After hanging up from our planning call several months ago, I thought to myself - "oh, they're going to be fun."
Alex's personality is so down to earth and her openness and excitement for our shoot was so energizing! Like most couples, Alex and Steve hadn't had photos together since their wedding, which left a sour taste in their mouth (that inside joke is for them ;-) ). I was anxious to give them an experience that suited their style, was comfortable and enjoyable, and created images that they could hold dear as the beginning of their next adventure.
Alex's vision for their maternity shoot was one that featured glowy light and rustic touches -- so this natural location at sunset seemed like the perfect choice. Did I mention that it was really cold that night? But guess what... you probably can't tell from the pictures because this mama-to-be is a rockstar. She may have been shivering under a blanket between shots but when we were ready, she totally pulled it together and smiled in that spring dress like it was 70 degrees.
I'm so excited to have the opportunity to work with these two again when their family becomes 3! Check out some of my favorites from their maternity session below and meet their little man when he joins us this April! :-)
