Maternity Shoot: Happily Preparing for Baby!

Unlike most maternity photo sessions (or any shoot in general), this one didn’t require scouting out a great local backdrop or out-of-town venue to in order to achieve photographic perfection. The parents-to-be’s own home and backyard — located right on the beautiful intercoastal waterway in Wilmington, NC — provided an amazing setting all on its own. Starting off their day with Amy Allen Photography on the docks behind their house, the photos set a tone of intimacy and easy-going elegance from moment one. Dressed in a chic champagne-colored sweater dress and brown riding boots, mom April, looked, as photographer Amy Allen commented, “nothing short of a model right out of a magazine.” Later, our mommy-in-waiting brightens things up a bit by changing a vibrant aqua-hued sundress dotted with hot pink and yellow flowers; an excellent color complement to the poolside setting featured during this portion of the shoot. The snuggle-fest that ends their day, however, leaves the most lasting impression by illustrating just how thrilled these two are to welcome their little one on the way. Even their cuddly kitten seems pretty excited about the new addition to the family!
