Maternity Photographs | Cartersville, GA

I have known Clarissa for years and was so excited for her when she told me she was pregnant. And I was even more excited when she asked me to make maternity photographs for her and Patrick towards the end of her pregnancy! We talked about dates, what to wear, and where they wanted to go for their photos. She chose a field in Cartersville that had hills in the distance.

While I had met Patrick before, this was the first time I got a decent chunk of time with him. It was obvious why Clarissa fell in love with him and how perfect the two are for each other. We talked about a lot during their maternity session. From race cars, to Patrick’s labeling obsession (I first saw one of them on her desk at work saying “I LOVE YOU”), to dreams about their baby’s future. It was clear that Henry would have two parents who adore him. And who will be incredibly patient and amused with whatever antics he brings to the table. I expect genetics will be strong with him for trouble making and humor as he grows up. You know that saying about apples not falling far from the tree.

When I later drove to their house to show them their maternity photographs, I got to meet their sweet kitties. The bonus was I got to also plan a little for their newborn session after Henry was born. I love getting advance looks into people’s homes to see what lighting is like in rooms, as well as talk more about how their newborn session will unfold. Planning opportunities like this are the best for talking through possibilities and making sure all the photographs are made that new parents may want. As well as bringing up options they haven’t even considered. Good stuff all around!
