I’ve been photographing this family since their daughter was a baby. I love it when I get to celebrate the addition of a new family member with my clients. This wonderful family is soon expecting a son. When they were pregnant with their daughter, they were in another state had outdoor maternity pictures done. They wanted to do something totally different this turn around. She had the idea to go formal – which I LOVE. She had a floor length, black dress, with her husband in a suit and daughter in a formal dress. She found material to match their daughter’s dress and made a belt for herself and a pocket square for her husband. But she wanted to do something different, so while they are really dressed up, they were barefoot. Did I already say that I love this session? Seriously, how gorgeous is this? Their daughter couldn’t have been better behaved.
I can’t wait to see this family when they become a family of four.
We also did some pictures of just mom and dad in a starker setup with the white wall.
Then it was a time for some family snuggles on the bed. I bet we recreate this with the baby. I didn’t tell the girl to lay her head down, but I loved it.
It’s always important to get just mom and dad alone. So often we focus only on the kids, but remember, each family started with just two people in love.
I’ve been very bad about blogging lately, but I’ve been busy with a special project. I can’t release it yet, but I look forward to sharing it once I can! In the meantime, are you currently pregnant and looking for a maternity or newborn photographer? We hope you enjoy our work, and if you do, we hope you consider Firefly Nights Photography for your next portrait needs.
