Meet Niya Kight. She is a woman that wears many hats. Mother. Dancer. Cancer Fighter. And as for me, I would also call her a dear friend. I first met her three years ago when I shot her maternity photography session when she was expecting her first son. This time around, she was pregnant again; however, this time she was also diagnosed with cancer. A few months after learning of her second pregnancy, she found out she had stage 2 cancer. She decided that she would take both of those life changing situations and handle them the Niya way, with a smile. She decided to continue treatment until a month before her due date to make sure she kept both baby and herself safe. Are you searching for Newborn Photographer DC?

Can I just say, this woman is so inspiring to me! I’ve never even witnessed her cry. She is always so optimistic and inspiring. In the midst of all the uncertainty of her diagnosis, she made it a priority to celebrate her pregnancy with another maternity photography session. She figured each pregnancy should be celebrated as much as the first. I could not agree more! I was so excited to be able to photograph Niya again and capture this special time in her life.
For the shoot, we wanted everything to be fright, beautiful, and feminine. Speaking of feminine, because of the queen that she is, Niya wore an assortment of gorgeous, colorful, floral crowns. If anything encapsulates her personality, it is a bright and cheerful crown. We started off the session with Niya in a forest green, off the shoulder maxi dress with a middle slit. I love how it so perfectly highlighted her pregnant tummy. After a few shots, she changed into a golden yellow gown that was just stunning. I love the way that color makes her pregnancy glow pop even more! Next, it was time for the lace. She wore gowns of purple and white lace that added such fantastic feminine touches. I love the way we were able to capture the wind picking up the gown’s train. She looks just like the goddess that she is! To finish the session, Niya wanted to pay homage to her roots in dancing. I absolutely love that she makes it a priority to keep her passion alive! Are you searching for Maternity Photographer DC?
