Christy and I have known each other for almost 20 years! We initially met in a college internship program, only to find out that we were also sorority sisters (skee-wee!). We’ve kept in touch over the years and also work together in real estate.
I was so overjoyed when I found out that she was expecting! Just last year, I captured her and Vince for their engagement photos. They got married and are now expecting their first child together!
I typically recommend that expectant mamas have their maternity portraits taken between 28 and 32 weeks; however, there are some times when that doesn’t always work out. In this case, we were down to the wire on taking maternity photos, so I offered to come to their home to take a few photos before the arrival of their new baby.
I brought a few gowns from my home studio for her to choose from, set up in their living room, and went to work!
Here are a few of my favorite shots from their session.
Whew—we made it! And just TWO days later, their beautiful, healthy baby boy was born! It was such a pleasure to capture these photos for them. I love that they will be able to look back on these for years to come and remember the great time we had right before the baby was born. What a story to tell!
If you are expecting a baby and would like to capture these special moments with a photo session, I’d love the opportunity to work with you! Send me a message today so that we can begin planning your perfect photo session.
