Maternity Session for Gorgeous Mama of (soon-to-be) Four | Painesville, OH

October 15, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

When I first met this gorgeous mama and her family, they had just welcomed their third daughter into the world. I arrived at their home and was met at the door by two bubbly, blond-haired, blue-eyed little beauties who were excited for me to arrive, even though I hadn't met them before. I immediately felt comfortable and welcomed by the whole family, as though I was visiting friends. You would think that a mom of a preschooler, toddler, and a brand new baby would be a more than a little tired, unorganized, and flustered at the thought of planning to have someone come in her home, just a week after her baby was born, to do newborn and family photos. I have three children and I KNOW I was that mom after my youngest was born. I'm actually STILL that mom! But not this mom. The whole family looked adorable and picture ready. I was impressed with how comfortable she was when she assisted me in posing her sweet newborn, most moms aren't...even experienced moms. I remember thinking wow, she would be a fantastic assistant. And she looked flawless. Not just "fantastic for just having a baby" good, gorgeous and super photogenic good.

Not too long after I photographed Megan's new baby and family, I knew I was in need of someone to help me out as my business was growing more rapidly than I could keep up with while balancing my family's needs. In my head, I was imagining someone who was smart, organized, helpful, a fast learner, and cool-headed with loads of patience (to deal with me) and great customer service skills. Someone who knew their way around the internet, social media, blogging, and technology would be amazing. Also, I was envisioning someone who was possibly a stay-at-home mom, who left a corporate career to be home with her babies like I had, but was looking to still contribute to the family's income and also enjoyed having something, outside of her family, to exercise her skills. Someone with initiative. A self-starter like me.  So, yeah, I had just a tiny wish list of traits I was hoping too find, right?  ;)

I posted on my facebook page that I was looking for an assistant and got several inquiries.  When I saw Megan's reply in my inbox I might have done a little happy dance in my kitchen. She fit the above description exactly! She had worked for 10 years in IT and left her corporate job to stay home with her children. She was also a small business owner herself and a blogger. (See her fabulous blog here: www.ahhmazingreviews.com) While working with her on her daughter's newborn session, I had witnessed her incredible personality, organization skills, and patience.  Eek!  My prayers were answered!

Fast-forward two years, and today Megan is texting and emailing me updates and keeping me on track all while awaiting the arrival of baby girl number four any day. She is as fantastic as ever and I am so happy we crossed paths.  I can't wait to photograph her new baby and do another family photograph, in which she will of course look flawless. Kinda like she does here in her maternity session.

I love the sun pouring through the trees and falling on her baby bump!
