A Fun Family Session at Home | Hillsborough Family Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of taking photos for the de Jong family again! They are expecting their third child (another boy!) this summer, and I was SO honored to be able to capture this season of life for them before they become a family of five!

We took photos at their beautiful home, and it was so sweet and meaningful! As the parents were finishing getting ready, I followed the boys to the backyard to capture some candids of them interacting. The older brother LOVED showing his younger brother around, and it was so endearing! I especially loved the moment when he held his brother’s hand to help guide him around :) Another memorable moment was when the kids wanted to play in their dad’s car. I was so inspired by their excitement, silliness, and imagination and wanted to capture their laughter and smiling faces! I totally embrace organic and spontaneous moments during photo shoots, and love documenting kids being kids :)

We then spent the rest of the photo shoot in the playroom. I learned this family has a love for music (as do I!) and it was so sweet seeing Eelco reading a book to his oldest son. One of the books played music from Vivaldi, and my favorite moment was when his son started conducting when the music came on! The expression on his face was absolutely priceless!! We then finished the rest of the shoot with family snuggles, snacking on graham crackers, and knocking down blocks! :)

Can’t wait for baby #3 to arrive this summer, and enjoy scrolling through my favorite photos from this fun family session!

The Prenshaw Family is Growing! | Hillsborough Maternity Photographer

I recently had the honor of taking maternity photos for the Prenshaw family, and it truly was a joy capturing this sweet moment in time for them! When I chatted with Carley over the phone, I remember her telling me she didn’t want to look like a fairy in her maternity photos (think flowy dress, flower crown, and bare belly), but wanted to capture photos of her and Eric that looked genuine and natural. I was thrilled to hear she also loved a natural, authentic style, and hope that encourages any mamas out there that you do not have to bare your belly or wear a crown to make it a maternity photo! Whichever photography style you prefer, go with the style that makes you comfortable and feels the most like YOU!

So back to the shoot, the day of our session was BEAUTIFUL! We captured photos during the golden hour and took photos at the scenic Hillsborough Riverwalk. Carley and Eric were so excited for their photo shoot, they even practiced some poses beforehand! I thought that was so sweet and cute! :) We started our session by taking photos with the famous twig sculpture, which was an artwork they love. If you haven’t seen it yourself, please do consider checking it out—it is truly an amazing piece of work made up of ALL twigs! We continued our session by taking photos on the different pathways, by the river, and on the bridges. One of my favorite spots was taking photos by the river. The light coming down was like from HEAVEN! It was incredibly pretty and illuminated them perfectly!

Most of all, I loved how HAPPY and relaxed they were during the shoot! It honestly made my job so easy to photograph them! I loved every minute of this sweet maternity session and can’t wait to photograph their baby girl once she arrives! Enjoy the photos!
