Joe & Kaci's Maternity Session

Joe & Kaci brought along their adorable, fluffy pup, Chip, and he almost stole the spotlight! I said almost because this expecting mama is absolutely glowing!

It's always special to be able to capture the moment before parents welcome a new addition to their family, but I started to question myself on how I can give their gallery a deeper significance. I wait towards the end of the session and ask each of my maternity clients to hold their bump close, look down, close their eyes, and think about what they want to say to their little one. Affirmations, hopes, dreams, an expression of love. As they do, I quietly photograph this intimate moment. I get a glimpse of a genuine connection between a mother and their unborn child, and that mama will forever be able to look at that photo and remember exactly what they were feeling and thinking. Those images are always my favorite in the gallery. They are authentically beautiful.
