Everyone loves to see a good before and after, right? Well, hear me out and I’ll show you one! When my brother and sister-in-law got pregnant the first time, back in 2015, I was just starting out in the photography world. I was shooting in automatic and hoping people knew how to look natural in front of the camera. Boy, how things have changed, and I am so thankful for this sweet family.
Peter and Ariana have been beyond patient with me; letting me practice all types of photography on their growing family. Countless sessions with Violette, styled shoots, maternity sessions, and more family photos than you can count. Their growing family has helped grow my business in so many ways, in fact, Ariana was the one that created the CHP Instagram account. I really did hit the in-law jackpot! That’s a thing, right?
Anyway, my latest session with the Hansen family turned out to be one of my most favorite sessions to date. We got a little bit of everything, an empty park, dreamy light, an open field, a happy kiddo (before the nap), a bright orange sunset on the water, and Peter only had to endure 15-20 minutes of photos! You can see all of this goodness below and if you make it all the way to the bottom of the post, you’ll find the first maternity photo I took of Ariana back in 2015, enjoy!
Yup, you made it all the way here! Drum roll please.... the never before seen, first ever CHP maternity photo, featuring Ariana Hansen!
