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!).

Can you even believe how adorable this family is?  I can't.  I had the pleasure of doing a lifestyle newborn session with them when baby Ada was born, and it's totally one of my favorite sessions to date.  So I was clearly pumped when they wanted to do another family photography session.  This family is a pleasure to photograph not only because they are beautiful inside and out, but also because of how much they LOVE each other.  Even the short amount of time I've spent with them was enough to really get a sense of how this family loves on one another, and its beautiful.

I'll always try to get parents to take a second and get a shot with just the two of them, if for no other reason than to honor the love that started the story of their family in the first place.  These two were more than willing to steal away for a second to love on each other, and let me tell you, they heated it up just as much as any newlywed couple I've photographed.

So yeah, I could just take pictures of this family all day.  Anytime my families show up ready to just have fun and love on each other it makes for a magical session, and this one was no exception.    Enjoy a couple faves from my time spent with this sweet, sweet family of four.

Raleigh NC Engagement Photography Session

Seriously, how gorgeous are these two together?  Caitlyn and Robert seem to complement each other in every way possible.  I traveled from Raleigh to the beautiful Queens University of Charlotte (of which Caitlyn is an alumna), to shoot their engagement photography session.  The weather was positively dreary, freezing cold and drizzling, but these two didn't seem to mind at all.  In fact they seemed perfectly warm and cozy!

Here are a few favorites from their engagement session:
