I was so happy and blessed to be able to photograph my beautiful daughter's maternity session in my studio this weekend. When she was pregnant with my granddaughter we did her maternity session outside in the snow so it was fun to be able to try something different (and much warmer too!!). We wanted to include her 3 year old daughter in some of the pictures so that's where we started. The tiny bear in a couple of the pictures is a special little bear I purchased to be able to use in some of my grandson's future newborn pictures (I can't wait!!). We started our session later in the evening after dinner and weren't surprised when my granddaughter lost interest pretty quickly. While she was off playing with her Papa it was so fun to have the time to try different lenses, poses, outfits etc. It's so funny how even the slightest change in a angle or pose can result in finding that sweet spot that you just know when you see it - I found myself saying over and over "hold that pose" as I marveled at the beautiful and miraculous curves of the pregnant body. When my daughter slipped into the lace gown for the second half of the session I could just see her glow as she cradled her precious belly with her loving hands. We ended our session with a couple of fun pictures where she just let loose. I just love capturing this special, fleeting time for expectant mothers in such a beautiful way.
