Austin Maternity Photography : Human Race

Upon arriving at this maternity photo session location, I learned this gorgeous mama had just received word from her doctor earlier in the day she was 3cm dilated.

As you can imagine, the delivery of the exciting news – albeit unexpected – coupled with the thrill of big brother’s recent 2nd birthday celebration had us all on a high. In the appropriate sense, I came with balloons which for the first time in history of Ziem Photography flew away just after a few frames. But before a single tear or meltdown would ensue, I pulled out my back-ups (a magical bubble gun and lots of nursery rhymes) which resulted in this set of maternity portraits.

When G had enough of my “stylish vocals”, we called it a day and I let out a huge sigh of relief that the session did not extend beyond maternity and into birthing.

It was a great pleasure working with this family again. I’m so excited to share that their 2nd child is finally here, happy, healthy and handsome as can be. Ending with one of my favorites from last year:
