As a children's photographer in the greater Raleigh area, there is something so magical about children's summertime photography sessions. Sweet little ones running around barefooted, picking flowers, and chasing lightening bugs. As I set up for these kids, thunder rolled in the distance and I was concerned we may not get through their session. But the storm passed just as we needed to get started, and we ended with a beautiful night! I've known this family since their oldest was just a few days old, and I've watched their family grow. Every time they're in front of my lens, something magical happens.
