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!

Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorite photos and moments below!!

Turning One! | Durham Family Photographer

Turning ONE is such a wonderful and special milestone to celebrate! Babies change SO much in their first year and being able to document this time is worth everything. I had the honor of taking one year photos for baby Lilia, and I met her mom, Bree, at a Triangle Area Parenting Support event last year. Her mom dressed Lilia in the most ADORABLE outfit that said, “Sweet One,” which was donut-themed (who else love puns?!). One of the most memorable moments from the shoot was capturing Lilia’s determination to walk. Even though she was still wobbly and would fall down a number of times, she would get right back up and would try again. She showed SO much resilience and determination, but she also expressed so much JOY! One of my favorite photos is of her walking by herself and grinning ear to ear, which you can find below!

I also loved documenting mother-daughter photos of Bree and Lilia. Getting in the photos with your children is something I believe every parent should try and do at least once a year. Your children grow up SO fast and these moments slip by so quickly. To document your love and connection is something you’ll never regret doing.

Happy birthday to baby Lilia, and I hope y’all enjoy some of my favorite photos below!

A Sweet Maternity Session | Durham Newborn Photographer

I had so much fun taking maternity portraits for Mitch and Kirah last month at the American Tobacco Campus! They have been together for 8 years and married for almost 5 years. Mitch describes himself as the data/computers guys and Kirah as the artistic/social one, and together they love playing board games. I was so excited when they told me they’d like to incorporate a board game during our shoot because I truly believe sessions should reflect who you are as a family!

We started off the session with them playing the board game called, Santorini, and I loved seeing the way they interacted with each other. Being able to have fun with your spouse is important, and I can tell these two truly enjoy spending time with each other! We then took portraits of them together, and it was so sweet to see how they looked at each other and how they giggled together. Their joy and excitement for their baby can definitely be felt! We also incorporated an ADORABLE blue baby sweater that Kirah knitted—it seriously looked like it came out of a magazine! :)

We ended the shoot with a couple of more photos of the both of them, and I can’t express how natural and relaxed they were in front of the camera. Their laughs were effortless and Kirah was absolutely glowing! It was a pleasure to get to know the two of them and I can’t wait for them to enter the next season of life together…Baby Daniels is going to be so loved!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the maternity session below, and stay tuned for Baby Daniels arrival! :)
