Family Sessions | Styled Mini Shoot

Tickle, cuddle, smile....whatever it takes for the perfect family photo!

This was a first for us on styling family sessions, and we have to admit that it was just the cutest thing! Seeing the parents and kids interact with each other to get the most adorable candids was such a fun thing to witness. We kept it simple for this scene with placing our vintage sofa among the trees and shady forest.

Once Upon a Tea | Styled Mini Shoot

We truly enjoyed channeling our inner little girl to come up with the set for this scene which was full of whimsy and pretty details!  The wooded surroundings inspired us to make the moss lampshades and book page butterflies to add in some DIY elements. The iron bed frame that we covered in ivy was our main focal point to create this woodsy tea party. We had the best time watching the little girls get so excited about their tea time!

Let's Set Sail | Styled Mini Shoot

Treasure map, flags, AND a boat....oh my! 

If you want to see kids really get into character, put them in a "boat" and let them think they are the captain of the entire sea! Each kid that was a part of this scene went all out having the best time sailing around the forest. Our DIY treasure map and flags definitely kept them occupied to capture some great shots.

A Wild Rumpus | Styled Mini Shoot

Into the woods we go...

We had such a fun time watching the little kids play in this scene, as if they were actually camping in the woods. "A Wild Rumpus" pulled our heart strings just a bit! We love the mix of all the wooden crates, the gathered stick teepee, and our camping essentials that just made for a perfect setup. Our DIY stick bow and arrows were a definite hit among the little boys. We think it's safe to say that we won over a few of the kiddos with this scene!

A Sweetly Vintage Styled Bridal Shoot

It was a very bright and sunny day to style a bridal shoot for the gorgeous Miranda! She is just as sweet on the inside as she is gorgeous on the outside, so working with her was a true treat!  Her love for old records and vintage style made for a fun design for this shoot. While Miranda had a specific style in mind, she wanted the scenes to be kept on a smaller scale so her mother could still see her beautiful face among the decor. We had a blast being present during this shoot and getting to be around her parents and now mother-in-law! Her dad loved seeing his baby girl sitting on his other prize possession...the vintage black Chevy!

Congrats Miranda on becoming a Mrs. this past Saturday! We couldn't wait to share your bridal shoot, and we wish you and Drew a lifetime of happiness together!

Thank you Ace Photography for capturing Miranda's bridal shoot in a perfect way and for hosting the shoot at your amazing new venue, Drakewood Farm! Everyone should go check out Drakewood Farm for your next wedding or's beauty is gleaming with amazing Southern charm.
