It was a humid rainy morning as I headed to Matheson Hammock Park for this maternity session. I had just photographed at wedding the day before and waking up at 5:30 am was really, really tough. But once again, Starbucks saved the day. I drove knowing it was about to rain but hoping it would blow over soon. It rained during the session and we hid. About five minutes later we had the sun… beautiful golden sun.
Susy is expecting her first baby this month, Lucas. Photographing her was a photographer’s dream. She worked the camera from every angle so effortlessly. The one thing that was so effortless was my Spanish. You would think that since I was raised in a Spanish-speaking household I would know at least the posing lingo well. I don’t, and I need to practice. Since Susy only speaks Spanish, the following words are just for her and my Spanish-speaking readers:
Ser mama por primera vez es un encanto. Experimentar por nosotras mismas lo que es llevar un bebe adentro no tiene palabras que puedan describir el intenso amor que uno siente aun antes de conocer a nuestro bebe. Mientras estaba retratando a Susy solo pensaba en la manera que ella tiernamente se abrazaba su pancita… pequeñas muestras de amor que le damos a nuestros bebes durante este tiempo que deseamos tenerlo en brazos. Ya pronto llegara el día de conocer a Lucas y estoy segura que nada hara a Susy mas feliz. Ni el arroz con frijoles que tanto le gusta como dicen las chicas. Susy, te veías como una radiante mama. Disfruta tus últimos días del embarazo que son de mucho extrañar.
I might of totally killed it once again, but we will let my mother read it and have the pleasure of correcting my spelling and grammar. Motherhood looks great on Susy and I cannot wait to meet little Lucas. Here are a few of my favorites from our morning together at Matheson Hammock Park.
*Special thanks to Massiel for coordinating everything for us. 🙂 I hope you all have a wonderful week and stay tuned for tomorrow’s #twintuesday!
