Expecting Benjamin | Maternity Photographer Raleigh NC

With Benjamin due any day now (eeeeh I can’t wait!), I am proud to finally blog about my first maternity session with Bridget & Thomas. In light of my recent post about blogging more as a 2012 goal – this is me catching up. ;)

Bridget was the best first maternity client I could have asked for! Having never done maternity before, I had done my research as far as flattering posing, lighting ideas and the technical side of it, but Bridget took it up a huge notch and was super helpful with the creative aspect of this shoot. The first two “chalk” images were totally her idea. I wish I could take credit but Bridget had perused Pinterest for maternity inspiration for her shoot and really brought her A-game. It also doesn’t hurt that Bridget & Thomas are good friends of ours and that made for a really fun shoot even though it lasted a little longer than planned. Bridget and Thomas were very patient with me getting the posing and lighting just right and I can’t thank them enough for the opportunity to practice capturing this incredibly beautiful and exciting time in their life.

I am extremely happy with my first attempt at not only maternity, but studio lighting in my in-home studio. I love that we did indoors and outdoors because it really created a lot of variety and enabled me to get practice in both types of locations with this particular kind of session.

So here’s to a smooth delivery and a healthy baby Benjamin making his debut sometime this week! I absolutely can not wait to snuggle him in the next couple of weeks for his newborn session.
