I love it when my clients are adventurous! I have been documenting Caras journey to twins for a while now (how has it been 25 weeks already?!?!) and a loooong time ago we had planned her maternity session for late January.
I know Cara pretty well and know that she falls on the more adventurous side, so when I suggested we get a long flowy maternity gown and head out to Red Rock canyon, she was all IN!
Due to the way the canyon is situated, we had to go early in the morning for the best light. That meant we were up and at 'em at around 7am. In January! Luckily we live in a relatively warm place so it wasn't freezing FREEZING, but it was still cold. I think somewhere in the 40's. We brought blankets and robes to keep this pretty mamma in between shots.
Her hubby and my hubby were there as assistants and I got a shot of them holding their bellies too! Ha! They were very helpful carrying stools and ladders and Caras husband was a fantastic material tosser!
Cara was such a trooper and I really think we created some magical images!
Later that day we got together with her two little girls (Yes, she is soon to have FOUR kiddos!) and did some maternity shots with the whole family. I love that we have been able to commemorate this incredibly special time in this growing families life!
