sole.com (You only live once, so let’s eat!)
