This session was very near and dear to my heart because whether I want to believe it or not I used to babysit this Mama to be!! Yes I’m showing my age! It was such a blessing to be a part of these special moments with this family. It was also very encouraging to see Dad so enthusiastic about the session and having so much fun. Mom was super patient with all of my photographic antics, especially when the session went dark, really really dark, nighttime dark, and we found ourselves in the woods, in the rain, in the dark! I had forgotten about Daylight Savings Time! It certainly pushed my artistic visions to the max and forced me to see past my mistake and continue creating great portraits. I know these two will make great parents and I can’t wait to meet baby girl.

I want to tell all you amazing Parents to Be about three upcoming maternity events.
The first is the next Bradley Method Birthing Class and will be starting October 11th. This is taught by amazing instructors to help you and your partner through the birthing process while reducing the anxiety and stress over what may or may not happen on your delivery day. They also help you through many other new parenting skills such as breastfeeding, nutrition, newborn care, and post-partum care for mama. Although I went to lamas classes when I was delivering, it was more of an informal class in the hospital with not much sensitivity or warmth. The Bradley Birthing Classes creat a warm, compassionate environment where you can learn and prepare with your partner and new friends. Visit Happy Mana Wellness at the link below or over on Facebook.
The second is the Spa Babymoon at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, RI on November 17th. I’m so excited for all you new parents! For my first two pregnancies nothing like this was around or recommended. My last pregnancy I did go to the chiropractor and once for a maternity massage. You couples out there have so much more at your disposal and this one event makes me so envious! If you have not had the pleasure of frequenting the Ocean House now is your chance! It’s a breathtaking, historical chateau right in the heart of New England and on the ocean! It doesn’t get better than that. Visit Ocean House at the link below or visit them on Facebook.
The third is my very own Limited Edition Winter Sessions. I will be giving away one maternity limited edition session this season. I found a great little tree farm last year which was perfect for winter sessions. The lighting was amazing and there were three perfect scenes to choose from for your session. The Overlook & Lanterns Scene, The Rustic Red Barn Scene, and Pine Trees & Blanket Scene. For more information please sign up for the newsletter below.
Feel free to tell me all about your participation in these events and visit me over on Facebook as well. Facebook
This was a Gorgeous Garden Glamour Maternity Session showcasing this couples love and anticipation for their new arrival. Harkness Park in Waterford, CT is a beautiful location where I hold my Garden Glamour Sessions from May – October. The gardens are absolutely amazing and the landscape creates a blissful scene for creating beautiful artwork of your family. It’s always fun to head down to the beach for oceantfront portraits before ending the session. I can’t wait to get back into the gardens this year!!
I was so excited when this new Mom-to-be called me. At the time I was hoping to do an outdoor winter session so when she messaged me I knew it would be perfect. Although it ended up being after the snow, but before any blossoms it turned out beautiful with the Norwich Harbor as our location. And how great is her orange dress and leopard print coat!
I love these black & whites!
