Maternity Session

I got to spend some time with Jenn, Carter, and little Aidan this past Saturday. Baby Oliver, the newest member of the family is due next month.

Jenn is such a beautiful mom.

I used available light throughout the shoot. Some gorgeous natural light was pouring in through the windows.

Aidan has a fabulous personality.

He let me get close and was incredibly gracious about it.

One of my favorites. (I love my 85mm 1.2 lens) This kiddo is adorable and will be a great big brother. I predict that Baby Oliver will be entertained constantly.

It was so nice to be around this family, they were so relaxed and comfortable together.

A perfect head rest.

    Thank you, David for the comment! I will forward this to baby Oliver (who just joined us a few days ago) and his family. What a great website. I especially love the artwork.
