Not quite a year ago, these two tied the knot, and now they are expecting their first baby.  It was such an honor to get to photograph them again as they embark on this new journey.  We had absolutely stunning weather — warm and sunny, and gorgeous foliage.  We went on an adventure to some of their favorite spots to walk and bike — places they are looking forward to sharing with their son when he’s born.

I often get asked when the perfect time to book maternity portraits is — the truth is, there’s no one right answer.  In general, a good rule of thumb is sometime around the 32 week mark — most moms-to-be have a visible bump at that point, but are still fairly comfortable moving around (we walked a TON during this session, and there was a lot of up and down from the ground — if that isn’t feeling like you, we can plan something different, but it’s definitely helpful to schedule if possible before it’s too uncomfortable to shift positions).  That being said — if for some reason your pregnancy is higher risk and you feel like you might deliver early, we can always schedule earlier in your pregnancy and can accentuate a smaller bump through posing techniques.
