I can't begin to tell you how much I love maternity sessions....probably some of my favorite to do...its such an exciting time for the momma to be and for the entire family! This family was absolutely beautiful and Emerson was so excited to become a big sister! The colors that Julie chose for the family to wear were perfection. Everything about these images is magic.
A few weeks ago I was able to photograph my very dear friend, Valerie's, third pregancy. The dress she chose for the session, screamed "FAIRYTALE" so I wanted to try to create a bit of magic and enchantment with her images...and that didnt mean adding a tiara or fairy wings in photoshop. We woke up super early to catch the sunrise coming through the trees. I rarely do these morning sessions but I would really love to start doing them more. I feel like we captured some beautiful emotion and that sun flare in the woods...dying over it! I am so excited for Valerie to have baby Sadie...her family of 5 will be complete....and I CANNOT wait for their family lifestyle session once baby girl is born.
I've been really striving to improve my photography the past 6 months..I've been taking quite a few workshops and classes. I literally learn something new everyday in this profession and I absolutely love that about it. With this session, I wanted to step out of the comfort zone I was in and stretch myself to create more dramatic shadows and a deeper more emotional, film look. I think I achieved it. This is one of my favorite sessions to date...Jessica is literally glowing with warmth and love for her baby boy and and her husband, John is beaming with the anticipation of whats to come.
Over the past year I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful girl's wedding, pregnancy announcement and recently, her maternity photos. She definitely looks amazing and fabulous with that pretty mama glow....I cannot wait for her to have her twin girls!
