pilot mountain baby announcement

the session brief:

Jessie has been one of my best friends since high school. So when I got the Facetime call with the announcement that she was expecting a baby I got all the feels! Since she had already been planning a visit down to North Carolina to see us, I told her I knew the perfect spot to capture beautiful baby announcement photos.

Pilot Mountain State Park is the perfect landscape for photo sessions. It has beautiful, tall, golden grass at the bottom that shows off the mountain in the background. And once you get to the top there are breathtaking overlooks, rock boulders and trees that make for a dreamy canvas.

Fun fact about this session – we almost got caught in the forest fire that took place in November! We had gone on a little hike around the mountain after taking photos and it took a bit longer than we expected. Well, as we were driving down the mountain around 5pm, we saw all the firetrucks driving up. Turns out, a fire had started just a few minutes after we got off the trail!

Definitely a session to remember! And as long as there’s no fire hazard I highly recommend getting your photos taken at Pilot Mountain! So dreamy!

Before you know it, your kids will be grown, your parents will be older and you won’t be able to get that precious time with loved ones back. The good news is, you can freeze time with beautiful photos that you’ll be able to look back on and cherish forever.
