I was pretty excited about this session, not only because I am ALWAYS excited to do belly pictures, but because this was the very first time I would do a maternity session primarily outdoors. I was a little nervous as to whether I would get the poses right, whether the two of them would be ok with my rather frazzled way of going about things (I like to keep things spontaneous and most times really don’t have a 100% laid out plan as to what I’m going to shoot and how) and of course I was also anxious about the weather. Long story short, I was nervous. LOL
Turns out, none of my concerns were justified: The weather was absolutely phenomenal; not too much sun, not too cloudy – just right for my taste. The “posing” question pretty much vanished into thin air as soon as we got started because both Jim and Monica are such unbelievable naturals in front of the camera that I hardly had to waste a thought on what would look right and what wouldn’t. Seriously stunning. And they also took care of concern number three and my fear of seeming a little clueless as to the sequence of things: They went right along with it and made these 2 1/2 hours of constant shooting fly by like a walk in the park. Loved it!
Thank you both, Monica and Jim, for coming out and giving me the opportunity to be my frazzled self and still end up with (what I think) absolutely beautiful pictures of a gorgeous couple and their super cute baby belly :) I can’t wait to see you again later this summer! (hint, hint)
Here’s a small glimpse into what we walked away with last Saturday:
