Greetings, wonderful readers! Join me as we dive into the details of Courtney and Charles’s family maternity session, capturing the essence of love, laughter, and a touch of elegance.
As a seasoned family photographer, I had the pleasure of working with Courtney, Charles, and their adorable son Cayden (1 1/2 – view his Belly to Baby sessions here) in my studio in Greenwich Connecticut to create a maternity session that beautifully encapsulated the uniqueness of their family dynamic.
From the beginning, Courtney expressed her desire for a blend of formal portraits and candid shots. The session was designed to include moments of intimacy, playfulness, and a touch of elegance to reflect their clean-cut style and modern farmhouse decor.
Courtney had specific requests for the grouping and poses, including individual shots of her, family photos with Charles and Cayden, and a few artistic shots – a nod to a previous session.
Describing their family home style in Shelton Connecticut as a fusion of farmhouse, modern, and industrial, the Hulsizers bring a unique blend of edgy and clean-cut elements to their living spaces and personal fashion choices. Courtney, with her edgier personal style, effortlessly complements the family’s overall modern aesthetic.
For the session, the family chose attire that resonated with their individual styles, with Courtney’s dress serving as the focal point around which Charles and Cayden coordinated. The resulting ensemble echoed their commitment to teamwork and supporting each other.
Cayden, a lively toddler (check out his cake smash session, here!), brought an extra layer of excitement to the session. His infectious laughter is brought about by counting, clapping, peek-a-boo, and his favorite songs, including tunes from JLO, Daddy Yankee, and Lady Gaga.
As the session unfolded, we captured candid moments of Cayden’s laughter, his interactions with his parents, and his favorite games. These genuine moments of joy added a touch of playfulness to the gallery, showcasing the heartwarming connection within the family.
The Hulsizer family values of having fun, being honest, and fostering a loving and respectful environment were evident throughout the session!
As we wrapped up the family maternity session, the Hulsizers expressed their excitement for the upcoming addition and their openness to the creative process, trusting that the images captured would be cherished memories for years to come.
In essence, the Hulsizers’ maternity session was a celebration of family, elegance, and the anticipation of a new beginning. It was a pleasure to work with this beautiful family again, and I look forward to capturing more precious moments as they continue to grow.
