Welcoming Baby Hudson | Durham Newborn Photographer

I had the most delightful time taking newborn photos for this sweet family! Baby Hudson made his entrance to the world early June, and was seriously the most RELAXED baby I’ve ever photographed! :)

When I arrived, Kirah was finishing up feeding Hudson, and it was a moment that I just had to capture. Seeing how lovingly and gently she was holding him, feeding him, and wiping his mouth (and seeing Mitch help) was SO precious! It’s the little gestures and expressions that make ordinary moments like this so beautiful. We then continued our session and took a lot of gorgeous photos in their bedroom. The light coming through the windows was simply spectacular! The solo portraits of Hudson were also amazing. The simplicity of the white bedsheets made the perfect backdrop to highlight his newborn freshness and newness! Not only that, he was so happy and content, which made it easy for me to photograph him :)

I also had so much fun getting shots of them as a family together, as well as photos of Mitch swaddling Hudson! When we took portraits in the nursery, I felt like it added so much character to their story. From the cute Calvin and Hobbs stuffed animal, to the Virginia Tech blanket, to their cats making an appearance to the shoot—it’s these types of details that brings out the uniqueness of each family! By the end of the session, I honestly felt like every shot was AWESOME and below are some highlights!

Big congrats again to Mitch and Kirah, and welcome to the world, baby Hudson! You are so loved!

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!

A Sweet Family Session at Home | Durham Family Photographer

Do you know my favorite place to take photos? Believe it or not, it’s YOUR HOME! Often times, clients ask me for my thoughts on a location and I love letting them know that their home is an option—most people don’t even realize that’s possible! When Oliver contacted me, I learned that they’ve taken family photos at their home before and I was SO excited to hear that!

We started their session in their backyard, and it was truly the perfect fall backdrop! They were all so charming and warm in front of the camera, and I truly enjoyed getting to know them, especially their daughter! She was so cheerful the whole time and LOVED smiling for the camera! She also wanted to include her dolls and her favorite stuffed animal named Doggy in the shoot, and of course I said yes! It was so funny because it reminded me of my favorite stuffed animal growing up who was also named Doggy!!

One of my favorite moments was capturing their daughter hugging and kissing her dad. She was so affectionate and the look on her face was priceless! You can tell she really adores her dad! I also loved capturing photos of just Oliver and his wife, Sarah. Their bond with each other was so genuine and strong! I believe it’s so important to take photos of just the parents when possible because honestly, when was the last time you got professional photos together? People usually tell me it was their wedding!

Enjoy scrolling through highlights and getting to know this lovely family!
