Sunset Maternity Session at Dix Park | Raleigh Maternity Photographer

I had a wonderful time taking maternity photos for the Geary family last month! They are truly one of the most upbeat and cheerful families I’ve met, and they were all SO natural in front of the camera (including their cute little maltipoo!). We took photos during the golden hour (my favorite time of day!), and the light was absolutely amazing!! The sun came out from behind the clouds a couple of times, and it created such a beautiful, warm backlight to the photos. I especially loved the backlight when capturing Sarah’s solo maternity portraits and the photos where Sarah and Matthew were swinging their daughter (she was so happy!). The sunlight behind them added wonderful dimension and depth to the photo, and just looked so pretty!

What I loved most of all from this photo shoot was capturing the “togetherness” of their family before baby #2 arrives. Maternity sessions are truly a family session. Maternity sessions are more than just capturing your baby belly; it’s more about capturing who you are as a family in this moment in time. The dynamic of your family will change and documenting the reality of this moment before everything changes is priceless. Trust me, you will never regret capturing the different seasons of life with your family!

Enjoy scrolling through my favorite photos below! There were many sweet and fun moments during this incredible session, and I know baby #2 is going to be so loved! :)
