What do you get when you have a maternity session on a farm? You get photographs with various animals, all of them almost as cute as this pony, a lot of laughs, and gorgeous scenery. This location is the epitome of serene. It was HOT, yes, but so beautiful and calm. We planned Emily and Kat’s LGBT Maternity Session for the end of September hoping that it would be a bit more tolerable outside for portraits. Someone forgot to remind us that we live in Alabama and we have become the state of approximately 6 month summers and 4 week falls. Nonetheless, we were able to create some memorable images to document such a unique time in their lives.
Emily and Kat love their animals and it was obvious that feeling was reciprocated, especially by the way that they surrounded us whenever we entered their field or fenced in area. (What’s that called? A coop? A pen? I’m no farmer.) The horses and pony nuzzled against them and as you can see from the photos, they didn’t mind me either. I literally documented between horses and was able to use the jaw and neck of one horse to frame an image. It was a challenge I hadn’t been presented with before in photography, but I long for new and interesting things to photograph. I got to pet them, which was an added bonus. I live for quirky/intriguing images too so the one of the duck made my day!
Their baby will be here very soon and I look forward to documenting their family of three shortly after his arrival. Be on the lookout for a family session.
