I always have a great time photographing this family. For our spring session we decided to shoot at American Tobacco in Durham NC for a fun urban look.
American Tobacco is great for families with kids. There are plenty of great spots for photos that are contained so that they can play around while I shoot. Boys really seem to like it since they can run and jump and do all things boy in a safe environment. It’s a terrific place in the winter months when more country like settings are just too brown and dull for photos. Kids have a great time playing on the train and the steps crossing the waterfall. The best part of this spot is that it’s also home to several restaurants including Mellow Mushroom so you can always grab a bite to eat afterwards. And if you time it right you might even be able to catch a Durham Bulls game across the street.
I love hanging out with this family. With 2 boys there is certainly never a dull moment. I’ve been photographing them since Zac was a baby he’s got the biggest blue eyes! His brother is always ready for fun and for photos. He’s a great listener and I love it because he never runs away from the camera. These 2 had a blast running around the grounds and hanging out. Mom kept it casual for these guys and finished the session in some really cute t-shirts. While there were several photos from our session I loved, here are my favorites from the day.
