Throughout my time in newborn photography, maternity photography, and family photography, I’ve worked with happy families with just about any combination of personalities out there. Some families are full of energy, chatter, and laughter, while others are quieter and more reserved. This sweet couple was one of the latter. The came to me because they loved my bold use of color which matched their desire to wear their traditional Indian clothes in their maternity photos.
It was easy to see that they were so excited to meet their baby and to grow their family, but they were serene and relaxed throughout the entire session. They have such a calming presence together, and I know their beautiful baby will feel the same sense of ease with them that I did.
I love the mixture of portraits that we were able to capture for this kind couple. Mom and Dad hold their Indian traditions very dear to their hearts, so we made sure to get some photos in traditional Indian dress. The vibrant colors truly accent Mom’s glow, and these portraits are a perfect way to foretell the rich culture that these parents will pass along to their baby.
Mom and Dad also wanted some photos in the classic flowy maternity dress that so many moms love (and who could blame them?). Mom looked like an absolute dream in this stunning red dress, whether it’s flowing in the wind or draping around her. In the midst of these photos, I captured one of my favorite details of the entire session – an absolutely adorable grin that Mom and Dad exchange in one of these portraits. They just couldn’t contain their excitement about their little baby, and I’m so glad to be able to preserve that precious moment!
While we weren’t able to reconnect with this family for their baby’s newborn photos due to some last-minute obligations, I was thrilled to capture the special time while they prepared for their child, and I hope to work with them again for future milestones.
