Family Portrait Session- Pittsboro, NC Family Photographer

I was asked back in the fall about this family session. I have never done more than a family of 6 or so that I can remember. Other than friends at the beach... I was a tad nervous about the group shot. I even took my tripod. I never use my tripod. In fact they were laughing when I was setting it up because I didn't know how to use the camera from portrait to landscape... It was pretty funny. I just picked the whole thing up. :)

These are just a few shots from today that I thought I would share! I have a whole disk ahead of me waiting to edit but these are certainly some favorites!

~enjoy!

Winter Minis {Woodlake} Durham, North Carolina Photographer

I have enjoyed meeting so many new clients this year.  I have really enjoyed the minis this December and have even opened up spaces for more if anyone is interested. Instead of blogging each family, since they only received  a handful of images (because they are mini sessions!), I will share them all in one blog. I am mostly only sharing some individual children shots now and not the family shots.

I seriously love this job not only because I love photography, but because of all the awesome families I get to meet and hang out with! It has been a blast!


I hope you enjoy what you see! Feel free to email me at LaurenSoignetPhotography@hotmail.com if you are interested in a mini. I am offering through December (maybe January, but not promising yet!) - a 20 minute session near Woodlake (close to Southpoint Mall) for $65. 5 edited images chosen by me will be emailed to you within 48 hours of this session.




I took his sweet newborn pictures early in the summer. Where is time going?!

These were the sweetest siblings. They were hugging and holding hands and just so precious!

This sweetness was super excited to show me his superman shoes as soon as he hopped out of the car. We had a ball in the freezing cold but they were all three troopers!

That smile. She was so excited because her mom curled her hair for the first time. It was adorable.

Such a sweet 10 month old. I could eat her up! Not to mention her name is on my list of girls names if that ever happens again. :)
One of the first littles I ever photographed. He has grown so much!

Sweet baby Ro, I feel like I took his newborn pictures yesterday!

These twins were adorable. They realllllllllly wanted to plat in that water!

This was an outtake and I just loved it. This little sister was d-o-n-e. :)

Newborn Session {Lucia} Chapel Hill, NC Photographer

Sweet Lucia is my latest newborn. She was an October baby and oh so sweet. Don't let those closed eyes fool you. I'm fairly certain she was faking it in every. single. shot. She may have slept for 5 minutes of the two hour session. I have to admit, she gave me a run for my money, but it was so worth it for these shots! I snuck in some shots of the new big brother in town too! Tell me he isn't the cutest two year old fella you've seen?!

Enjoy!






H Family Session {American Tobacco Campus} Durham, NC Photographer

You guessed it! Another AMAZING session that I can't share much from since the family wants them secret for Christmas cards! I think American Tobacco Campus may be my favorite... I keep going back and forth between there and the Eno, but I really love this look! Enjoy!




S Family Session {American Tobacco Campus} Durham, North Carolina Family Photographer

Often during this time of year, I am asked not to share too many images since the families want them for Christmas cards. This is SO hard for me to do... or not do... however you write that! This family was so fun to work with at American Tobacco Campus! I hope they enjoyed their disk. Maybe after the holidays I can share some more! Enjoy!

Michaels Family Session {West Point Mill} Durham, NC Family Photographer

Since I am still somewhat starting out as a photographer and do it somewhat as a hobby it was a super huge compliment that this family drove over an hour for the second year in a row for me to take their photos. I met them last year as they were sent to me from an old college roommate. Last year they were a family of three and I was shocked when they emailed me this year with a fourth member to the family! Sweet Katie definitely warmed up to me much better this year and I think we had a ball out at West Point Mill!







Cappellett Family Session {West Point Mill} Durham, NC Family Photographer

Part of the reason I love doing what I do is all the new faces I get to meet. This family was so fun at their session. We met out at the West Point mill on a super crisp fall morning. The kiddos were troopers despite the chill in the air! Enjoy!

S&J Family Session {ATC} Durham, NC Photographer

This sweet three year old was so fun to work with! I do not want to share too many since these will be Christmas cards! The love sweet J showed for his mother was incredible. He was such a well mannered and fun little boy to work with! ~Enjoy!




Fields Family {Page Walker House} Cary, NC Photographer

I had such a great time with this sweet family. The kids were so fun to work with! We explored this location as it was a first for both of us! I think it was very nice and had some pretty neat spots hidden around it that we found! I just LOVED the sass and handsomeness in the two older siblings. They were a blast! ~Enjoy!
