What better way to celebrate Valentine’s day than with some maternity love? Here’s Melanie + Anthony eagerly anticipating the arrival of their baby and the love they have for each other is so touching. It’s what I love to capture! If you’ve been following my blog then you know that I photographed Anthony + Melanie’s wedding in Paris and I’m so happy to be photographing another major milestone in their lives. When I got to their home that morning for their shoot, Melanie was like “We’re so excited for the shoot, can’t wait to have Heidi’s touch on the photos!” Isn’t that so sweet? Plus she says it in a French accent, so bonus hehe.They had a little poll going amongst their friends and family to guess what the sex of the baby was going to be and the birthdate. Winner will be treated to a dinner and loser will babysit the baby so that they can have a date night. It was a win-win to me, I can’t get enough of babies. Especially a newborn (as long as it’s not a night shift lol). Ok, so I didn’t win but I didn’t lose either, guess I was somewhere in the middle, I was off by one day for the birthdate and I also guessed the wrong sex. I really thought they were going to have a girl but they now have the most adorable little baby boy (photos to follow).
Oh and Melanie’s mom is so talented, she knitted all kinds of little booties and clothes for her first grandbaby. Aren’t they so adorable?I also love what they chose for their nursery decor, I have the same bedding for Kali (she loves her owls!). I think they got everything in the Tree Top Friends set from Skip Hop. They really have such fun and cute things, I’m tempted to get some more after seeing them in real life in their nursery.Proud papa-to-be here 🙂It was so funny, all throughout the shoot the baby was moving around and poking mama. When we were putting on the blocks we were waiting for baby to kick off the letters hehe.Not only is Melanie’s mom talented, so is her grandma who made these fluffy little booties. Melanie’s quite talented and crafty as well, definitely runs in the family.Their excitement is contagious!And gorgeous Melanie, anxious for her baby to come.At the end of the shoot, Melanie says “Ok baby, you can come any time now!” Lol. Even though they were ready, he ended up taking his time anyway. Melanie + Anthony welcomed little baby Nathan on new year’s eve. He really does know how to make an entrance! I can’t wait to show you his newborn photos!
