waiting for baby q

I had never done a maternity photo shoot so when I found out that Katherine & Benny were expecting, my first question (after saying congrats of course) was ‘Can we do a maternity shoot this summer?!”  I’m so glad they agreed!

To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about taking maternity photos.  The industry is saturated with mostly-nude maternity style photos (think Demi Moore) and I knew I wouldn’t be comfortable with that.  Instead, I decided to apply my more casual, lifestyle approach and do these photos at a local park!

I really enjoyed doing a maternity session- it’s so similar to an engagement, where you can feel the love, excitement and anticipation between the couple.  Only for this session I got to say things like ‘turn a little more to your left to make your belly stick out’.  Can’t say I’ve EVER said that at a photo shoot before!

I’m so excited to find out if Baby Q is a boy or a girl [love the surprise!!] and to take newborn photos in about a month!  Congrats, Katherine & Benny!

Lovely! My favorite is the one where he’s kissing her cheek on the blanket. :)
