When I photographed Saadia 1.5 years ago, I couldn’t wait to get her in front of my camera again. A talented photographer herself, Saadia knows how to work her angles and always delivers equal parts glamour and fierceness. When she reached out to me to take her maternity photos, I was overjoyed! Plus, it gave me the chance to check out Drew in person. After chatting with him between shots and outfit changes, I could see why Saadia loves him so much…and it was obvious that the feeling is mutual.
I just love this reflection of Saadia and Drew in the mirror. Even though they were being photographed, they were in their own little world. Whether smiling or serious, Saadia looked absolutely stunning thinking about her new baby boy to come.
During a shoot, it always pays to look around in all directions. I almost missed this “&” sign. Once I saw it, all I could think was, “…and baby makes 3!” I was even more excited that it perfectly matched Saadia’s outfit.
I see you checkin’ her out, Drew!
At one point during the shoot, a random guy stopped and said something to us. Even though we didn’t catch what he said, it made us bust out laughing. But, Saadia and Drew quickly pulled themselves together to deliver one of my many favorite images from the session. It seems like they are looking ahead to the new life they will soon have.
Thanks, Saadia and Drew, for choosing me to document this special moment in your lives. I can’t wait to meet your little boy!
