My view of maternity photos may be slightly skewed, but I see them as one of the most important sessions, especially if it's your second or third child and you'll be changing up the family dynamics. My super talented friend, Lindsay, of lindsaylaraephotography.com, has the sweetest little family of 3, and soon they'll be adding one more. Baby girl will be arriving at the end of May (she has the *best* name picked out, but I won't spoil the fun), and this amazing family asked me to also do a fresh baby newborn session for them in the hospital. I can't wait! This session was a blast. The joy on their faces says it all. And I clearly remember during the mom/daughter shots hearing Joe say "Look at those gorgeous blondies! My beautiful girls!" I loved that. I love hearing family members talk eachother up. And I love editing sessions where you can *see* the love. It makes for a one of a kind shoot. The kind of photos that you'll pass by on the wall and smile.
The best thing anyone can do during a photo session is to let down your guard, love on eachother, and soak up the moment. And I'll be there to capture it all.
