The Session That Almost Was Not
The day before a maternity photography session in Orange Beach, Alabama was scheduled, I received a text from a concerned Momma-to-be. Her husband and herself had received lobster-like sunburns and were afraid they were going to have to cancel their session.
I quickly reassured this soon-to-be Momma and told her I had some photoshop skills to help with those red faces and terrible tan lines. She sighed a sigh of relief and said she would text me in the morning to confirm.
Luckily, the next morning, I received her text and the session was a go! I was excited, of course, because I really (like realllllyyy) love maternity sessions! There’s something about a glowing first-time Mom and Dad with beautiful scenery behind them. I adore it! I also get a little wince of pregnancy fever (is that a thing? it is for me! I LOVED being pregnant).
Maternity Photography- Session Time
It was finally session time and this sweet couple (trio- counting sweet baby boy in the belly) and myself are heading out the boardwalk to the rocks. We finally make it and I begin snapping a few pictures when all of a sudden a random man starts waving his arms and yelling at us! We all turn to him with concern and he points behind us and hollers, “LOOK!”. We all get whiplash from turning so quickly and in the distance we see the Blue Angels approaching.
We all immediately get SO excited (okay..okay, maybe I get a little more excited than them). I get the couple in position so I can get the Blue Angels flying behind them.
After the shot, I find out that Daddy-to-be LOVES the Blue Angels as well! I see the Blue Angels fly over often but have only captured them in the background of a session twice, so this was a real treat for this couple (and myself)!
We ended up getting several unique shots during this amazing maternity session, including a grumpy little Heron and an entire flock of Seagulls. Check out more from the session below!
With a little luck and some photoshop skills for their sunburns, this maternity session is easily one of my favorites! Contact me if you’d like to book a session! I’d love to meet you!
