Winter is a season of cold, frigid, and sometimes downright unbearable temperatures. Snuggling up inside by a warm fire with a cozy blanket and a good read may sound like the ideal way to spend a snow day, but to Shanthi and Jay, a snow filled winter oasis was the perfect setting to capture priceless portraits of the end of their journey as a couple and the beginning of their journey into parenthood.
Shanthi and Jay are awaiting the arrival of their first child, due at the end of January. Not knowing whether or not their new bundle of joy will be a boy or a girl is just increasing the anticipation of the baby's arrival.
We recently braved the snow to capture some fun maternity portraits for them and all four of us (well six I guess if you count the baby and Sammy, the dog that rules the home) had the times of our lives.
Between the dress up and the snowball fights, sometimes it can be hard to remember this is our job! We loved every second of our session with them and are so looking forward to being able to capture more portraits as their family grows.
Shanthi and Jay are so sweet and down to earth and were totally up for anything when it came to our session. We took some sweet photos inside, as we all needed some reprieve from the cold, but we had the absolute best time outdoors playing in the snow. We loved feeling like kids again, embracing winter and all the wonders that come with it.
All of us can't wait to see whether Shanthi and Jay end up having a boy or girl when we catch up with them at their newborn portrait session. Their precious baby is in for a real treat with them as parents, and Sammy as the family dog, their friend, and their playmate.
Next winter, they'll have the privilege of a new family member joining in on the fun, and they'll really get to see winter through the eyes of a child- the mystery, the excitement, and all the endless fun.
