In Home Newborn and Sibling Session Theo – Raleigh Wake Forest Cary Garner Apex North Carolina Newborn Child Photographer

It’s hard to believe that it was actually a rainy, dreary Monday morning when I photographed Theo’s in-home newborn session!  It didn’t matter at all though, as this family was absolutely perfect…

How GORGEOUS are these sibling shots of big sister holding her baby brother?  She was so very gentle with him and did such an incredible job holding “her baby.”  After these shots, Mom and I praised big sister for doing such a wonderful job!!!

Newborn Liam – Raleigh Wake Forest Durham Chapel Hill Garner Apex Cary North Carolina In Home Newborn Photographer

This is just a small taste of Liam’s newborn session from last week, along with a video that I created especially for his family…I had such an amazing time with Liam and his big sister, Chloe!  I really hope that you enjoy the video as much as I do…Mommy, Daddy, Grandma and I were crying as we listened and watched Chloe sing to Liam, tell him how much she loves him, how “kind” he is…she is going to be the best big sister ever!  This video is actually my very first and I am so happy to share a glimpse into how my newborn sessions are conducted…and how much FUN we have!

Stay tuned for lots more pictures from this in-home newborn session!

Newborn James Sneak Peek – Raleigh Wake Forest Garner Apex Cary Durham In Home Newborn Photographer

Sweet baby James…I can’t stop calling him that…and he is just that, so sweet!  I hadn’t seen this family since I had photographed big brother Teddy 2 years ago for his very own newborn pictures, so going to their home to meet their newest addition brought back so many fond memories!  James is the spitting image of Teddy as a newborn!  I could not get over just how much they favored each other…I felt like I was transported back to two years ago when I had first met this wonderful family…

Photographing at their house also meant that I got to spend some quality time with Teddy and see what a handsome little man he’s become…and so smart!  Hearing him say “That’s Heather” made my face light up and I just wanted to snuggle him all day long and play toys in his awesome toy room!

As I always love to do, I finished up their in-home newborn family session with the family of 4 (well, 6 if you count their doggies) spending a quiet moment together.  The fur babies were so well-behaved and big brother did such a great job reading with his Mommy (there’s a little secret behind the making of the family photos….shhhhh, I’ll never tell)…

Thank you so very much for allowing me into your home to photograph your two handsome sons!

Newborn Lucas Sneak Peek – Apex, Raleigh, Wake Forest, Garner Holly Springs North Carolina Newborn In Home Photographer

I have been so anxious to post a sneak peek of newborn Lucas from his in home photography session this week!  I can’t tell you enough how sweet and kind his family were to me..and little Lucas was an absolute perfect little gentleman for his pictures…

When I come to your home to photograph your family, I always love to incorporate sentimental items from your family into your session and Mom had the perfect two items to include.  Her father had passed away suddenly a few years ago, so we decided to use two items that held special meaning to her and reminded her of her Dad.  Below you can see Lucas holding onto a tiny heart-shaped charm that was given to his Mom by his grandfather…also, his tiny little hands hold tightly onto a GORGEOUS pocket watch that his grandfather carried on special occasions, which now belongs to Lucas’ Mommy…you could say this is a very special occasion and it was perfect in Lucas’ newborn hands…

Stay tuned for more pictures from his session, including some with his puppy:)

A Miracle – Garner, Raleigh, Wake Forest North Carolina In Home Newborn Family Child Photographer

Do you believe in miracles?  I do…I met one this past weekend:) I had the extreme honor of photographing this gorgeous family, as they celebrated their newest little miracle, baby Clara.  Every child is a gift from God and the Murphy family has been blessed with two of the most beautiful little girls I have ever seen.  Big sister, Madeline, is stunning….with her gorgeous eyes, pouty lips and blonde curls…

This brings me to the star of the day, Miss Clara…Clara was born at 25 weeks gestation on September 8, 2013. She weighed 1 pound 2 ounces.

After 145 days in the NICU at Chapel Hill, Clara was finally able to go home to be with her Mommy, Daddy and big sister, Madeline…Clara is doing great and is thriving…she has the most gorgeous eyes that follow you everywhere…watching her incredible family interact with her, it is impossible to miss the love that they surround each other with.  Seeing Mom, Courtney, feed Clara her bottle (by the way, she LOVES her bottle and eats around 4 oz!!! which I guess I shouldn’t be shocked by, since Clara already has some chunky rolls) was heart-warming…seeing Daddy, Jason, hold his little girl as they stared into each other’s eyes was so beautiful…and finally, to see big sister, Madeline, play with her little sister, telling her  funny stories about how Daddy poops in his pants (ok, MAYBE I told her to tell Clara that to make her laugh…I mean, I’m sure Daddy doesn’t poop his pants, but when you see the below pictures of Madeline laughing, you’ll understand why I told her to say that)…well, these are moments that I will never forget.

Thank you to the Murphy Family for allowing me into your home to photograph your gorgeous family…it was absolutely my pleasure and honor and I hope that you love the photos as much as I do!

PS…a special thank you to Madeline and Clara’s Uncle Jonathan for helping set this session up.  Hope to see you and your family soon!
