A family photo session at Carolina Beach, North Carolina by Thuy Minh Hussey

A chilly, rainy afternoon isn't enough to scare away photographers! We ventured out to Fort Fisher, in Carolina Beach, NC, so I could take some of Jessica and her beautiful family. Jessica is the owner of Jessica Horton Photography, based in North Carolina (check out her beautiful work here). Baby Kate was a trooper, she even managed to nap at some point! Of course, her parents made sure to keep her all bundled up. When the sun briefly came out, we were able to "unbundle" her.

A mother daughter picnic at Salubria, Virginia by Thuy Minh Hussey

In France, we love picnics, even in Paris! We love getting together with friends and family for coffee or a bite, and when Spring's here, it's so nice to lay a blanket in a grassy area, with some good wine, cheese, bread and a plate of charcuterie (I know it seems cliché, but it's true!).

Catherine from Davis and Main Style loves the concept of a picnic too, and created this family friendly setting, with some beautiful touches and outfits, like her daughter Elliot's whimsical waist cape and body suit.
