No location is more personal than your home. Homes are bursting with the unique personalities of everyone that lives there. Any photos that are taken in the home are just that much more meaningful because of it. That’s exactly how I felt while photographing this at home couples session. Every corner was filled with unique items that really tell their story. Alayna is a super talented photographer here in North Carolina, and not too long ago her and her husband actually exchanged vows and got married on this very property! How cool is it that they got married on their own land!
Now a days, Alayna and Casey are in the midst of some big life changes! After their wedding day and years of renovations to this adorable home, they decided to sell. Although it’s bittersweet, I’m excited to see what their future holds. In honor of all their hard work and all the memories they have made over the years, we decided to do an at home couples session. One last documentation of their lives here before the big move.
This session was also extra special because we got to include their dogs! Their golden retriever has recently developed some special needs and they weren’t sure how much longer they were going to have with him. So we made sure to get lots of snuggling photos with him :) My favorite was towards the end of the session when we were way across the property getting some sunset portraits of Alayna and Casey, when Mojo (their golden retriever) trots up behind them with a toy in his mouth (as he had been doing during most of the photos). We stopped sunset portraits and decided to spent those last couple minutes capturing snuggles with Mojo. I love that they now have these photos to remember this fun time in their lives.
