Sarah is absolutely stunning in her maternity portraits taken at my Raleigh home studio last year. She gave birth to a baby girl named Lilllian in November 2013, whose newborn session I also got the pleasure of photographing. Sarah is a nursing friend of mine which makes these sessions so extra special. I was so flattered when she asked me to capture her pregnancy portraits. Her and her husband Mike were such a pleasure in the studio. Every single maternity session I run includes lots of laughter, but imagine when you’re photographing a friend!! It was a ton of fun and very relaxed. Since Sarah and I are both nurses, we’ve seen everything under the sun (oh believe it!) so a little semi implied nudity was nothing for us. ;)
I simply love the lace dress that we got to use during her session (and later on I ended up wearing it myself for my own maternity session!). It accentuates those gorgeous baby bumps so well while remaining delicate and classic. In fact, since her session I have added a bunch of new maternity garments to my collection. Simple white and white will always be my favorite for maternity though and I start every session out that way. I also have a new lens for the studio that will allow me to more easily get full body shots, which is something I want to focus on more for my maternity sessions.
