I happen to work with this beautiful mama in labor and delivery, and she truly is as gorgeous on the inside as out. She booked me for her newborn session months before her due date (which I highly recommend) and when I asked her a couple of times whether she wanted a maternity session as well, she sort of hummed and hawed about it and was worried she was too big, too far along, and blah, blah, blah. I offer mini maternity sessions for all of my clients that book a newborn session with me, and at a discounted rate, because I really truly love documenting pregnancies. I really feel that not only are you documenting such a special and amazing time in life as a woman, and for families expecting a baby, but also providing the most amazing memories for your children to look back on. I believe they are just as much for your kids as for you.
I had another local photographer here in Las Vegas ask me to mentor her for a session and particularly wanted to work on backlighting (one of my favorite types of light to shoot with) and immediately I knew it would be the perfect way to finally persuade Devyn to do it. I offered her a model call, which meant she got some images of herself and her family in exchange for being our model, how can anyone say no to that, and she didn't!
Here are some of my favorite images from her session.
