A Fun Family Session at Home | Hillsborough Family Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of taking photos for the de Jong family again! They are expecting their third child (another boy!) this summer, and I was SO honored to be able to capture this season of life for them before they become a family of five!

We took photos at their beautiful home, and it was so sweet and meaningful! As the parents were finishing getting ready, I followed the boys to the backyard to capture some candids of them interacting. The older brother LOVED showing his younger brother around, and it was so endearing! I especially loved the moment when he held his brother’s hand to help guide him around :) Another memorable moment was when the kids wanted to play in their dad’s car. I was so inspired by their excitement, silliness, and imagination and wanted to capture their laughter and smiling faces! I totally embrace organic and spontaneous moments during photo shoots, and love documenting kids being kids :)

We then spent the rest of the photo shoot in the playroom. I learned this family has a love for music (as do I!) and it was so sweet seeing Eelco reading a book to his oldest son. One of the books played music from Vivaldi, and my favorite moment was when his son started conducting when the music came on! The expression on his face was absolutely priceless!! We then finished the rest of the shoot with family snuggles, snacking on graham crackers, and knocking down blocks! :)

Can’t wait for baby #3 to arrive this summer, and enjoy scrolling through my favorite photos from this fun family session!
