I found Bridgette through an open model call on Facebook. I was seeking out a model for a maternity session. Occasionally I will do giveaways to expand my portfolio and experiment with a different editing style or program. Thank you so much to Bridgette for helping me out and congratulations on your baby boy.
My original plan for this session was to have Bridgette wade in the water. With all this crazy rain the water was too deep. Usually it is ankle deep but when I stepped in to test I fell immediately to my thigh. Mom was quite a bit more petite than I am, so we kept her on the bank. Genuine smiles are the best, and though I don't know what he was doing behind me, Bridgette's brother got one out of her.
I did a maternity session a few days ago and I found it hilarious that that MomToBe was wearing the exact same nail polish as Bridgette.
I love maternity images. To me there is nothing more beautiful than a pregnant mom. Speaking from personal experience, you don't remember much about your pregnancy. I also know I didn't feel beautiful during mine because the changes to my body were overwhelming. In hindsight, I love having my pregnancy images to remember this very special time. It goes so quickly, and it is such a precious time. This is Mom's first opportunity to bond with her baby.
I really enjoyed meeting Bridgette and I appreciate her willingness to help me out. Congratulations!
