This glowing mama-to-be and her family were an absolute joy to photograph this month. Maternity sessions and spring go hand-in-hand (so much new life all around!), and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect, 70-degree sunny day for this shoot.

Kate brought her own creative vision to this session, and I loved collaborating with her to create the types of photographs she wanted. The flower-crown and field in Southern Pines were such beautiful touches that really made this session pop. (Kate's son also brought his own vision to the session...by running around naked for the first half of it. I couldn't resist photographing his cute bare bottoms!)

Kate, thanks for such a creative, joyful session filled with such color, laughter, and playfulness. You are such a beautiful mama already, and I am looking forward to photographing the birth of your little one in just a few weeks!
