I love photographing maternity sessions. There is so much excitement as expecting parents gets close to their due date. Just a few weeks until they are holding their sweet baby in their arms. A baby they already love but will come to love in a way that neither ever believed possible. So much anticipation, love and excitement.
This couple came to me after finding my work on the web. They were particularly drawn to my maternity shots in the water. I met with them a few weeks before our session at Amelie’s in NODA. Dad is a photographer himself and we had fun collaborating in the planning of this session.
The day arrived and the light was beautiful. I was thankful for the sunshine. I love to incorporate beautiful golden backlight but having no control over the weather, I’m always happy when Mother Nature is in on the plan.
This sweet couple were wonderful to work with. It was a joy to see how they loved each other and their little girl already.
Because I am always behind in blogging, I can say that the baby has arrived and she is simply beautiful.
Here are my favorites from our time together.
