I had the pleasure of shooting my sister-in-laws pregnancy photos at their country house the other week and here are some of the results! I was seeking for a natural, earthy yet whimsical feeling to the pictures, so I played around with the sunlight and shadows for moments of over exposure. We were hoping for the cherry trees to be in full bloom, but there was no hope in that department! I’ve never done a pregnancy shoot before, but it was so much fun. There is something amazing about that bump, knowing there is a little one growing inside, tucked away, close to mom. The feeling is soft, gentle and almost magical, just like my tiny nephew inside of her. She looks stunning, a nordic meadow fairy surrounded with wind flowers that are a traditional Mothers day flower here in Finland. I can’t wait to meet the little bundle of joy. Motherhood is a gift and there are exciting times ahead.
