I’ve been obsessed with this session ever since I had the pleasure of meeting Dan + Rachel. With that said, I became super excited when I first noticed that Rachel had a link to a photography site at the bottom of her email. I loveloveLOVE when fellow photographers reach out for their own family sessions. Of course, I had to check out her blog and I loved how her personality shined through {she seriously had me in a fit of giggles — you HAVE to go look … and see the new, sweet babe that was born on the 7th!}. I knew they were going to rock their session.

We began at their home in Birmingham, which has this HUGE picture window that was meant to be photographed. The first thing I tell my clients when we’re about to get started is that my primary objective is to capture now: what they are doing in their daily lives in this moment. This especially rings true with maternity and newborn lifestyle sessions, as their worlds are forever going to be changed in just a short amount of time.
It only makes sense that we began on the couch. 🙂

I cannot get over how photogenic they both are — and Rachel, you are flawless!

I love these two. 🙂

See. I told you.

We then chose to visit the nursery for a bit.

And then my fave, some bare belly shots.

Now it was time for some outdoor goodness. The light this evening was incredible … and Rachel could not be more adorable.

Gah! I can’t even handle it.
