I was honored to do the first maternity session for K, as the H family prepares to celebrate the arrival of their fifth baby, knowing it would be momma’s last pregnancy. Yes, you heard that correctly - it’s gonna be the fifth child * wink *. The dress K picked out for herself was just perfect for the casual, fun feel they chose to truly represent their family dynamic. As I’ve been photographing more regularly over the last year, I find that I’m falling into a new “style,” if you want to call it that. But I truly believe that how we see the world (and express what we see) has more to do with our spiritual, inner state of being.
With that said, I also have to mention that K and family have been a part of my inner transformation over the last year. I started going to church with them in early November of last year. I suppose we all have our ways of living vicariously through others, and that’s how I feel when I look at these photos. You can see a sharing of love and connection between these seven souls (six plus baby!) in the way they just hang out together. And the way the children look at their parents is enough to bring tears to your eyes!
The session was fun, but it was also * rad * because we even found a rock shaped like Ohio, and it’s featured in the 4th pick from the bottom. That was very symbolic for me because in that moment, everything felt exactly as it was supposed to be, in just the right place, at just the right time.
Thank you so much, H family, for allowing me to document this very special time in your lives.
