There’s something really special about being a Quad Cities maternity photographer. These sessions are so neat, especially when it’s with first time parents. The excitement and glow between the couple is so sweet and tender, and I just love the emotion behind these sessions. I love when we do these as you can feel the love and excitement within the couple, and that emotion creates the most stunning portraits!
This couple has selected my Grow With Me Package to capture their little one’s major milestones over the course of a year! They had their maternity session back in August, and they will be celebrating their brand new baby with a newborn session coming up very soon! Once the baby is 6 months old and then again at one year, we’ll do more sessions to capture their incredible milestones. At the end of the one year, they will receive the most stunning album that will showcase the baby’s first year of life. It’s super exciting and so, so, so special!
Expecting moms always ask me what to wear for their session. I love doing two different outfits. One being a long maxi dress. These are super comfy, and they really create that soft side that represents the glowing side of pregnancy. The other outfit choice is something more casual. Maybe capris or jeans with a snug, solid color shirt to accentuate that adorable baby bump! Both of these outfits photograph really well, and they also provide us the capability of being able to do a wide variety of poses. This helps to create a diversified gallery of images for you to showoff this really exciting time to remember.
I really loved working with this couple for many reasons, and I can already tell just how great they will be at parenthood. They were super easy to pose, and they did such a great job in selecting their outfits. They fit the locations perfectly! I’m really excited about the way these turned out.
With all that being said, please take a look below at some of my favorite images from their session. And remember, if you or someone you know is expecting, feel free to message me to chat further about how you will love the Grow With Me Package to capture your little one’s first year!
