This past weekend temperatures dropped into the negatives with the windchill but my clients and I were nice and warm in their cozy apartment. These clients were super special because Bernadette is my cousin. Bernadette and her husband David are expecting their first child, a boy, in just a few weeks and I was so excited when they asked if I would photograph their maternity session.
Our session started in their sons room, a room fit for a small pilot/firefighter. An airplane mobile hung in the corner and vintage firetrucks and planes decorated the shelves. Bernadette and David met at their local firehouse - David and Bernadette are both volunteer firefighters in their free time. The firehouse is a huge part of their life together (#LoveAtTheFirehouse) so I knew that would be a theme during their session and we had already made plains to visit the firehouse for a few shots.
David also has a love for flying planes and is a pilot awaiting the arrival of his little co-pilot. Before our session I jokingly suggested that David be playing with matchbox planes on Bernadette's belly and when I got there I noticed little toy planes, so why not? I have to say, I absolutely love the photo below.
This session was so much fun, filled with planes, firetrucks and laughs! I can not wait to meet the newest addition to our family in the upcoming weeks!
