I enjoy catching up with families returning for images of their second (3rd or 4th….ha!) pregnancy. I know the first year or two of their babies lives goes by slowly for them, but for me… goodness, it’s quick! It was fun to see this busy little man growing up! Averett, won my heart as a sleepy newborn, and at his first year session he was the smiling toddler. During their maternity session for his soon to be baby sister, he had found his independence… and knew he could come and go when he wanted. Playing with him as he trotted in and out of the images seemed the best way to encourage his participation. Without the feeling of it being his decision or a game worth playing… we weren’t going to see his gorgeous little face in their maternity images. Once he warmed up…. when he ran out of the image, he ran into my arms…… OK melt me, buddy! What a way to win my heart. I think I have a crush…..
Sarah had maternity images with me, while expecting Averett. The thought of not having them while expecting her girl…. wasn’t an option. What a blessing to capture this gorgeous mom again….
I love that she was willing to be photographed in a few of the gowns and robes from my studio wardrobe. I continue to add beautiful maternity items to this closet! It’s a joy to take the concern of finding the right gown, off of a moms list of things to do, before having their images made.
If you are expecting soon and would like a maternity session, fill out the contact form.
It’s best to make contact during your second trimester to insure I have availability to capture you. Most mom like to have their images made from 28-34 weeks. With daylight savings time in the fall, I have only a few weekend appointments for outdoor images left before New Years.
