There’s a first time for everything, I shot a newborn session just yesterday…with my big belly and all! I stopped scheduling sessions after the middle of April…the belly was getting in the way and a few complications that had me on modified bedrest. But this session, it had been tentatively scheduled since the family knew they were expecting their third and final baby. And for a very special reason.
Shortly after I found out I was pregnant, I was at this family’s house. Anyways, at one point the mother and I were alone in a room and I just looked at her saying that I had to a secret I had to tell. I just blurted it out, ” I’m pregnant!” She then grabs my hands and shouts that she’s pregnant too! Before I knew it, we were both like giggly girls happy to share the news. LOVE LOVE that memory.
Photographing their family now as a family of 5, just worked out …by pure luck. The days around the due date, I was slightly stressed in knowing that I was scheduled to have my baby just two weeks afterwards. Their due date came and went. Then that one text came in, the text I had been waiting for….she was in labor! I couldn’t have been happier because photographing this family was important to me. Over the past five years, I’ve watched their family grow and being a part of this big milestone for them was a special feeling.
Granted, the day before their session the mother texted me and asked if I may have had my baby yet.:) The memories that will go with this session are classic and funny!
Introducing their third and final baby, Baby Quinn.
My favorite outtakes from the session. ADORE ADORE ADORE!
