When Abbey contacted us about doing a lifestyle session at their home in Durham before they move to Nashville for the year, we were thrilled. She was excited to have her family photographed in their first home together and we had so much fun getting to know them there!
We absolutely loved our time in the their sweet little home. Abbey and Mike welcomed us into the space they created for their newest member, Wilson. Their sweet Bernese Mountain Dog, Maggie, was around too, but was so scared of us that she spent most of her time figuring out how she could avoid us!
We started out their session in their bedroom which was filled with light and a desk for Abbey’s paint materials. She’s a talented watercolor artist and sells her work on Etsy here! But Wilson’s arrival six months ago and their move to Nashville this summer has kept them busy!
We also photographed Wilson in his nursery. Isn’t this the sweetest little room? We absolutely loved the squeals he made when in his crib — he gave us the best smiles while reaching for his toes!
We also took a few shots in the kitchen, where Abbey and Mike often fuel up on coffee and good food. It looks like Wilson’s going to grow up to be quite the coffee drinker himself! Our time ended on their back deck, and we finally got a smile out of Maggie! Wilson did such a good job at this session — we could not have asked for an easier baby! But we were just as impressed with the love that Abbey and Mike clearly have for each other and their family. We’re so glad we got to witness and document it!
Abbey and Mike, thank you so much for having us in your home! We loved meeting you two and Wilson and Maggie and we hope you have a smooth move to Nashville this summer!
