I feel like I've only blinked since my last shoot with Megan! Boy, oh boy, this little mama is making motherhood look so easy. We wanted to be able to do a variety of side by sides for each trimester, and the difference between 12 and 26 weeks is incredible.
We started in the sunroom, and in 5 minutes had gotten so many great shots that we could go ahead to our usual spot in Devou Park. The iconic green door. Every time I pass the museum where this door resides, all I can see is Megan standing in front of it. We then walked to the flower patch, which still provided a gorgeous setting, even in Kentucky in January. I snapped a few additional shots at a new spot, and quickly realized the sun (which hasn't shown itself for weeks at this point) finally came out from behind the clouds and we quickly ran to capture our sunset silhouette photo.
Talk about killing it. Once again, the pleasure is all mine. I'm counting down the days until we celebrate the baby shower!
FINALLY! Finally. THE TIME HAS COME! I no longer have to keep this news secret anymore! Two of the most special people in the world have decided to expand their family, and I got the call to create their announcement photos.
In true Megan fashion, she came prepared with an adorable banner and a fresh ultra sound photo to really drive the point home. The Karles wanted to use these for their holiday cards as well, so they of course needed to include their first baby Tank in all the excitement!
They all did so good, and the weather held out perfectly. Not too cold, no wind, no bright sunshine. Perfect. But not as perfect as Megan's 12 week photos THAT I CAN FINALLY SHARE!!! Insert Ric Flair "WOOOOOOO" here!!!!
I am so excited to be able to be on this journey with these two! Baby Karle arriving April 2017!
I mentioned somewhere on social media that October was going to be busy. It was no lie. October has come and gone in the blink of an eye. I really can't even believe it's already the 28th! Halloween is upon us! Thanksgiving is in 4 weeks, and Christmas in 9. And then it's time for a brand new year. 2016 has blitzed by, and in my last family session we were reminded of that as strangers commented on our youngest model of the day, little Beau.
Brandon and Heather contacted me to do a variety of photos in one shoot, and what perfect weather and cooperation did we get to accomplish all our goals. We headed to Ault Park in Mt. Lookout and I have NEVER in my life seen so many photographers with clients in one location. Once I got these photos uploaded, I was reminded of how much I love this park in the fall.
It didn't hurt that every single time I said anything, Beau looked right at me and smiled. For an hour and 15 minutes, he clapped and giggled and patiently did everything with a gleam.
After a marathon of different spots within one walkable block, we gave Beau a break from the camera to walk around and meet some people, and Heather and I took a moment to take a few maternity photos.
We headed towards the overlook part of the park to get Beau and the fam changed into their holiday wear. We were blessed with a warm day, which is generally a really good thing, but wearing a sweater in 70 degree heat is no easy or pleasant task. Still, our subjects championed through without reluctance. Tis the season.
We called it a night before we pushed the little man any further past a tiny touch cranky. It's no fun to have a crying kid in the backseat because they got pushed too far. What a beautiful family. I can't wait to meet their newest smiling addition, arriving soon! Thanks again Brandon, Heather, and Beau- call me anytime. You're a pleasure! Cheers!
