Julie contacted me a while back about a snowy winter maternity session. She’s expecting her second baby boy soon, and decided to go ahead with a Baby Bundle session which includes maternity photos and newborns We booked for late December at a local park since we live in Ohio and duh, it snows here! Except…. it didn’t. At all. It was *freezing* when Julie came down for her session but there was no snow. Luckily, she is gestating a human being and called herself an oven :*) Julie and her husband have a 19 month old, who we had wanted to be involved in the session. Unfortunately, in the freezing cold, that wasn’t really much of an option. We took what we could, given the less than ideal situation and they came out beautifully but I had this gut feeling that a lifestyle session at their home would be more fitting. I drove up to their home a few days later and little C was all smiles and giggles and silliness. He was all movement, too so Julie popped on some “Wiggles” and C stopped playing for about 14 seconds :*) The perfect toddler!
I cannot wait to meet new Baby Brother (not sharing his name!) He has such a loving home to come to. Homemade seems to be a running theme (as well as a really perfect nautical feel) for Baby’s room. Jeff made this amazing shelf:
Julie’s mother made many of the details in the nursery. She made a quilt, a pad for their changing station, and pillows for Julie’s awesome grey rocker. Julie hand painted the canvases over the dresser.
The other thing I have to mention, is Julie’s laughter. Julie has the *best* laugh. She has one of those laughs that you can’t help but laugh along with.
I cannot wait to go back up for her newborn session in a few weeks!! So many thanks to Julie, Jeff, Erica and little C for such a fun session!
