TWINS!!! Another set of twins!! If you've been following my photography for the past few years you've seen many sessions with "multiples". I have known Nicole for the better part of my life and she and her husband Doug are now expecting twins! They are the owners of the Gauthiers Saranac Lake Inn in Upstate New York and last year purchased some of my photography to grace the walls of their guest rooms. They contacted me again when they were ready to schedule their maternity session. They made a trip from the North Country to the Capital Region to meet up with me at Doug's mother's home.
Can I make a side note here...I could have spent ALL day at that house. There were a million things I could have photographed, a view to die for and every square inch of that house said- "take a load off"- I could have napped like a cat in the sun all afternoon.
Ok so moving on...the weather was crazy- 1750% humidity, breezy then still, hot then cool- crazy. But we were able to find a groove and get some great work done! We started outside in the yard...
Take a gander at this view- breathtaking!!
We simply couldn't take the heat and humidity any longer so we moved on inside and found so many cool places around the house to work with!
Prior to their session, Nicole sent me some links of other photos she really liked the style and feel of. She told me she really like black and white photos, and one pose in particular that she wanted to try was a window shot...I think we nailed it!!!
And even more cool spots, different outfits...I could have stayed ALL day!!
I think they both thought I was crazy when I told them I was going to stop talking to them for a few minutes and they were on their own to "figure it out for yourself". I wanted a totally natural, candid moment....perfect. Exactly what I was going for.
This is one of those "cat nap" locations in this house...
And how cute is this next shot? I love it!!
Thank you Nicole and Doug for inviting me to photograph your pregnancy! I wish you the best and I can't wait to meet the twins this summer!
