One of the best things about my library programs are the families I meet. I immediately hit it off with mom Nina when I met her and her son Owen at my first Islip Public Library pet portrait program. We connected on Instagram and I then shot her daughter Juliette’s 1st birthday photos and some adorable Valentine’s Day photos to surprise her husband Donald. I was so excited for them when I found out Nina was expecting again!
Nina told me her babies tend to come early, so we planned a session a little earlier than normal. Boy, was that a good idea. A few days after our session, she was put on bed rest. We got that in just in the nick of time! Nina was right about her babies too. At the time of this writing, little baby Evelyn has already joined us and she’s doing well!
Since Nina knew she wanted to take it easy for her maternity session, we decided to do it at my home studio. When they arrived, the light was still very nice out, so we ended up walking around my yard in a few different spots before heading inside. Juliette and Owen had a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyed the spread of cookies I’d put out for the family to enjoy!
I’m so excited for this new party of five and I can’t wait to meet sweet little Evelyn! Here are some of my favorite photos from Nina’s maternity family session!
Originally, Nina was going to come back into the studio for her viewing appointment to see all her photos and we were going to take a few more photos of Juliette in her 2nd birthday outfit. But by that time, Nina was on bed rest, so I went over to their house and we took a few shots of Juliette in a little ball pit they fashioned out of a kiddy pool. Juliette enjoyed that and a little time in her swing. Their dog Bolt even made a quick appearance!
I’m so excited for this sweet family and for Juliette and Owen to get a new baby sister. I can’t wait to meet little Evelyn!
