Adventures in photography! I had the wonderful opportunity a few years ago to photograph this young couple’s wedding. It was a whirlwind experience coming together in a few weeks. Such a beautiful, loving couple. You can imagine how excited I was when I heard that they were expecting and that they were interested in maternity pictures. If you follow my work, you may notice that this is not an area that I photograph- actually, I’ve only done maternity pictures two other times and they were both when I first was starting out. I was really nervous. I even debated taking on this session but it’s good to try new things, to push myself artistically. I had the perfect location in mind. The weather was beautiful. The wildflowers were blooming. Sharon and John were already in love with this little bundle they were waiting on.
Then, a couple of weeks later, I got the call that baby arrived. This is my love. This is where I’m at ease with what I do. Yes, it’s challenging. Yes, it’s tiring but all that is pushed aside when you are doing something that you love. Cuddling a newborn. Watching the new family. Capturing those details that change so quickly because they grow so fast.
We also decided to do a few lifestyle images.
