I swear, every new maternity session is my next new favorite. I have been getting in LOTS of new wardrobe styles the past couple of weeks inspired by my own pregnancy and I just LOVE how beautiful my clients are looking in them! Being that I am done shooting for a while (I’ll be 37 weeks on Friday!), I’ve had to pull back the reigns on my prop spending – especially since I still have this gorgeous teal blue maternity dress that I’m dying to photograph…If I didn’t have so much to do – I’d photograph myself in it! ;) Really working hard today to hopefully edit my last 3 sessions after Hayley’s so that all of my work is complete and I can finally relax before the baby gets here.
Hayley’s maternity session in my Raleigh studio was a dream! Her daughter Alexa, who is only 3, was absolutely adorable for the camera. Typically most of my clients, especially maternity, always seem to be first time moms…so getting to photograph a sibling was super fun for me…especially with my mama carrying twins!! So glad grandma was there to help out with Alexa and also be my coveted “dress tosser”. ;) We got a couple of extra images in her gallery due to adding Alexa to the photo shoot and they are just all too precious to not include in her blog post! Hayley is due with twins right around the same time as me which means unfortunately I will not be photographing them but I referred Hayley to an excellent newborn photographer in our area. Hopefully I will be able to assist on the session if my own little one hasn’t come yet! Alexa is going to be the proud big sister of a set of boy/girl twins – how lucky is she?? :)
Melissa is currently on maternity leave but still in the office! We are accepting bookings throughout the end of 2014 starting in June/July for maternity, newborn and baby sessions. Please feel free to drop us a note if you want to get on the calendar soon! We look forward to hearing from you!
