I had the opportunity last week to do some new portraits of Austin, Keisha & Brooklyn. The first portrait I did for Keisha was a maternity session a few weeks before Brooklyn arrived. (You can see that portrait here.) They live out of state so I really don’t get to do this as often as I would like. It’s sure fun when they are here and I can try and capture another phase in the life of the rapidly changing Brooklyn.
Back on October 4th of this year I did a post (link) with an image from a maternity portrait session I did for Keisha and her husband Austin. The beautiful mother-to-be is now beautiful mom with a beautiful daughter. I know in most instances that would be an excessive use of the adjective ’beautiful’ however, in this instance, it is absolutely apropos. Brooklyn was born one month ago and I finally was able to do a portrait session. I thought I’d post another image from Keisha’s session along with one of Brooklyn for a little “Before & After”.
Is anything more beautiful than an expecting mother? The first question people ask when I announce that I am a professional photographer is: “What kind of photography do you do?” I typically answer that I enjoy photographing “beauty”. I am fully aware that people are more comfortable if they can ‘title’ you as a portrait, landscape, architectural, etc. photography. I simply enjoy photographing beauty and that may include all of the above. So, back to my image of the beautiful expecting mother Keisha, it doesn’t get any any better than this!
