It was at Maymont and it’s kind of just the start of us getting back into shooting so really excited about that.
It felt so good to be able to go back out and be with couples. Weird that we couldn’t run up and hug them. But it was nice to be able to go do what we love.
It was a Maymont. It was a maternity session which is kind of fun being that we’re also new parents. That we know this excitement and this process and what they’re going through right now.
Maymont Maternity Session – Expert Parents
I gotta say they asked us for some advice, or some things that surprised us as new parents. It was really fun, that was kinda the first time that we talked through and been the… experts? Mentors?
Notice the hesitation in our voices as we say that. We are by no means experts at this parenting thing. Niles is 6 months now. But it is really fun to kind of walk through with somebody who is going through what we just went through. So that was fun.
Maymont Maternity Session – Overcast Day
It was a great day too. It wasn’t too hot, I know summer temperatures are picking up now. The light was a little overcast which was great because we can shoot at specific places in Maymont that we love that are a little harder to shoot in sun.
We usually have to kind of work around where the shade is. Maymont has so many beautiful places like the rose garden, the pillars right there are so pretty. But the shadows are always so harsh that we can hardly ever really shoot there. So it was really nice that we had this overcast day where we could shoot places that we don’t normally get to.
Maymont right now is closing it 7pm. You’ve heard us talk a lot about how what we like about the golden hour. Right before sunset, that’s the best time take photo. So that was the start of that.
We would have been starting at 7pm if we had our ideal times. But it actually worked really well with this overcast day.
Maymont Maternity Session – Taralyn & Derek
Taralyn and Derek are also friends of a past bride and groom of ours. Taralyn was actually one of her bridesmaids. So when we posted that we were headed out to this session. Mary, our past bride, messaged and was like “oh my gosh they’re gonna be so great. You will have so much fun.” And she was so right. They are such a sweet couple. We are so excited for them to be parents soon.
I hope you enjoy some of our favorites from this session!
