I had a blast doing this laid back indoor maternity session for our awesome neighbors. They are welcoming their first child, a little boy named Jackson into the world next month actually! We were scheduled to do our session at a beautiful lake nearby but, we got rained out. We all agreed that we could make the most of things by carrying on and doing our session indoors. I'll admit this had me a tiny bit nervous because I am not all that comfortable with indoor sessions when the sun isn't even out to shine into the house. Well, thank God for a decent flash and for an awesome couple who made the experience a positive first for me! This couple is so excited to be parents and I am so excited that I live right next door and will get to hold another tiny baby soon! YEAH! I got TONS of pictures that I loved but, this was my favorite shot of the day simply for it's artistic value. I like the focus on the name and the blur on the couple and the bare belly. So much is said without a ton of detail needed. LOVE IT!! I will post more over time. I have an engagement session at 8 AM tomorrow! Wow. That is early even for me to be up and out of the house. Oye.
Which of these shots do you like better? Black and white or a really simple, natural shot?
AND, this post would not be complete without a video of Daisy for our family to enjoy this weekend! She is having a blast carrying a bucket around the house and putting her toys in and out of it. She is carrying this bucket everywhere. Oh, and she growls whenever she falls down. It is a riot! Joey and I sat on the kitchen floor tonight as Daisy played with a bag of puzzle pieces and we just stared at her in absolute awe and adoration. I shared with Joey that I almost ache with the desire to capture her detail so vividly so I can hold that precious innocence in my heart forever. No amount of photos or videos can capture the beauty of a child that can be seen with my own eyes. Joey agreed that he too was feeling the same overwhelming love for our daughter. Who would have thought that such a sweet moment as a family could be had on the kitchen floor? lol
