The McCallister Family | Raleigh, NC Family Photography

Amy and I have been working on scheduling this session for a couple of months now. Her family just moved into a new home in December that is absolutely FABulous!! I am so glad that we waited until they got settled because the new house was beautiful! I love old homes that are renovated to make them new again but still retaining the old character! It was murphey’s law that Bea missed her nap the day of our session, so Amy was worried about the pictures and Bea not acting herself and smiling. I told her, that with eyes as gorgeous as Bea’s, she doesn’t need to smile all the time! 🙂 Am I right or am I right? Here are a few from their session…

I absolutely LOVED the view of downtown Raleigh from a overpass near their home! The view was AMAZING! The family asked me if I would mind taking a short walk to grab these shots and I said, “Would I mind?! That would be SWEET!” 🙂
