Thanks to this sweet expectant couple, I crossed a big one off of my photographer’s bucket list in January: a snowy, outdoor lifestyle maternity session!

Mom- and Dad-to-be braved the cold and met me for the “Bump” part of their “Bump-to-Baby” package at the DeWint House in Tappan, NY, a gorgeous historic home that served as a beautiful backdrop for this wintry session.

Mom looked absolutely radiant in a rich, deep shade of burgundy that really popped against the white of the snow, and Dad was cracking jokes left and right that kept all of us laughing and not thinking too much about how chilly we were.

They brought some special mementoes along for the shoot, and to cap it all off, we celebrated with some hot cocoa.

This was such a delightful session from start to finish. The photos really capture the love between this couple and all of the joy and hope that comes with expecting your first baby.

Mama-to-be was smiling ear to ear the whole session, often because of the jokes Dad-to-be was making in the background.

Some special props the couple brought along for their shoot! Adding these personal touches makes the photos that much more meaningful later on.

I couldn’t resist taking this picture of Dad-to-be making this silly face – it makes me smile every time I see it.

As the session was winding down, we spread a blanket out to prepare for some hot cocoa. I love this look of love we caught between these two!
