Welcoming Baby Boy 3 | Durham Newborn Photographer

Documenting every season of life is so precious because the moments of today are so fleeting! I had the honor of capturing newborn photos for the de Jong family, and it truly was a pleasure to work with them again. They welcomed their third baby boy at the end of summer, and it was so fun capturing them as a family of five!

One of my favorite parts of the shoot was capturing the interactions of the older two boys with their baby brother. As seen with the first photo, when I asked them all to look at their baby brother, they did look at him, but also poked him! It’s these candid moments that I find truly depicts real life! However, we did capture some sweet moments later on and it was wonderful to see them interacting with their baby brother :)

We ended our session in the boys’ room, and it was so sweet to see them read together! I also loved it when we had the oldest brother hold his youngest brother, and we captured a group hug with everyone. Together is truly the best place to be! Congrats again to the de Jong family!

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!
