This beautiful mother-to-be and her husband are expecting a beautiful little girl! I could not be more excited for them! They are first-time parents, so when they called to schedule a maternity session, I couldn’t wait to get them in and help them celebrate this wonderful stage before they become a family of three.
For first-time parents, they both appeared so incredibly calm. They couldn’t have been any easier to photograph, and they seemed to know exactly what they were doing with just a little guidance from me. Once Baby gets here, it is a whirlwind of adventure, so I wanted them to use this session to focus on each other and take it all in.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t become less busy during pregnancy, so I always encourage couples to make time to enjoy the moment like these two did. Pause to appreciate the beauty of pregnancy as well as your relationship with each other as a couple. The family dynamics are about to change (in wonderful ways), but don’t forget to take some time for yourselves before your little one’s arrival.
To describe this session in one word: lovely. Daniella moves with such grace and serenity. After each wardrobe change, I was blown away by how incredible the dresses looked on her. She made the pictures come alive! We did a few couple’s portraits outdoors in the fresh air, then we came in for some dreamy – and sexy! – portraits of this gorgeous mama-to-be. What an amazing thing her body is doing, and what a process worth celebrating! After doing several light and airy photos with soft sunlight streaming in through a window, we also photographed a black and white silhouette image showcasing her bump. I hope this image shows her just how beautiful she is and that she feels proud and confident.
Daniella’s amazing husband certainly reiterated that, as he was incredibly attentive throughout the shoot. It’s easy to see that he’s enthralled by his lovely bride and so proud of her for carrying their child. Their photos together were some of my favorites – especially the photo of him kissing her growing bump. Whether they know it or not, these two are so ready to be parents. Their love for each other is inspiring, and there’s no doubt that love will carry over in the way that they raise their little girl. She is already loved and cared for so much. I can’t wait to meet her!
Congratulations to this happy couple!
