Introducing Baby Clare | Durham Newborn Photographer

I had such a wonderful time taking newborn photos for this sweet family earlier this month! Anna and Adam welcomed their baby girl, Clare, at the end of May. From capturing her cute little yawns to documenting the way they would each interact and hold Clare was priceless! There was so much love and tenderness, and I LOVED every photo that showed them holding and kissing baby Clare. It’s truly these details and moments that you’ll want to remember forever!

A fun fact about our shoot: we spent most of our time in their living room! It’s one of their favorite places to hang out and relax, but the living room also had AWESOME window lighting. I tell people all the time that the light is one of the most important things I look for before shooting because it makes a huge difference in photos! I personally adore window light because it creates a natural, organic look for portraits and is incredibly flattering and soft.

I seriously had so many favorite photos from this session—enjoy scrolling through them and big congrats to the Anna and Adam! So happy for you guys, and enjoy being a family of three!!

The Thorstensen Family | Durham Family Photographer

I absolutely LOVED taking family photos for the Thorstensen’s a couple of weeks ago at the American Tobacco Campus! I loved how Ethan was so cheerful and excited throughout the whole shoot, and I couldn’t get over how much he loved to laugh and smile! :) In addition, we captured photos of him and his dog, Max, and it was SO adorable. Max is 12 years old and was so gentle and sweet, and posed like a champ in front of the camera!

One of my favorite parts of the shoot was taking photos of Ethan playing with bubbles! It was so endearing to see the joy on his face—check it out for yourself below! We were also able to capture some father-and-son and mother-and-son portraits, and there were a lot of hugs and kisses :) I also made sure to incorporate a couple portraits of Andrew and Heather; I learned that they haven’t had portraits together since their engagement 10 years ago! All this to say, we packed in a lot of meaningful shots in this family session and these are memories that will certainly be cherished for years to come!

The Driskill Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

I had SO much fun taking family photos for the Driskill’s a couple of weeks ago. The Driskill family is one of the most relaxed and easygoing families I’ve ever met! Even though the forecast was saying that it was going to rain on our session date, that didn’t stop this family :) The day of our shoot was cloudy with some intermittent rain, but we were still able to capture some ADORABLE shots of the family and the children.

When the rain started to come down a little harder, we continued the shoot back to their home, which was thankfully nearby! It was funny because Audrey’s parents and family were having dinner when we got home, but they were so warm and welcoming to have us continue the shoot! We then captured some additional photos of the whole family around their beautiful home. From snuggling on the couch to playing with toys, the most memorable part for me was capturing how much the oldest son loved to jump on the couch (see photos below!). We then ended the shoot with a little dance party with his family and auntie!

It truly was an honor to capture these sweet memories for this beautiful family! Enjoy scrolling through the photos below!
