Sweet and Simple In Home Family Session | Menlo Park Maternity Photographer

I have a friend who's a doula, Lauren Noble, that refers clients to me every once in a while. When she referred the W family and I spoke with Marjorie during our pre-session consult, I knew it was going to be a great session. The family is expecting a baby girl (right around now, actually!) and wanted to document their family of 3 before she makes her debut. I love when families see the value in photographing their lives at a particular moment in time. Especially when a new baby is involved, things change so drastically and you can forget what it was like when there were only three of you.

In our consult we discussed what their favorite things to do together were. Playing in the backyard, cooking together, and reading were discussed. We started our session in the backyard, playing ball, running around, and playing. It was important to Dorian to document Marjorie's baby belly as well as get them together as a family so I made sure to do a few natural, candids of them all together. 

Cooking together is a big joy in their lives so we headed into the kitchen and put together some snacks to munch on before heading into the bedroom for reading time. They decided on a book Lauren gave them about a kiddo who has a sibling on the way (timely, right?). After some snuggles and rolling about on the bed, we wrapped up the session. I loved how relaxed this family was and I can not wait to photograph them with their baby girl!
