Whenever I can, I like to approach each of my sessions with a stylistic vision. Not only does it help give me focus and inspiration for what I shoot, but I find it really helps to tell a story and bring the images to life. So when this gorgeous Momma first contacted me I had been dreaming of this ethereal seaside maternity session for months. Long, flowy skirt, golden light and of course a beautiful baby bump. But these types of things take time and serious planning. So when Amanda first reached out to me at almost 38 weeks along, the clock was ticking. A few shopping trips, an old wedding gown, a pair of scissors and a very trusting client later, this was the result. More breathtaking than anything I could have ever imagined.
And boy did we do this just in the nick of time! Not three days later, handsome little Rowan made his debut (scroll down to meet him!).
Amanda, you are simply a natural in front of the camera and so unbelievably beautiful. May your sweet baby boy have his Father's strength and athleticism and your grace.
Amanda and Matt have graciously allowed me to share one of Rowan's first pictures. Have you ever seen a more precious newborn?!?
