I first met this family almost 3 years ago for a maternity shoot for their soon to be son. It was one of my favorite maternity sessions, and still is. Mom is simply stunning and such a natural in front of the camera. The love between the two of them and their excitement was so apparent. The session was casual, fun and so enjoyable. When mom contacted me earlier this year to tell me they were expecting again I was thrilled to be able to watch their family grow from 3 to 4. After a few weeks of reschedules, we finally we able to meet up this past weekend. Mom was still just as stunning as ever. The session however was a little bit more work than last time, and I mean that in the nicest way, the good thing is that I was using a new camera, the best canon camera with flip screen – technomono. Now we also had a two year old very active boy who wanted nothing more than to run and just be a kid. He definitely was not interested in having his pictures taken. Luckily we found out he is quite taken with the ladies so we had my girls come help out for the studio part of our session, and then while out at the park he would stop and stare (and sometimes chase) some of the women walking by. This at least gave me an opportunity to grab a few shots of him while he was still.
I can’t wait to meet this sweet baby girl on the way. With her parents genes she is sure to be a gorgeous baby. I had so much fun with big brothers newborn photos as he was a stunning baby, so am hoping that her session will be just as fun. I am not exactly sure how the sibling shots will go. I have some brainstorming to do to see if we can find a way to make those a success!
