Raleigh Lifestyle Family Photographer | The DeLormes

Dream session, dream clients. 

First of all Melissa is a ridiculously talented photographer, so when she asked ME to take her family photos I was all like WHO ME?  It's super flattering when other photographers ask you to take photos for them, and it also adds a touch more pressure than normal - kind of like cooking dinner for a famous chef, ya know?  Anyways, this family was/is a complete delight and I had so much fun hanging with them at their house for a while, and venturing to an outdoor location for a few portraits.  It's basically how I would plan every family photography session to go.  Everyone feels more relaxed in their own home (1 year olds included!) and I just love capturing families in their home environment.  And then once we've warmed everyone up a bit we go outside and get some lovely outdoor images as well.  Best.of.both.worlds. 

Enjoy a few favorites from my time spent with this adorable family!

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!

Raleigh Family Photographer | Moore Family


Can you even believe how adorable this family is?  I can't.  I had the pleasure of doing a lifestyle newborn session with them when baby Ada was born, and it's totally one of my favorite sessions to date.  So I was clearly pumped when they wanted to do another family photography session.  This family is a pleasure to photograph not only because they are beautiful inside and out, but also because of how much they LOVE each other.  Even the short amount of time I've spent with them was enough to really get a sense of how this family loves on one another, and its beautiful.

I'll always try to get parents to take a second and get a shot with just the two of them, if for no other reason than to honor the love that started the story of their family in the first place.  These two were more than willing to steal away for a second to love on each other, and let me tell you, they heated it up just as much as any newlywed couple I've photographed.

So yeah, I could just take pictures of this family all day.  Anytime my families show up ready to just have fun and love on each other it makes for a magical session, and this one was no exception.    Enjoy a couple faves from my time spent with this sweet, sweet family of four.
