September 7, 2015 was a great day! Maybe not for my sister’s comfort, but for the new love we all experienced when welcoming my newest nephew, Decker, into the world! Here are a few shots from our several photo sessions over the past nine months…
Back in November, the Pociecha’s welcomed sweet little Coragan to their family. It’s really fun, and such an honor to be able to document the changing stages in a family’s life. It really makes me giddy!
Every time I’m pregnant, I think about taking portraits. This time around, I got serious. This will likely be our last- no more chances to say ‘next time’! I’m used to taking the photos- I thought this might be tricky… so I called my sister for help.
I positioned and set the lights. My sister directed me on body placement and angled the camera. A very special ‘Thanks!’ to her for making this a reality rather than a missed opportunity!
When taking maternity portraits, I usually tell moms the ideal time frame is between 30-35 weeks. That’s when the belly is big enough to be dramatic, but usually before too much swelling or discomfort is happening. In my case, we took these when I was 29.5 weeks. Clearly my belly was not hiding!
Our FIFTH baby is on his way, and we are just as excited as the first time. I can’t wait to meet him and enjoy holding him on the OUTSIDE!
