Last week I was fortunate enough to capture this beautiful growing family. This will be their first child, so the anticipation going from couple to parents is growing (no pun intended) every day.
This photoshoot took place at The Meadows in Raleigh. If you’re looking for a place in Raleigh where fields of tall grass grow across acres of land, this place is it! The sun sets perfectly over the trees giving this session the most perfect golden glow any photographer would be in love with.
As we moved on from the fields, we decided to make our way to the AERIE HOUSE – a beautiful white brick house with a front porch and tree swing nearby.
It doesn’t end there! Towards the back of the AERIE HOUSE stood four (yes, four!) clawfoot bathtubs where you just HAD to find any reason to shoot in – which is exactly what we did. 🙂 Due to the private nature of this venue, Lesly felt more at ease baring a bit more than usual as no extra on-lookers were on site! I brought with me a sheer piece of fabric that we draped over Lesly to give her a slightly exposed, yet classy look. This played beautifully with the sun as it started to set over the horizon!
Everything about this shoot just fit right into my type of photography – the glowing sun, vast open fields, classy and sweet clothing pieces, and the perfect family with the most gorgeous mom-to-be!
Congratulations, Gonzales family! I am so excited for this new adventure you two are embarking!
