Henna Belly {Boston, MA Maternity Photographer}

I hope you are ready for a lot of belly photos! My friend decided to have her belly decorated with henna near the end of the pregnancy.  She made it into a little party and invited some friends over.  Most of the women there were pregnant with their second baby or just had a baby.  It was pretty incredible and  nice that the group is going through similar experiences and challenges especially with the older siblings.

The henna artist took a drawing that Maureen had sent her and altered it a bit to createa beautiful piece of art on Maureen’s belly.  I think it was quite challenging since the canvas kept moving – either the baby moved or Maureen had to breathe!   It looks like so much patience is needed to create something like this.  After the henna was finished was dry, sheets of paper were placed on Maureen’s stomach so she could put her shirt down later in the evening.   I loved the whole idea and it was a nice night out!

Since the party took place at night and it was a more intimate affair with just friends I decided not to use my flash and just increase my ISO.  I didn’t want the flash to be intrusive and decide to convert most of the photos into black and white.

About 5 days later we took some maternity photos, which can be seen here.  We weren’t sure if this session would happen since it was a week before her due date.  Normally, I take maternity photos between 32-36 weeks.  This is because most women look pregnant and the last month can be very uncomfortable. Maureen just looks amazing even with her due date a week away.

Sunset Maternity Session {Boston MA Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

It was a lot of fun for me to meet up with this family for a sunset maternity session.  I first met this couple when I  was pregnant with my son at a hynobirthing class at Mt. Auburn Hospital.  When our children were almost a year or so we ran into each other a library program and have tried to stay in touch.  They are such a sweet couple and it was a lot of fun for me to hang out with them at this park, which the dad actually uses for running.  It is one of my favorite locations to shoot at and even though the greenery isn’t out just yet it still provided a beautiful backdrop.

Mom is about 39 weeks in these photos and looks incredible! A few days before the session she had a henna artist come to the house and put together a design for her.  It looks amazing and I’m glad that the henna hadn’t washed off yet.  I can’t wait to meet the newborn girl and as you can tell everyone is excited!  Big brother was eager to point out his sister Fiona to me and he wasn’t shy about it.  He also was very proud of the rock he found and wanted to show me how he could jump off of it!

MommyBites Raffle Winner {Boston, MA Baby Photographer}

When I was a vendor last month at the MommyBites’ Ultimate Moms’ Night out event I had a raffle at my table for a free mini session and Sarah won!  You’d be surprised but sometimes people don’t claim prizes so I was excited when we were able to set something up right away.  She was really lucky and actually won 3 prizes that night. So, this past Saturday, I met up with Sarah and her family at a Belmont MA park.  Her son is 7 months old and isreally adorable.  The 6-12 month period is such a great age to have photos taken because the babies are so inquisitive and make the best faces. The weather all day kept fluctuating so what was supposed to be sunset session actually took place around 5:30pm, approximately 2 hours before sunset.  As a photographer, that time of day can be a bit challenging without any tree cover but we made it work and I think we ended up with some beautiful light.

A mini session, if you are not sure, if an abbreviated photo session that is shorter in duration and clients receive fewer files.  They cost less than a regular session.  Mini sessions are not something I do very often.  If you are interested in a mini session, follow my Facebook (www.facebook.com/bafphotographyfanpage) or Google+ (https://plus.google.com/+bafphotographyBelmont/posts) pages.  That is where I usually announce any specials.
