Shamim and Evan - In home maternity session

I had an opportunity to do more in home lifestyle session. Shamim and Evan have just recently moved in to their lovely home, so we thought why not do our maternity shoot there? They are in the process of organizing and still have a few items to unpack. I really appreciated the fact that they let me do such an intimate shoot in the the middle of it all. We’ve also included items with special meaning to them.

It just makes it so real. This is real life.

These two have the funniest conversations that even Shamim have admitted that if there is one thing they do well, it would be to TALK. It was a fun one! We just kept talking as if we were not taking pictures at all. I also have to mention, one of the rooms is comic-themed, it’s just so cool and her hair is blue!

An amazing henna artist created an intricate design of the names that have great importance to the couple. When Shamim shared the story behind the names, I immediately felt a connection with her, which is probably why I felt compelled to capture it as beautifully as I can, not only creatively but also ensuring the details of the design are shown clearly.
