Well I figured I better go ahead and get these photographs blogged since today I shot the newborn pictures for the babe inside that beautiful belly! (Side note: Hello time, if you could just slow down a little bit that would be wonderful!) These two little dudes couldn’t wait to meet their little sibling when I saw them at their momma’s maternity shoot. They anxiously loved on their momma’s belly and made guesses if they would be welcoming a baby brother or a baby sister into their home. And can we just take a moment to talk about how gorgeous Colleen looks when she is pregnant. And not only is she rocking her bump, but she did it in heals while also corralling two little boys. Let me tell you, she is a total rockstar.
We shot these photographs at a really small local park in Birmingham called Barnum Park. We originally picked the park because it had beautiful tulips. Unfortunately, because of rain we had to reschedule the shoot and we just caught the tail end of the blooms. But what I realized is this is a really, really great place for photo shoots. And you know what else I realized, that sometimes we just totally overanalyze where we do our family shoots! I never would have thought to use this park for a session, but I totally loved it! It had a nice pathway, clumps of trees, high grass, and that really cool old, brick front to a school building. Realizing how much I enjoyed shooting at this park made me want to drive around and reconsider more small parks. Sometimes less is more, right?! How many other cool locations am I missing out on because the park just seems too small? Do you have any must consider locations? I would love to add some more locations to my list of favorite spots.
You won’t have to wait long to find out if the Miller family added a boy or a girl to their home! Their newborn pictures are being uploaded as I write this post. I can’t wait to be a part of your family as we watch you grow, baby Miller!
