I don't do a lot of maternity sessions but I absolutely A-D-O-R-E them! Some don't like the idea of being placed in front of a camera while 8 months pregnant but I think its such a beautiful time in your life to document & I am always hugely honoured to take maternity portraits for my clients.
Samantha contacted me earlier on in her pregnancy to book in maternity & newborn photos. And I totally recommend organising both well in advance, its usually something that you don't want to have to think about organising when you have a brand new baby to love & nurture. Plus I offer discounts when both sessions are booked together ;)
Samantha brought along a beautiful dress that was just perfect for photos by the river. We didn't have to go far for these photos, in fact just down the gravel road from Samantha's house :)
Isn't she just beautiful!!!
Samantha's husband Ashley & daughter, Ryleigh came along for some family portraits too & it turns out Ryleigh loved posing for me :) Check out the cuteness!!!
And I think Ryleigh is a bit of a daddy's girl!
And a couple of weeks ago I had cuddles with the new addition to the Shepherd family, baby Grayson. Stay tuned for Grayson's blog in the next few weeks! xx
