This sweet young couple are expecting their first baby boy this July! As soon as I met Kat & Jan, I could feel the strength in their relationship. As beautiful a couple they make, they were also very kind. You could see it in their body language, in their voice, even in the early moments of the shoot where Kat was a bit nervous.
In no time, she loosened up and I got to capture some beautiful moments of Mom & Dad before their little guy arrived. These photo are memories they will have forever, and never fade.
Take a look at this lovely couple. They really were lovely - I do not just say that. Expecting their first child in October, they informed me that a boy was on the way. All babies are wonderful, but I do have a soft spot for newborn boys. * You can see their NEWBORN photos here!
I am sure you have read it before, but when I say that I LOVE photographing pregnant women, I really mean it. First of all, it gives a refreshing take on family portraits. I get to direct a woman to move around the light to capture her beauty in the best form. It also gives me a break from tickling little ones or imiatating fart noises to get them to laugh (Although it never gets old or un-funny!). Check out this mama. She is expecting a girl. This is her second child as she already has a boy. This session was unique that her older child was not a toddler or giggly preschooler. It was challenging to capture their love, but I did it and feel it is apparent below!
Photographing this little newborn boy, almost makes me want to have another baby. Like all newborns, he was sweet and made the most adorable newborn sounds while he was sleeping :) When I have a sessions like this, I feel lucky to get my newborn snuggles in between shots. It puts my biological clock in its place!
Spring if coming and that means more baby fever! I love this particular article on 'Baby Fever' in TIME magazine. Did you know men get it too?
