I had to blog this session right away because it was so much fun! Pregnancy sessions are always a blast, and this was no exception. Melisa is an absolutely beautiful mom-to-be. I met her for the first time earlier this week to talk about her photos. When she asked me if it was okay if we did part of the session at a pumpkin patch, I knew our photography relationship was meant to be :) Melisa loves fall, and baby Chloe is due to arrive shortly after Thanksgiving, so it was perfect!
I never know what to expect with pregnant moms. I always ask to make sure they’re comfortable with having their photos posted on the blog and website. Melisa laughed when I asked her, and told me she had just dressed as a Hooter’s Girl for a friend’s Halloween party, so she wasn’t too self-conscious about showing off her pregnant bod. (And she shouldn’t be. She looks amazing!)
We stole Derrick away from his football game for a little while to get dad in on some of the photo action, too. Melisa and Derrick, thanks so much for letting me photograph you guys. I cannot wait to meet Chloe and help you document her new little life :)
I love this one :)
One of my favorites!!!
Another favorite. I keep saying that about all of them :)
So Derrick and Melisa are big time Georgia fans. Dad already has some Georgia props ready for Chloe’s photo sessions. I hope Chloe likes football….
This is Melisa and Derrick’s dock where Derrick proposed to her, so we had to do some photos here. These next 2 pictures were all Derrick’s idea. I love an involved dad!
Another favorite! Melisa is just absolutely stunning here!
