HELLO & WELCOME

I’m Kelly Hudgins, your friendly neighborhood newborn and family photographer

I specialize in the highest quality heirloom albums, wall art, and more. It brings me lots of joy to not only make it as easy as possible to fill your home with sweet memories, but also to help you stay connected with loved ones near and far through tangible photos.

I live here in Raleigh, NC with my husband Andrew, our 2-year-old toddler Isaac, and our pup Jack. I live for the simple moments in life like chasing Isaac around, reading in a hammock, walking our dog downtown, savoring each bite of chocolate peanut butter ice cream, and crocheting under a blanket on my couch. (Let’s be honest, though, most of life these days is that first one - trying to keep up with my toddler!)

These simple moments often grow into our most treasured memories, and it’s always my goal to capture that essence during our time together for your session.

I am also passionate about accessibility and equitable opportunities for all, which is why I’ve included Community Care into my business. With generous pay-it-forward contributions by my amazing clients, I’m able to offer photography services to all.

Documenting these precious moments for you has special meaning for me.

I know first-hand how looking at a photo of your loved one and seeing their smile can bring a little of their presence back to your heart. Her smile, his warmth, their laughter, his mannerisms, the way she cared for you and others - it all comes flooding back. It’s almost like you can feel their warm embrace once again as you recall memories from the big life events and the simple, everyday moments alike. This photo that once represented a present-day reality now has the power to let you relive that moment over and over.

That’s why I treasure each and every photo I have of my own mom.

Her selfless love, comfy hugs, and how she truly cared for people. Reading her favorite Stephen King novel while sunbathing on the back porch, drinking a glass of iced tea. The way she’d chuckle and say, “Silly girls…” when she came upon my friends and I doing something silly.

We lost her only a year and a half after her cancer diagnosis when I was 21 years old, and these precious memories are preserved for a lifetime because of the photos I have of her and the photos I have of myself with her.

I’ve always enjoyed them, and now I treasure them.

That’s what I want for you and your family too.
