What a beautiful day it was for this lake-side maternity session out in Raeford! The water was so perfect and still, and there wasn’t a soul to be found. Except for this GORGEOUS momma-to-be and her adorable little ladies, of course. I always love shooting near bodies of water, whether it be a fountain, a rustic pond or a serene lake like this one. There is something so calming about being near beautiful waters. And the shot of Irene alone looking down at her baby bump is just…I get chills! I love it. She embodies all that IS pregnancy. The glow, the excitement, the love..it’s all over her face. And her two little girls are very excited to be sisters again! Psst: this one’s a girl too, so daddy will definitely have his hands full come junior high & high school!
The best time to schedule your maternity session is between 24 weeks & 32 weeks. Or if you’re showing earlier and feel comfortable, earlier is fine too! I’ve even had a woman do maternity photos at 38 weeks. Talk about a trooper! And she was still wearing her regular jeans! I was jealous.
I’m so anxious for warmer weather so I can use this location again, because I’m DEFINITELY going to have to ask someone to get in the water. Y’all know me 🙂 Enjoy!
