When I photograph clients for their maternity session, I am always delighted when they also book their newborn photos with me because it means I get to eventually meet the little one!  (It’s one of the reasons I began offering my Maternity and Newborn packages.) When I’m awaiting the news of a birth from a client, I tend to check my texts a little more frequently than usually.  It’s such an exciting time!

I first met these two lovely moms early in the Fall for their maternity session. It’s always joyous photographing first time parents because their anticipation and excitement comes through in their photos. I was eagerly awaiting hearing from them that Ms A had arrived and was thrilled when she finally came into the studio for her session. She wasn’t keen on sleeping but we managed to lull her off into dreamland and she was so lovely to photograph. I couldn’t get enough of her dark hair and her pouty little lips.

I love when clients bring in special items for their sessions. We used the snuggly cow stuffed animal during the maternity session so of course it had to make an appearance, with an adorable knitted calf hat, for the newborn session. Her mama also wore the purple scarf during her maternity session and I love that we were able to wrap Baby A up in it for her newborn photos. It’s so special to use these simple props because they can be incorporated into photos for years to come.
