A couple of weeks ago now, I was asked by my cousin and his wife to do some family/maternity photos for them, and of course I said yes! They're expecting their second daughter at the end of May, and I'm so excited to meet the newest member of the family! We went into the woods around Royal Roads University, and lucked out with a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. It rains pretty much nonstop this time of year on the west coast, so we were so happy for nice weather.
I forgot how hard it is to take pictures of little kids, and Arabella was running wild for most of the shoot, but we managed to get her to sit still and smile for a couple shots, and I'm so happy with how they turned out. Not to mention those last two photos. We had the hardest time trying to convince her to hug/kiss her momma's belly. She finally gave in and as she put her little hands onto her mom's belly, the baby kicked, resulting in the sweetest reaction from Arabella.
Taking these photos really got my creative juices flowing again. Hopefully this is just the beginning of many more photoshoots to come!
