The more maternity sessions I do, the more I love them. I just love seeing the excitement of a new baby and the way each family prepares for their new arrival. I could tell this couple is thrilled for their new family member:) And they are prepared! Dad has already been to a daddy boot camp class, and they both were headed to their first pre-natal class that evening. And fur baby, Ella, is so sweet, I know she’ll be a great big sister:) I can’t wait to meet this little one in a few weeks and find out if he/she is a boy or a girl!
For this lifestyle maternity session, I ventured to the couple’s home in Bay Village, OH. Catherine wanted to capture some images in the nursery as well as get some great outdoor shots with the Lake Erie in the background. One of my favorite places to shoot is in someone’s own home and yard, I love that it gives such a personal touch to the photos.
When I first arrive at a home, the most important thing for me to do is to get a tour of the home and see the rooms we plan on shooting in and check out the available light. When we got to the nursery, my jaw dropped! It was so gorgeous, it looked like something right out of a magazine! So much thought and love went into this room. From the furniture to the wall art and the cloth diapers folded neatly in the drawer, no detail was spared. I knew we would get some great images in this room. And they definitely turned out to be some of my favorite shots from the session. What do you think?
Aren’t they such a lovely couple?
