We don’t shoot a lot of maternity sessions, but wow! When it all comes together with perfect light and a darling, sweet family, it’s just so much fun! I seriously started to consider, “Maybe we should be shooting more maternity sessions?” And who knows, we might! But, I’m reminded once again it’s not the type of session that makes a shoot go so well, it’s the people we’re photographing. Sure, fantastic lighting, beautiful outfits, and a stellar location definitely helps, but it really all comes down to the people themselves and the connection that’s made there. And this family is seriously so sweet!
We had never met before this session. Kira is a photographer herself and had reached out through Instagram several months ago asking about a maternity session. And I’m so glad it worked out that we could photograph this special season in their life. This was the type of session where you almost wish you were getting together for coffee to hang out and chat after a session! We love photographing and creating beautiful images, but we also just love people and getting to know who they are, hence the reason sometimes we wish we were just hanging out over coffee and chatting! Can that be a thing? 😉 Kira and her little family radiate a happiness that is more than just over the excitement of a new little one. It’s the joy that radiates from a person when Christ is their foundation and that is what’s shining forth in this little family. It was beautiful to witness and we love that we got to see a glimpse into their life. 🙂
Like I said before, Kira is a photographer herself, so if you’re in the St. Louis area and needing a family photographer/lifestyle session, you should check out her website here, or social media, here and here.
Kira, your family is absolutely precious and we loved our time with you all! I’m so excited for you all and your little boy that will soon be here! Lily is going to be the best big sister and I’m sure will be a little mommy to him too. 😉 Enjoy your little sneak peek from your maternity session with us!
