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!!

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!
