As some of you may know, I announced my transition to specializing in maternity and wedding photography this year. Both have played such big roles in my own life, that they have me beyond excited when I see them pop up on my calendar. I love listening to every mama’s story on their pregnancy so far, what they hope to name their little one and listening to how they have started to decorate the nursery. It is such an exciting time for mama to be’s, dreaming of the days to come ahead. And since I’ve been a mama for the past 21 months & I know all the amazing moments that have unfolded in those almost two years, I know these mama’s are in for a real treat.
Shrey reached out to me to photograph him and his lovely wife, Arni for some maternity portraits. We landed upon Edgewater Beach for their location and it never dawned on me that it is officially summer around here and the beach would be PACKED. I mean parking in the grass, almost a mile away from the beach. And it was only a Wednesday! (My dad later informed me they have concerts there on Wednesday’s which could have explained the abundance of folks!) But the weather was perfect! The breeze was dreamy. And you could smell the lake water – and it didn’t stink of fish! Hooray! 😉
Arni’s mother was in town visiting from India! She is staying with them for a few months to help give extra baby snuggles and help them on their move to Iowa! I am so glad that they are letting me capture this beautiful season before they leave Ohio! Arni’s due date was the 4th of July, but just 4 days after our session, her sweet little bundle arrived early! (I’d like to think all the walking from their session helped bring the sweet boy early!) 😉 So I suppose this session is a little “throwback” if you will! 🙂
