Intimate Film Maternity Session | Raleigh NC Lifestyle Photographer

My beautiful friend Sara reached out just days (literally) before her due date, wanting a quick and simple maternity session. Up until that point she hadn’t been sure if she wanted to do a maternity session but as the end of her pregnancy drew near she felt compelled to document this season of her life.

This impromptu session yielded some of my favorite maternity images I’ve ever done. I think it proved to me that maternity sessions should be kept simple and focus on documenting the feeling of anticipation as well as celebrating how amazing the female body and all it is capable of really is.

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!
