I can't even tell you how perfect this day was - or how perfect this sweet little family is! Photographers in the Pacific NW often fear this time of year - drizzly, gray, cold - not exactly a recipe for photo perfection. The day of Rodney and Jenn's maternity session was no exception to Portland's winter weather ritual. And they have a 3 year old daughter who I was afraid of turning into a popsicle during an outside shoot! Fortunately, this family just moved into a new home, and despite the chaos of the few weeks prior to their session, we were able to find moments of quiet peace and A TON of beautiful natural light in their home. That's one of the great beauties of being a natural light photographer - seek that clean light, and ye shall find! Shot after shot, we pushed through and captured something beautiful: the special bond and love in this family of three that will soon become a family of four.
I'm so happy I was able to share in this joy with them. I think, secretly, maternity sessions will always be my favorite. Blessings to Rodney and Jenn as they welcome their son and begin a new adventure!
