Oh, Baby!

I've had a few newborn sessions here and there, but got to do my first maternity shoot last night with an incredible couple! They're having their first baby - a little girl! And asked me to capture this short (though sometimes painfully long) time in their lives. I know too well what it's like to feel pregnant and want to freeze that wonderful, powerful time, but also want it to end like yesterday. Michele looked like a beautiful glowing goddess at her session, and I just hope I was able to capture that feeling for her to remember forever.

The weather was clear (though hot - thanks summer!) and it was beautiful out and the lighting was gorgeous and I'm not sure I could have asked for a better day to do this : ) This photo was taken in the evening with an external flash. Notice the awesome out of focus greenery in the foreground!

Some more photos from the maternity shoot can be found in the new Maternity Album.
