Maternity Portraits by the Eno River

Maternity Portraits by the Eno River

When you book a maternity session, you aren’t booking to remember just how big your belly got. It’s to remember what your relationship was like as you both embark on a whole new adventure.  It’s remembering the anticipation that comes from being in your third trimester, counting down those final days until your baby is in your arms.   It might feel like the days are going by so slowly but soon, you’ll wonder how nine months went by so quickly.  You’ll miss feeling those little kicks or how your husband would rest his hand on your belly.  It’s those memories that make a maternity session a beautiful part of your pregnancy experience.

Maternity Session on the Beach

There’s plenty of beautiful locations near our town of Mebane, North Carolina but there’s nothing like photos on the beach.  There’s something about being dressed up but with your bare feet in the sand that feels elegant yet casual.   During our recent Ocean Isle Beach trip, I photographed this beautiful expecting mom with her handsome men.  I love that we were able to get such great backdrops including the greenery of the sand dunes, the sunset over the ocean, and a patch of flowers in an undeveloped lot.

Timing of Maternity Portraits

This mom was just shy of the typical 32-34 week maternity portrait window.  While she looks absolutely beautiful, she did have to puff her belly out and some poses weren’t ideal with a smaller baby bump.  For your comfort, I recommend 32-34 weeks as the optimal time for maternity portraits.

Maternity Photographer in Chapel Hill, NC

This beautiful mom-to-be met me at Chalk Ridge Falls for her maternity portraits.  I had this idea for a Mother Nature-inspired maternity shoot and loved styling this session to have a serene, natural feel.  Her beautiful golden tresses were perfect (as was her perfect shaped and strechmark-free baby bump!).  I couldn’t have asked for a better or more beautiful model.

Interested in a maternity session?  For best results, book your session for between 32-36 weeks pregnant.  Your belly will be beautifully rounded and you’ll still have the energy for fun photo shoots like this one!
