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.
Valentine mini project.
1. Cut a heart out of an index card.
2. Use it to frame, look for visually pleasing patterns and shapes.
3. Take a picture.
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!
