Hey Ya’ll!  So yesterday, we had a meeting with a super fun bride.  She suggested that we meet at the state farmers market restaurant.  WHAT???!?!?! There’s a state farmer’s market restaurant and I didn’t know about it?!?! Well, what can I say.  This country girl is chagrined.  I had a just-like-grandma-made biscuit, followed by a country ham omlelet.  I was full all day.  Our bride and her mom were delightful – we laughed through the whole lunch and I *really* hope we get to photograph her wedding.  Working with fun clients is the best!!!!!

Well, since school is out, Mr. C came with me on this “work trip.”  He was a champ, playing on the ipad, watching a movie and coloring.  He and I even got  a chance to do some exploring and meet the sweet Wise Family from Wise Farms in Mt. Olive, NC.  C and I checked out the veggies and bought a ton!!!  Last night we had the most wonderful sautéed squash for dinner. I can’t wait to make pickles from the cukes picked just yesterday!

pinthisimageA couple of times per year we like to offer mini sessions!  These sessions are shorter in length and the theme is predetermined but you get digital files (normally we only sell entire DVDs of sessions) AND you get them at a great price!  I am SO thrilled about this summer’s theme – lemonade stand.  What kid doesn’t love setting up and selling lemonade?!?!?!  We have a beautiful custom-built stand that we’ll set up in a Chapel Hill area field and your kids can squeeze, pour, drink and sell to their heart’s delight.  And we’ll get great shots in the process.  The best part?  They’ll hardly know they are being photographed.  They’ll just be having a great time.  Sessions are 30 minutes in length, and they include both the session fee and some digitals/prints.  There are no substitutions because of the nature of the sale, but there are lots of options to choose from!

Here are this summer’s offerings:

$150 – 30 minute session, 5 digitals

$200 – 30 minute session, 5 digitals and 5 5x7s

$250 – 30 minute session, complete set of fully edited digitals (10-20) and 5 5x7s

$350 – 30 minute session, complete set of fully edited digitals (10-20) and a  5×5 heirloom book

To book your session, call us at 919-810-6700 or email alex@gleeandbliss.com

My wonderful guy Ben came up with a brilliant little two day getaway for us recently – pop up to the NC mountains for a little hiking trip.  Well the trip was anything but relaxing, but it was beautiful and we did have a ton of fun:)

Here’s a few of the images I grabbed along the trail.  That camera and lens were heavy – but these shots made every ounce worth carrying:)

I hope you enjoy…

One of my favorite things to do is to photograph new people and new places.  Okay, so Spence’s Farm, isn’t totally new to us.  I’ve chaperoned a bunch of field trips there and about 100 years ago, Alex worked there.  But, neither of us had photographed a session there.  So, when one of our recent school auction winners contacted us about doing a lifestyle shoot at Spence’s where her son rides, we were thrilled.  Though we only had just a very few minutes, we were able to have some fun playing near the chickens and turkeys and got to capture a bit of big brother riding.  Enjoy! XOXO, Corey

And who can resist a field of wildflowers????  Not me, it’s one of my favorite things about the North Carolina spring.

I love this time of year.  Wildflowers are blooming, the grass is high, the skies are blue and if we can just keep the rainclouds away, the weather is perfect for photography.  So, before it gets hot, take us up on our May Day Specials and get on the calendar!  You can email us at corey@gleeandbliss.com or call 919-810-6700.  Can’t wait to hear from you.  Please note, the $150 May Days Special can be applied to any family or children’s photography session only.  Happy Spring! Corey
