Holly Springs NC Family Photographer, sisters


Going to grandma and grandpa’s house seems to be so much fun… Not only because these grandparents love their grandchildren so much but because they have a swing in the living room! I don’t know about you, but this makes me want to hang a swing in my living room, or somewhere in our home. I just loved it! And it was so elegantly decorated dangling flowers and bells.

These sisters are so beautiful, fun, sweet and full of life. They made me want to be silly.. Well, who am I kidding, I was silly!

Sisters for family photography session

The weather on the day of their extended family session was not very cooperative and quite unpredictable actually. On this day, we had sunny sky breaks after torrential downpours and the humidity was off of the charts. We really didn’t know what to expect from one minute to the next. Fortunately the weather held off long enough for our session, including the ability to kick our shoes off and take some of the family portraits outdoors.

Although our primary focus for the session was supposed to be the grandparents and grandchildren, but I am thrilled we were able to get photos of a daddy and his daughters. The love, admiration and bond is so strong! Isn’t there something special between a father and his daughters?

As I mentioned in the blog earlier that day the weather wasn’t looking so good because of the significant amount of rain. But these girls were so brave and didn’t mind sitting down, even if there was a little rain left on the steps. They were so carefree at this point and having a great time. At first they were a bit apprehensive about the “woman who came to take photos” but by the end the oldest wanted me to stay. It is truly one of the biggest gifts about being a photographer.
