The Chambers’ | Family Time!

We met up with our pastor, John “Phud” Chambers, his wife Christie and their kids Jaycie (5), Charis (3) and Aiden (1) to take family portraits for their family Christmas card! We are interns at Phud’s church-plant here in Rock Hill, Remedy Church. We had taken Remedy’s Staff pictures back in the spring, however this was before we had mastered a good lighting technique for portraits and Phud wanted us to re-do his (he also had a tree branch behind him in his old photo that awkwardly appeared to be going straight through his head haha). Here are a few of our favorites!

The girls had never been to the garden before, and in a hysterical anxiety to explore, were running- at full speed- absolutely everywhere. I harnessed their enthusiasm by having them pick some of the spots to take photos as we made our way through Glencairn, and this was one of the spots they chose. They sat down, threw their arms around each other and just started saying “cheese” before we could even set up the lighting 🙂

Haha- Charis fell and scraped her knee while we were taking Phud’s Remedy Staff picture for the church website. She didn’t cry until Phud rolled up her pant-leg and she saw that she was bleeding (barely), and then she began screaming! Her face was just so priceless… I couldn’t help it!

Annnnd… voila! Phud’s favorite of his options for his new staff photo:

The Hairr Cousins | Family Time!

Our friend Whitney came to us and asked if we could do a session with her and her 3 cousins in Uptown Charlotte. Her mom and her two her aunts trade off each year taking all of their kids to get portraits done, for Christmas and this year it was Whitney’s Aunt Lisa’s turn. They wanted to do something different this year than the normal indoor studio stuff they’d always done in past years, and wanted some outside in the city. So Lisa, Whitney and her cousins Tyler, Jessica and Tucker followed us to Uptown and had a blast with them  taking outdoor shots and retreating into some of the high-rise buildings when we needed to dodge the rain.

The Ramirez’s | Family Time!

Edwin and Holly are awesome friends of ours. Melissa and Holly worked together a few years ago and even though they don’t work together anymore, they’ve stayed close friends. We enjoy our dinners with them and getting to know them! Back in July, Edwin and Holly expanded their family when their first child, Ava Elizabeth, was born. And now, Melissa and I are super stoked and proud to be Ava’s god-parents! We had fun with our friends snapping some photos of them for their family Christmas card.

My fave! Sorry Edwin for making you hold her up so long while we tried to get the lighting right. It was worth it though:
