This little studio maternity photography session was just pure perfection. When they called to schedule their maternity session, I was so thrilled. Mama is an expert in fine art and having someone who knows photography and fine art choose me to photograph their growing family is such a privilege.
Maternity sessions are very quickly becoming my favorite session to photograph. The celebration, joy, and nervous excitement that precedes these types of sessions is something I love documenting and creating, whether that be in the studio or on-location for my portrait sessions.
Here are a few of my favs. from this lovely summer, natural-light family photography session.
KALEIGH AND BLAKE |MUSEUM OF THE NEW SOUTH WEDDING | CHARLOTTE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS | AMANDA MCQUADE PHOTOGRAPHY
When Kaleigh and Blake first contacted me about their winter Charlotte NC Wedding, I was thrilled. My husband and I were also married in the winter (in Ohio!) so the idea of something outside the norm of weddings in the south really appealed to me.
Winter has this lovely pure pretty light, that tends to not be as harsh as spring and summer. And Kaleigh and Blake really were blessed with some gorgeous Carolina blue skies for their wedding day! With every wedding, there is always the risk of running into bad weather, and my job as a professional wedding photographer is to be prepared for that awful weather (should it come) and thankfully that wasn’t the case with this sweet couples perfect wedding day.
There are so many aspects I loved about this wedding day. I love that all the bridesmaids worn different dresses. I loved all the fur they cozied up in for portraits. I loved Kaleigh’s choice of greenery and elegant decor for their reception at Levine Museum, and I loved the added detail of the Trolley. There were a lot of folks in the wedding party, so it was a wonderful addition to get everyone from point A to B at the same time.
And there were so many lovely people that made this day possible. I want to thank all of you who stepped in for my husband and I at the end there, when emergency circumstances took us out of the wedding for the reception (another blog to follow). It was really TEAM BLACK for these two and I couldn’t be more happy for them!
