Setting the Bar: A Maternity Shoot
The first time I met Meghan, she came bouncing out the front door of her Ukrainian Village home to bring me a parking pass before our session. She was as friendly and energetic as can be, and I had a feeling that our session was going to be a fun one. Uncool people don’t run out in the pouring rain after getting all dolled up for their maternity shoot to bring the photographer a parking pass. They just don’t.Meghan and Brian are the type of people you meet and instantly like. It’s a very unique and intangible trait, and they both have it, which totally explains how they found each other. It’s hard to explain, but I’ll try.Meghan is the go-with-the-flow, up-for-anything type of girl you need in a friend and want to be more like. Laughter comes easily and abundantly when you are around her, and her light hearted disposition makes all things a joyful occasion.Brian is charismatic and funny, which explains why laughter fills every crook, corner, and corridor of their home, and further illustrates how dynamic these two are as a couple. They are two of the happiest, nicest people you will ever meet.It was so fun to capture their story on camera. The affection and adoration they show towards one another makes for breathtaking images. They are so excited to become parents and meet little Baby Bar, and this genuine excitement translated perfectly in their photographs. Meghan has a beauty and gracefulness to her that extends beyond her physical appearance. It is a glow literally from the inside out. She is absolutely radiant. Though my time with the Bars was brief, I can tell that they will be parental pros. I have no doubt about it. The enthusiasm they have for life, the kindness they have for others, and the love they share is a recipe for the utmost success. This baby is one lucky little fella or doll (they aren’t finding out the gender, so exciting!) to be raised by such stellar human beings. I can’t wait to meet Baby Bar! Also, major shout out to big brother, Otis. I am sure Baby Bar is going to have many an adventure with Otis, and I think Otis is going to be quite enamored with his new partner in crime. Otis was such a good little guy during our shoot.
