FALL FAMILY MINI SESSIONS | THE N FAMILY | RALEIGH DURHAM NC CHILD AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, January 8th, 2016

I had such a blast with the N family, who attended my fall family mini-sessions.  For those not familiar with my mini-sessions, they’re shortened sessions perfect for an updated family photo or new pictures of your children.  I hold them in the fall, and if you’re interested in being the first to know when they’re announced each year, please send me an e-mail and I’ll add you to my mailing list!  But back to the sweet N family!!  Their two girls are so hilarious and full of life!  I absolutely loved meeting this family and capturing some new photos for them.  They couldn’t be any more perfect!

FALL FAMILY MINI SESSIONS | THE B FAMILY | RALEIGH DURHAM NC CHILD AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, January 8th, 2016

This is another family who came out to my fall mini-session event. Sweet little Isabella is two now, and did my Baby’s First Year package back when she was itty bitty!  I was so excited to see her again, and she really hasn’t changed much.  Still super cute and fun!  I really adore this family, and I love getting to capture them!

Friday, January 8th, 2016

Next up is the sweet and gorgeous M family, who I first met when I photographed little James as a newborn!  Handsome little James was right about to be a big brother at his mini-session, as you can see!  And lucky me got to meet that cute little addition just a few weeks after their family session.  I swear I have the best job!!  These guys are just too adorable and so sweet!

Friday, January 8th, 2016

This adorable family is the P family, and they attended my fall family mini sessions! Their little guy, Camden, is five months old, and I was lucky enough to shoot his newborn photos.  I was excited to see him again.  He is so adorable!  And such a happy, smiley, perfect baby!  We had a great time, and I can’t wait to see him as he gets older!  Here are some of my favorites from this family’s mini session!

Friday, January 8th, 2016

Another lovely family to share with you all today! I’ve known the G family for what seems like forever. 🙂  And they were one of the first families I photographed 6 years ago when I started my photography business.  I was so delighted that they participated in my fall family mini-sessions.  I love their photos, and I think they capture what a fun family this is!!

Family Mini-Sessions | RALEIGH NC CHILD AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, January 8th, 2016

Here is another beautiful family who attended my mini-sessions in the fall!  I’ve known Betsy ever since I took newborn photos for her daughter a few years ago, and then our sons became friends at our pre-school.  Betsy is also a local photographer, and I was honored that she asked me to do family photos for her!  They’re such a gorgeous family, and I really enjoyed capturing them!  Here is a little peek at some of their photos!

Fall Family Mini Sessions | RALEIGH DURHAM CHILD AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Well, a few years ago things here got really busy and crazy, and my schedule started filling up with family sessions and I’d find myself having to turn away newborn and maternity clients when my schedule was already booked up with big kids and families.  And that really hurt my heart.  My absolute first love in photography is babies, there’s just nothing else that compares for me, and I know it’s one of my callings in life.

So in order to really focus and devote my time and my schedule to what I love the most, I started turning away the family sessions, and took my business in the direction of all things baby — which has meant only maternity, newborns and baby’s first year.  That decision has really been the best thing for me and my business, and I’m so glad I did it.

BUT, that has also meant turning away family sessions with clients who’ve gotten older and graduated from my Baby’s First Year plans, as well as turning away my friend’s families, and everyone else who has asked over the past few years for me to do family photos for them.

Well, this year I decided to add a new addition to my offerings.  Seasonal mini sessions for families.  They sold out VERY quickly for the fall, and I was so overwhelmed at the response!  For those who missed them or didn’t get a slot, I plan to offer them at least twice a year, or maybe more depending on my schedule.

The next family mini sessions will be available in spring 2016.  If you’d like to get on my mailing list and get first dibs at a family mini session spot, please email me at melissadevoephotography@gmail.com so I can add you!

I did TONS of mini sessions and I’m not sure the best way to blog ALL of these, so I figured showing a small sample would be best.  Here is a very sweet family with their four kids.  They were so much fun!

And yes, these were aaaaaaall from a MINI SESSION!!  🙂

Will’s One-Year Session | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC BABY CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER

Friday, December 18th, 2015

This handsome little dude is Will and he’s recently turned one year old! He’s graduating my Baby’s First Year plan, which always makes me a little sad. I’ve enjoyed seeing him so much during his first year, and watching him grow and change.  From his itty bitty newborn stage, to sitting, and now walking aaaaall over!  I swear once little boys learn they can walk, it’s not long until they’re running and exploring and we’re chasing them!  I had so much fun capturing Will at his one year session. He’s such a happy, great little boy!

Gavin’s Six-Month Session | RALEIGH DURHAM NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

This precious little guy is Gavin and he’s a part of my Baby’s First Year package.  I was so excited to see him and his sweet family again for another portrait session.  You may remember Gavin from his amazing newborn session, and my has he changed!! He has the greatest little personality – so happy and curious.  And it was so sweet to see how much his parents adore him.  They are such a beautiful family, inside and out.  I feel lucky to get to capture this time in their lives for them. Here is a peek at their portraits!

Arden At Six Months | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NC BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

A few weeks ago sweet little Arden came back to my studio for her six month session.  I can’t believe this little sweetheart has turned six months and is sitting up all on her own!  Back at her three month photo session, all our photos were of her laying down or being propped up.  My, what a difference this new talent of hers makes!!

I had so, so, so much fun planning out this session with her Mommy, who is a dear friend of mine.  We ordered new backdrops and flooring, her Mommy shopped her heart out for adorable outfits and accessories.  IT. WAS. FUN.  Having two little boys, I don’t get to shop or dream about girly stuff too often, so this was really exciting for me.

I was sooooo pleased with how the vision came to life for this session.  Every detail was  perfect, and it all just worked so well. Between the leg warmers, those ballet slippers (oh my, cutest thing ever!!), the pink tutu…. it was all beyond what we’d hoped for.  And I think the willow tree backdrop is one of my new favorites!  I ended up with so, so many favorites from this session!  I can’t wait until Arden’s next session!
