I met Brittany for a pre-consult to discuss capturing her baby boy when he arrives. Of course after meeting her, I hoped she would also want to document her pregnancy. At the studio she had the option of looking through the maternity wardrobe and trying on a few of the gowns to see if they were something she would enjoy using. She selected her favorite and shared with me that she would really like to include her fur baby in the images. Of course the next question is what type of dog or dogs do you have? Nope, that was the wrong question! Brittany has a thoroughbred race horse named B.B. that she and her husband Calvin have rescued from the tracks… Well the thought of how gorgeous this moment could be, helped me to answer quickly with, “Yes, Please!” In scheduling her session, we worked around the consistent rain we have been blessed with, but which also makes all outdoor maternity images hard to plan this summer.
On our second attempt, we were blessed with a fairly open sky of fluffy clouds after the sprinkling of showers stopped. The steaminess after a light rain that we normally get even turned into a bit of chill… it was magical… I would like to introduce to you B.B., a very lucky horse who has been rescued and is very loved. B.B. was a bit uneasy when the winds picked up and we had lighting occasionally off in the distant sky. He was a true champ long enough to get these gorgeous images for his mom.
I am excited to meet their little man for his newborn images and wish them blessings on the last few weeks of carrying new life within!
If you are hoping for images of your pregnancy, I recommend scheduling your session between 30 – 35 weeks.
Making contact a month prior to that will, insure availability and it gives us time to meet to plan the type of images that you would like. At our appointment you can look through the studio wardrobe of over 25 maternity gowns in many soft and classic colors. Using one of the gowns allows you to rest, knowing that you will not have to purchase something you may not wear again.
Let’s connect for a free pre-consult appointment, just leave your due date and contact information here. I can’t wait to meet you.
