Raleigh Film Maternity Photography | Betty & Richard

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.

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.

Sunset Maternity Family Photography Raleigh | Kennedy Family

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!).
