Downtown Houston Skyline Maternity Session + Family Portraits
Oh, my goodness. I cannot begin to tell you how much I adore this session! As a photographer, it's always fun to try something new. This includes locations. While I normally take my clients to beautiful, sunlit golden fields or rural locations, one of my latest maternity clients inspired me to do an urban session in downtown Houston near Eleanor Tinsley Park.
I'm super excited to present these portraits to you! I adored meeting their precious son and fur baby! This session, however, also focused on Mom's beautiful belly and the family bonds they share. Locations play a huge part in this.
At the beginning, we started our session in this lovely little garden. The radiant sunlight cascaded downward through the trees and I *knew* we had to utilize this before the skyline.
After spending some time with Mom's perfect baby bump, we also spent time documenting the entire family. While this is a maternity portrait session, I always encourage the entire family to participate because they're part of your story. I also admit to being completely smitten with their little boy, B. Toddlers are amazing little loves! They're ever so purposeful. This is my absolute favorite age!
During the family portion of any session I document, we keep things simple and laid back. While I do offer direction and ensure the light looks nice, I also take a step back and let things develop naturally. The photo experience should be fun for everyone (especially the kiddos!). A little structure is good but organic images are the best. These melt my heart - this is where those "in between" moments really shine.
Mom and Dad are an adorable couple, aren't they? :-)
Their son, B, had me laughing during this portion. He would run near where I was standing and then he'd race towards his parents. However, he'd tease Mom and instead of hugging her he would hug Dad. Even at two years old he has a sense of humor.
Thank you to the D Family for having me document your pregnancy! I have enjoyed every minute of my time with you and look forward to showing off your newborn session.
