This session was SO much fun. A mix of intimate maternity photos and some documentary-style family fun, the entire morning was totally up my alley (who doesn't love brunch, amiright?!). Dawne is such a gorgeous mama and wanted to document this pregnancy as they await the arrival of their baby girl. She did such a fantastic job modelling and allowed me to get creative with some harsh lighting and I just loved the results! Then we got together with the rest of the family and captured them preparing and enjoying a delicious brunch. It was such a relaxed and enjoyable session and I can't wait to capture their baby girl when she arrives this month!
This family was every photographer's dream. Kind, laid back, well dressed, white walls (my fellow photographers will appreciate how much easier this makes our lives!) and so much love. Julia had given me the heads up that their son had a lot of energy, and he did not disappoint! He was constantly on the move and provided so many great moments that I had a hard time choosing which ones to post, so as you will see below I posted all of them (not actually, but close!). Julia and Daniel are expecting another baby boy in just a few weeks, and I am confident that he will be both well loved, and well entertained ;) Julia and Daniel, thank you for welcoming me into you home and trusting me to capture this beautiful time for your family.
Oh hey there! This golden-haired beauty that you're about to see below is my cousin Megan. We are the same age and have grown up together playing house, Barbies, and boarding school (complete with a mean headmistress), and even made our younger siblings dress up and marry one another with all of our stuffed animals lined up there as witnesses. Now twenty or so years later she is about to become a mom, and I think its safe to say that all of those games were good preparation for her next phase of life ;) Oh yes, also that guy in the photos is her husband Danny and he is awesome too. He was more than willing to trek into their backyard that had like 3 feet of snow without any boots so we could get a few more outdoor photos. That's a winner in my book! Anyway I could rant for a while about these two because I love them, but I'll let the love and joy in these photos speak for themselves. This baby is already so incredibly loved and cherished and I am so excited to capture their sweet baby when he or she makes their appearance in April.
