This mama contacted me in late November at 22 weeks pregnant looking for maternity pictures and newborn pictures when her identical twin girls are born. Her belly is growing fast so she wanted to have them done pretty soon! With the frigid winter weather, we decided to their pictures in their home in Morris County New Jersey so we could stay warm and include their chocolate lab, Brice. The nursery is still a work in progress, but we wanted to capture that because that’s life when you’re pregnant and busy! It was a great way for me to see their home before their in-home lifestyle newborn photography session in April when their babies arrive. We also took a quick trip to a local park where they just build a beautiful bridge. I love the way her shawl matches the stone work on the bridge. They are just the cutest couple and I am so excited for when their girls arrive, but I hope they take their time and grow inside their mama! Enjoy this laid back, cozy , in-home maternity session.

Me- "Raina, what do you think the baby is going to be, a boy or girl?"
Raina- replies shyly- "I don't know"
Jenn- "What is your other answer?"
Raina- "It doesn't matter, as long as it's healthy"
*And I melted*
I was so happy when Jenn emailed me asking me to do their maternity and newborn pictures. Keith has been working with my husband for a number of years and when we were pregnant with our little girl, they invited us over to their home to talk about "crunchy" parenting and parenting in general. Jenn taught me about cloth diapering and slings, among other things. I could tell at the time they were both feeling nostalgic and ready for another little one. Fast forward almost a year later and they are soon to be parents again! We decided on Holmdel Park for their shoot, which also happens to be where they had their wedding photos done. Sweet Raina was my little assistant choosing the spots to photograph and helping me pose her mom and dad. She is going to be the best big sister.
