Senior & Family Session in Old Salem, NC

So, I’m a tad obsessed with American history, my recent binge listening to Hamilton isn’t helping! haha!! So when we decided to go the Old Salem for this family session, I was super excited! Here’s a quick history lesson (because I can’t help myself). Old Salem is one of the founding towns for our area. Before Winston-Salem was a thing, there was just Salem, North Carolina.

It was settled in 1753 by German immigrants and became one of the first Moravian communities in America. Most of the original buildings still stand and continue to be revitalized. Old Salem has many events through out the year that include period actors and hands on activities for children. We enjoy the holiday tradition of the Moravian tea and service at Christmas time.

Ok, so why did this family choose this area? Well, Abbey will be attending Salem College in the fall! Salem College is nestled in the heart of Old Salem and uses a lot of the historic buildings for housing, classrooms and staff offices. But the residential side streets are some of the best backdrops for amazing portraits and the light was spot on!!

After all the cap and gown fun we took a walk down to a beautiful side street. This area is full of them, so it was difficult to choose just one! But, I love how the sun illuminated this family and the images I got had me literally squealing at the back of my camera! This impromptu family session was amazing!
