Maternity Session| Rochester, NY | Highland park ,Warner castle, and sunken gardens
I met Jessica on a warm spring afternoon at Highland park to do some “waiting for Justyce” maternity photos! Her sister had entered her to win a maternity session with Snap in Time Photography long before Jessica had even announced her pregnancy! It was a beautiful afternoon and we got some wonderful photos of Jessica’s sweet bump.
I spent a few hours doing some research prior to Jessica’s session to find some inspiration for her photos! I suggested that Jessica brings along an ultrasound photo for her maternity session to hold. How sweet did those pictures come out?
I HIGHLY recommend bringing some props to your sessions. Any type of session. We can incorporate things that are meaningful to you and your family, from an ultrasound photo to a teddy bear. Bring anything that you want to your session, and I will find a way to make it look great in your photos.
I asked Jessica to talk about her experience in booking her maternity session with Snap in Time Photography, and this is what she said.
When I had my maternity photos done it was my first experience with Melissa. In my opinion, first meetings are always a little awkward, and thats just that. I expected nothing different this time, but during my shoot I felt everything but. Melissa made me feel comfortable, calm and relaxed. I had never taken pictures outside of a studio and wasn’t really sure what to expect but it was great!! I love the fact of using nature and unconventional backgrounds and locations. Since my maternity photos I’ve seen Melissa at my baby shower, to do my families photos, and not to mention referring friends! For anyone considering Melissa for a session I would not only say go for it!! but look into different locations and poses because she is not your conventional studio photographer, she takes your input and works hard to give you exactly what you want.”
I also saw a photo of a beautiful mama to be holding chalkboard with “coming soon..” written on it and swooned! There is nothing more exciting than a baby’s arrival. I am so excited that Jessica is going to meet her sweet little girl soon. I have absolutely fallen in love with motherhood over the last 14 months, and I know Jessica will feel the same way as soon as she hears her sweet girls first cry.
I cannot wait to meet Justyce! She is a well loved little girl already! Her Aunt Diondra threw her the most incredible baby shower complete with a caricature artist and magician. Those pictures are coming another day =) Justyce will be making her arrival any day, and I cannot wait to meet her for her newborn session!
