A few years ago, I did a mini portrait session for Emily and Scott, and I remember being surprised by how candid and up front they were about their struggles to have a child. So recently, when Emily got in touch with me, I just felt especially humbled about being asked to do her maternity photos, just because I knew how much they meant.
At first, I was a little nervous to shoot these images at high noon, because Emily needed to get her makeup done in the morning and she had her baby shower in the afternoon, but I just decided that I was going to challenge myself and embrace the harsh light. In the end, I fell in love with the result, and how it almost feels editorial because of that midday lighting. I especially LOVE all the black and white images, and how on the close up shots you can see all of Emily’s freckles! Too cute!
Congratulations to Emily + Scott, I am so excited that Charlotte will be joining us soon!
