It’s BUMP Day and what better way to celebrate than with an adorable little baby bump and family! I met this beautiful glowing mama and her adorable little girl just about 2 years ago during my Mommy and Me Mini Sessions in May of 2015! Little miss Hailey is getting so big and she is so excited to meet her little brother!
When Kristal contacted me about a family maternity session, I was so excited! I love kids, I love baby bumps and I love love! Yes! I wanted to capture their moments for them! She explained she wanted a nautical kind of session at a beach near by. I suggested Duxbury Beach since it’s close by and so beautiful. There are many different backgrounds to choose from there which I love, and the fall light during our session was absolutely perfect! You can not tell in these photos, but it was a chilly night! They braved the chill and we got some amazing photos for them to remember this exciting time just before baby #2 arrives in December.
I asked Kristal what was something that John, her husband, has done for her during the pregnancy that is sweet and meaningful to her. She told me that he will take Hailie into another room when she falls asleep on the couch. I loved this answer! Seriously, how sweet is that?! Carrying a baby is hard work! falling asleep on the couch sounds so amazing and I am sure other moms to be out there would agree with this one! Let her sleep!
The best time to get maternity photos taken is between 28-33 weeks of your pregnancy. At this session, Kristal is exactly 31 weeks. She is absolutely glowing and so comfortable in her own skin. The whole family listened to my suggestions for posing, backgrounds and where to look and when. The candid moments are by far my favorites. I work hard trying to capture as many candid moments as I can in all of my sessions. Here we had an hour together where I just snapped away and these guys got to be themselves! We all had so much fun and I am so happy with how these images turned out for them!
Kristal, John and Hailie, THANK YOU for choosing me to be your family photographer! I Loved seeing you guys again and I loved hanging out. I hope you love your photos and I can not wait to meet your little man once he arrives! xoxo
