Correct me if I’m wrong, but it seems there is a special level of cuteness specifically reserved for expectant mothers. I think the order goes; puppies, bunnies, and pregnant mamas?
I’ve always heard people talk about ‘that glow’ that a pregnant woman has. Perhaps some women seem to have a little more ‘glow’ than others, either way, this was a woman who was glowing. It was such a blessing to get to know this mama and dad to be. When they talked about their new little person on her way out, it was with so much excitement and joy. The details of waiting for baby, the excitement of planning and getting things ready, it was just so neat to have a gimps of it all. All I could think was what a blessed little girl this was going to be, to have parents who adored her like they did before they’d even met her. Love it.
And besides all that, she was adorable. I love photography for so many reasons, but like anything you love, it’s possible to burn out on it. One of the things that I continually try and bring to my clients is something different. Maternity sessions are challenging because they can tend to all blend together at some point. As a photographer, my goal and passion is bringing out the story of who you are, and not letting anything about your session blend together. The opportunity to get to know each person who steps in front of my camera is so important and such a blessing, but it becomes especially amazing when it’s a couple like this. They just radiated joy, fun and ‘of course we’d be happy to lay in that field so you can take our picture’… basically a client match made in heaven. Sigh.
Our location had a ranch style feel to it, which I thought was just perfect for this couple. I absolutely loved their clothing choices as well, bright and fun, just like them. This is one of those sessions I can honestly say I think we had a blast making these images together.
