I am so excited that not only did I get to photograph Melanie and Justin’s maternity session, but I will also be doing their newborn session in their home sometime next month! I can’t wait to meet their sweet little boy :) Melanie reminded me a lot of myself when I was pregnant, in fact, I even owned a very similar blue dress! I love how she rocks her perfect baby belly. She and Justin have a wonderful connection which was easy to see in the way they laughed and giggled together. I am so thankful that they trusted me to put them in weird positions, like laying on the ground or having a 9 month pregnant lady straddle her husband’s lap in a semi-tight dress. haha.
Discovery Park is one of my favorite places to shoot. Not only is it less than a mile from my house (bonus!) but it is so large that all of the sessions that you do there can look completely different. It was warm on the day of their maternity session, but there were hazy clouds giving us a unique look, different than days where I’ve shot when the sun was shining bright or there were heavy clouds overhead.
