We had a lovely relaxing long stroll to the end of the beach and back. I was expecting blue skies, but it was thick with cloud... so my timing was a bit off. It got dark... fast! It was super dark by the time we got back to our cars. But was so nice to be out and about on a calm evening at the beach.
I have said it before - I love maternity photography! The juxtaposition of emotions around the current family life dynamics and the anticipation of the new life ahead just get me every time. It's just such a monumental change, and I love documenting it.
I loved exploring the park with this lovely couple and their dog Rocky. We found lots of cute little pathways and spots for photos. I can't wait to meet their new addition in a few months!
I still can't believe I managed to convince these guys to come for a sunrise photo shoot on (what felt like) one of the coldest mornings of the year! Beach, beautiful light, lovely family... what more could you ask for? Here's just a few to feast your eyes on.
The weather wasn't playing nice for our maternity session, so rather than postpone, I decided to go ahead anyway. Dark rainy day photos inside with this wee family turned out perfect. And little miss 19 month old pulled out all the poses I asked her for! I so can't wait for her little brother to be born in a few weeks!
Oh and their PUPPY!!!! She is SO cute :)
With daughter number two due in a few weeks, Crystal is looking beautiful. It was a little bit harder to capture daughter number one quite so well - Morgan certainly is full of energy and determination and a whole lot of cheekiness!
Note to self: 19 month olds are really really hard to photograph in a group shot when they don't want to be photographed... or in their pretty skirt they were put in... or anywhere near mum's bump at all! But maybe ok to get a photo driving in their sweet new car.
