I used to get so nervous whenever I had a maternity session booked. I’m not sure why, but I would get sweaty and chatty and start spewing lame jokes whenever it came time to pose the parents to be. After a while, I realized that they’re just as or even more nervous than me and their reasons for being nervous were obviously more valid than my own.
I now have my nerves in check(most days) and I do my best to make my clients comfortable in front of my camera. When working with soon to be parents, I talk through direction, I have the future mom and dad talk to one another about each other and their new baby, the nervousness fades and the smiles are sweet.
Full disclosure, Amanda is a good friend, so working with her was pretty easy. She’s one of the funniest women I have ever met and she’s going to be an awesome mother. Her husband is adorable when he looks at his wife, his smiles are a definite sign of what a loving and proud dad he’s going to be. Oh babies.
Congratulations MacCormick family, I can’t wait to meet your new little guy!
