I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to kick off the spring season by capturing maternity photos with Anna and Adam at the American Tobacco Campus! Can I just say they are one of the most down-to-earth and cheerful couples I’ve met, and we laughed a TON during the shoot? :) They are both originally from New York, and moved down to Durham in 2014 for Anna to attend grad school. Ever since the move, they’ve grown very fond of Durham and even got married here! During our portrait consultation, I was so excited to hear they wanted to genuinely capture who they were as a couple and document their excitement as their family was changing. I remember Anna describing this season as a “magical time in their relationship” and I thought that was such a beautiful sentiment!
One of my favorite moments during our photo shoot was when I was capturing portraits of just Anna, and I asked Adam to cheer her on…and he was SO enthusiastic, encouraging, and funny! It was incredibly endearing to see how much Anna laughed and how happy and excited they both were! My other favorite memory from the shoot was when they told me they’ve been doing yoga together to help with the pregnancy, and wanted to capture a photo of them holding a pose. I forget what the pose was called, but they were having so much FUN and laughed so much! I found myself laughing with them and could feel the joy they had! We ended the shoot with them dancing together, as they wanted to remember this sweet moment and re-enact from their wedding :)
Can’t wait till their baby arrives, and we’ll find out soon if it will be a boy or girl! Enjoy scrolling through my favorite photos from the maternity session!
