are a kind of appetizer. It’s a stage of anticipation for the parents, and it’s an introduction to the many courses of family photography to come. I love the opportunity to give families a taste of working with me in these preliminary sessions.
My maternity sessions are reserved exclusively for families who book me for newborn photos. The maternity session is my gift to them, and our chance to meet and get to know each other, before I come into their home in the hazy chaos of newborn life. So that when I show up to document their new little one, we’re already friends.
I loved meeting this family, which already includes two “little ones” – a pair of adorable Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, who were gracious enough to get into some of the photos. Something about these elegant dogs totally elevates these photographs – I felt like I was shooting royalty. Another thing that really stood out to me was how much love and connection between Tara and Jason just jumped out from the photos.
See for yourself.
