I know that I say it a lot, but I truly LOVE watching my families grow. Being a part of your special moments is such a gift and photographing the moments leading up to the birth a of new baby are no exception to that.
I started photographing this adorable family when their youngest, and soon to be middle, was born. When their Mommy let me know they were expecting again, I was so excited for them! Christy let me know that we needed to get a maternity session on the schedule and we started chatting about their wardrobe almost instantly. She mentioned that she LOVED the maternity gowns that have become so popular and then I said, "You are in luck! I actually have two at the studio for client use!" Then we chose a color palette that would work for the whole family. I just adore the pink, teal, grey and navy color scheme. It is a perfect color pop against all of the greenery.
There is really nothing sweeter than a baby bump, unless that is a baby bump being snuggled by two big brothers that are anxiously awaiting their new brother.
How gorgeous are they? I love how they are hugging their Mama and their new little brother. I would say that these two are going to be some really great big brothers.
Christy also decided to put a personal touch on their session and bring some custom Mox that were made by her friend, Krystina. If you look closely you might even get a clue as to what this new, little guy's name might be!
Aren't these just the cutest little shoes? I love them! Did you catch that clue yet? If you haven't you will have to wait until the end for the reveal!
Capturing real emotions, like these ones, during a session is what I am always striving for. I love when it happens so naturally too! All I had to do was ask them to look at each other and they just cracked up! I think my favorite is when they brought their heads together all on their own and had that special moment together.
I couldn't resist getting a sibling shot of these two. It just might be one of the last photos of just the two of them before baby Spencer decides to make his appearance. Then there will be three! Keep your eye on the blog for baby Spencer's newborn session! Just like his big brother Xavier, he will be one of my Watch Me Grow babies, so we will get to see him from birth to one year!
