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!

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!!

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! :)
