We love when clients want to use items from their life that mean something to them in their shoots. This mom was great, we got to incorporate her traditional Ethnic dress, and her husband is in the service so she proudly wore his uniform loosely for some of the shots as well. This is such an exciting and nerve racking time when expecting your first child. Its important to pause and take some time out for you and capture these moments, the miracle of life, and the amazing strength a woman beholds. It may feel like the most exciting time is when the baby is born, but it's important to have these memories to show your child as they grow and how much you loved them before you ever held them in your arms. We were also lucky enough to shoot her newborn session as well! Dad was on leave so we got the whole family involved, so keep an eye out for that blog post as well.
