When Theresa was pregnant with her third baby, I waited for a little bit and then when I couldn't wait any longer asked if she wanted to schedule a maternity session with me, hahaha. I was excited because Theresa was so supportive and kind and encouraging when I first started my business in 2012 and was one of my very first clients. I photographed her maternity session when she was pregnant with her second baby. And then when that baby was born, I photographed his newborn session. These were both my first maternity and newborn sessions. And Theresa and her hubby Chris were so great, and patient, and helpful. So anyway, when I found out that she was pregnant with a baby girl (!!!) I was so excited for them. They both work very hard and so we ended up having to schedule the session later than normal, and it happened to be right on her due date! Photographing these guys is so great, they seem to be very comfortable in front of the camera and I think part of that is because they just do what they do. They laugh, play, make jokes, and their photos end up looking natural.
So for this session, we also got some family photos as well. The two boys are excited to be big brothers (well, one of them already is, so he's a pro) and they were so sweet when talking about their baby sister that would be coming along any day at that point! They also had some pretty great posing ideas for the portraits. And while I was photographing Chris and Theresa, the boys ran around and played with my little boy, all of them pretend sword-fighting and showing off their ninja moves and whatnot.
Anyway, I was so happy with the way these photos turned out, the lighting was great, and Theresa literally glowed--so she looked amazing! The boys look adorable and Chris looks like a cool dad. And we had lots of laughs during the session, because we always do!
Thanks so much to this family for your continued support, and I can't wait to see that sweet little baby girl and capture some sweet memories with her.
