Spring is in full bloom in North Carolina and we made it out to the tulip farm for Katie’s maternity photos!
Dewberry Farm in Kernersville North Carolina puts on a show with all their spring tulips this time of year. The ideal time for tulips is usually around late-March to early-April. This is all dependent upon the weather, but we made it out for maternity photos in the tulips in late-March.
Katie is having a baby girl! She will arrive this summer and when she makes her big debut, I’ll be capturing her newborn photos as well. I love it when my clients trust me to take their major milestone photos time-after-time.
It was just last fall when I took Christmas photos for Katie and Phillip, and they told me at the session they were expecting! It was such a nice surprise and I was over-the-moon excited to photograph them! They immediately asked me about my maternity + year one package and opted in right away. The maternity + year one package is a great way to plan for major milestone photos such as, maternity, newborn, 6-month, and 12-month pictures. This way you do not have to worry about forgetting to have photos taken of your growing family throughout your child’s first year.
My suggestion to all my maternity clients is to target to have your maternity photos taken around 34 weeks into your pregnancy. Of course, it is 100% up to you and when you want to have your photos taken. Based on my professional photography experience working with maternity clients, the 34-week mark in your pregnancy is the “sweet spot”. This is when you are definitely showing, you aren’t waddling around *quite* yet, and you are getting closer and closer to your baby’s arrival.
If there is a certain setting you have in mind for your maternity photos in North Carolina, talk to your photographer and make sure they understand your vision. Depending on the time of the year, there are some pretty unique places you can venture out to in North Carolina for maternity photos that will serve as the perfect backdrop. In this case, Dewberry Farm’s tulips bloomed at the perfect time of year for these North Carolina maternity photos. Katie was thrilled when I mentioned the idea to her for us to go to Dewberry Farm and she was beaming when we got there for her North Carolina maternity photos.
