Oh, these photos make me ache for summer! And I REALLY can’t believe the little bump in the these pictures is going to be a year old in no time at all.
Tristan is – well, Tristan is stunning, inside and out. As a former doula and now a labor and delivery RN, she has long been a staple in the Fairbanks birth community, and I’ve previously had the honor of working alongside her at a birth – making it an especially joyful announcement when she told me she was expecting her first child. When we met to discuss what she had in mind for her maternity photos, she told me she just wanted to capture the beauty of pregnancy and how wonderful it was that her body was experiencing such a transformation. She encouraged me to be creative and welcomed any ideas I offered.
I have to admit, it was kind of music to my ears…and my lens. I mean, it’d be hard to go wrong with a beautiful mama like Tristan, but I still can’t help feeling like our session was magic. I had such a good time that beautiful sunny evening (making Tristan sit in a swarm of mosquitoes – sorry, Tristan!!).
Enjoy – and check back soon to see the Fresh 48 session that shortly followed this session. It’s worth it.
