Here I am finally posting a maternity shoot I took in April. What I can say? This mom was (is) GORGEOUS. I still can’t believe she was just three weeks away from giving birth. . . she looked so great.

It is pretty funny how I actually met her. My oldest daughter can be quite persistent to put it mildly. When one of her teachers announced that anyone who got permission from parents could take a crayfish home after they were done with the unit, my daughter got it in her head that she not only needed one but needed one of only two that had eggs. In order to accomplish this, she needed me to come to school with a vessel we could transport this new pet home in. After much begging and pleading, I agreed to met her at school exactly when it ended so she could be one of the firs to her crayfish.

When I got there, I noticed her teacher for this was pregnant. I was shocked to hear how far along she was; she just looked so great. Pregnancy really suited her! That evening I wrote her a note about having a shoot. Within the week we were shooting.

Although it was April, it was COLD. It had snowed the day before and there was a bit of a wind. To their credit, they never complained. They came prepared with more outfits than they needed and lots of accessories. Perfect! We incorporated the best ones and had an awesome time. I just love the connection between them; they were naturals in front of the camera!
