I just cannot get over this maternity session!
I was so geeked to use my new lace gown, which was actually white when I bought it. It didn’t have that soft vintage vibe that I love so much, so the morning of Sam’s shoot I threw the dress in a stock pot filled with tea and tea stained it! I also made the halo she’s wearing on her head in some of the photos. Sam is one of the most stunning mamas I’ve ever seen, she really wears the belly well and was so easy to pose. She also gave me complete artistic freedom to do whatever I wanted which is a photographer’s dream come true!
I can’t pick an absolute favorite from this session (there are just too many!), but there are 2 shots that daddy Brad looks so excited and happy and there’s just something about those that I adore! Pregnancy is usually all about mama, after all, growing a baby is really hard work! But, it’s important to remember daddy is just as thrilled to become a parent and I’m so glad I was able to capture that for Brad and Sam.
I cannot wait to meet this sweet baby boy and cuddle him and hug him and oh yeah….. I probably should take some pictures of him too! 😉
