Everyone knows I love my newborn sessions, but I can’t tell you how much I enjoy also getting to meet the parents for a maternity session before their baby arrives. It gives us a chance to get to know each other a little, and a huge perk is occasionally being the first and only person to know the name that they have settled on 😉
Meet Josh and Jackie, a gorg couple who booked my Belly to Baby package! Enjoy a few of my favorites from their maternity session:
The evening of their session was pretty overcast, which is a bummer if I’m going for that dreamy golden hour look, but when we were nearing the end the sun suddenly came out from behind the clouds. They were in a seated position out in a field, and I MAY have yelled in excitement! I was thrilled and loved the resulting images.
It was great meeting them, and once the session was over it was time to wait for baby! Their sweet girl was finally born, but had a little bit of a rough start and wasn’t able to come and see me until she was about 3.5 weeks old. Some photographers would worry about waiting that long, but there is really no need. Occasionally it may take a newborn who is that old a little longer to fall asleep, but I’ve had great luck with babies that old, and Baby B was no exception. She slept almost straight through and was a champion poser.
I am in love with her whole session, but here are a few of my favorites:
