Rhode Island Maternity Session // Heidi + Scott

Man, what a feeling it is to be posting these lush green, sundressy photos when all there is outside is sticks and dirt snow. I am terribly far behind. The baby bump in these photos is now a 1.5 month old baby boy named Gavin!

This was a session that took place in the tumultuous time between summer and fall. Initially, we met up despite the chance of rain and 5 minutes into the session, the skies dumped WATERFALLS on us and it wound up being one of the biggest storms of the season! After rescheduling twice due to rain, and getting super nervous as the due date was approaching, we finally had a successful session together! Heidi and Scott are such a fantastic, adorable couple, so excited to be first-time parents. I loved getting to work with them back in September! (Even though I mistakenly called Scott “Josh” the whole time. What a mess.)

There’s just something about maternity sessions that I absolutely love and I wish I got more of them. There’s always a gentle, comfortable love that surrounds the session with a smidge of anticipation. They’re so beautiful.

Sometimes there's moments in this job that really remind me of the power of photography. After taking photos for ten years, this is a rare moment, and something I usually take for granted. 

Jillian and Mike...and Zelie! // A Maternity Session in Narragansett, Rhode Island

Jillian and Mike are just the example of a perfect couple. They have the ability to make eachother laugh in an instant, giggling over seemingly nothing together. They can transition from goofballs to completely intimate flawlessly, and, my personal favorite, get so wrapped up in eachother that it barely feels like I'm even there. That's my goal for every session I do, and somehow, this couple does it effortlessly and naturally. That's a gift right there.

A couple years ago, they were one of the first people to book an engagement session with me! They had a beautiful wedding in May 2015, and reconnected with me in July to take their maternity photos. Scarborough beach in Narragansett, RI, was the unique and gorgeous backdrop to this session. When I first showed up to meet them, Jillian and Mike were relaxing in their beach chairs watching the ocean together. I almost didn't want to interrupt!

A little over two weeks after this session, Jillian gave birth to baby Zelie, with the best facial expressions and a full head of hair. Congratulations again, Jillian and Mike!!
