Grateful Heart Maternity Fort Mill, SC

You guys this momma was so excited about her pregnancy it was contagious. Her joy her grateful heart and attitude, are just such an inspiration. After being a boy mom for years, 3 boys to be exact, she is expecting a little girl. And she is capturing this special occasion with Maternity portraits for her room.

I am so grateful she chose Insley Photography to help her create such a special wall display for her home. Her maternity portrait and baby girl’s newborn portrait will make a great before and after for the wall in her home. Personally I can’t wait to see how it will all turn out. Of course now we just have to wait patiently for her little one to arrive.

New Baby Boy

Baby J’s mom contacted me in response to a maternity model call. You may notice these are new baby photographs and not maternity ones. Poor mom sent me a message and not an hour later sent me a new one saying her doctor didn’t think she would make it to a photoshoot. Her doctor was right Sweet Baby Boy J was born the next day! 

Babies have a mind of their own even before they are born. If you are thinking about having maternity portraits created or maybe you know you should document your pregnancy in some way please, please, please don’t delay call me today and lets get you reserved on my calendar. And don’t forget to ask about your free belly cast as well.

Ok enough jabbering about maternity photos and let’s talk about this sweet new baby. Isn’t he just precious? He loved being swaddled, he was happy to be in his birthday suit and he had no problem being moved to the bowl either. Saying he was chill little man would be an understatement. 

And what about the wall collection I created for them? Don’t you just love it? That’s not their home of course. But I can create and show artwork on the walls in your home. Thanks to some pretty fancy software I can create mockups of your sweet new baby’s artwork on the walls in your home true to size. This makes your decision making process so much easier. No more trying to visualize what a canvas or framed portrait will look like in your living room. I can show you exactly how it will look. isn’t that amazing?

Dreamy Maternity Portraits in Studio

Dreamy Maternity

Momma E came in to model this cream dress for our studio look book. The dress photographed like a dream. Momma E wore it well. Don’t you all think she looks amazing? I love how it shows off her baby bump but is not too revealing. Leave her some love in the comments on these dreamy maternity portraits!

Some moms to be don’t want to show a lot of skin and this is a great way to celebrate your pregnancy without feeling exposed. Adding on a wrap or shawl could give you even more coverage if desired. This dress would also make a great post delivery momma and baby portrait.

Hopefully we can try it out when this little guy arrives this summer. Your family can’t wait to meet you little one! I look forward to meeting you when you visit the studio for your newborn portrait session. Thanks again Momma E for coming in and modeling my dresses I really appreciate it.

Nina’s nine months baby portraits

Nina's nine months old baby girl pearls

Oh Miss Nina how fast you are growing and changing. Nine months is such a fun age. Everyone is your friend at this age and getting your sweet smiles out are so effortless. Thanks for that sweet girl. Everything at nine months is a new fun toy to explore, even when it’s just a headband or a coin box or a hair bow! The hard part of a portrait session at this age is keeping myself from taking too many photographs. Moms are always like I want them all. Which I love, and really look at all this cuteness. Who wouldn’t want them all? Sweet Miss Nina’s baby book is gonna be bursting at the seams. This little lady is number four for her momma and I know they all have baby books. Her momma is a rock star. I strive to be more organized every time I see her with the kids! Any who thanks for bringing me all your babies, I appreciate it. I look forward to watching them grow into adults and conquering their dreams! 

If your baby is growing and changing don’t let this time pass you by! Call today to schedule a portrait session. 704-313-5125

Sweet Little Lillian came to see me in my studio recently. I met her parents and big brother at our Christmas Card Mini Session back in the fall. This baby girl has such a sweet family.

Look at those sweet baby cheeks and her perfect little nose. Baby Girl Lillian was so much fun to photograph because she was so laid back. Aww man what a treat she was to have in my home portrait studio. I can’t wait to watch her grow up. I’m looking forward to getting her and her big brother in my studio together. Congratulations again to her mom and dad!



 

Pregnancy portraits to Treasure

Pregnancy portraits to Treasure

How have I not blogged this session already. Man I am behind, but today the boys are at summer camp and I’m playing catch up. This beautiful family came to see me while they were waiting for their darling baby girl to arrive. Mom had a few ideas for the baby announcement and dear son had a few ideas of his own so we went with it. What you cannot see in these images are the basketballs and fire trucks he wanted in every photograph. Sweet toddlers are very determined when it comes to sports they love and super heroes they idealize.

Back to the portraits

This sweet family came prepared for an outdoor and indoor sessions the studio and even brought the awesome fire truck. The fire truck was so cool with a working bell and everything. I will not lie I kind of wanted to keep it ;) But my favorite images are the ones I think they will forever treasure. The intimate black and whites portraits that capture that connection between mom and son are just beautiful. The portrait that shows the family waiting and preparing for a new addition are heartwarming. Those are the images that make my heart sing. These pregnancy portraits are the ones that the kids will look at as teenagers and think my mom and dad wanted me so badly you can see it here. My parents love me more than life itself. The beauty of a family waiting for baby gosh I tell you I love this job!
