At Shalyn Nygaard Photography, I love focusing on the ages that I’m passionate about photographing – newborns, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers – of course including cake smash sessions! It was only natural that I increase my offerings to include maternity photography! Now expectant parents can come to me for capturing or announcing all of their baby news from announcing they are expecting to gender reveals to capturing the beauty that is a mother’s body during pregnancy :)
Thanks to Hallie and Casey for trusting me with your maternity – and upcoming newborn – sessions. This Momma was a pleasure to photograph – her skin is so gorgeous and flawless that I didn’t have to touch up a single thing! She rocked her session so much that as I was editing I was curious if she watched America’s Next Top Model. Turns out she does catch some episodes and I could tell because she definitely knew how to smize ;) All the fans out there know what I’m talking about.
Hallie and I love this image the most from their session! I love the peaceful feel of it – a mother patiently (or at least trying to be patient!) waiting for her baby to arrive, a long-awaited baby.
As a photographer, one of the things that I often hear is that couples haven’t gotten photos of themselves taken in a long time – perhaps since their wedding. Even then, I often hear that in the digital age, many of the wedding photos are still on the disk – never printed and no professional photos displayed. That’s why I love this image, it is only about Casey and Hallie, not the baby that is soon to arrive and change so much in their lives, just their relationship. This recurring story is also why it is my goal with each session to have my clients order photos to display in their home, not hidden away on a disk.
