A "this-is-not-a-maternity-session" session

November 02, 2014  •  1 Comment

When Sarah contacted me about a session for her and her husband, she mentioned that she's pregnant, but she didn't want a "maternity" session. Sarah wanted some nice pictures of her with her husband, and she just happens to be pregnant. Okay, we can do this! We'll take pictures of the couple, not focused on "the belly," but on them. 

Sarah and Roland recently moved from Bluffton to the Atlanta area, and on the weekend that they came back to town for their session, a cold front swept in. We chatted earlier in the day and decided that, regardless of the wind and drizzle, we'd still meet at the planned time, and see what we could do. It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon.

When we arrived at the location, we again reviewed the plan. In Sarah's words, I could treat this like an engagement session, except the couple is already married and pregnant. Got it!

Still, I couldn't resist a few "mom and dad" shots. Proud dad, glowing mom, don't you think?

And Sarah even piped in and asked for a "belly shot" so we got one of those, too!

In the end, I feel like we got the shots that Sarah was after, plus some special expectant parent shots to help them remember this special time. Thanks, Sarah & Roland! And best wishes with your bundle of joy!
