I don't even know where to begin with this sweet couple. It was actually Beau's mom who scheduled everything. Everything from the maternity to the newborn session. I didn't think I could have met a sweeter person, but then I met Maci and Beau. Sugar must run in their veins. I have never felt more love from one family.
Maci arrived in a gorgeous blue dress. Of course blue for the beautiful little boy she was carrying. Oh! And I can verify that this baby is beautiful because I got to snuggle on him a few weeks after this session. I love to talk about my mamas, but Maci was glowing during her session. I know it was only a hundred million degrees when we shot this session, but Maci walked around Indian Springs like a champ. She hiked steps, sat on rocks and was not only graceful but looked gorgeous. Beau held her dress, her hand and made sure she was taking in plenty of water....because seriously it was a hundred billion degrees outside the day of this session.
And, as always, a fitted dress is a must for a maternity session. I am a big fan of showing off the gorgeous pregnancy curves. If you are considering a maternity session, plan ahead! I like to shoot maternity sessions starting at 28 weeks to avoid the swelling and making it an easier decision for moms to wear a fitted gown.
I love Indian Springs. The rich colors of the rocks, how the sun sets over the scenery and the way the water photographs are just a few reasons I love shooting sessions here. The river rocks is one of the main spots for pictures. The rocks can get pretty slippery and heavy rainfall can be a little tricky, but with a little help and bare feet I can typically manage to get some pretty wonderful images.
Little did we know that baby Jax was already working on making his debut a little early. Just a few weeks after this session Jax arrived-about a month ahead of schedule. I will blogging about his sweet self as well because ya'll just have to meet him!
