CAN YOU SAY AMAZING BABY BUMP?
This expecting mom and her family made our jobs just far to easy. Can you call it a j-o-b if it doesn’t feel like work? It felt more like I was meeting a friend for an afternoon walk to the creek. She and her family both were such warm open folks that they felt like I had known them my entire life. It was a huge compliment that they traveled from Raleigh NC to have me photograph their maternity session…huge!
I shot this maternity session with a combination of lenses…I used my Nikon 50mm prime for the family shots……it is a dinosaur and I really need to invest in a new one. I used my 70-200mm nikon in the creek. I will at times take my 200mm f2 but the dark clouds that day had me worried that it may rain and thats my baby, it can’t get wet 🙂 cause I can’t afford another one of those!
We always start off shooting warm up pictures and then at this location we also get images in the woods and on walking paths. We hit the creek last as most of the time hair is wet etc…… bring your bug spray,towel and walking shoes for sure!
And of course it wouldn’t be a complete session without adding dad and soon to be big sis in the photos. Have I mentioned that Amber my partner in crime is amazing with children? One of her favorite games to play with children was a favorite of mine as a child….bubble gum, bubble gum….do you know that game played by counting toes?
I had to add the behind the scenes photo of dad playing with little while we photographed mom’s baby bump.
