I love, love that I'm able to capture important milestones in people's lives. Expecting a baby is one of those special times. I love the anticipation and excitement of a maternity session with an expectant couple. When my close friends and parents-to-be asked me to take their maternity photos in the Raleigh area, I jumped at the chance and had just the place in mind. The JC Raulston Arboretum is the perfect location for any type of portrait session. I had been there to take photos before and was very excited to go back. The weather was perfect, mom-to-be was glowing, and we were all ready for a perfect session. No matter who I'm working with, I always feel nervous and it was really important to me to make this session a great one. Everything felt very natural and relaxed. We had a wonderful time wandering around, looking for pretty spots, and watching everyone out and about enjoying the gardens. I can't wait to meet this little baby boy! Congrats!
