"Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments,
embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour." - John Boswell
My husband recently received a call from an old friend, Michael, who had heard that I was a maternity & newborn photographer. Michael was in search of a photographer as he and his wife are expecting their first little one very soon. Luckily, I was able to get them in right away for a maternity session. It was so nice to meet one of my husband's friends who knew him before I did, and to get to know his wife, Natasha.
Natasha is a natural in front of the camera. Her sweet nature, and all around beauty is so easily captured. We were able to fit in several wardrobe changes, and Natasha was stunning in every one of the maternity gowns she chose. Michael is absolutely smitten with his beautiful wife. Like many soon-to-be fathers, Michael was a little shy in front of the camera but there was no avoiding capturing his love for his wife and their baby. One of the many joys of this job is witnessing and capturing the tenderness of a man with the mother of his baby.
We also decided to take advantage of the freshly fallen snow despite it being very COLD!! We did not last long out in the elements, but we were able to capture some gorgeous winter wonderland images. The snow, ice and Natasha just sparkled in the perfect light! I am so glad we braved it, even if just for a few minutes!
Michael and Natasha, I know this pregnancy has been filled with golden moments as you await the arrival of your baby and embark on the greatest journey of all. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your journey!
