What an amazing time we had shooting Kate’s maternity session. A lot of planning had gone into this session to make it just right. Kate brought her sister-in-law Anita with her to do her make-up and help look after 3-year-old Zachary (while mummy was busy). Anita did an amazing job with Kate’s natural style makeup, it was exactly what I was after for the shoot. Thank you to Anita for all your input, I hope one day in the future we can work together again with more clients.
So with Kate’s makeup all done, we were all set to get started with some photos with her 3-year-old son Zachary! Working with this age group means there is a pretty short window of time to capture images. Zachary was terrific and did a great job giving the babies many kisses. These images will be a beautiful memory for Kate and Shaun to look back on, and for his future siblings to see just how grown up (or how little) their big brother was when they are born.
We had the opportunity to have the session both inside the studio and outdoors which I absolutely love! Mother nature put on an amazingly warm winter day for us with a little bit of breeze which was exactly what we needed to get that dress and hair flowing.
After our session Kate mentioned in a message to me that she felt so beautiful during her session, that means the world to me and something that I plan to do more of…. making people feel terrific in a photograph!
It was fantastic for Kate to have the opportunity to get a little pampered and styled before the twins arrive and I’m thrilled she will have these photographs to look back on and be proud of herself and her pregnancy for carrying both babies so beautifully.
So not long to go now until the babies arrive, actually it could be any day now and I can’t wait until we get the babies in the studio for their session.
Best wishes to Kate and Shaun for when these two arrive!
