This mama was in our birth class at HB over the winter and she wanted some pics done as a Father’s Day gift for her husband.  I love pregnant mamas, as most of you know, and to work with them prenatally in an educational setting and being able to photograph is quite the treat!

Her laugh and smile were so sweet –




The lighting in her stairway was quite dramatic and of course I loved that…



And the covering here was her wedding veil.  I love it when folks find their own coverings and props – it just makes it that much more special.



And then – the babe.  Oh what a treat….


(Doesn’t she have the most perfect pixie “cut”?)

I have a love for “grooming” shots with new parents – and in talking with other photographers, I know I’m not alone.  There is something so gentle and loving about the ways parents touch their babes…

I love the wedding photos they had hanging over their bed – such a great collection of b&ws!LMW_3873

Thanks for a couple of beautiful sessions mama, in your very zen and wonderful home.  (I have to say this is a perk of photographing young babies in their spaces – the opportunity to see so many different and lovely homes!)

a belly and a baby….

These two mamas were beautiful during pregnancy, birth, and in that glowy afterwards….






Congrats beautiful mamas!
