Maternity Photography as a Gift

This sweet husband surprised his wife with a gift card in the mail from me to get her maternity portraits taken! She was thrilled!
There was such a happy feeling photographing these new parents. So much joy now and hope for their new little one coming soon! 

Session details - Their Home, outside using mostly eucalyptus trees. Natural light, the sky had high bright clouds. Session time about 30 minutes. The pup wanted to join in a few pictures, so we happily included him. I went back and forth between my two favorite lenses.

Large Family at Anthem Community Park

Photographing a Family with six kids meant that they were relaxed and made each other laugh!  I started photographing mom and dad first and the kids just hung out and talked in the background.  The waterfall background was perfect for their portraits.  We did a lot of combinations of posing, which is normal (just the girls, just the boys, siblings, etc.).  My favorites are the individuals of each child.  I purposely posed them in the same place so all of their images would match.  And at the end, they wanted a funny one for their mom.  They said they do the same pose often but in different places.  They all started skipping together and I just clicked away.  We all had a good laugh!
