There is something about photographing maternity photos that makes me entirely happy. Everything about them makes me smile, from the love that is found in each shot, the conversations between shots about the dreams and hopes for the little one to be, to the sweet embraces that make me melt behind the lens. Two weekends ago ... I had the privilege to photograph the sweetest of couples. Their little one is due in June! Marc and I scouted our location a week prior and settled on one of my favorite college campuses and then some shots at a quaint community garden.
The community garden was a perfect spot to shoot as daffodils, tulips, and other Spring blooms were alive and everywhere. The weather the day of the shoot was anything but ideal ... cold ... really, really, really cold, scattered showers (but somehow we caught a lull in the storm) and a bit windy. BUT, I came prepared with a huge mug of lavender tea sweetened with honey and two umbrellas. I actually do love shooting when it is overcast as it makes for great photos. After a morning of lots of laughs, smiles, and love we parted with our couple but not for long. I am going to be photographing their sweet little bundle of joy for my first newborn shots ... and I can not be more excited. After the shoot Marc and I did what any caffeine deprived photographers would do ... we ordered a cap and a red velvet latte at one of our favorite cafes, sipped and reflected on the shoot, and when our cups were empty ... we hopped in the car ready for our next photography adventure.
