Samantha, Curt and Baby P *Maternity* {Soon-to-Be!}

I had been incredibly excited for this session for a long time and so, when the wind was blowing, huge snowflakes were falling and it was maybe not so great to travel, I was really disappointed for a reschedule.  However, the following weekend proved to be an absolutely gorgeous sunny 35 degrees (hey, it IS Wisconsin!) and the wind seemed to be almost nonexistent as we got started with this beautiful maternity session.

Samantha and I had been meeting for quite a few months preparing her maternity timeline leading up to this session at 36 weeks.  Throughout this time I learned that Samantha and Curt were keeping themselves very busy with volleyball and home renovations, and keeping their baby name a big ol' secret!  Their home is coming together nicely and their name is still a secret and I remembered one thing I knew about this couple from the past, they sure are a blast and are up, for just about anything :)

I had a wonderful session Samantha and Curt, and I really, really can't wait to meet Baby P!  I'm sure he is going to be absolutely adorable and I'm telling you right now, he's gonna sleep for me.  Isn't that right, Mr Baby P? I'll see you all very soon!

I'm HUGE on gorgeous landscapes and even more so on landscaped black and whites.  This real moment was beautiful in color, but it's stunning in black and white.  Samantha and Curt haven't received their images yet, but I have! And this 8x16 is even more amazing in print.

Little Miss Sophia, 3 months old! {Littles!}

Little Miss Sophia is a member of my First Year Baby program.  Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of shooting her gorgeous newborn photos and last weekend I got to go back for her 3 month session!   Sophia is smiling now and almost ticklish, she has learned how to effectively stick her tongue out at the camera, she responds to her name, grabs her toes and is very, very alert.  

Mom and I both love Alice in Wonderland, and upon hearing from Auntie that it was obsessively played during Mom's childhood, I decided to throw out a fun thought....what about a teacup and mini top-hat, Unbirthday style?  Last time Sophia was not intent on trying the teacup, so we went for it first this time around, and thankfully, she still fits.  

Mom and Dad both love the idea of documenting her growth through the same images, staged slightly different each time so I got to take back my nest, do Daddy's hands and the crown of Sophia's head (but this time she was holding her toes! EEps!) and repeat Sophia with Mommy & Daddy both holding her.  I can't wait to show off the story boards of these when they're all done!   So, without further a-due I present to you, Sophia, month 3.
