This family was SO. MUCH. FUN. to spend a day in New Bern, NC with!!! I just can’t wait to get to the good stuff, so I’m going to dive right in!
We started out at their home, getting to know each other a bit and grabbing some shots of some of the kids’ favorite toys!
What little girl wouldn’t swoon over this bedroom?!?! (And can I admit to being jealous of Abigail & Catherine’s wands from Olivander’s? SO fun!!)
You know you are dealing with a seriously cool family when they each of a pair of customized Chucks!!
We headed to Tryon Palace downtown for a few formal family portraits…it is such a neat place!!
Between diaper changes and soccer practice and Capri Suns, I know how easy it can be for parents to lose track of each other in the day-to-day chaos of family life, so I just love, love, LOVE how Dare and George laugh and snuggle and so clearly appreciate and support each other! LOVE it!!!
One of my favorites from the day…
As a reward for being such awesome kiddos and putting up with the million and two shots we took at Tryon Palace, we headed next to an Oliver family favorite, The Cow Cafe, for some dinner followed by the world’s biggest ice cream cones!!! These are, hands down, my FAVORITE photos from the session!! You want your kids to relax and laugh and have a ball? Get them ice cream cones the size of their heads!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Olivers!! I had SO much fun with your fantastic family!!
