When Melissa wrote to tell me that she + Jason were expecting + that they wanted me to do their maternity photos, I was over the moon! I just love hanging out with this sweet little family! Last weekend, I met them at their resort in Fort Morgan, Alabama for this gorgeous photo session. Melissa knows exactly how to rock the camera and makes my job a breeze! We started out with a few photos of Melissa + her little bump – they have chosen to keep the baby’s gender a surprise until the birth, which I think is so much fun! All the anticipation – I can’t wait to find out myself! Enjoy this lovely session!
Then it was time for a quick outfit change + for Miss Tansley to join in on the fun! She’s gotten so big since last September, constantly chatting and still loving to eat the sand. She is such a little sweetheart and you can definitely tell how much she loves her momma!
I just love these next images of the whole family!
One of my favorite things about working with toddlers are the unexpected moments that arise throughout the shoot. I usually keep some bloopers for my clients, but these were too cute not to share.
First up, a “hug” for momma:
I was setting Melissa + Jason into the pose, when suddenly we had a photo bomb, complete with Mommy’s necklace!
“Where’s the baby?”
And my favorite… This is was happened when I posed Melissa on Jason’s lap – you can totally see Tansley’s thought process! Love it!!
