Maternity Sunset Photography Raleigh
This park is one of my favorites because oh my, the light can be so stunning. I had a lot of fun with this session – the light, the fence, and the cattails. I think that’s what the plant is called…..they are just so interesting and add so much texture. And it was so great to meet these two! This stunning Mama to be was just glowing – and loved the dress she chose. Gorgeous! It was such a beautiful evening – just perfect capturing the love they have for their sweet baby girl who will be born soon. I love Maternity minis because it gives us a chance to chat before the newborn session and couples can kind of see how I direct and work during a session. I usually recommend planning your session around 34-36 weeks but we can plan a maternity session whenever it works best for you and your family. Maternity Minis are just so much fun, and we definitely had such a great evening the night of their session. Can’t wait to photograph their baby girl soon!
According to Mom…
Why did you pick this location? What was your favorite part of the session? I picked this location because I thought it looked very peaceful and serene. I wanted to use soft colors and have a romantic vibe and this seemed like a good match. My favorite part of the session was the beautiful light that we had. The sun was just going down and it allowed us to capture some moments in a special way
Were you worried about any parts of the session beforehand? My only concern was that it would feel awkward to take these pictures that would be focused on my belly. Becky made us both feel so comfortable with her humor and laidback attitude. I think we both were pleasantly surprised at how easy and relaxed the whole process was.
Do you have a theme for your nursery? What has been the most fun part of shopping for your baby? We do not have a theme necessarily, but we are sticking with a particular color palette. I wanted to do something a little different, so we chose to use mint, peach, and navy. I had fun getting some custom made prints from Etsy to match the colors exactly. We chose to use elephants, giraffes, and birds for the prints. The walls are mint, we have a navy chest that we will use as a changing table and all of our bedding, decorative accents, etc. are mint, peach, and navy. We did put a sparkly crystal ceiling light in there for an extra feminine touch and to give our little girl some bling
How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? It is rare that we have a Saturday where neither of us has anything going on, so when that happens we love to just spend our time together. We would probably sleep in, go out and get a nice big breakfast, and then spend the rest of the day hanging around the house and enjoying each other’s company. I like to cook so we would eat dinner at home and then find a good movie to watch. We’re pretty laid back!
What is your favorite tv show you watch together? Game of Thrones! We have both read the books (Jordan read them all twice!), so we are very much into seeing the story come to life on screen. It is difficult sometimes as they have now strayed pretty far from the plotline in the books, but we try to just take the tv show as a separate thing and not let it bother us. It is still such a great show!
