So, I can’t spoil the fun by sharing our gone “fishing” shoot in Bolin Creek this week, but I am thrilled with these first shots we got.  Who can resist a family as sweet, cuddly and tickly as this?!?!  Not me.  And the light was delicious! We had a great time.  Enjoy your sneek peek, Woods Family! There so much more to come! XOXO, Corey

My kids are home with me the vast majority of the summer and I must admit that it’s Alex that keeps the office moving! During these summer months, I’m up early and late to edit and I try to photograph in the evenings when my children are with their dad.  Without Alex, it would never work, but so far this summer, so good!  I’ve tried to plan weeks of fun/learning organized around themes.  Our first week was “Garden Week” and we learned TONS about pollinators, plant reproduction, creepy crawly things, the water cycles and more.  Here’s a glimpse into our week.  XOXO, Corey

 

Everyone’s favorite part of the week were our two outings.  We went to the State Farmer’s Market for a scavenger hunt.  Walker also interviewed a farmer for an article she’s working on.

At home, we did all sorts of fun things.  We made art using fruits and veggies as our brushes and we also painted acrylics of pollinators.  We did some measuring to make cupcakes and C used his fine motor skills to decorate.  :-) Bug bowling was a super fun way to teach subtraction and C enjoyed it the most.  We made terrariums with succulents chosen by the kiddos and we wrote letters about our own gardens to family across the country.  It was tough for B, and took two days of work, but he got his letter finished and was thrilled to get one back from his Aunt Ruth!

My favorite part of our week was our trip to the NC Museum of Natural Science’s Prairie Ridge Ecostation.  We went on a wonderful guided family walk through the ecostation, learned a TON about the prairie and also plants indigenous to North Carolina.  We learned the difference between a damsel and a dragonfly, learned to identify milkweed and now know how important it is to the monarch butterfly.  We saw several different bird species and learned about the communal ways of the purple martin.  We even saw a tadpole that hadn’t yet lost it’s tail.  I HIGHLY recommend this nature walk.  Cathy, who led our walk, was wonderful and we will definitely be doing it again!!!!pinthisimage

pinthisimageEveryone who knows me well, knows that the Fourth of July is my favorite holiday.  In part because our club does such a wonderful job with it.  But also because it’s the one holiday that’s packed with fun AND requires nearly zero prep on mommy’s part.  Yippeee!  In celebration of some low maintenance fun, we offer our best deal of the year.

This year, our fourth of July special includes a full session (lifestyle or concept), an 8×10 and 2 5x7s.  That’s a $470 value for $99.  Yep!  That’s as good as it gets.  That’s fireworks, cold beer and sweet watermelon.  So, enjoy your fourth.  And take us up on this amazing offer. To book, you must email us at corey@gleeandbliss.com no later than 7/4 at midnight.  You’ll get simple paypal instructions back.  Also, your session must be scheduled and completed no later than August 31st.  Unfortunately, we are not able to make exceptions for this fantastic deal, nor are any substitutions available.

That’s it.  A great deal, pure and simple!  Can’t wait to see who we’ll be photographing.  XOXO, Corey

{Please note: some concept session may involve additional fees if substantial props are required.  So if you want to shoot on a helicopter, it won’t be $99.  :-)}

Our latest happy couple-to-be, Julia and Dan, love the great outdoors.  And they already have cute little canine babies!

On a long walk in the woods, Dan enlisted the help of their chocolate lab to propose to Julia.  Next year they’ll tie the knot in full glamour, but for their engagement shoot we wanted to pay homage to their sweet proposal.   So, they donned their hiking boots and we all went out in the woods for some rustic romance.

Corey and I tossed in a couple of vintage props and let the sparks fly.  Cheers to this beautiful couple and their upcoming exchange of vows.  We adore them and hope you love this little glimpse of their engagement session!
