heidi & michael… preparing for baby!

My trip to Virginia was a bit of a whirlwind… First I photographed Baby Cate, bright and early at 8:00am! Then I was off to Finley’s house for her session.  After a leisurely afternoon, Yancey dropped me off at the AmTrak station, where I experienced my first train ride to Alexandria. Heidi and Michael picked me up, and we spent the rest of the evening getting to know one another and planning for our session the following morning.

Heidi and Michael are an amazing couple. It was so fun to watch them together! I can’t wait to meet their baby in June :)

We started off the session getting a little bit of work done. Itty bitty baby clothes are so much fun to fold!

Heidi and Michael are planning an all natural homebirth… How cute is this little onesie?!

After the laundry was put away… it was time to do a little reading. Heidi is at the 34 week mark, and she and Michael plan to do a good bit of ready to Baby in the next 6 weeks.

I LOVE the book that they chose…

I LOVE this bedroom… I’m so excited about shooting in here again when Baby arrives :)

Love this one…

Every night, Michael talks to Baby… I am so proud of him for not being embarrassed to let me photograph him talking to Baby :) I love the tenderness in the resulting images.

Like most modern couples… Heidi and Michael spend quite a bit of time on their computers… we had to capture that reality :)

I LOVED finding out that both Heidi and Michael love to read… I’m always on the lookout for something new and exciting to read, and now I have two new people to pester for recommendations :) How cute are they in their matching recliners?

A bit of snuggling on the couch…

I love it when snuggling dissolves into giggles :)

Heidi and Michael… I cannot wait to meet Baby :) Hurry up, already, will you?! Until then, enjoy your slideshow!
