In the process of planning and plotting a maternity session, there can be much communication, a lot of back and forth, and editing of plans.
Also, sometimes I get a little flustered, and have a lot of ideas floating around in my head. Many times, between the booking date, and the shooting date I have received new props, and wardrobe, thus causing me to shift my vision, and change my shooting plan.
This session prep was a classic example of my work flow, the changes and updates, and the flustered moments. However the day of her session I had a solid plan and was excited to set it in motion.
Come the day of the session, I find even though I have emailed, or spoke on the phone with my mommas, its still meeting a stranger. A stranger, who, more than likely I am about to see in some state of undress as we get them into wardrobe. Always an awkward moment for me, and usually her. Surprisingly this momma and I got on just fantastically. Despite all the changes and a few surprises I sprung on her last minute her session was great.
We had a fantastic time, playing with the wardrobe, working with her little guy's comfort level, and creating an amazing gallery for her. This session was outstanding, and a great example of my new maternity vision. I love the simplicity of the set, and the stunning details of her gown and clothing pieces. This momma is such a beauty, and she really rocked her session. I wish I could have worked with her all day!
Enjoy a few outtakes from her session, and keep your eyes open for pictures of her and her little lady!
