This past weekend was night and day, Saturday was a snow and sleet storm and Sunday was sunny and near 60. Thank goodness for that sun, or Melissa and John’s maternity session for baby Bell would have been a very cold one! Oh the joys of living in New England!
With only a few weeks left until the arrival of their little one, the baby shower is over, the nursery is as ready as it can be, and Melissa and John are eagerly awaiting to find out if they will have a little boy or little girl in their arms soon. In a world of technology, where there are so few surprises left, this is so exciting!
Sloshing through the melting snow, it was a fun session involving a balancing act of staying upright (as the photographer, I can tell you I failed miserably at this, however as long as Melissa stayed on her feet – that is all that mattered!), keeping the attention of the family dog Lexi – (who was extremely well behaved!) and making sure the sun stayed our friend and not our enemy.
Beyonce is quoted as saying, “it is the most powerful creation to have life growing inside of you. There is no bigger gift.” Photographing a maternity session is one of my favorites things to do for that reason – I am able to show the glow of happiness at the beautiful gift that is about to happen.
Excited to see your little one soon, Melissa and John! ❤
