It is really funny the way life works out. I remember losing my marbles of Kristen’s first maternity shoot when she was pregnant with her first-born Madison. It was so amazing to see the change from expecting to taking the photos of her holding her newborn. It was such an intimate thing to be a part of, though I secretly hoped it wouldn’t be the last time. When she and her husband called me telling me they were expecting, I couldn’t wait and immediately started brainstorming maternity shoot ideas for them. Now that there is big-sister Madison, I knew an outdoor maternity session was the way to go. Early October, the foliage, the sweaters, the belly – how could it go wrong?
I couldn’t have even imagined how great the photos were going to come out. Everyone was so happy and the weather was perfect. It if it was up to me, I’d take a maternity shoot of this family every year. I’m sure Kristen wouldn’t go for that (haha!) so it’s a good thing it’s not up to me.
I’ll be anxiously checking my phone until the little one makes an appearance.
