When it comes capturing life’s biggest moments, we always remember to capture the action and life as it’s happening: birthdays, graduations, reunions, anniversaries. But sometimes we forget to capture what comes before: the lead up, the wait, the hard work – the stuff that makes those big moments so thrilling and monumental. Pregnancy is a great example of that. It’s so amazing what a woman’s body can do. But not just that, it’s equally remarkable how much love, prayer, and preparation a couple puts forth to give their baby the very best start imaginable. Their love for that tiny beating heart begins long before baby’s arrival, and that stage of eager anticipation is well worth documenting.
I’m so glad this gorgeous expecting mother and her husband made it a priority to document their pregnancy together. Susanne looked absolutely stunning in her long, flowing dress. I really loved her style! She picked out a neutral-colored dress for these classic photos, but the top was made of soft shimmering sequins. Not only did the contrast help accentuate her perfect bump, it also added a little sparkle and texture to the photos. She pulled it off beautifully.
I already loved Susanne’s graceful, natural poses, but as soon as her hubby joined in by her side, her face lit up even more. She has a certain glow and happiness about her when he’s there. They are the sweetest couple together, and he’s such an attentive, loving husband. I can already tell that he’s going to be the most amazing dad to their little girl. There’s just something special about the bond between father and daughter. Plus, he’s already a pro. His beautiful daughter joined in for a few family shots and helped hold up the letters to form “Evie,” the name they picked for her baby sister. The shots of the three of them melted my heart. Congratulations to this sweet family!
