maternity/family portraits of a dear friend just a day before heading out on a long vacation. when they return my friend will be well along in her pregnancy and i wanted to surprise her with a nice book of images for her to remember when they were a family of three. (the baby will be here in early august). i think it is so important for families to invest in portraits of togetherness before a new baby arrives. (the older child then has solid memories of how special their family bond was before the eminent jealousy arrives when the little one does!) i am planning to create a special book for their daughter as well where mom and dad can write personal notes to her along the images. something she can cherish forever!
as we rounded the corner of their neighborhood park–the light was so magical. my heart pounded as i pressed the shutter. the light blended so well with their clothes and my friend’s surreal green eyes. these are moments when i feel so alive as an artist and a photographer. i truly do love my craft!
safe travels my friends. looking forward to the up coming baby shower this summer!
