Celebrating Maternity - Urban Style! | Wilmington, NC Maternity Photographer

She's beautiful - just glowing - and I loved it! I've been wanting to do a Downtown Wilmington maternity session for a while. Lucky for me Danielle was up for it! And what a trooper because we must have picked the hottest day ever.

This was a fun and challenging session for me - I'm not used to having to "pose" my subject so much. Usually, it's all about me capturing life as it's happening. Well, an urban maternity session requires more attention to posing - so it was an awesome learning experience. Thanks, Danielle, for your patience!!!

Had I been a little more adventureous, I would have climbed on the car that was right in the way to get a better shot - or at least gone in the store and kindly asked that they move it - but hey - it was hot - and I was working fast!

There's so much awesome texture downtown.

I love, love, love this one. She is so beautiful anyway - but this one just screams beauty/mom/pregnancy/ you name it.
So, we found this little green, lush, oaisis downtown - who would have thought! While Danielle was waiting for my next instructions (and I was trying to figure out what they could be) her sweet baby girl starting moving around. There's the LIFE I love to capture!
I love the green her top - and the way her blue eyes just pop!
There's a great fountain downtown - made for a great backdrop!
This one is just fun to me! I love where we live!

So much fun - and I can't wait to do some more urban sessions. Speaking of - what a great excuse for a casting call!!! If you are pregnant - and are interested in an urban session - let me know - The session will be on me - and I'll throw in an 11x14 (limited # so act quick!)

Don't forget - I love comments!
