It’s a really nice feeling, as a photographer, to photograph a couple’s engagements photos and then be asked to photograph their maternity photographs as well.
Baby Lucca is now here, but before he entered the world I met the couple at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania where the engagement photographs were made as well.
We worked our way around the grounds for some scenic photographs. Then we went indoors and I found a spot perfect for the photograph you see here, which was also the last photograph of the day.
It’s always good to save the extreme closeup photographs until the end because at that point people are tired of posing.
So while the couple looks happy about having a baby (which they totally were of course), they were also happy that the day was done and they could go home to relax.
Those hands were filled with love for their new baby, who is now here and is extremely cute with a full head of hair.
