Wowza – love this maternity session. This gorgeous mama is expecting her first baby and it’s a girl!!! The expecting parents are elated. They’re getting ready for the arrival of their little baby girl and are busily getting their house and nursery put together. In fact, they said they were wanting to move soon. Seems like that’s the thing expecting parents do, and for good reason. But hopefully they’ll get moved and settled before baby comes! Because for us parents, we know once baby arrives, things can get a little hectic transitioning into this new life.
When I spoke with mama about her maternity portraits she said she really wanted photos in nature and like photos that were a little moody. I had the perfect location lined-up and I love the way the light is streaming through the trees for the perfect balance of mood and etherial light.
I could not agree more with this quote about pregnancy: “Pregnant women! They had that weird frisson, an aura of magic that combined awkwardly with an earthy sense of duty. Mundane, because they were nothing unique on the suburban streets; ethereal because their attention was ever somewhere else. Whatever you said was trivial. And they had that preciousness which they imposed wherever they went, compelling attention, constantly reminding you that they carried the future inside, its contours already drawn, but veiled, private, an inner secret.”– Ruth Morgan
