Last month my long time friend Sally contacted me and asked if I’d be interested in doing a newborn photo shoot for her soon to be born grandson. I jumped at the chance – I mean, a baby? And photography experience? Oh, YES. And then I asked Sally if maybe her daughter and son-in-law would like to do a maternity shoot first. I thought it would be a great chance for all of us to get to know each other and get comfortable with each other before the baby photos. I was thrilled when they agreed and so, on a cloudy Friday a few weeks ago we met up at the Natural Resources Trust in Easton.
I took 175 photos in about 45 minutes and it was so much fun! Of course, it helps that Chad and Laura are the cutest couple ever.
Right? They were so easy to work with and, even though I was very nervous initially, I soon felt comfortable and they did, too.
We wandered around a bit, taking a few photos sitting on this rock, posing here and there.
Kissing in front of this wall. And just generally laughing and having fun. You know, while I stuck a camera in their faces and said – “wait! stand there! now, Laura, look down. Chad, put your hand on Laura’s belly.”
You get the idea.
They brought this sweet little pair of baby sneakers along so we used those in a couple of photos, too.
I mean. How cute is that? I can’t even stand it.
And this. Laura, could you be any more serene and beautiful? Like, could you look a little bloated, please, instead of this amazing?
Thank you, Laura and Chad and Sally for this wonderful opportunity. I can’t wait to do it again with the baby on the outside.
