Maternity Session Photo Fun!

When Heather asked me to do a maternity session for her I was more than surprised. I had never done anything of the like before. Sure I own a nice camera, I like to take pictures, but I never thought anyone would ask me to take pictures for them. 



I nervously said yes, because she's one of my besties and I couldn't turn her down. But I also didn't want to disappoint her so I proceeded to give a lot of warnings: I've never done this. I don't know what I'm doing. I'll be slow. Don't hate me if I fail miserably. 



Thankfully there are tons of websites out there that provided inspiration for both of us! Maybe a little too much inspiration at times. We had so many ideas that I ended up taking over 500 pictures. Wow. Yes, this is a very small sampling of the set ups we did.




This will be Heather's second child. Her first son Carter just turned 2 and is beyond adorable! Heather's only 20 weeks along so we are all still anxiously waiting to find out if Carter is going to have a little brother or a little sister. We took two different gender reveal shots to prepare for either option though!



I learned a lot from this first experience. It's definitely no easy task and I have a lot to improve on if I were ever to do this for anyone else, but I think we both had a lot of fun. I also think that we got some great shots. How could I not? Heather sure knows how to work a camera!



Thanks Heather for letting me be a part of this very special pregnancy. I'm looking forward to going back a little closer to delivery time to do some more photos with Carter and her husband Daniel. That is, if she asks me back after doing these ;)
