I am very much a Type-A planner kind of person. If my phone were to crash and I couldn’t access my Gmail calendar, I would be absolutely lost. When I meet other people who like to plan life in advance, I feel an instant connection!
This is part of the reason why Maddie’s maternity session holds a special place in my heart. We had her date on the calendar before she was even in her second trimester – that’s how on the ball she is! Of course our perfectly laid out plans didn’t go quite as smoothly as we’d hoped when her boyfriend couldn’t make it at the last minute. However, this meant Maddie’s mama Allison was able to join her daughter, and it made for the sweetest mama-daughter maternity session.
Accessories can make all the difference in your photos and 2016 was definitely the year of the flower crown! I think I only had two mamas last year who didn’t wear one for their photos!
Maddie took a different approach with her pearl headband, which I just loved with her beautiful gown. It’s little details like this crown that really add a layer of visual interest to your photos. The great thing about accessories is, we can always remove pieces to add versatility to your session!
Another detail from her session: the blue ribbon representing that sweet boy she’s carrying.
The park where we shot her session is usually fairly busy, but fortunately we caught it on an evening when not many people were there. I love how ethereal Maddi looks in her white gown, up against the deep green of the trees. She wears pregnancy so well!
