Question: What prompted you to capture your pregnancy with a photo shoot? How did it make you feel?
Answer: We never really thought to do it with our first. we decided to have one more baby and we wanted to celebrate our last. It was very exciting!
Question: How far along in your pregnancy were you when you did the shoot?
Answer: 38 weeks. We were ready to have him.
Question: How and why did you choose the setting of your maternity photoshoot?
Answer: We never in a million years ever dreamed we would live in Hawaii, so a beautiful beach just made
Question: Did you include other family members in your photoshoot, why or why not?
Answer: Yes- our first, Zachary. He is the light of our world and his excitement for everything is raw. Just him being there lifted our spirits.
Question: Do you know the gender of your baby (babies)? If so, did you incorporate this into the shoot?
Answer: We did and no. While we call the baby by assigned gender at birth, emphasizing it before he was born seemed strange.
Question: What was your favorite picture from the day, and why?
Answer: Where we are walking as a family down the beach. We were able to take the view in and you almost forgot someone was there. It was incredible!
