As soon as Heidi stepped out of their car in this pink dress, I immediately got SO excited for their session! I also have a special affinity for maternity sessions. My own maternity photos are my favorite photos of me of all time! Pregnancy and motherhood just gives a woman a special glow (no seriously) and there is nothing like it! Not to mention the way Phil looked when he was gazing at his baby-mama!!
I love that the Clark’s brought along their fur-baby, Leo! After we took photos with him, we tried to pass him off to a friend of theirs for the remainder of the shoot, but Leo was NOT having it. It was like a scene out of a movie: Leo lunged towards his mom and dad, knocking their friend off her feet and sending her head first onto the grass and even dragged her a few feet! Thankfully she was okay and we all had a laugh about it! Even after, any time I had Heidi lay or sit on the ground, Leo was visibly upset because he thought there was something wrong. I can tell he is going to be a very protective big brother to his little sister when she arrives! The rest of the session was a dream because I didn’t have to tell a single corny joke to make Heidi and Phil laugh…they were cracking up about how silly their puppy was being the whole time! I was also so grateful that Fall has started to come a little early to add some color into the trees at my favorite Rochester park! I cannot wait for this little one to arrive soon so that I can photograph their family again!!
