Raulston Arboretum

Raleigh Family Photographer | Moore Family


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.

A Wonderfully Casual Maternity Session | Raleigh NC Maternity Photography


Casual Maternity Photography Raleigh NC

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!
