I couldn't be more thrilled when I'm asked to do photos for friends, and I am even MORE thrilled when those friends are about to become first time parents! The excitement and anticipation is just magical! Marlaina and Tom are friends from high school who are about the have their little baby girl (aka the blueberry! Marlaina's sweet nickname for her!), and Marlaina couldn't have been any more glowing and fabulous at almost 9 months pregnant! She was such a great sport - even climbing up on benches so I could get some different background shots!
We hit up one of my favorite spots (I never get tired of finding new ways to shoot here!) for their maternity photos. Before we went to the park though, we met Tom at the train station and got some fun shots there as well! :) I am always up for something new and different! I always recommend to my clients that we shoot either early in the morning or during that golden hour before sunset to get the best light...and boy does the light in some of these pictures make the reasons for that obvious! There is no other time of day I could have achieved a silhouette with a sky like that! :) You'll see... It's one of my new favorite photos.
Enjoy meeting this awesome mom and dad to be! :)
Super in love with this! So sweet! :)
Such a beautiful couple!
There's the blueberry!!! :)
I love that you can even see the bugs flying around...
Marlaina's mom got her this adorable book to go with Marlaina's nickname for the baby, and she used it as a sign-in book at her baby shower! It will be such a cute memento for the baby!
And if you've followed my blog, you know I can't get enough of the belly hand heart photo! haha :) Just love it!
I mean seriously - she's just stunning!
Love this one! :)
And my favorites! Look at that sky?!?!
So excited for these two! I can't wait to meet the blueberry! :)
