Valentine Mini Session with Samantha Brooke Photography

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! Back in January, we did a Valentine mini session with Samantha Brooke Photography. This was actually the first professional family photos that we've had taken in a really long time (except for when Samantha came to our house during quarantine to snap some fun front porch pictures that showed what we had been up to at home). I met Samantha through Instagram many years ago and realized that we live in the same small North Carolina town! Back in 2015, she took family photos as she was starting up her photography business and I have absolutely loved watching her grow. Go check out her Instagram account to get a glimpse at her incredible talent! Samantha is an incredible wedding photographer but she is always amazing with families and children. She always makes us feel so comfortable!

Like I've mentioned here on the blog before, I am a big fan of Valentine's Day and heart shaped everything. I have always loved this holiday! But really, I just love holidays in general. I love a theme and I love something to celebrate. When Samantha posted that she was offering Valentine mini sessions, I knew it would be so much fun! Also, my husband is great sport and totally got into the photo shoot as you will clearly see below. We definitely had a good time!

See what I mean?! He was making us laugh so much and I definitely think this would make an excellent Valentine's Day advertisement. Haha! For our outfits, I wanted to keep it casual and comfortable... things that we actually wear on a regular basis. I also saw a sneak peek of the backdrop so I wanted to keep our looks pretty simple. My adorable heart tee from Madewell was the starting point in putting together what we wore. I started with that, grabbed everyone's favorite denim (my jeans are the Perfect Vintage from Madewell), a heart tee for Olivia, a gray Madewell tee for Julianna, a comfy striped tee for Josh, and then neutral sneakers for us all (mine are these court sneakers from Madewell). Both of the girls wore clay earrings from our friend Clay by Kelly and I wore my new heart shaped earrings from Madewell (they are the perfect everyday earrings)! I love how our outfits came together and how they felt very authentic to who we are.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
