When Shannon showed up looking radiant in this dress, my jaw dropped. At first, I was just in awe of how beautiful both she and the dress were, but then I realized the dress looked familiar.
Shannon proceeded to tell me the story of how she found me in the first place — and it happened to be from a photo I posted from a styled shoot on top of a mountain, and a bride wearing this dress! Yes, this is actually a bridal gown but I may love it even MORE for a maternity session! Shannon told me that once she saw that photo she knew she had to book a session with me and find that exact dress to wear for it. And that totally MADE MY DAY!
She and Steve also wanted to do something a little out of the box for their session. So once we were done with all of the “fancy” shots, they threw on their bathing suits and we splashed around in the water! I thought this was such a fun thing to add to a maternity session. You definitely don’t see those types of shots as often but they turned out SO CUTE!
I may encourage all of my mamas having summertime babies to consider a few shots in their bathing suits too if they’re comfortable! I know for some women, pregnancy brings out a whole new sense of confidence. So why not show off in a suit while growing a human?! 🙂
