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!

Durham Family Photographer at Eno River | The Zhu Family

Taking portraits for dear friends is always a special honor! I was so excited when Mia reached out for maternity portraits and family photos as they will be expecting a baby GIRL in December! We had a sweet and fun family session at the West Point on Eno River, and my favorite part was when their son Elliot was tossing leaves in the air! The joy that is captured on their faces is priceless :)

Also, I absolutely LOVED their blue and yellow clothing coordination! It totally fit their happy personalities and added a nice warm touch to their photos! Did you know yellow is my favorite color, too? I love it because it's such a happy and cheerful color.

Enjoy getting to know the Zhu family with the photos below, and get ready to celebrate their growing family!
