Maddie’s Outdoor Fall Senior Portrait Photography

The hubs – aka Ryan – photographed Madeline (Maddie) Roberts’ senior portraits in Blowing Rock NC on October 6th this year, as she’ll be graduating in the spring in 2018. We’ve been photographing this family and their successful dental practice Brushy Mtn Dental since 2010, which means we’ve watched Maddie during her transition from cute kid to young woman.

This wraps up the 3rd senior in the family of three kids – er young adults. We previously photographed Paiton and Quinton. Mom Timberli wanted photos every couple of years to capture the growth and changes in her three kids and you guys. Like her siblings, Paiton and Quinton, Maddie has transformed into a stunning young lady and amazing person.

Below: Maddie 2010, 2013 and 2017. See what I’m talking about? One minute she’s a barefooted girl, cute as the day is long, and now she’s elegance and grace. Wilkesboro NC Outdoor Senior Portrait Pixels On Paper Photographers Photo

We’ve been planning these sessions all year with Timberli who wanted each of her seniors to be photographed during different seasons. Paiton was Spring, Quinton was Summer and now Maddie in Fall. The Roberts’ family home now showcases a collection of 24″x 36″ canvases of each senior.

Here they are … and parents everywhere sigh at how fast it all goes by.  Now we’re hoping to convince parents Chris and Timberli they should do a Winter session to complete the seasons. We love this family and can’t wait to see all the other milestones they have ahead of them and that we hope to photograph.

Gavin’s 6 month baby portraits

Just a couple of weeks ago, this little half-year old showed up in our portrait garden for his 6 month portraits and he was kind enough to bring his Mom. He even let her drive this time. [He enjoys a Harley, but that’s another blog.] Jessica and little Gavin Mendieta visited with us and I shot her son’s portraits and, man! do I wish there were photos of me crawling around on my hands and knees taking photos at 38 weeks pregnant. Alas, our minds were on the job…. you know – professionalism and all that.

Jessica and I met years ago at girls beach trip getaway and have been friends ever since. I was so happy to get to be the one to photograph Gaven’s adorable gummy smile and capture him at this age, because we all know how fast it goes. I’ll blink and he’ll be getting his senior portraits taken.

Normally all smiles and flirtatious, on this day Gavin was a bit more serious when the camera was on him. We pulled out all the stops behind the camera including Ryan jumping up and down and running in circles, which he was going to do anyway. Might as well do it for work. <I’m ducking as I say that. HA!!> We randomly discovered that what Gavin enjoyed most was Ryan’s very loud whistle. Hey, any port in a storm and it worked!

Because our sons will be so close in age, Jessica is kindly giving me boy-mom advice and a ready shoulder and I’m so grateful.

Wonder Women Part II

Yes, this deserved a second blog. It’s not because I’m a new mom or because Mother’s Day is around the corner (it’s not, so stop sweating because you haven’t bought flowers or a new car for her………. it’s May 13th, by the way). It is just a topic that deserves more love and a second posting. As I looked through all the photos of moms, I was so moved by how different they are while still having this common thread of mother love and strength, care and joy, giving and enjoyment of their kids and their families.
So to that end – I raise a glass again to mothers of all kinds, shapes, ages and types.

Booking Christmas Portraits | Studio and In Your Home

If you haven’t already booked and are considering it, I’m hoping you’ll schedule your family’s holiday portrait session with us. This year, we are offering two options from which to choose. The first are the in-home documentary sessions just as we did last year. We shot several of these and we, and they, LOVED the experience. We’re excited to do it again this year. In-home sessions can be scheduled from the time that a family’s home is decorated (or being decorated) until December 10th.
Last year we spent time with the Minick family, the Hollands, the Pierce’s and others and it was better than we expected. If you’re decorating and think you want to go for it, I encourage you to!!

The other option is to come to the Pixels studio which we’re decorating for the holidays.

Wonder Women | Moms

Lately, we’re thick with superhero movies and remakes and I see no end in sight. Comic books characters, the heroes and villains who distract us from their real life counterparts, are an amazing escape. They inspire us to be bigger, to be the people we want to be and they give us a sort of boost.

With the recent release of Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot (and Oh Holy Crap, if you haven’t seen it, rent it asap!!), I’ve seen and felt a surge in girl power and we can never have enough of it, in my humble opinion. As I await the arrival of my son, motherhood and moms have been on my mind. They give so much, carry so much, love so much, share, guide, hurdle, forgive, strive, turn the other cheek, increase the joy around them and I’m so grateful for my own mom and the examples of other mothers I know.
Here’s to the power – the near superhuman power – of mothers. I thank God that He protects and helps us as we create little humans while holding on to our own identities.

I could write and share mom photos for weeks – and just might – but for now, I’ll just ask that you do one thing for me please: if you can, call your mom today. Call your gramma today. Call your mother-in-law. Call a mother you know and tell her that she’s a card-carrying rock star… that she’s seen and appreciated beyond words. If you can’t for whatever reason, take a minute to think of a mother you know and say a little prayer or meditation of gratitude. It won’t go unheard.
