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! :)

Outdoor Maternity Session at Duke University | Durham Maternity Photographer

I recently had the honor of working with the Pelissero family again, and this time it was for a maternity session at Duke University for their fourth baby! This was photo shoot was so special in so many ways. It was their first time getting maternity portraits, and Duke was a special place for their family. Craig recently finished his divinity studies at Duke and we thought it would the perfect backdrop to tell their story!

The Pelissero family is truly a sweet, loving, and affectionate family. Any time I asked them to give a hug or kiss, they eagerly did so! You can tell they absolutely love being together and have such a beautiful bond with each other. The three children were also delightful! They absolutely LOVED giving hugs and kisses to their baby sister, and snuggling with mom and dad! Their son (and only boy!) was also SO funny during the session, and would playfully jump in the shot when mom and dad were getting photos together! He also jumped in when his mom was getting solo portraits to give her a flower, and it was seriously the CUTEST thing ever (see below!!!). It’s truly these real, honest moments that makes these sessions so beautiful and memorable. Even though I pose my clients during the session for some nice portraits, I also LOVE to let things naturally unfold to really capture the essence of my families!

The last fun fact is that TWO DAYS AFTER we took these photos, Jennifer went into labor!! Talk about timing!! She gave birth about two weeks early, and gave birth to a healthy baby girl! We are all so thrilled for their newest addition to the family! Enjoy scrolling through these gorgeous maternity and family photos, and stay tuned for their stunning newborn session!!

Durham Family Photographer at Eno River | The Zhu Family

Taking portraits for dear friends is always a special honor! I was so excited when Mia reached out for maternity portraits and family photos as they will be expecting a baby GIRL in December! We had a sweet and fun family session at the West Point on Eno River, and my favorite part was when their son Elliot was tossing leaves in the air! The joy that is captured on their faces is priceless :)

Also, I absolutely LOVED their blue and yellow clothing coordination! It totally fit their happy personalities and added a nice warm touch to their photos! Did you know yellow is my favorite color, too? I love it because it's such a happy and cheerful color.

Enjoy getting to know the Zhu family with the photos below, and get ready to celebrate their growing family!
