Maternity : Mommy & Baby “A”

Shelby Leigh Photography | Montgomery, AL | Maternity Photographer

One of my favorites to date, and for so many reasons! When this gorgeous Mommy inquired about a one-on-one maternity session, and we thoroughly discussed her vision, I can’t lie – I was thrilled!! She let me know that we still had a couple months, and I love how prepared and together she was with her vision and her taste! She sent me images of her maternity gown…heavenly!! It’s so beautiful, and even more beautiful on this gorgeous pregnant Mommy! I had wanted to do a styled maternity session like this for some time, and just talking over her expectations and seeing some of the images she had in mind made me giddy!! The time came for our photography session, and although it was a little chilly, she braved it well, and we captured some AMAZING images, of Mommy and daughter, wild and free, and full of love.

I was also super excited to have my friend and photographer colleague with me to capture some of these sweet images too! I wanted to make sure I had enough hands on deck to work with the gown and angles, but thankfully I had it covered for the most part and Becky was able to add some image to her already amazing portfolio as well! I think it’s safe to say that we all had a blast, and the images…they are the perfect way to capture this moment in this sweet family’s life. It definitely needed a little extra pink, a military family with two boys…Baby A was welcomed with open arms, and added a touch of pink to everyone’s lives!

There are so many stunning images to share… I loved making this collage to capture this maternity session with a few of the images that Mommy loves!

Seriously, could she be more stunning?!!!

This one might be my new Mother’s Day favorite!!! Such a perfect and beautiful depiction of Motherhood!!

Mommy holding up the letter “A”…for precious Azalea. LOVE.

My sweet friend, Becky, from Capturing Life Photography came with me as an assistant/second shooter, and we had a fantastic time!! Loved capturing her in action!

The hair…the sweet looking down. Gah! Love!

She seriously makes pregnancy look as beautiful as it is! I was not nearly this stunning, so um, yeah, I might be a little jealous that she make it look so beautiful and easy!

This.Image!!! I don’t know what it is, but it knowing Aly now and the amazing mother she is…it just seems so laid back to me. The whole interpretation of this moment…expecting a third baby, and she’s so gorgeous and chill about it! I love it!

LOVE that Aly let me play a little longer than the quoted time…had to catch a perfect silhouette image!
