Gorgeous Maternity Session at UNC | Chapel Hill Maternity Photographer

I am SO excited to blog about this gorgeous maternity session with Melody and Chris! They met as students at UNC and have been married for 10 years, and desired to take photos at their alma mater. I LOVED that they chose a location that was meaningful to them because it shows a part of their family story! :) We also included their adorable Italian Greyhound, Tebow, in the shoot (yes, he’s named after Tim Tebow!) and he did such a great job during the session!

We started off the shoot by taking photos by the Old Well, one of the most iconic spots at UNC. We then took photos in front of the South Building and then at McCorkle Place. Both spots made absolutely stunning backdrops, and I personally loved how the brick added an academic and historical look to their photos! Another fun spot we took photos at was at Davie Bench, also known as the “Kissing Bench.” The legend is that if a couple kisses on that bench, they’ll get married! The funny thing was that Melody and Chris haven’t kissed on that bench before, but we thought it would still be fun to do it since they are married! :)

We then ended our shoot on Franklin Street, and took photos in front of the Carolina Coffee Shop (a place where they would frequently go as students!) and also took a couple of photos of them walking on Franklin. It was truly a meaningful and sweet way to end the session! Enjoy some of my favorite photos below, and I can’t wait to meet their baby girl!!

A Sweet Maternity Session | Durham Newborn Photographer

I had so much fun taking maternity portraits for Mitch and Kirah last month at the American Tobacco Campus! They have been together for 8 years and married for almost 5 years. Mitch describes himself as the data/computers guys and Kirah as the artistic/social one, and together they love playing board games. I was so excited when they told me they’d like to incorporate a board game during our shoot because I truly believe sessions should reflect who you are as a family!

We started off the session with them playing the board game called, Santorini, and I loved seeing the way they interacted with each other. Being able to have fun with your spouse is important, and I can tell these two truly enjoy spending time with each other! We then took portraits of them together, and it was so sweet to see how they looked at each other and how they giggled together. Their joy and excitement for their baby can definitely be felt! We also incorporated an ADORABLE blue baby sweater that Kirah knitted—it seriously looked like it came out of a magazine! :)

We ended the shoot with a couple of more photos of the both of them, and I can’t express how natural and relaxed they were in front of the camera. Their laughs were effortless and Kirah was absolutely glowing! It was a pleasure to get to know the two of them and I can’t wait for them to enter the next season of life together…Baby Daniels is going to be so loved!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the maternity session below, and stay tuned for Baby Daniels arrival! :)

Outdoor Maternity Session | Raleigh Maternity Photographer

If you’re on the fence about getting maternity photos, let me tell you it’s something SO worth doing! I had the wonderful opportunity to capture maternity photos for Kathleen and Andrew, and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple. I remember Kathleen saying that she wanted to capture the excitement during this time of waiting, and to be able to look back at these maternity photos and feel good about how her baby bump looked. Mamas, if that sounds like you, I highly recommend capturing maternity portraits—whether it’s with me or having a friend or spouse take the photos! This season of life is so precious and special—a time where your body is changing and your family dynamic is changing—and is something you won’t regret doing.

The day of our shoot was VERY chilly, but Kathleen and Andrew (and their dog, Lori) were such troopers! They were brave enough to take their jackets off for a few minutes at a time and fight the cold during their session. I do have to say though, you can’t even tell it was a cold day by looking at the photos because they had SO much warmth and excitement for their baby boy—see for yourself below! :)
