Turner’s Pond Maternity Minishoot

This past spring I started offering at home maternity minishoots – those ones come with a framed print for $250. But sometimes it’s even better to meet somewhere for maternity photos – and if you want to do it at the beautiful Turner’s Pond in Milton, we can do it as one of my Turner’s Pond Minishoots for $175.

I adored getting to know these two wonderful people at Turner’s Pond a few weeks ago. It was such fun thinking about this new little guy arriving in their lives soon!

So wonderful to meet you guys! I’m so excited for this next phase of your lives :)

Wilmington, MA Maternity Photographer: A maternity minishoot at home? Sounds fun!

I’ve had a handful of calls recently about maternity photoshoots (yay for summer babies!) and in more than one of the conversations with the mamas-to-be, we got talking about how maternity photos are just so gorgeous, but when you’re hoping to do photos after your baby is born as well, sometimes it’s hard to justify the expense of doing maternity photos. So then I started thinking – what if I offered a maternity minishoot at home? We could just do a quick little 20 minutes… get loads of pictures…

Lo and behold… my at home maternity minishoot was born

Look how well we did!

20 minutes of beautiful moments – remembering this time in their lives. Don’t you think it was SO worth it? And they get a free framed 8×10 print as part of the package.
Which photo should they choose?

(Oh, if you’re curious, I have lots more information about my new at home 20 minute maternity minishoots on this new page of my website.)

In the 20 minutes we got to be indoors and outdoors, two outfits (it was easy to change because she was at home)… just a really sweet way to remember this time before they became a family of three.

Thank you guys so much for letting me pop over and document you guys at our little maternity minishoot. I’m really excited to meet this sweet new babe in July.

Mama and her big girl

Just a couple of years ago I was taking photos of this big two year old girl for her Baby’s First Year series… so imagine how excited I was to hear that she’s going to be a big sister. Her mama told me that she loves to snuggle, so we knew we had to document that before her little sibling arrives…

And document we did!

This photo just melts me. Absolutely melts me.

Love these photo’s! They are the Best!!!

Louise Belmonte - March 9, 2016 - 9:30 am

Beautiful! Thank you.

Two friends, two bellies

Bang for your buck – that’s what I call this. You visited the blog, thought you might get to see pictures of a gorgeous, round, happy belly, and lo and behold, you get two.  How lucky are you?

My sister (belly on the right) and brother-in-law are expecting my niece to arrive momentarily (pinch me, I know, right?) and I’m finally getting the time to blog all these belly pictures. Quick before babies arrive! The fun part of this is that one of her bestest friends in the whole wide world is ALSO expecting a baby girl, just a few weeks later.

Since these two girls will inevitably be best friends and in each other’s weddings in a few decades, I was excited be the first to officially photograph them together.  We also invited daddies and siblings (be they human or canine, it’s all good), and got piles of pictures of bellies, in all sorts of situations. My favorite, you ask? I think I might like big brother H holding up the bellies in the last shot. But there are loads of fun ones in here. Enjoy :)

We’re talking a lot about bellies around here…

You know what’s fun? Showing up at a family’s home after I’ve done maternity pictures for them, and getting to meet the little person who’d been inside that belly.  Even cooler? When I get to do it again a second time.  I got to visit with 20 month old E this past weekend because his baby sister is arriving soon, and I’d taken pictures of his mama’s belly when he was in there, too.  Super cool.

There are so many here that I love – when he lifts his shirt to show us his belly… (we seem to be discussing bellies a lot around here, wanna see mine?), his kiss with his mama, his hand and his feet and his hugs on her belly… the list goes on.  Enjoy :)

Wonderful to see you guys again!

Gorgeous mama-to-be

I got a message from Hong Kong about this pretty mama – one of her very best friends in the world is literally living on the other side of the world these days and needed to see her Jamaica Plain friend’s big round belly, and what better way than to have me take some pictures?

So, without further ado – these are for Jen… isn’t she GORGEOUS??

This one takes my breath away.

These guys have a house full of kitties, and this one wanted to feel the baby kick. Mama kindly obliged.

Good-natured about it, R told me she’d been terribly sick throughout her pregnancy :( — but along with months of nausea came a rockin’ pregnant bod.  I agreed it was important to document the result of all those months of discomfort.

Total goddess, no?

I think they’re kinda excited.

I love the smiles in this one.  Thanks for having me come out, guys!  Can’t wait to meet baby R :)

Another belly, two years later

It’s been just about two years since I saw this little South End cutie for his (maternity and then) newborn pictures.  And now I got to come back and visit for some more belly pictures of his pretty mama and fun daddy, quick before they move out of their place.  Can’t wait to meet #2!

There’s something added into this classic shot… wonder if you can spy it…

Love that tongue :)

Such a pleasure to run around with you guys – thanks for having me visit.  See you in a few weeks! Yay!

Gwendolyn B - August 18, 2011 - 5:25 pm
