Raleigh Film Maternity Photography | Betty & Richard

Raleigh-Film-Maternity-Photographer-23.jpg

So recently it rained in NC for about 10 days straight, which rarely happens here. It was practically all anyone could talk about. I was particularly distressed because I had a few sessions scheduled during this time period that kept having to be rescheduled due to the fact that it would NOT STOP RAINING.

Betty & Richard’s maternity session was one that kept having to be rescheduled - we waited and watched the weather over the course of two weeks and FINALLY the sun peeked out for one glorious afternoon and BAM! Magic. Betty showed up to the American Tobacco Campus in Durham looking like an absolute vision and literally glowed the entire session!

Side note - To all my pregnant mamas out there, listen to me - your body is doing some incredible work to create new life! Whether we do it in your home or outside somewhere special to you, I promise you won’t regret documenting the amazing way your body has changed to make a little miracle happen!

Enjoy a few images from this sweet and simple maternity session! I’m so excited to meet Betty & Richard’s sweet little baby boy in just a couple weeks.

Raleigh Lifestyle Family Photographer | The DeLormes

Dream session, dream clients. 

First of all Melissa is a ridiculously talented photographer, so when she asked ME to take her family photos I was all like WHO ME?  It's super flattering when other photographers ask you to take photos for them, and it also adds a touch more pressure than normal - kind of like cooking dinner for a famous chef, ya know?  Anyways, this family was/is a complete delight and I had so much fun hanging with them at their house for a while, and venturing to an outdoor location for a few portraits.  It's basically how I would plan every family photography session to go.  Everyone feels more relaxed in their own home (1 year olds included!) and I just love capturing families in their home environment.  And then once we've warmed everyone up a bit we go outside and get some lovely outdoor images as well.  Best.of.both.worlds. 

Enjoy a few favorites from my time spent with this adorable family!

Raleigh Newborn Photographer | Baby Zinnia

At the beginning of every at-home lifestyle newborn session I take a few minutes to walk around my clients' homes to look for interesting spots with beautiful light to use for the session.  Let's just say that when I saw this window seat with the gorgeous light pouring in, I almost squealed with delight. 

Jess & Erin are dear friends and I was beyond honored to come take photos of them as a new family of three after their sweet daughter was born.  I've known Jess since we were kids and I've never seen this wonderful woman as happy as she is now.  She and Erin are a perfect match for each other, and I know they are going to be the most wonderful parents.  I can't wait to watch this little baby girl grow.
