I am very excited to share this session on the blog! How much fun is a 'Bun in the Oven' themed maternity & family session?! Making apple pies & playing in the apple orchard...
It was extra special for me as it was not only for one of my closest friends that I love dearly, but she also happens to be a photographer that I hugely admire (I met her by booking her for a family session because I love her work so much. Seriously, check out her work: www.kerimessinaphotography.com). So of course, when Keri came to me with this fun idea she had, I was SO excited. Then SO nervous ;). Then excited again (okay & still nervous, but really super excited too). It really was an honor to have her ask me to photograph her family & I feel really lucky to have been given the opportunity. Plus, she has such an amazing family (their newest soon to arrive family member, Jeremiah, seriously could not be in better hands).
I had a blast working with her collecting props, picking out outfits & pulling everything together. Shopping through antique & thrift stores together & rummaging through our current prop stashes. MANY photos sent back & forth for outfits & props. There were also many efforts from our lovely friends - loaning bits & pieces - from the table, to potholders & cute vintage kitchen knickknacks. Also a huge thank you to a favorite client of mine, K.K., for allowing us the use of her families beautiful property for the session. We are so grateful!!! When Keri & I arrived to set up everything, we had to take a minute to laugh at the absurdity of the amount of props we brought (we only used a 1/4 of them).
Anyhow, I hope you enjoy these photos even a fraction as much as I enjoyed being able to take them!
