I can’t believe I was able to hold back from posting this session?!?! That’s how busy 2013 was for me! Being on maternity leave has given me a huge breather and I’ve been able to sit down and get organized! Elizabeth is absolutely stunning in her maternity portraits. She was set on having a few outdoor shots since it was summer, so we took it outside to my BACKYARD and took this amazing first shot below. We had to weave through some spider webs (eek!!!) and trek it a few feet to the trails that run all through my neighborhood, but the setting was just beautiful. I hope to go back there again for some of my maternity sessions I have set for this month. ;)
After braving the “forest”, we went back inside where we met up with dad for some of my signature studio shots. I just love the soft lighting of my maternity shoots! So pretty! I also got a little creative and utilized the beautiful natural pine flooring of my studio for a shot of Elizabeth laying down. Love this pose! Elizabeth also brought a few dresses with her and when I saw the white one, I just knew I had to photograph her in it. So gorgeous!!! Their little boy Alexander was absolutely beautiful during their newborn session which I will eagerly post as I get down the list of sessions from last year. ;)
