Y’all. It is so wonderful to me when clients come back for all of the different sessions their family needs throughout their lives. Brandon and Danielle came to me in 2012 for their engagement pictures! We have kept up on Facebook, and when they found out they were expecting, Brandon called me up and wanted to get a gift card for Maternity photos or a Family session for Danielle as a surprise!! Isn’t that the sweetest thing ever?! After he gifted the session to her, we decided to integrate and have a family session / maternity session in one. The best time to take maternity photos is around 28-32 weeks pregnant. You have a good sized bump but aren’t super big and uncomfortable or swollen yet! That is an important balance to hit!! These family and maternity pictures were a blast to take, and it was great to catch up with Brandon, Danielle, and Tristan even more! Danielle makes the cutest pregnant mama! Such a perfectly round bump. I can’t wait to get to meet their little one. Check back in a few months or so because we are going to get to do a squishy newborn session of their baby girl coming soon!! Bartling family – I am SO excited for this new addition to your family. Congratulations again on this new blessing!
