I am beyond thrilled to write today’s blog about this beautiful family and maternity session I recently photographed! When I first met this family, it was just Siena, Hiei and Kuma (mom, dad, and their adorable dog) to photograph their first pregnancy! During their first pregnancy, we scheduled our session at Princeton University - one of my favorite spots in the area for photos. Take a look at this blog HERE to read more about the best spots for photos at Princeton University. Shortly after, I photographed their baby boy, Myko, and have photographed them several times since! It’s been so great to establish a relationship with this family 🤍 A few months back, Siena reached out once again and wanted to schedule another shoot - and this time, to schedule another maternity session! I was beyond thrilled to hear the news, and honored that this family keeps welcoming me back into their life.

With this second maternity shoot for this family, we decided to visit Princeton University once again. They were looking to photograph some of the same locations as last time, such as Clio/Whig Hall and the arches, but also some new spots! It was such a full circle moment photographing another maternity shoot with this family, in the same spot, with their almost two year old!

Myko, their almost two year old son, was a PRO at photos! I seriously had SO much fun with him! This was our fourth shoot capturing Myko, so he’s almost a pro at this point ;) He came prepared with the best energy, the sweetest smiles, and his running shoes on for sure! We were able to capture such sweet and wholesome family shots with Myko, individuals of Myko (including running shots, of course), and some intimate shots of Myko holding/kissing his baby sibling in mommy’s belly! 

Looking back at our first session in 2022 for this family’s first pregnancy, it’s so sweet to compare those photos to now!

Without further ado, take a look at all of the wonderful memories we were able to capture below. 

To Siena, Hiei, Kuma, Myko and their soon to be baby, thank you for trusting me throughout the past few years to photograph your growing family 🤍 I am so excited to photograph baby once they arrive into the world, and I cannot wait to see how great of a big brother Myko will be!
