M and I had exchanged messages back & forth through Facebook for a couple of months before she hired me to meet up with her & her sweet family for her maternity photos in New Braunfels on a lovely warm Sunday evening. I could tell how much these pictures were going to mean to her and when we finally met up the time, love & effort that she had put into gathering ideas & props and planning poses was so evident and I just love that. It makes the images SO much personal and much more YOU when clients take time to do that. I certainly don’t mind if if they show up and let me take over with my ideas and thoughts but there is also something to be said for taking time to search for inspiration & ideas prior to your session. They were a bit nervous when we got started but quickly settled into it and were posing like models in no time at all as you can see and to make the images even more special…….Baby L was born less than 48 hours after these were taken.
