This cute maternity session was one of my last sessions in Seattle before my little family moved to Dallas, and I’m so glad I could squeeze it in! Alex and Shannon were the cutest parents-to-be! They were so sweet together, and I loved that they were always laughing. It was so fun to get to know them and learn about their love story. They both grew up in the Seattle area, dated through high school, moved to San Diego where they got married, then decided to move home. After they moved back to Washington, they bought their first home, and now they are renovating it together. In the middle of all of that, Alex and Shannon found out they were pregnant!
Shannon is a labor and delivery nurse, so even though this was their first child, this was definitely not Shannon’s first birth experience! Since she had been a part of so many deliveries, she had a few ideas about how she wanted her first experience to go! How lucky is that? Mamas, don’t you agree? Wouldn’t it be so nice to have just a few hints about what to expect during labor and delivery before you even had your first child? Not to mention a few hints for what to do after you brought him or her home from the hospital. One of the biggest decisions Alex and Shannon had made about the birth of their baby was to keep the gender a surprise. Shannon said waiting for the birth to find out the gender of the baby always made the delivery so much more emotional and special. So even though Shannon was 33 weeks pregnant, they had no idea if they would be bringing home a baby boy or a baby girl in a few short weeks. I love how much excitement that added to this sweet session!
I also love helping my clients find ways to make photography sessions more comfortable and less stressful, so I always recommend splurging a bit for a professional hair and makeup artist. Shannon had her makeup done professionally, and even though it was the middle of July, her makeup was flawless throughout the entire evening! Since we moved to Dallas before their baby was born, I never actually found out if they had a boy or a girl, but I’m sure their baby is absolutely gorgeous since Alex and Shannon both look like models 😉 I definitely miss the mountains, but I also have loved being a maternity photographer in Dallas. Texas is beautiful in it’s own way!
