I love getting to photograph a first pregnancy. Lee glows with a strength and peace in all these photos. There’s a magic that just kind of hangs around a woman when she’s expecting, especially when it’s her first baby. It gave me the chance to remember my first and all the excited, nervous feelings, being in awe of what my body was doing and who it was creating. You just kind of walk around in this state of ‘I-can’t-belive-this-is-real’, at least until you hit the third trimester and just want to push that baby out so you can touch your toes again. ;)
We had to reschedule this photo shoot because of the usual Florida afternoon thunderstorms. This time we had beautiful sunny skies AND it happened to also be their 2 year wedding anniversary! Everything aligned for the most special, fun maternity photographs. Lee and Barry are such genuinely kind people, and their baby will be just as sweet and completely photogenic.
