{Raleigh NC Maternity Photography} A fall maternity session on the farm

March 01, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

I was so thrilled when this family let me know that they were expecting their second child a few months ago.  We met a few years ago for a fall family portrait session on their farm in Holly Springs. Their property is gorgeous, a photographer's dream.  We met on a fall day for the maternity session and luckily had some beautiful weather and sunset.  Big sister was so excited to be a part of it.  She had changed so much over the past two years from when I met her the first time.  She had been so shy, but now was a big girl and excellent helper.  

We started the session in the back yard, which is actually a pasture beside some woods.  It was a bit rough to navigate, with thistles and bugs in the tall grass, but it was so pretty that it was definitely worth the trek.

We then walked down the driveway to get some portraits done there.  I really like the curves and hills in the driveway.  It's so pretty lined with old oak trees.

The farm's pond is always beautiful at sunset, with reflections of the trees in the water.

As the sun faded behind the trees, we were able to capture some last beautiful portraits back in the field.  I loved the idea of wearing a cowboy hat with a dress.

This was definitely one of my favorite maternity portrait sessions I've ever done.  I love doing these kind of portraits outside in nature, and a farm is the perfect setting.  If you are expecting and are interested in maternity portraits during your pregnancy, I strongly recommend capturing this special time for your family.  The session is best done between 28 and 34 weeks pregnant.  If you have any questions about maternity photography or would like to set up a session, please email me at erica@ericacourtinephotography.
