Sunset Maternity Family Photography Raleigh | Kennedy Family

raleigh sunset maternity session

I love maternity sessions that include the whole family, it's a last chance to document life as you know it before you welcome another beautiful little soul to your family.  You'd never know from the gorgeous warm light we were shooting in, but this sunset maternity family session took place on a super chilly evening in Spring.  We were having unseasonably warm weather up until the day of the session, so it surprised us all when it turned downright cold!  This incredible family toughed it out though, and I'm so glad they did.  What we ended up with were some heartfelt, authentic and beautiful images of this family of three (soon to be four!).

We totally almost cancelled this maternity session.  The weather forecast that day was showing storms all around during our session time, but we decided to just go for it, and you know what?  It absolutely poured rain and stormed right up until the time we were supposed to meet.  But by the time we arrived at this beautiful open field to begin shooting, the sun was out and giving us some glorious light in which to shoot Ashley and Brandon's maternity session.

When I saw Ashley my first thought was that she seriously looked like an expectant goddess (for real).  She definitely had that "pregnancy glow" thing going on!

These gorgeous people are expecting a sweet baby girl in just a few short weeks, and I'm so excited to meet her when I come for their home newborn session after she makes her debut!

SO many thanks to Ashley and Brandon for letting me document this special time for them.

A Wonderfully Casual Maternity Session | Raleigh NC Maternity Photography

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!
