Thursday evening I got to meet a super sweet couple at their home for a maternity session as they anticipate the birth of their first child – a girl. Isn’t this mama simply radiant awaiting baby girl’s arrival?
The weather couldn’t have been nicer for us – mild temperatures, soft gentle breeze, and a glorious sunset. We took a few pictures inside before heading out to take advantage of it. Since their session took place at home, it made it easy for an outfit change toward the end. I very much enjoyed watching this couple interact. He was so helpful getting her hair and outfit just right. After seeing him show so much care, I can only imagine how much he will dote upon his daughter once she arrives in just a few short weeks.
I thoroughly enjoy every type of session I offer. Each one captures and tells a different part of a families story as it grows and changes. Maternity sessions offer a chance to capture the story of anticipation, as well as the beauty of pregnancy. It really is no small thing to grow a baby. It takes strength and I find the beauty of it incredibly powerful. This mama’s strength was evident. I’m looking forward to returning in March for their little girl’s newborn session.
If you’re expecting and interested in a maternity session, please contact me. I would love to capture memories of this chapter in your life before it’s over.
Here are a few highlights from the session. Enjoy!
