Hailey and Chris are one of the most adorable couples I’ve worked with. It had been raining pretty heavily the week leading up to their maternity session, but I was hopeful the day of her photos would be sunny and beautiful. No such luck! We woke up to another rainy day in Houston, so I texted Hailey about rescheduling because no one wants to take photos after so much rain.
Except the wet weather didn’t deter Hailey and Chris! She wanted to go ahead as long as it wasn’t raining during the shoot. So I packed up my gear, still expecting the rain to ruin our day. Luckily for us, Hailey’s determination to get these photos done paid off, and the rain let up just as we met.
What I love most about couples maternity sessions is capturing two people who are crazy in love AND excited about having a baby. You may not immediately think about a maternity session being romantic – after all, most people assume it’s exclusively about the baby bump – but what better time to focus on cuddles and kisses between a mom and dad-to-be?
I love the vintage casual look of this couple, and Hailey thrilled when I pulled out a few flower crowns to complete her look! How amazing is that dress?! And even though she was around 26 weeks pregnant, she still rocked some pretty tall heels. Way to go, mama!
Believe it or not, I gave them very little posing guidance and they were absolute naturals in front of the camera. It was definitely one of those sessions where I was sad when we wrapped up, because I had so much fun with them… and yet I couldn’t wait to get home and edit their photos.
