I was SO excited when Jessica & Daniel asked me to take their portraits before they moved to Indiana this summer. They specifically wanted to take photos at NC State University where they both attended college. I have to admit, as long as I’ve lived here (and my husband even graduated from State), I have never really been on campus. I mean, I’ve driven by… maybe even through it a few times but I didn’t realize how pretty the campus actually was.
Jessica also wanted a shot at this tree since one of their engagement photos was taken at this spot. After showing me the picture, I intentionally wanted to make it different AND romantic since these are the memories they will take with them as they travel to the midwest.
Perfect family portrait!! Jessica & Daniel brought along their two dogs, Lola & Calvin. What two little sweethearts!!
I just love working with animals. It’s rewarding when you get them perfectly posed…but it wasn’t all that easy! There is a fine line between getting a pet to look at you, and calling them to come running towards you!! Calvin charged at me…(Lola not far behind once he took off) and then kept going….lol…all the way to another dog at the far end of the lawn (so maybe it wasn’t all me). ;)
I must say, Jess came fully prepared for this shoot…and I was uber excited when she pulled out a can of red spray paint from her bag! How sweet!
