I have always enjoyed maternity photography in my Raleigh studio…especially in my new BIGGER Raleigh studio located near the Brier Creek and Leesville area. Now that I’m 7 months pregnant with our 2nd baby boy, I cherish them even more. I just love capturing women during this most amazing time in their lives. Pregnancy is so amazing and deserves to be captured forever. I did not get maternity photos done with my first but recently worked up some nerves to get in front of the camera (so weird for a photographer!) and have them done in my signature style with the help of a local photographer friend. I absolutely LOVE them. They made me feel incredible about my pregnant body (2nd time around – holy smokes!) and it just makes me wish I had done them even more with my first. It’s fun and the images are just so special…as well as a confidence booster! I make sure my mamas look their best by fine tuning posing, using the most flattering lighting and offering gorgeous maternity wear that is soft and beautiful. My experience with studio photography is essential to creating the most beautiful top quality portraits for my clients!
Shawn’s maternity session a few weeks ago is no exception!! She was my first session of the New Year (hello 2014!) and after a long winter break with family, I was excited to get behind the lens again. Shawn is absolutely beautiful and I just know (from first hand experience now!) that she is going to adore these images of her baby in these moments before his birth. These images were taken at 37 weeks and she looks spectacularly stunning in every photo. Her due date is in just a few days and I can’t wait to hear of baby Sammy’s arrival! I am so excited to photograph his newborn portraits next month! Can’t wait to see all three of them soon!!! :)
Sometimes I love a shot so much, I just can’t decide which version to post…color or black and white? This is one to display for sure!!!!
