The Rhoades Family- Downtown Raleigh NC

Sometimes, Justin and I just like to take our boy dog, Ray, downtown with the cameras and hang out! Its such a blast just getting to snap whatever and whenever we feel like it! We decided to go an enjoy the warm fall air and take Ray for a much needed trip out of the house. We ventured to the legislative building and on to Fayetteville St for a cocktail at Anchor Raleigh. So here we are in all of our glory, The Rhoades!

He's taller than me and so this is a little bit of an awkward angle haha If this were a session I would have made it happen, but since it was just us, I think its perfect how it is (just like I think he is!)

I love spending days with our little family, especially now that Ray is getting old on us. Every moment is perfection with these two and moments I get to cherish. Some day when boy dog isnt with us, we will have these portraits to look back on and I am so thankful for that!
