Shannon & Brian Pezzolla have already given birth to Chiara (Key-ah-ra) Mae Pezzolla. In fact.. she just turned 1 month old this past week! I seriously cannot believe it. And I'm sure the proud parents are trying to wrap their minds around it as well. And while I have already shot some adorable newborn photos of little miss Chiara.. I want to share Shannon's maternity shoot first. Because that's the way it happened. Obviously.
This is actually part 1 of 2. We decided to just shoot Shannon by herself at home for a little bit. Going for something easy.. very lifestyle, comfy and low maintenance.. but still have it be drop dead gorgeous. I think you'll agree with me when I say that these turned out to be exactly what we were going for!
Oh so much love went into shooting and working on these.. and really hope ya'll love them!
I love how this shoot started with a cool morning light.. and as the shoot progressed and we moved into a different area of the house.. the photos warmed up. It is such a pretty transition! Anyway.. I don't know what more I could say to convey to you all just how proud I am of these photos. As I've heard other photographers say.. I have yet to take my favorite photo. But the more I shoot, the more I find myself warming up to the idea that all of my hard work and dedication might be paying off. I am definitely my biggest critic but I am happy to report that these pictures make that critical part of me take a step back and think "hmm.. well, I definitely don't hate this!" :)
Anyway.. enough about me. Shannon & Brian... you have a 1 month old baby girl!! How insanely awesome is that?!! These last few months have flown by and I hope that this little blog post helps things slow down for just a moment. Can't wait to show off the rest of your maternity shoot and then of course, the photos of your pride and joy.. Chiara. Until then, enjoy every tiny little moment of parenthood and steal every tiny little moment of sleep that you can. And God bless your Amazonian family! xo
