I rarely ever do maternity portraits. Actually, I NEVER do them. But, when you have someone like Alexa to shoot... and there aren't any letter blocks or anything like that, just GORGEOUS light and a simple outfit... You can't say no. I'm not into the normal maternity photos with the props (totally not bashing anyone who does like that, it's just not my thing), but give me beautiful light and a subject and I'm good.
We attempted to do Alexa's maternity photos just last June, but she went into labor the exact morning we scheduled to do them. Good thing she got pregnant again right away! She just had a sweet little boy named Hannan. You can view the upcoming birth story video about Hannan... very soon!
