Family Photos…

 In Fashion

Happy Monday! Long time no writes. I’m so sorry that I haven’t been as present on the blog as I once was. Turns out- being pregnant, chasing a toddler, working full time and prepping to add a 4th person to the Gow family has been quite time consuming! I’ve also been having a hard time justifying the price point of a new maternity look on a regular basis. Thank goodness for sweet girlfriends who are happy to let you borrow their maternity clothes so you have to buy even less during your pregnancy!

I’m 26 weeks today and time seems to be flying and creeping along all at the same time. We can’t wait to meet this sweet baby girl in early February! Since we will do a full family photo shoot in February once baby girl gets here- We decided to just do a mini session and have some family photos taken for our holiday card along with some 2 year portraits of Harrison. Dave isn’t too keen on family photos- they can be super stressful with a kiddo! I talked him in to doing a mini session with a photographer that lives in our neighborhood and came highly recommended by several of our friends that have children. We were so happy to work with Elise of Elise Welker Photography. She and I communicated extensively before the shoot, particularly around location and outfit choices. I hadn’t thought too much about what we were all going to wear before talking with her. I’m so glad that we came up with a plan together because the color of our outfits worked perfectly with the location (we were at Midlothian Mines Park). Funny as it sounds- I don’t have a hard time coordinating my own outfits, but when it comes to making sure three people’s outfits work well- I’m not so good! Elise was a huge help and made great suggestions so that the three of us were coordinating and matching to season/backdrop. Aside from the beautiful work that Elise produced, I can’t tell you how low stress these photos were for us. She was WONDERFUL with Harrison and he was happy and smiley the entire session. We even had a few extra minutes at the end for Elise to take some photos of just Dave and me (I can’t remember the last time that happened!). If you live in Richmond or the surrounding area, I would highly recommend Elise! Click here for a direct link to her site where you can see available packages and prices.
