As a maternity photographer, there are two goals for every session. One, to make expectant moms feel amazing, and two, make sure that their session is designed to their individual tastes. Mom had very specific ideas in mind for her photos which also included her totally adorable little girl. She brought their own matching black bodysuits, and borrowed her favorite dresses from my client closet. We focused on images of her and big sister as well as capturing them together as a family with dad.
The color palette in their home is fairly neutral, with the exception being their upstairs. Mom called it a “pink explosion.” We captured her and her daughter in a light pink setup that will go in big sister’s room . The rest of the session was much more neutral in focus, something we will carry into their newborn session too.
This mom is also a children’s book author, and you can read a little more about her fun stories at the end of this post!
How adorable is this shot of mom and her little one? I am obsessed! It is just perfection, I can’t even believe it!
Now let me tell you about Stellas adventure books! They reinforce and teach a little bit of Portuguese for bi-lingual kids! The books are simple to read and feature a mix of English with key words in Portuguese. Sort of like most second generation Portuguese-Americans with their own families, probably communicate like at home. The illustrations are whimsical, and the stories will probably remind you of your own childhood, if you spent the summers traveling overseas with your family. You can check out her books for purchase on Amazon below:
