All roads to pregnancy are different. Some are clearly planned, with few bumps … they include detailed road maps. Some “roads” are more like roller coasters, with surprises around each turn, ups and downs. And some are like that road trip your parents forced you to take when you were a teenager. Forced smiles, frustrations, and counting down to that destination. However easy or complicated the journey, once pregnancy passes a certain stage, at least one new life has been created and the lives of everyone involved are forever changed. This lovely couple’s journey was a bit like that road trip with the parents, but it’s clear that the end result is sheer joy. They have a healthy and beautiful little boy and are so at ease as new parents, it’s like they’ve been parenting for years.
Cayden was such a trooper for his session! He slept amazingly.
For Cayden’s session, mom wanted a “cabin-in-the-woods” type feel. I was more than happy to oblige mom’s wishes. My heart almost stopped when I looked at some of these images at the back of the camera, as I knew they’d be absolutely perfect!
I also incorporated some wood elements into the newborn gallery as I felt it would be a great complement! When I brought the imagery into my computer for editing, I wasn’t disappointed at all.
In keeping with mom’s request, I used some gorgeous blues for some of Cayden’s posed imagery. I also loved the shades of green Courtney incorporated into the maternity session. I absolutely love this color of green!
These sessions were such an honor to photograph. Enjoy this small peek into their journey from belly to baby!
