Sometimes I just laugh (in my head) at the parents during the sessions. This mama thought her daughter was doing so terrible and I kept assuring her that she was fine and I was getting some good shots. I loved the email I received after the session saying this, “Susan, I got the cd with all the pics and the photos are great! You did an awesome job!” I’m glad they were happy and I’ll see them soon when their new bundle arrives!
Some women are afraid of maternity photos and some really embrace them. I showed this couple a handful of photos when we first met to see what they liked and didn’t like. They were both natural in front of the camera and we had a really fun session. To see more from this session, check the maternity portfolio.
Less than 2 weeks ago I had a maternity session with a couple who were past their due date with their first child. Now, I just had the pleasure of meeting their new baby girl, Lillian. She did excellent during her session and slept the majority of the time. The shot on the right was taken at the very end of the session, after she woke up. I love how alert her eyes are and I think that one is so sweet.
This was a first for me. I shot a maternity session the day AFTER the due date. That being said, doesn’t she look amazing! We were hiking all around this park and climbing hills in the snow. I was a little worried I was going to send her into labor, but she was so hilarious and kept saying she was fine. What a fun session this was! I’m sure I’ll have a newborn post with them within a couple weeks.
