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 Jamie@jamievinsonphotography.com or contact me here and lets make it happen!

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

A Wonderfully Casual Maternity Session | Raleigh NC Maternity Photography


Casual Maternity Photography Raleigh NC

You guys.  One word.  Overalls.   When Stacie showed up to her maternity photography session wearing a pair of denim overalls I was pretty sure I had never seen anyone look cuter.  Stacie and Nick are expecting a sweet little girl any day now, and I'm so glad they let me capture a few moments for them during this sweet time of waiting (and waiting...and waiting...).

As far as I am concerned the best sessions are the ones that just flow naturally, and the more relaxed the better.  This maternity session couldn't have fit that bill any more than it did.  We just took our time meandering through the Raulston Arboretum and picking lovely spots to stop and shoot, and laughing all the way.  Stacie and Nick are such a genuine and laid-back couple, and that truly showed in the way they interacted with each other, as well as with me while we were shooting.  It was such a fun and easy session and I would shoot their gorgeous faces everyday if they would let me!  Thanks again to both of them for letting me make some memories for them.

Here are some of my favorites from our time together.  Enjoy!
