Pleasant Hill Maternity Photographer: J&J's Reveal

This session was SO exciting (and challenging). This mommy and daddy-to-be had their Dr. put their baby's gender in a sealed envelope and I got to reveal to them what they were having! I love that they have this moment captured in photos. This proved to be more of a challenge than I could ever anticipate though. It was VERY windy which does not mix well with trying to shove a bunch of balloons into a flimsy and light cardboard box that kept trying to blow away (since I didn't know what they were having until I got there, I had both pink and blue balloons ready in the car so had to fill the box on site). I finally figured out to put my camera bag in the box to weigh it down, however that left less room for the balloons so when I finally got them all in, they were packed in pretty tight and ended up only coming out one or two at a time. That was probably a good thing though because otherwise the wind may have carried them off before I even got a chance to grab a shot of them! I can't wait to meet this little guy! Congratulations "J&J"!

Blue Springs, Mo Maternity Photographer: Sam

For whatever reason I haven't done many maternity sessions. I seem to always get them after they have entered the world, which is fun too, but I have been really wanting to try out some more beautiful belly shots.  Samantha was the perfect model and definitely worth the wait. Baby Silas is one lucky little guy and has some pretty great parents waiting to meet him. I can't wait either!
