Stephanie – 33 Weeks | Garner NC Maternity Photographer | Raleigh Newborn Photographer

I feel like I’ve been talking about this blog post forever!!  My site had a few hiccups over the weekend ::side eye:: so I wasn’t comfortable making another post until the issue was resolved.  Thank goodness that’s done and taken care of!

Can I just say how much I LOVE shooting maternity sessions?  I have another mama coming in next week and I just can’t wait!  Stephanie’s images are just so soft and pretty and she did an amazing job posing for me.  Steph is a personal friend of mine and I was so excited to find out she was pregnant last year!!  She is the last of my book club girls to have a baby and I am just thrilled for her and her hubby.  I think we may be starting on round two soon. ;)

As always, Stephanie’s maternity was full of good laughs, lots of gorgeous light and spending time on perfecting each pose.  I try extremely hard to get every detail right so that my clients are shown in the most flattering way (which isn’t hard when you’ve had the confident mama’s like I’ve had!).  Stephanie is expecting a little girl in March and it will be such a special newborn session for me!!  I am so honored that Stephanie has entrusted me with her maternity and newborn portraits and I hope to keep photographing her little one throughout the first year to capture those sweet milestones with my baby plan!

If you did not see it in a previous post, Stephanie is also a very talented mama with a small business in Garner, North Carolina.  She owns and operates For Cake’s Sake and Steph is an amazing cake baker!  (I know first hand!)  Steph specializes in Wedding Cakes and offers a variety of cake flavors and fillings.  She also designs cupcakes and cakes for smash cake photo sessions (my favorite!! – my clients get a discount!), birthdays, anniversaries, baby showers, wedding showers, corporate parties, and holidays.  You can also check her out on Facebook!

Congratulations Stephanie and Aaron!!  Wishing you the best of luck with the rest of your pregnancy and a fast and safe delivery of your precious baby girl. <3
