Setting the Scene
We met up with expectant parents, Eric & Rosemary on a chilly day for November Maternity Pictures. Eric had chosen Porecco College Center for their shoot because it was close to home and he liked the location. We’d shot at the location before and agreed. It’s a hidden gem in the middle of busy Erie, Pa. Sprawling lawns open up to rustic red barns and a quaint apple orchard behind an old wooden fence. The location is serene and beautiful. Rosemary told us she was hoping for sweet, country looking photos for their first baby.

Choosing the Perfect Attire
Rosemary chose a long navy dress with pink flowers for their November Maternity Pictures. Eric arrived in a plaid long sleeve shirt and khaki’s. Eric is kind of known for his love of sneakers. Of course, he showed up wearing his current favorite pair. While Rosemary said she liked the look of their outfits she wished she would have picked out an outfit to coordinate with a cute jacket. The day was chilly. We let her borrow a long cardigan we keep with us at shoots. In between posing we wrapped the mom-to-be in a fuzzy blanket she mentioned being grateful for. Her advice on choosing outfits is to plan accordingly, be prepared, and most importantly, just relax and have fun with it.

What They Showed Off
Eric & Rosemary brought along a copy of their sonogram and a pair of tiny FILA sneakers to their November Maternity Pictures. I wasn’t shocked about the adorable sneakers given Eric’s reputation. It was a sweet touch and made the session more personal. Knowing the couple from having provided Disc Jockey & Photo Booth for their wedding, we brought a funny sign for Eric to use. This dad has a great sense of humor and will be telling legendary dad jokes for decades. Eric holding the sign will be one of our favorites for years to come.

Wrapping Things Up
Rosemary was about 34 weeks along during their November Maternity Pictures. This is perfect timing for a photo shoot. Mom’s should be early in their third trimester. She told us they’re expecting their bundle of joy on December 10th. So far, she’s had a smooth pregnancy and Eric has treated her to a pregnancy massage to help her relax. In addition Rosemary told us she went into her session feeling confident of her changing body and that despite the temperature her photo team was fantastic. She found the team to be upbeat and positive. This mom-to-be also appreciated the teams prep for the photo shoot. They came prepared with a list of poses and ideas to help the couple set the stage.
