Introducing Baby Theodore | Durham Newborn Photographer

Oh the joy of taking newborn photography at home! Lifestyle photography sessions are my favorite because it is a wonderful, fun, and relaxing opportunity to capture who you are as a family!

For those who aren’t familiar with lifestyle photography, it basically means you take a documentary and photojournalistic approach to capturing photos. While I still incorporate some posing during sessions, I also create room for the unposed, candid moments. Ultimately, my goal as a lifestyle family photographer is to create images that tell a meaningful story of your family while capturing genuine emotion in your photos. Lifestyle photography does not look stiff, awkward, cheesy, staged, or forced. Lifestyle photography is real, natural, organic, genuine, authentic, candid.

All that to say, I had such a wonderful time taking lifestyle newborn photos for this sweet family at their modern, cozy home! Baby Theo was born a couple weeks after Kathleen and Andrew’s maternity session and came out earlier than expected, but he was just so excited to join his family! :) He was SO adorable during our session, and I absolutely loved taking photos of him being held in his parents’ arms! It’s the way parents look and hold their precious baby that makes these newborn sessions so endearing and beautiful.

I hope you enjoy the photos and getting to know this sweet family of three!

A New Family of Three | Durham Newborn Photographer

I recently had the sweet honor of taking newborn portraits for the Prenshaw family. A couple weeks earlier we took maternity photos at the Hillsborough River Walk, and it was such a JOY to work with them again…this time with their baby girl!! Baby Julia arrived right around her due date in December, and her delivery went by faster than expected. It was so fast, that Carley didn’t have a chance to get an epidural! But oh what joy she brought to this beautiful family, and she came right on time for the Christmas season.

We took photos in the morning at their beautiful home, and baby Julia was all ready to go! Our shoot went by smoothly and baby Julia did so many CUTE things during our shoot! She gave the sweetest little yawns, and her hands would perfectly be positioned around her chest or face. When she was awake, she would look really intently at the camera, and it was hilarious!

My favorite moment was when she put her fingers around her face and it was the cutest photo EVER (see the second to last photo below!), and I’ve never seen any baby do that by themselves! I’m a big fan of baby-led posing, meaning I don’t force the baby into a position that’s not natural for them. I’m all about seeing what they will naturally do and how they will position their bodies—and might adjust them slightly—but most of it is natural posing. I think this type of posing is the most genuine, honest, and real.

Enjoy the highlights from this precious newborn session, and getting to know this new family of three!
