EAGLE ROCK, CALIFORNIA
Sam was due any day with her second child, a boy that is to be named Riot. She has never gotten her maternity photos done – for her first child and Riot-, and the clock was ticking to document her pregnancy journey. We had to do something quickly. When I mentioned that it might be a great idea to photograph her in her cozy Eagle Rock home as part of a lifestyle maternity session, she agreed!
We photographed Sam in a few settings throughout her home. The first setting is her lovely-lit bedroom that just gives gorgeous angelic light, and I love the intimate mood of these photos. The rest of her family joined in soon afterwards for a few interactive group photos, as the beginning of their welcome party for Riot.
I absolutely love these photos. For me, lifestyle photos taken in the home gives such an intimate slice-of-life feeling that can be cherished for years to come. If Sam’s family move to a different home, they’ll have these images to remember a period of their time where they lived their life then and there.
