Truthful Tellings: Let's Get Real no Family is perfect : North Carolina Photographer

I take a lot of photos, clearly that is obvious. I post a lot of photos too, but not half as many as I take, atleast not when it comes to my own family's photos. My child is one, that means he's a mess. Literally & figuratively. He doesn't understand much but he can do lots, and lots of stuff he definitely isn't supposed to.

For Mother's Day I REALLY wanted to get dressed up in our vintage clothes and do family photos. A client had gifted me an adorable vintage outfit for Phoenix and I wanted to make sure it would fit so we had to do photos now. The day comes , so excited. Its smoldering hot so we decide to wait til the afternoon, by then the hubby is tired the child is irritated I'm overwhelmed. Not so exciting anymore right? Now I know what my clients go through. So we load up get down the road realized we forgot the tripod run back to grab it and head out again. Get to our destination and joe top button won't button so that means no bow tie. Great.
Can't find Phoenix's suspenders that went with the outfit ( found out i dropped them when getting the tripod and we ran over them) so no suspenders, no bow tie. Oh and Phoenix's tan shoes were home on the counter. 

I felt like a hot mess, to be fair the whole situation was one and I hadn't even tried to take a photo yet. & then we tried. Valued effort for sure but the child was not about it at all. he would not stand with us or sit with us. HE just wanted to play and run around and climb the vines. It was a big old blasty blast for sure, atleast for him. We gave it multiple attempts tried all the tricks and got some photos. He settled down at the end and sat while we read him a book, but not sure it was the book he was interested in because after his attentiveness we looked in front of us to see a wonderful snake had decided to come join us and was about a foot from us and of course Phoenix was all smiles about that. 

I guess my point is, anyone can fake it, facebook is all about that. Showing perfect lives and photos, But the reality is , my family is just as much of a shit show as yours. My child is insane, he doesn't sit well for photos and he isn't always happy. My days aren't always good and my husband isn't always enthused about the million photos I make him take. But thats okay, being perfect isn't all its cracked up to be or all that fun I'm sure. I am happy to have these photos in which I show that my husband and I can get a kick out of our child being obnoxious instead of getting mad. He is a kid after all and he has the whole world to explore, who are we to stop him?

*** our good photos are below but the few outtakes I posted are pretty great.

Our 1st Family Christmas Photographs ! The Camacho Christmas Elizabeth City NC

A HUGE thanks to Powell's Roadside Markets for allowing me to photograph not only our photographs but all of my mini Sessions this year as well! 
I am super stoked with our photographs this year! Another HUGE thank you to the wonderful Fae & Jen Williams for being our button clickers instead of trying to use a tripod and remote for our family shots!  It took four people holding the camera at different times to get these. From me setting the camera up and photographing the baby, then the baby & Joe, Then Joe taking the camera and getting the baby and I , then fae taking the camera to do the family day time shots & then finally I got the lights set up and practiced a few shots with Fae  & then handed JEn the camera to get a couple of us as a family.
Whew yes it is really that much work but literally our session and theirs were doing within 40 minutes. We kill it , even in the CHAOS!

This year has been amazing and this first Christmas as a Mom has been spectacular thus far & I'm going to write a long mushy blog for you guys about that so for now, HAPPY Holidays, Merry Christmas, & all the JOY to you and your loved ones this Holiday Season. 
Remember what its about, whether to you that is Religion, Love, Giving back or Family. Relish in what makes this season beautiful for you & yours.

The Sciallo Family : Edenton North Carolina Photographer

I have known the Sciallo family since I was in highschool, a young edgy and beyond different girl who seemed trapped inside someone who felt like they needed to fit in. Rebecca changed all of that. Getting me involved in The Vagina Monologues was the best thing that ever happened to me and was really a huge turning point in my life. I felt like I blossomed into who I truly was giving away all care of what people thought. This woman changed my life. 

Being able to photograph her family for the first time was an honor and an amazing experience. She stands for so much in my eyes and I truly look at her with so much respect for everything she has done and will do so for her to choose me to capture her family's memories meant so much to me. 

Lets show this beautiful family some love !

Our little adventure, our biggest dream come true : The Camacho Family Lifestyle Session

I'm not a sappy person, I don't write sappy posts or get all in my feels. 
But just know these two are my life. My soul. 
Them & my dogs are waht get me up and out of bed in the morning.
They are what keeps me going.
My little family is perfect in so many ways I can't believe most days they are mine.
Each day comes with new experiences and our adventure as a family for the past 3 months
has been literally a dream come true. Through the tough moments and no sleep. The days we ate one meal because there just didn't seem to be time to do more than that. The weeks of not letting him out of my sight and the nights of never letting him sleep alone.
This adventure has just started & it's already one hell of an experience .

Click the photographs below to make them bigger.
I hope you enjoy a peak into our life & our love.
