When I met the “G” Family in their home to discuss plans for a maternity-family session, I knew I was in for a special treat! That night we spent close to two hours chatting and getting to know each other and by the end of it, they felt like family! I couldn’t wait to return to their home a few weeks later for the actual session. The original intent was to do the session indoors, but the overcast day just begged for the photos to be taken outside! Cloudy days are my favorite to take photos. Sure sunny days can be gorgeous too, but not without its challenges. With the clouds acting as a natural softbox, there’s no need to scout around for a location with sufficient shade – your own backyard (as in this case!) can serve as a beautiful backdrop for photos. Not to mention, I loved watching this family interact ! It was plain to see their love for each other and the excitement for the soon-to-be baby girl joining their brood.
