Yates Mill Park Maternity Shoot | Michele + David

We are so excited to share Michele and David’s gorgeous maternity shoot at Yates Mill Park in Raleigh, NC!  I had not had the pleasure of photographing this sweet couple before but it was a true delight. They are such a sweet couple and they are so excited to welcome their new baby Heath in about 5 weeks!

They selected  Yates Mill Park because Michele had her bridal portrait shoot here – in the same spot! It’s so cool to see her back here now carrying her baby!! It was a perfect choice! Yummy, perfect light!

Yates Mill is one of my favorite locations in Raleigh to shoot!  Yates Mill served Wake County as a water-powered mill for more than 200 years. Of the 70 gristmills that once served Wake County, Yates Mill is the only one still in operating condition. It is full of beautiful areas to photograph!

Michele and David looked great and I especially loved Michele’s dress that she found on Etsy. The soft blue was gorgeous with the lush greens of the trees!

And to think we almost cancelled their shoot because of the threat of rain!
