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!

A Micro Preemie Miracle | Durham Newborn Photographer

Every newborn session is truly special. I had the honor to photograph the Huynh family and I was so moved by this family’s love, strength, and resilience! I learned that baby Huynh was born in July, a couple months early of his expected due date of November. I also found out their son was born the day their movers were supposed to come and help them move to California for Frank’s new job!

All that to say, baby Huynh was truly a miracle baby—he was a micro preemie baby when he was born and weighed about a pound. He then spent the next five months in the NICU, and after gaining enough strength he was finally discharged on Christmas Eve (what a gift!!).

Frank then contacted me about getting newborn photos done while he was in town (since he was flying back and forth to California every two weeks for work), and I was so honored to document their beautiful family. Their little man was about 10 pounds when we photographed him and was such a joy to photograph! I loved how he much he enjoyed looking at his parents during the shoot, and he was SO alert and inquisitive! We also had so much fun having their dog, Rilo, join in on the family photos!

Capturing the joy and emotion of being a new parent is so beautiful, and documenting a baby’s new life is priceless. It truly is your story and love that inspires me when I photograph families, and I’m so humbled and honored when families choose me to be their photographer. Enjoy the highlights from this precious lifestyle newborn session (the last photo will melt your heart), and getting to know the amazing Huynh family!

The Parker Family | Raleigh Family Photographer

I love fall because of the gorgeous colors, cooler temperature, AND it’s the season where you get to wear cute and cozy outfits! I recently had the honor of capturing family photos for the Parker family, and my goodness, they looked absolutely STUNNING with their navy and red color scheme (I especially LOVED Ashley’s red sweater—it added a touch of warmth and vibrancy to their photos!).

I remember when I chatted with Ashley before the session, she expressed her desire to do family photos each year because as a mom, she rarely gets to be in pictures. Also, her boys are at such a fun age and she wanted to capture this moment in time! She wanted to photograph the sweet spirit of her children because they won’t always be this little. Who else can resonate with that? It’s so true and this time is so fleeting!

We had such blast during the session despite the weather being a tad windy. We took photos during the golden hour, right before the sun was setting, and the beautiful light gave a nice warm glow to their photos! In addition, one of the things that stood out to me during their photo shoot was the way their oldest son interacted with his younger brother. He was SO gentle, kind, and patient towards his younger brother! We were all doing a variety of things to get his little brother to smile, and he was so eager to help. He certainly did help us capture some adorable smiles! :)

Enjoy getting to know this family and scrolling through some of my favorites!
