Anticipation! | Central Minnesota, St. Cloud Family, Maternity Photographer

September 20, 2011

Here’s the second set of photos from the amazing sister/maternity/family portrait session I blogged recently. I love how these photos turned out! One of my biggest regrets is that I never had maternity portraits done of myself when I was pregnant, so I’m always eager and excited when a client decides to do a maternity session with me. It’s such a special and magical period of anticipation before the baby arrives – especially when we get the opportunity to photograph the entire family along with momma!

When we shot this session, we had two big hurdles to overcome. 1. It was an insanely busy biking/hiking path, and we had to move around a few bikes/strollers/scooters as well as pedestrians. It wasn’t really a problem, except that I’m not used to having an audience! 2. The mosquitoes that night were ferocious. And it wasn’t even dark yet! But the best part about the evening was when a sweet older lady (in her scooter!) commented that momma-to-be swelled up exceptionally large from her mosquito bite!

I hope that Carrie and family love their portraits as much as I do. It really was an enjoyable evening, and I’m so grateful to them for trusting me to capture these precious moments in time for them.
