Jen & Dan’s Sweet & Cozy Maternity Session

There is something so special about photographs that capture the special connection and true love between two people. Kristy Ahumada of Volatile Photography has done that so flawlessly with this expecting session with Jen and Dan in Santa Rosa, CA. Often maternity sessions focus on the special mother-child connection, but with Dad and even beloved pets here, the couch and kitchen table, these show you the whole picture and context. This is already a family.

I have such warm fuzzies as I view these images! These moments feel so true, comfortable, and natural. Effortless. So love that we get to see mom Jen not just in that beautiful blue dress, but also lounging super casual at breakfast with her striped socks. I could immediately relate to this whole scene, and love that it feels like we are peeking into their real life (and at five months pregnant myself, I guarantee you I am usually rocking the loungewear). Kristy has captured more than just an expectant mom. She’s captured the feeling of warmth and real family.

    Thank you everyone! This is probably my favorite of the expecting photos I’ve taken so far. They named their little baby boy Reece = )
