Adria & Colin | Maternity Portraits in Downtown Durham

Adria & Colin | Maternity Portraits in Downtown Durham

When Adria first contacted me about maternity portraits, we set up a time to talk on the phone, but instead of telling me what she and her husband Colin were looking for while we were chatting, Adria kept circling back to what they were NOT looking for. "I didn't even think I wanted maternity portraits," she kept saying, "they can be so cheesy." But there she was, on the phone with a photographer, trying to find a way to verbalize what she DID want. She DID want to capture the finite experience of pregnancy, and - for once - to get Colin (whose place is normally behind the camera) in the photos with her. She DID want to record the final days of their time as a family of two. She DID NOT want chalkboard signs or baby shoes or terrible reach-around poses.

"So no train tracks?" I asked.

She laughed - hard - and we booked the session.

And it was super-fun and totally laid back... just like Colin & Adria. Baby Cash is in for a fun ride!

Chelsey & Justin | A Maternity Portrait Session at the King's Daughters Inn

I would've happily shared these maternity portraits ages ago, but the night before I was scheduled to show them to Chelsey and Justin, I got a text saying that Chelsey was in labor and wouldn't, therefore, be available for our meeting the next morning. As it turned out, by the time that meeting would've taken place, they already had baby Eason in their arms, and although I love these photos to pieces, there's no way they can compete with a squishy newborn.

(Photos of said squishy newborn to come!)

P.S. For those of you who like to geek out on these things, this post marks the debut of film on my blog, specifically the first and last images, made on Ektar 100 with my new-to-me Hasselblad. Let me know what you think!

Allie | Family & Maternity Portraits in Atlanta, GA

I wanted to share some of the images I made last fall for this sweet family in Atlanta... they were so much fun to work with and it was such a spectacular fall afternoon. Note that these were among their last photos as a family of three... by now they've got a fourth in the mix! Steve & Jennifer, thanks again for letting me capture your lovely trio - I hope all four of you are doing well!

xox,
