Doing maternity portraits, especially when both parents take part, is really special to me. I like to be able to show off that belly – but there’s something much more important I like to highlight, and that is the relationship between the Mommy and Daddy-to-be – and their anticipation and love for their upcoming addition. Doing this in the studio allows me the chance to use some dramatic lighting (flattering for EVERYone) to really highlight the mood, and show the beauty of Mom… Love these portraits!

I love maternity sessions – they are filled with such anticipation and joy – I love capturing that love and excitement – it reminds me of my own pregnancies, and I get so excited for my clients at what they are about to embark upon! Meet Lori & Jaime – I’m sure two of the best parents out there!
I really enjoyed working with The K’s – we had a chance to do some portraits both in studio, and outside. This shot is always one of my favorite angles to shoot with an expectant couple – so I’ll leave you with just one from their session…

This blog post, while very late, is fitting today – because today I actually shot this beautiful couple’s newborn portraits of their 6-day old son. These maternity portraits were taken back in July – it was the beginning of this heat wave we are in – and T & Patchi were such troupers – they agreed to meet at 7:30 a.m. (that’s IN THE MORNING) to get their session done before it got too hot. We were able to use a private residence with a yard that was a DREAM – I so love shooting in new locations! If you’d like to check out their new son – head on over to my Facebook page – I just posted a quick one today, because I could not stand to share at least one!
I also have to add… Lately I have had an opportunity to do more maternity portraits, and then come back later for newborn portraits. Part of what I do is capture the connections and relationships of a family – whether it be one just in the beginning stages, or one that has been going strong for some time. I find it makes such a huge difference when I have a chance to meet a couple and get to know them during their maternity session – the newborn session just seems that much more special, and I really do feel like I gain new friends with each couple I meet and follow through this exciting first year!

Shawane & Mike are such a sweet couple. They are expecting their first baby together – but between them, this will be baby #7! This baby is going to be so blessed to have six big brothers and sisters, on top of a wonderful set of parents… I can’t wait to meet him!
