After talking on and off for a few months it was so nice to finally meet Heather in person! She also had her mother in tow for the session and she was equally as delightful. Heather is a super duper talented artist so if any of you need any customized web designs, invitations, birth announcements, you name it she can do it! Check her out at Heather Hazard Design. Miss Emmalyn (isn’t that the most beautiful name you’ve ever heard???) wasn’t too into the whole picture thing so when we finally were able to get her to sleep I took advantage of it, shooting tons of angles if the same set ups. This if just the first few, I have to save some surprises for her parents so I can’t show them all! Enjoy 🙂
I have to admit, I was a little nervous before this session, usually my clients are so excited to get their pictures taken, but Megan was really apprehensive. I can totally relate, I really hate anyone taking my picture. (Ironic I know) It was super important to me to make sure that she was relaxed and that she enjoyed herself so we could capture some beautiful maternity images for her to cherish. My usual style is to photograph really close up with a very blurred background, but in this case I wanted to pull back more. In order to do that I needed a really great backdrop, and I knew just the place! I am so happy that she trusted me with this. We took these photos at a small creek near my house at sunset. I have been wanting to photograph here for a long time but because of the super narrow docks/open water there isn’t much room. (usually I have more than one person with me and more than likely there are small children around) Everything worked out perfect for this session, beautiful mama to be, beautiful scenery, beautiful weather! I couldn’t ask for more. I hope that you all enjoy them as much as I do!!
This session was so much fun! I am so glad that I have been able to get to know this amazing couple. Our husbands work together so it was an extra fun treat that my hubby and son tagged along so we could all get dinner after. (Perk of sessions at Mike’s Farm) This is just a small sampling from our time together. I can’t wait to do the second half of this session with Erin, it is going to be amazing!
I already shared some of these on my Facebook page, but I had a request for some more! I am so happy that I was able to do this family’s maternity session, newborn session, and now his 3 month session. One of the best parts of my job is watching babies grow and all of you allowing me to be a part of these special milestones!
