JASMINE + KENNETH | DOWNTOWN RALEIGH
Right before mama to be’s baby shower, we headed downtown Raleigh. Beautiful mama Jasmine, 8 months along and big brother Kenneth, Jr. are so excited for baby brother, Kingsley to arrive. While proud daddy, Kenneth was all smiles of excitement. Even though it just thunder stormed before our session, we made the most of it and used the downtown Raleigh architecture as a stylish umbrella. We then stepped into the Marriott where the baby shower was to be held, for some nice window shots.
Okay, I know what you are thinking when you scroll through my site. 1. This photographer takes a thousand photos and shares too many. 2. No way this family is for real. Okay okay, to be fair, yes, I take WAY too many photos. But it’s because I am in love with what I do. Like I am up all at night in my bed thinking about how much I love capturing those priceless memories. I dream of creative shots and how to make it happen.
When I get in my zone during a session I am not restricting my creativity at all. I just go with it. Because of that, I don’t miss a thing. And for number 2… yes, this session is stunning. But guess what? They are so cool, so down to earth, so fun, and THAT my friends is why these images are so beautiful. Just look at how relaxed she is. Unfortunately, most mamas to be don’t like belly photos because they feel too big or unattractive. My job is to make them feel beautiful. Look at how Kenneth, Jr. just adores his mama and how daddy’s strong arms hold her in the most tender way. Just look at how comfortable they are in each others presence.
