Ahhh these two! I can’t believe it took me so long to blog this session because I am SO in love with these images. A little backstory: a few months ago, Stephany found me on Instagram and sent me an email asking about mentoring. She had just gotten a new camera and wanted to learn how to use it! I was so excited to have her over, and we spent a full morning chatting photography and life and Instagram — Stephany also mentioned that she was having trouble feeling excited about living in Cary, where they had just moved. Me: “Aw, this area is so great! Where did you move from?” Stephany: “Hawaii.” <insert laugh-cry emoji> Turns out these two have been all over the place and are wayyy cooler than me. Stephany is actually from Costa Rica! Seriously, go follow her on Instagram at @stephsalanel. Part of the reason Stephany wanted to learn more about photography is that she is a nanny for the most adorable little girl, and she already takes the sweetest most creative photos of her! I’ve so loved following along. Anyway, when Stephany asked me about a lifestyle session I was obviously like YES. She and her husband are absolutely adorable and so natural together, not to mention their house was gorgeous! They have since moved, which made these photos all the more special for them. Anyway, I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites from this cozy lifestyle session in Cary.
