Photographing Neil and Kristin for their maternity session was such a blast. They cracked me up the entire time and I L-O-V-E-D Neil’s shirt that read “The Man Behind The Bump.” My in-home studio sits on an acre and a half of land with a stream running through it and connects to miles of green-belt trails and I’m always hoping my Mommies will be willing to get their feet wet. Kristin was game for anything I asked. Lay down in the grass? You betcha! Wade in the stream while I investigate a blue crawdad swimming nearby? Of course! Pose in the studio for traditional photographs too? She was game. Having so much fun at their maternity session made me really excited for the day baby Neil Jr. arrived and I got to photograph the entire family. Of all the images we captured that day, my favorite is the image with the new Grandma and Grandpa. Grandpa’s happy smile and gentle touch of newborn Neil were absolutely heartwarming. To see such a big strong man be so gentle with a delicate baby boy, made my heart go pitter-patter!
