This session. Sigh. Where do I begin?
When I first spoke with Lauren, she explained that she was interested in booking a maternity and newborn session together. We spoke of things like the Free People dress she had for the session, and the flower crown she planned on wearing to complete the bohemian look she had in mind. I knew the PERFECT location for this session. EG Simmons. The tall grasses, the yummy light, the beach, the mangroves... did I mention the yummy light??? It was going to be perfect. We were even lucky enough to meet each other at a party before the session, so when it came time for the session, things were already a little more comfortable.
So, it was time for our session. Lauren shows up looking INCREDIBLE. I mean, the dress was MADE for her and her sweet baby belly. Her husband, Jacob and their sweet 2 year old son, Finn looked awesome!! And the weather.... If I had the ability to control the weather, I couldn't have made it any better. Perfect temperature, low humidity, light breeze, no bugs. Just perfect.
The "B" family was so natural in front of the camera. Watching their interactions with each other... watching them love on each other... I found myself smiling the whole time I was shooting. Lauren and Jacob were amazing and laid back -- we were able to get sweet Finn to be a part of the whole session without really forcing him. We were just hanging out with his matchbox cars, playing on the beach!
The result was magic. Pure magic.
I am so excited for them to become a family of four and meet their newest little love!!!
