As Promised: My First Maternity Session

26 Apr

This is Natalie. She’s momma to a little boy who will born sometime between now and the end of May.

The day after her baby shower she let me take these portraits of her. She let me even though I’d never done a portrait session before. She let me even though I rarely get it right in the camera. She let me, even though I was nervous.

She says she loves these pictures. I think I do, too.

You can view the video larger on vimeo. The song is Momma to You by Anne Heaton.
