Pope's Maternity Collection.
Since she was expecting twins I recommended that we schedule her maternity session before 30 weeks as we all know with two babies you show a lot faster and look almost full turn around 30 weeks. We chose a date in February with the location being at Pensacola Beach. It was a blessing we had the session when we did because that whole week leading up to the date was nothing but rain. The water was beautiful and to top it off was a beautiful family and Sarah was glowing.
Back in November of last year Sarah and Kortney reached out looking for a birth photographer. I was thrilled she contacted me when she did as I was just launching my rebrand and moving over to specialize in maternity and birth photography. Knowing that, Sarah put your faith in me still to capture the celebration of new life and welcoming their twins into the world. We scheduled a consultation to discuss what we wanted and talk a bit about her birth plan.
April 15th, was the day of Sarah’s cesarian. They checkin in about 5:30 am and I arrived shortly after to capture some of the preparations leading up to the arrival of the twins. I was informed that only the husband could be in the OR, so I thought the dad to use my camera on auto and sent him in when the time came. As I sat just outside the OR the moment they were born you could hear them all the way down the hall. It was a beautiful sound to hear. Shorty after the dad who was spieling ear to ear came out with the twins. He was able to get their first bottle while we waited for mom to come out of the OR.
About three days after the arrival of Hallie Key and Hunter Robert I came in for their fresh 48 session. Mom was doing great and the twins where doing well. We had sun and even took a family picture to commemorate a new family of 5.
Two weeks after the arrival of Hallie Kay and Hunter Robert was their lifestyle newborn session. I got to document their nursery and capture how the new family of 5. Both Hallie and Hunter where just precious and loved it when they were close to each other or being held, I even had the joy of holding them.
