Apryl's Lifestyle Maternity Session- Oreos, Tacos, and Baby Clothes.
April 19, 2018
My girl Apryl. I couldn't wait for her birth session, so when she started saying she was thinking about a maternity session I said "let's do it"! But I have to admit, I am shying away from the "typical" maternity session. I want to come to your home. I want to get to know you before I photograph your baby's birth. I want it to be real. So I asked her what are her favorite foods right now and she said "TACOS" and I mean, who doesn't? I also was obsessed with tacos while pregnant and I was ALL IN! We photographed her making some tacos up, eating oreos and organic donuts, struggling to change her pants (that I just photographed and it's sooooo relatable so I am keeping it in), and folding her baby boys clothes up. We talked about how little everything was and who he would look like. We talked about where her birth pool would go and about our love for our favorite Midwives (Ingrid & Miranda were my midwifes too!). Then we took some photos of her adorable baby bump. This session was so relaxed and fun. Not only did we get some great shots of her pregnant self, but we also formed a bond, and I was able to see her space before her home birth. I loved this session so much that I am now offering these laid back in home maternity sessions with all birth sessions moving forward!
