Lindsay’s Maternity Session | Raleigh Durham Maternity Photographer

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

You’re probably all getting used to seeing Lindsay on my blog a LOT.  I always love it when she calls me and asks me to take photos for her and her family.  She’s 33 weeks pregnant with her second baby boy, and she is looking AMAZING!  I’m sure every woman reading this is wishing they could look like this during their third trimester!

For Lindsay’s session, we opted to start with some indoor shots before heading outside to an amazing location.  I really have a hard time deciding which I like best – the indoor or the outdoor shots.  You be the judge!

For expectant Moms reading this – please check out my Anticipation and Arrival package.  It consists of a maternity and newborn session, and a set of custom designed birth announcements.  It’s perfect for documenting this special time in your life and the newness of your brand new baby.  You won’t regret it!  I REALLY wish I had more pictures during my own pregnancies – it goes by too fast!












And of course I have to end with a cute picture of Cole!!

Summer’s Bridal Portraits

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

I met Summer on one of our hottest days in July to take her bridal portraits.  It was at least 100 degrees outside and extremely hazy and muggy…. and the mosquitos were out in full force at this beautiful location.  She was such a good sport and COMPLETELY stunning.  She’s a drop dead gorgeous bride.  I totally love her dress  — it has POCKETS!!  And that long veil — totally to die for!!!

Here’s a little peak at some of my favorites from our session!

Summer & Daniel | Raleigh Wedding Photography

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Last weekend I had the pleasure of documenting the marriage of Summer and Daniel.  You won’t meet nicer people… they are sweet and kind and their love for one another is so easy to see.  The day of their wedding was stormy and rainy, so we were confined to the church for much of our photos – until the end when the sun showed up and we captured some amazing outdoor shots!!  The rain didn’t put a damper on the festivities, though — everything was beautiful and perfectly planned.

Right now they are surely relaxing on the beach.  Daniel planned the entire honeymoon himself and kept it a surprise from Summer!!  I thought that was so sweet and fun!  Thank you both for allowing me the opportunity to be there on your special day!!  Hope you are enjoying your honeymoon!!
