I just photographed this family’s new sweet baby boy, and cannot wait to upload that gallery to the blog! This maternity session was all about connecting and being together before their family turned into four. Adding a second child to your tribe is such a wonderful time to celebrate! But those last few weeks as a family of three – all you’ve ever known – is something to be cherished and treasured.
Your baby is turning into a big sibling, you’re about to experience that sweet newborn stage all over again, and your hearts are about to grow with double the love. These pictures are ones that will always remind you of that special bond between you and your first child.
Let Kids Be Kids
Rowan loved snuggling her mama’s belly and exploring in the field finding bugs and snails. Kids thrive when they are able to just be themselves in a natural environment – I will guide families into natural and candid moments so that every image I capture is at your most natural and comfortable.
The best shots are when you’ve forgotten about all that’s around you, and you’re locked in the moment of being present and enjoying that wonderful quality time with your family. So let your kids wander our location, let them pick up sticks and play in the grass. Their natural smiles will come out, they will entertain themselves, and the result will product the most memorable images of their childhood.
Capturing Memories At Every Stage
This family, like many of my clients, are part of my Collective Membership Program – so I will get to capture Henry’s baby milestones as well! It’s so important to me to document all that life you experience with your little ones while they grow. Especially during the first year, all mamas want to do is soak in every single moment with their babies and connect with their growing family. Being present during that time is what makes your motherhood journey so memorable! Having those Collective Membership sessions scheduled (newborn, 6 months, first birthday) will guarantee images that wonderfully capture your sweet babe’s budding personality as they grow.
Turning Your Dreams For Your Photos Into Reality
When we chatted about mom’s hopes for the session she told me she wanted “the perfect mommy daughter photo, and to capture this point in time when I’m still her favorite. For the three of us, capturing the natural family connection, smiles and laughter. All with that perfect lighting!” I always love to hear what clients envision for their portrait session before we work together. It gives me a sense of the memories and emotion you’d most love to capture! This way every image you receive is exactly what you pictured – beautiful, natural, and organic images of you and your precious family.
