Meet Amanda, a prominent birth photographer in the Triangle area. (You can see her work at her website here:

We planned her session in a special backyard space in north Raleigh, near the Durham line. After some snuggle time on a blanket she uses in her own sessions, we fired up the campfire and roasted marshmallows as the sun set behind the trees. I headed home all amped up on the sugary comfort of chocolate and graham crackers covered in melty marshmallows and had to wash my hair more than once to get that campfire smell out of it.

As I transition to exclusively lifestyle sessions, this is a great way to visualize what kind of session you can have outdoors!
