In Stages: Amy

It's hard to believe it's been nearly a year since I first met beautiful Amy and her sweet-beau Doug. In the winter of 2012, Amy's good friend Amanda (who also happens to be a classmate of mine from high school... go Vikings!) asked me if I'd like to photograph her best, best friend Amy during the stages of pregnancy. Amanda had seen the work I had done with my niece Alicia, and LOVED the idea of a pregnancy being documented during it's various stages. I leapt on the chance to photograph Amy. I had been knocking around the idea of offering a pregnancy-stages photo package, and photographing a non-relative was the perfect opportunity to see if it was something I'd like to offer.So, we set up a plan. I would photograph her during the three seasons of her pregnancy: spring, summer and autumn. And, as it turned out, we also ended up scheduling the sessions at the three large colleges/universities in Fargo-Moorhead: Concordia, MSUM and NDSU. A trifecta of awesomeness.

It was so much fun to get to know Amy and Doug and to finally meet their wee baby Vincent in November.  What a beautiful little family.

Oh, and for those wondering if a similar maternity package is in the works, I'll just say maybe, leaning to yes. I'd love to hear what you think - leave any feedback you may have in the comments or send me an email at info at brittathephotographer dot com
