It’s hard to put into words what this session meant to me. I planned it for months, but was wanting to do it for so much longer. That’s because these clients also happen to be very good friends of ours. We’ve been friends since they started dating and my husband even performed their wedding ceremony. They went through a lot to have this baby, so I was beyond honored they trusted me to capture this incredible time in their lives.
We started out with a maternity session, that was originally supposed to be on the beach, but the weather decided not to cooperate so we worked out of my studio instead.
Stefanie looked stunning and I love how much she trusted me when I asked her to put on a tulle skirt and lay on the floor!
And then after what felt like an eternity of waiting, beautiful baby Stella was finally here! Her daddy is a airline pilot, so when I saw this little pilot outfit from No. 2 Willow Lane, I knew I had to have it for her session! With the help of my friend Shawn, we custom built the airplane and then I made the gold and pink star banner to match her nursery and complete my vision.
The family is huge baseball fans and their middle daughter plays softball, so I loved the idea of tying in a second meaningful theme!
I’m not just saying it because I’m in love with her and am totally biased, but she really is the easiest newborn I’ve ever worked with!
It’s a lot of pressure working with your friends, but totally worth it when you are able to give them beautiful images. I’m so excited to see the SIX pieces of framed artwork they purchased up in their new home! Thank you Bullock family for letting me be part of your lives! I love you guys!
