Happy Mother's Day!
I cannot think of a better way to honor all the things that being a mom means any more than sharing this celebration beautiful of Motherhood!
Angie is expecting her second child, a sweet baby girl.
She had a vision for her session- it need to be romantic, feminine, and in the water.
Immediately I was hooked.
I've been wanting to do a styled maternity session for some time, and our vision for the session was the same-
Romantic, dreamy and focused on the connection between mother and child.
I love this image of Angie and her son, Caleb. It has a very "earth mother" feel to it.
I loved being pregnant. It is such a time to embrace the beauty of your ever-changing body and
to savor the tiny flutterings of the new life growing inside you.
I provided the blush maternity gown, handmade from one of my favorite vendors on
http://www.etsy.com. The color and fit complimented her skin and blossoming belly beautifully!
I hand crafted her floral crown just for this session. I love flowers of all kinds and so enjoyed putting together a special piece for Angie to wear.
I selected a location local to Woodstock that I knew would have warm and delicious light in the evening. We couldn't have been happier!
The evening sun offered a perfect backlight to our warm and dreamy session.
Big brother to-be, Caleb, listens to sister's heartbeat.
Oh, Momma. You have a beautiful son.
He has the sweetest, most tender personality. My daughter, Ava, often joins me as my assistant on outdoor shoots.
She and Caleb made instant friends. He watched her every move and she played with him while Mom and Dad enjoyed some special moments together.
Perfectly radiant little momma.
Isn't she gorgeous?! Such perfect skin and just a radiantly beautiful momma-to-be.
I love how we see a little peek of that perfect little tummy!
Funny story - When we moved into the water for the last portion of our session, I helped Angie into the river.
I got in ahead of her to make sure we had good footing. Just before I shot this image, I stepped backwards in the river and into a gaping hole. Where I had been knee deep in the water, I suddenly found myself with water above my waist and my camera overhead! One more step in the other direction and I sank even lower. I got soaking wet but you bet your buttons that my camera didn't get a drop on it. Everything else can go down, but this girl is going to save her camera!
Isn't she just radiant?
I just loved this session and this precious family. Angie had such a wonderful vision for her maternity session and
I was so excited to bring it all to life for her.
