For a first-time mom, pregnancy is an entirely new and unfamiliar experience. Some parts, like the anticipation of a little one and the celebrations before their arrival, are memories she will cherish forever. And some are memories that um, well, she will look back on less fondly. But whether a mom-to-be feels like a glowing moon goddess, an uncomfortable disaster, or anything in between, stepping in front of the camera to document this once-in-a-lifetime moment of preparation for your first child is a must! And as Sacramento photographers, we can’t wait to tell those stories! Incredible stories like Taylor & Dillon’s!
This session was especially special. Not only for the first-time parents-to-be but for us as well. You see these two are a past A&D Couple. It’s so wonderful for this incredible family to have us share in so many of their memories.
And when it comes to any photo session, but especially maternity sessions, the location sets the mood! Before our session, we decided on the Bywater Hollow Lavender Farm for our session. It’s the perfect, enchanting location, as you can definitely see in the images! And Taylor’s dress brought the vision fully to life! With that adorable blue color, she looked absolutely radiant.
It was also extremely important to us that they felt comfortable and cared for during our session, which is why we tried to stay in the shade for most of it! Their session was scheduled in the middle of July during a slight heatwave and temps reached 99 degrees that day! They were such troopers though and didn’t let the heat put a damper on their portraits.
As we laughed at the very vocal goats on the farm grounds and spotted some fish splashing around in the lake, we had such a fantastic time preserving this beautiful season in Taylor & Dillon’s life!
Children grow and change so quickly that documenting each step in the journey is deeply important. And we love that we are able to document the beginning of this exciting journey into motherhood for the women of Sacramento.
Congratulations, Taylor and Dillon! We had such a blast catching up with you, and we can’t wait to see all the photos of little Henry when he makes his debut! And we hope to take photos for you again so soon!
Are you preparing to welcome your first little one into your family? We’d love to get to know you and take your maternity photos! Just say hello, and we can begin planning a session you’ll love!
