Let me introduce you to this gorgeous Bettendorf family. This beautiful family came all the way from Brazil to have me photograph their maternity portraits! Ok…maybe it wasn’t specifically for me, but it sure sounds amazing, right!?!?!
Here’s the real story…This couple is originally from Brazil, and they moved here to the Quad Cities for career opportunities. I was really excited when they reached out to me stating they were relatively new to the area and they were looking for a photographer for a one year plan as they were expecting their second little one. They opted for my Grow With Me Plan which consists of a maternity, newborn, 6 months and one year session. They also wanted to add on a 3 month and 9 month session which is so great! We are going to capture this little one at every milestone over the course of a year, and I couldn’t be more honored and humbled that they selected Amanda Oakes Photography to do this for them!
And let’s just take a second to chat about their little girl. Isn’t she adorable! I LOVE how when she’s in front of the camera she just smiles and shines! She’s so cute, and she’s going to make the best big sister!
This mom and I chatted about different outfit selections and what photographs the best for maternity pictures. She did an amazing job putting everything together for her family! I love the soft colors she went with. It creates the most beautiful and natural portraits, and I’m very happy with the way these turned out.
Please take a moment to check out some of my favorites from this session. If you’d like to have more information on the Grow With Me Package, simply click here.
