I was excited to take maternity photos with this Foster City pregnant couple. The to-be mom is gorgeous – model-worthy gorgeous – and guess what? Turns out she is in fact a former model turned corporate executive powerhouse. The expecting dad was hilarious and kept me on my toes the entire shoot. I’d provide them with posing direction and say, for example, “CAN you move your hand here?” And if he didn’t do it I’d say it again and finally he told me I sounded like I was giving him the option when really I was should’ve said “Move your hand here or off with it!” (: I thought it was so funny – but it was a very good point. The hubby was super chill too. Just went with the flow. I think he’s probably used to photoshoots because of his former model wifey.
As mention, they’re a Foster City pregnant couple so when I asked about location the expecting mom said she’d like photos in nature and if possible with some water. I knew the perfect location in Foster City to take them and boy did it turn out beautiful for us that day. You can’t tell, but the day their session took place it was freezing – like arctic cold. But they were total troopers. By the end of the shoot my fingers were white and frozen and everyone was numb from head to toe.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention that we took these photos when the expecting mom was about 39 weeks pregnant. Insane! She looked amazing! You’d never know she was due at any moment. Now, I don’t recommend waiting this long to have maternity photos taken for a variety of reasons. Such as, baby being born before the pregnancy photos are taken, or typically by 39 weeks expecting moms are extremely tired and swollen and lastly, bellies can grow to be quite large. And while I love me a large beautiful belly many moms don’t want all their photos to be with a extra huge belly (obvs). Moral of this story, don’t wait to take photos. But if you do, know that I’ll expect you to be as brave and nimble to walk and climb around as this expecting mama. 🙂
Anyways, enjoy these portraits of this Foster City pregnant couple.
