Outdoor Maternity Portraits | Durham, NC Maternity Photographer

Andrea reserved my Belly to Baby collection, and when we discussed the location for her maternity session, we discovered that we live within a couple miles of each other. She mentioned a location right down the road that I had never seen, so I headed over there a couple days before our session to do some location scouting. I fell in love with the location right away! It’s a hidden little gem practically within walking distance of my house! I just love the beautiful tall grass and the way the sunset glows behind the tree line!

This session is actually from last autumn – I’m still playing a little bit of catch-up after falling behind on blogging during the busy holiday season. Andrea’s in-laws live in South America and don’t get to experience the change of seasons like we do here in North Carolina. She wanted to make sure that we captured some of the beautiful fall colors during her maternity session, so we began the session at a local park near our homes where the trees had begun to change color.
