I have been photographing this family for several years now, and it was such a pleasure to get to see them again as they get ready welcome their third child next month.  We had gorgeous golden hour light — this time of year sunset is getting earlier, so we could meet at a pretty kid-friendly time and get to see the magic.

Maternity sessions can take many forms — sometimes it’s just mom-to-be, sometimes it’s both parents, and in this case, it was basically a family session with a little extra focus on the belly.  There’s no one right answer for a maternity session — each family wants something a little different.  With these folks, the kids were so excited about welcoming their baby sister soon, so it made perfect sense to plan it essentially as a family session.

Generally, you want to schedule a maternity session late in your pregnancy, but not so late that you’re in danger of going into labor 🙂  A good rule of thumb is to plan for maternity portraits between 32-36 weeks if you have a low risk pregnancy — if there is a reason you expect you may deliver early, we can always make earlier work as well — we will just need to be extra careful with posing to showcase a smaller baby bump!

Here are a few of my favorites from my time with this family — I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
