Avery booked her Belly & Baby Plan just after she was 12 weeks along. It was wonderful to be in contact with her throughout her pregnancy, as she learned the gender, through her baby shower and celebrations with her family, and she even got a chance to visit & help pick out props & colors for her maternity & newborn sessions.
Maternity Session – Avery
So when Avery arrived for her maternity session, I felt like I already really knew her well, and we were very comfortable & relaxed working together. It was great!
Avery’s maternity session was absolutely beautiful. She is a gorgeous woman inside & out. And I know that she is making a great Mommy to her sweet Zoey, whom she was SOOO excited to meet!
Newborn Session – Zoey
Zoey was a little angel baby during her newborn session. She took a lot of snack breaks during her newborn modeling gig, but that’s okay, she’s got to keep up her figure.
Zoey loved to be on her belly & slept the best there, whenever we flipped her on her back, she would squirm & wake up. This usually indicates some mild gas or re-flux issues, which is not uncommon for newborn babies. Sometimes, however, a baby that exhibits these signs & symptoms at their newborn session, will develop colic or be diagnosed with a milk sensitivity later on.
In the effort to keep Zoey content, we did many different outfits & setups with her in this tummy pose. It is always so interesting figuring out what works best for each baby. They are all so very different & unique – and sometimes Mom & Dad will learn something new about their baby as well!
