A couple of months ago, I met up with Melanie and Chris for their maternity photo session, and we chatted all about their new baby on the way as we took some gorgeous shots of them together at Cathy Fromme Prairie. I love the opportunity I get with my Belly-to-Baby clients, being able to chat with them before the baby when they're full of excitement and anticipation - and then getting to see them after the birth, so happy and content and in love with their new little one. Mel had prepared herself mentally to wait past her due date, but sweet Charlotte was very kind to her mama and arrived a few days ahead of schedule. I met her for her photo session last week when she was 6 days old. All my little newborn tricks worked on her, and we were able to keep her very calm and content throughout the entire session, with only one little snack break. She even smiled for me several times! Congratulations to Melanie and Chris on your beautiful new baby girl! :) Here are a few of my favorites from the session. Enjoy!
