I had the pleasure of photographing the Guiney family over the summer when they had just found out they were expecting. So you can imagine my excitement to photograph their maternity/family photography session a few months later!
Kevin contacted me before Christmas asking for a gift card that he could give to his wife, Rebekah, as a very special Christmas gift. It was so much fun to take my normal gift card and add a little holiday touch. Check it out here: https://kelliannejordan.com/2019/11/24/new-gift-cards/
For their maternity session they chose to go to Tumalo State Park where they have enjoyed family dates together. It’s a special place in their hearts which made it perfect for their portrait session!
I always suggest taking photos at a place that is meaningful to you. When you hang your prints on your walls, it’s so amazing to see the scenery that brings back all the memories you’ve enjoyed at that special place. I can only hope that looking at these pictures brings back all the family memories that they have created over the last few years.
When it finally came time for their session, it started snowing. And not the pretty snow that is beautiful for photos, but that slick rain/snow stuff that isn’t pretty and just ruins your hair. So we made a plan to reschedule and it totally worked out. Just a few days later is was sunny and 60 degrees out which gave us this Spring look that completely matched Rebekah’s floral dress.
I just love the sunny glow that created the dreamy look. While we focused on the maternity portraits, I also wanted to make sure we captured all the family photos they were looking for too. In just 45 minutes we stopped time and gave them plenty of joyous and fun memories of this special time in their lives!
To the Guiney Family,
You guys are so much fun to photograph. Thank you so much trusting me with these memories. I can’t wait to meet your little one!
