Raleigh Family Photographer | Hoskins Lifestyle Family Session


Twin parents never fail to amaze me.  Jessie and Sean are no different; these two just have it together.  They are totally dominating this whole two babies at once thing.  Me?  I'd probably be rocking in a corner somewhere - one at a time was hard enough for me!  Not these guys though, during our short time together for this session I saw them feed them, change them, play with them, put them down for naps, (basically, you know, all the things) and they were totally cool the whole time, even with me there with my camera snapping away.

I'm lucky enough to call these two people friends, and so this session meant all the more to me.  I'm completely in love with their twin boys and can't wait to see them again so I can give them a snuggle.  Thank you Jessie and Sean for making this lifestyle family session so easy and so wonderful!  Enjoy a few favorites from our time together!

Sunset Maternity Family Photography Raleigh | Kennedy Family

raleigh sunset maternity session

I love maternity sessions that include the whole family, it's a last chance to document life as you know it before you welcome another beautiful little soul to your family.  You'd never know from the gorgeous warm light we were shooting in, but this sunset maternity family session took place on a super chilly evening in Spring.  We were having unseasonably warm weather up until the day of the session, so it surprised us all when it turned downright cold!  This incredible family toughed it out though, and I'm so glad they did.  What we ended up with were some heartfelt, authentic and beautiful images of this family of three (soon to be four!).

Lifestyle Family Photographer - 6 Month Milestone Session - Baicy


Lifestyle Family Session - Raleigh NC

In-home family lifestyle sessions are my jam.  I LOVE photographing families in the place where they are most comfortable - it makes for an easy going and fun session and as an added bonus produces some beautiful and authentic images.  Even though I might tell you to cozy up in a corner on the floor next to a window, which could seem weird, you're gonna have to trust me.  It'll be good.  Promise.

This family is so dear to my heart, so the fact that they asked me to document these first milestones in their daughter's life is beyond an honor for me.  I've watched my friend transition into motherhood so effortlessly, and little Evie is just a delight.  It was really hard to narrow down my favorites for this blog post - but here are my favorite picks from Evie's 6 month milestone session: Jamie Vinson is a lifestyle family, newborn and maternity photographer residing in Raleigh, NC and serving clients across the state and beyond.  For more information or to book a lifestyle family session with Jamie, contact her here.

Lifestyle Family Photographer Raleigh NC - Jones Family

Lifestyle Family Session - Raleigh NC

It's official - I am completely in love with capturing everyday moments with families inside their homes.   At-home, or "Lifestyle" family sessions are a great option when you want to document what your life is like right now.  The wonderful and happy chaos that makes up your days (and nights!) is, if we believe it or not, a short lived period that needs, and begs, to be captured.  Whether it's as simple as sitting around the table eating cereal, making a meal together, playing with Legos, tickle fights on the bed... however mundane these things may seem, these are the memories that you will cherish when your house is quiet and your floors are clean and clear of colorful clutter, and your children aren't children anymore.

I traveled to Charlotte to spend a wonderful afternoon with the Jones family, and we had The.Best.Time.  One of my favorite aspects of a lifestyle family session is how relaxed and at ease everyone is.  It takes so much pressure off families to be in their own space, and just doing whatever it is they do to have fun or be together.  That's exactly what I loved about this particular session; just how relaxed and easy it was.  We simply meandered around the house while the girls played, read, jumped, and snuggled with each other.  I just followed them around and caught it all on camera. Sounds easy, right?  It was!

I seriously need some more in-home lifestyle family sessions in my life.  Email me at or contact me here and lets make it happen!

Here are some favorites from my time with the Jones girls.
