When planning this maternity photo session with Ginger and her husband Nate, we talked through some possible areas for their session to take place. Based on her due date in April, we knew the photos needed to take place sometime in late-February or early-March. Ginger wanted some lush greenery, however, based on the time of year, we opted for a different setting. Upon considering a few different location options, we settled on taking these maternity photos at the historic and industrial Revolution Mill in Greensboro, NC.
For this maternity session, we focused on the exterior space of the Mill with backdrops of the original windows, exposed brick exterior walls, courtyard areas, as well as the graphic murals that are scattered throughout the outdoor space. All of these areas make the space truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
Revolution Cotton Mills, also known as Revolution Division and Cone Mills, is a historic cotton mill complex located at Greensboro, North Carolina. Revolution Mill was opened in 1898 by brothers Moses and Ceasar Cone. The first flannel mill in the South, Revolution helped establish Greensboro’s manufacturing tradition and the Triad’s prominence as the center of North Carolina textile manufacturing. In 1984, Revolution Mill ceased production and shuttered its doors, sitting vacant for the next two decades before early redevelopment efforts began. The former cotton mill is now home to several local residents and businesses. Revolution Mill is a vibrant live, work, and create campus that includes a beautiful event center, cafe, and more than 100000 square feet of Class A office space.
