This gorgeous expectant mama, with baby number four on board, and her family met me at Fairmount Park in Riverside for her maternity photography session. (I do all of my maternity sessions at outdoor locations using natural light. A small copse of trees or spurts of wildflowers can be transformed into a gorgeous image, with a pregnant mama and my photographer's eye. I love finding new locations to use with my expectant mamas and families!) She chose a lovely ruby colored gown to use during her session and totally rocked it. Don't you think?
I met this mama and her middle son last year when I photographed the annual calendar for Childhood Cancer Foundation of Southern California. CCF shared the adorable calendar images here. Many of you may not know this, but this mama and I have something in common. Our little boys were both diagnosed with a form of childhood cancer. Her son, Nathan, is still fighting. Despite his struggles with childhood cancer he is just a boy. At our session (even during treatment) he was so happy...full of life and energy. All three of her boys, including little Nathan, were so full of personality. Her youngest son was not really interested in smiling for pictures, but he was more than happy to be talked into it by his parents. (I believe a $5 bill changed hands during the session. I love when parents are not above a little harmless coercion.)
I hope that her next little one, also a boy, will bring as much joy and craziness to their home.
