It was such a pleasure photographing Julie and her gorgeous little girl Aimee at their home for this relaxed maternity shoot. Last time I photographed them together, Aimee was still a baby and since then she's grown into a delightful young girl - and she's going to be a big sister soon! And just look how beautiful (and glowing) this pregnant mama is!
Maternity shoots are becoming much more popular and as much as I appreciate beautiful photos of pregnant ladies out in the fields, wearing flower crowns and hugging their expanding bellies, I believe that a pregnant woman feels her most comfortable at home - surrounded by her favourite things and people she loves. That's why I loved capturing these sweet, endearing and unscripted moments that these two lovely ladies had and I also enjoyed following their everyday routines. I could tell it felt special for them to have this time together before the new baby arrives, and had it documented to bottle up this particular chapter in their lives.
I couldn't be happier with Alina's work for our at-home maternity photoshoot with my daughter Aimee. Alina is extremely talented and professional and will make you feel completely at ease.
