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! :)

The Janson Siblings | Raleigh Family Photographer

Siblings are truly one of the greatest gifts in life—there’s no other person who really knows you like your brother or sister! I recently had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the Janson siblings. The youngest, Makayla, got in touch with me and I learned they wanted to gift their parents with a photo of all of them. Getting all four of the siblings together was so precious because they live in different cities, and as we all know the older you get, the harder it is to coordinate dates/times with people!

The day of our shoot was a bit chilly, but I was SO glad the sun was shining! We had a morning shoot at the NC Museum of Art, and we had so much fun taking photos together. They had AMAZING energy during our session and were full of joy and smiles. They were also so genuine and silly with their interactions with each other! I also learned the two oldest, Elise and Kyle, are TWINS (see first photo below: the twins are the two siblings who are standing in the middle!). I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter group of people to work with, and I hope you enjoy scrolling through my favorites!

Meet Moose the Corgi! | Raleigh Family Photographer

I recently took family photos for this beautiful family with their dog, Moose, the corgi! When Pauline got in touch with me, she share with me the emotional journey they had with their dog, Moose, this year. In a nutshell, Moose fell twice and had to get two back surgeries, and they almost lost her. After a lot of hard work at rehab, she is amazingly walking again! With everything that has happened this year, they wanted to take photos to celebrate Moose and to have pictures of the three of them together that they can cherish for years to come!

The weather was crisp and cool the day of their session, and there were a lot of other families at NCMA with their dogs—it was like a party! When we started our photo shoot, I was amazed at how Pauline, Alex, and Moose were so natural and comfortable in front of the camera. Usually it takes about 10 minutes for most people to warm up, but they were SO relaxed and it totally shows in their photos!

Moose was also such a gentle and calm dog, and had the most adorable smile! Pauline taught me that if you say, “chicken,” Moose will turn her head towards you!! It was SO cute and worked every time! Also, when we were taking photos of just Pauline and Alex, Moose kept getting in their shots. We would place her next to me, but she will end up walking back towards them—it was hilarious! See for yourself below! I think it just shows how much she loves them :) If you’d like to follow Moose’s journey, check out @m00sethecorgi on Instagram!
