Hi everyone! This is Joe taking over the blog today. I just wanted to come on and share some of our favourite photos from Neha’s Raleigh maternity photography session a few weeks back. Cristel and I got up early to meet Neha, Sandeep and their cute pup at sunrise down at the sunflower fields by Dorothea Dix park . We met up early as, first of all, the light is as its best at this time, secondly, it was going to be a warm day and we wanted to keep things as cool as possible for Neha and, thirdly, we wanted to ensure there were as few people at the field as possible. We’d waited a few weeks for the blooms to be at their peak, so there were still quite a few people out early taking photos at the same time as us, but we managed to avoid the crowds.
Cristel and I actually drove out the previous evening to scout out the location and after working out the best spots in the sunflowers, we looked around the adjacent field to see what we could work with. This turned out to be super helpful once Neha arrives and we realised her dresses matched the colour of the crepe myrtles perfectly.
We worked quickly to make the shoot as fun as possible and to get as many different images as we could (including a change into a more traditional Indian dress) before the sun got too high. I think we did a pretty fab job and it was hard selecting images for the post as we had so many.
Incidentally, the idea fo shooting at the sunflower field came 100% from Neha. We loved working with her to bring her concept to fruition. If you’re expecting and would like to have maternity photos taken, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. We’d love to chat through what you’re looking for with you and come up with a session to suit.
Anyway, without any further ado, here are just some of our faves from the session…
