I was so excited when my sister called me in half hysterics and half uncontrollable excitement to tell me she thought there might be a second line on her pregnancy test. Another baby for me to love on!!! And then 2 weeks later I found out I was pregnant too!! OMG. Sisters 9 days apart both pregnant with BOYS, this is a dream come true for anyone that thinks of her sister as one of her very best friends.
Nicole, her husband Brad and my niece Adrienne came over this past weekend for their maternity shoot. I tried out something new with them and I’m super excited about it. I did half the shoot with more of a lifestyle feel and the second half with a “posed” studio feel. I honestly think it turned out BEAUTIFUL!
I’m beyond excited to start offering “Lifestyle” Maternity & Newborn sessions as an add on to a studio session. The session I did with my sister was in my bedroom. It’s bright and airy and super simple. It really allowed me to focus on them as a family and couple in a more natural feeling environment and I truly captured honest belly laughs out of all of them.
I think this will be an amazing option for family newborn sessions with young toddlers. With a 1.5 year old little boy myself, I can truly appreciate the stress of trying to get a toddler to focus and pose and smile for a picture. None of that with my soon to be offered lifestyle sessions! Stay tuned, but for now here are some of the images from the session!
**Gowns and Maternity Wardrobe are an inclusive option with all maternity shoots.
