I cannot imagine being any luckier than this, right here and right now. I have the most thoughtful and sweet clients, whether for maternity or family portraits, or a complete wedding. Rayan and Sheila are just sweet and amazing people! They are expecting a little girl and judging by how Sheila’s tummy looks to me at seven months, their daughter is going to be the most precious tiny thing. How exciting, life changing and dear. I feel that Rayan and Sheila’s photos show their love in such a beautiful light. Not only will they cherish these memories forever, but so will their daughter. That is one of the reasons I love maternity photography so much because I like to think about what the children will think about the photos one day. How amazed they’ll be to see such wonderful images of their parents! And to think they will look back on the photos time and time again. Then they’ll show the images to their own children one day. It’s a lifetime of love.
During Rayan and Sheila’s maternity session, some interesting things happened. First we found a yellow and pink rose that someone placed in the ground. It was a sweet surprise! Later the best part unfolded. There was a blue and black butterfly that kept fluttering around us. It would sometimes fly away from us but kept coming right back. That was a first during any of my photo sessions of the last few years! I tried to get a good picture of the butterfly with Sheila but he was a fast mover and I kept changing my settings to focus on her thinking the butterfly was gone. But I will show one of the pictures where the butterfly swooped in. How sweet that was. A special sign?
I’ll be photographing the details of this couple’s baby shower as well in just a couple of weeks. If their friends and family are as wonderful as this couple, it will be a really beautiful celebration I am sure!
