Shoots & Ladders is headed to the farm!

Amanda + Brent  |  Claire  |  Lindsey  |  Millie  |  Photographers  |  Shoots & Ladders  |  

It is almost time for another Shoots & Ladders set and we are mixing it up this time!  This year’s spring session will take place outside on Old McFaye’s Farm!  Your children will have a so much fun holding freshly hatched chicks and petting sweet baby bunnies!  Parents, while this set is primarily for the youngsters, we would love for you to be present to share the fun, we’ll also need your help supervising your children with the animals while we take photos of them.  We might even have a couple of surprise up our sleeve, maybe a hayride!

We will be scheduling each session in a rotating set around the farm.  Each family will be assigned to one of our photographer and will be photographed in various locations on the farm.  We are only scheduling two days of shooting, and it’s sure to fill VERY quickly.  So, email us to book right away!




$99 session fee includes images of your children during a 20 minute mini session (up to 3 kids – $25 per additional child).  Please note that as the sessions are outdoors, in the event of rain, we will have a rain date assigned so be sure to block the rain date in your calendar as well when booking your session.

location: Old McFaye’s Farm (must have an appointment, no walk ins)

dress: you will be on an actual working farm, so please do not bring anything you absolutely can not get dirty.  You are welcome to wear fun spring outfits, or dress in your cutest farm attire.  Anything from a colorful sun-dress to overalls and cowboy boots!

We’ll present the images (4-6 proofs) to you online within two weeks of your session.

Available session times are listed below (those marked through are already taken, please remember we have 4 photographers shooting so if you have booked a time and it is not marked through, we have more slots available during that time):

Monday, March 25th (RAIN DATE is Tuesday, March 26th)

PLEASE NOTE:  Although our sets typically take place in our downtown Wilmington, NC studio, we will be at a different location, on Old McFaye’s Farm.  Your session must be paid when booking.

*Payments are non-refundable.  Choose your time carefully, once it’s chosen it’s reserved just for you.  Be punctual.  Showing up late gives you less time on the farm, and could make you forfeit your shoot.  Prints sold separately. Batteries not included.

Corina and Gordon are such a sweet, easy going couple.  We started the session with their “baby” Sparky, who is as lovable as can be!  The yummy fall foliage was a perfect backdrop for Corina and Gordon’s session.  These two are the most effortless couple I have ever had the pleasure to photograph, as they are not only both gorgeous, but are also so natural with each other.  We decided to shoot on the grounds of Landfall, as this is where Corina and Gordon met each other for the first time!












Corina and Gordon, it was great getting to know a new set of friends!  We wish the world of joy to you both, and can’t wait for your wedding in April!

    I do not know Gordon, but I’ve known Corina since she was a child. What a beautiful young woman you have become, Corina. Gordan is a lucky man, and he’s not too shabby either! LOL!

Rhonette and Chris first connected in college during track practice back in 2005. They enjoy going to the beach, working out and spending time with their beloved pup, Bailey. We quickly learned that Chris preferred to be anywhere but in front of the camera, but with Rhonette by his side to flirt and flash her beautiful smile at him, the nervousness seemed to disappear. The entire afternoon was wonderful and ending at sunset by Greenfield Lake was the perfect finishing touch.












Rhonette and Chris, it was great to hang out with you for a little while! It was fun getting to know you both, seeing the giant hill where you used to run, and sharing moments from your life!

Elisha and Chris are a sweet couple getting married later this year. I quickly noticed the difference in dynamics between them while on their engagement session. Elisha was a quiet beauty with a sweet disposition who fit perfectly in the arms of Chris, a jovial guy who loved to laugh and hold Elisha tight. Together, they were a duo who were up for anything as long as they could do it together. Brent and I had a great time getting to know them and can already tell the wedding day will be great!












A big thanks to Elisha and Chris for a great afternoon! We look forward to seeing you in June!

Last year around this time we made friends with an amazing woman named Farmer Faye. She invited us out to her farm, Old McFaye’s, to meet her newly born lambs and take Amanda & Brent’s maternity photos.  I loved all of the animals, so shortly after, we returned to the farm so that my nephew, Gavin, could experience the fun. Recently Faye told me they had new lambs born and she thought of us and the maternity shoot we did almost a year ago.  Genevieve LOVES animals and the lambs were only six days old, so we knew this would be the perfect opportunity to capture her 9 month portraits. We headed out to the farm, this time with friends in tow to experience the fun. Thank you Faye for always being such a gracious host and allowing us to visit, we love you!

Our next Shoots & Ladders Session will be at Old McFaye’s Farm so stay tuned for details this coming week! Here is a little sneak peek at so much cuteness my heart can hardly contain it.

    OMG! Those are some of the cutest pics i’ve ever seen! The ones with the baby lamb laying on the blanket with Genevieve & Keen are just perfect. Love!

    The cuteness is too much. I love that the baby lamb seems to be completely enjoying him/herself. Adorable!
