These maternity and newborn sessions were very special because they were for a close friend of mine. Our friendship goes back to our freshman year of college and we have had 20 years of laughs and stories to tell (some we’ll just keep to ourselves).
When I found out that they were expecting, I was over the moon excited! We knew we had to take some maternity photos to document the special time of anticipation for the baby that was already loved so much by her parents. We shot the maternity photos inside their Plaza Midwood home making use of the windows for light with some help with an off camera flash.
For the newborn photos, they came to me. I typically do newborn sessions at my clients’ homes. I’ve gotta say that it was pretty nice doing them in my space because I could have everything set up and ready the day before. It was a huge time saver and made the day go so smoothly.
Little Miss “L” was exactly 10 lbs at birth and she was 10 lbs of pure goodness. It may be some bias talking but she was just about the prettiest little thing I’ve ever photographed. Get a load of that full head of hair and those squishy cheeks. I could just eat her up.
Here are my favorites from bump to baby.
