Larianne's 32nd Birthday Shoot & Maternity Session | Norwalk, CT

During last year's birthday shoot, I remember hoping and praying that my next birthday shoot would also be a maternity session. God answered our prayers, and we are expecting our third baby boy!

You can probably tell that I'm far along with pregnancy. Not because of the big belly, but because of the lack of props haha. Do you know how exhausting it is to get make up done on a sore tailbone, change into clothes, blow up balloons, and set up lighting? It's exhausting.  Larianne's 32nd Birthday Shoot at Tide & True Studios in Norwalk, CT. Birthday photo shoot ideas for black women.

My favorite part of my yearly sessions is the headshot segment. I have a little Dropbox folder with all of my headshots. I think this year's is my favorite!  Larianne's 32nd Birthday Shoot at Tide & True Studios in Norwalk, CT. Birthday photo shoot ideas for black women.

Even though I have two other children, I had never done a maternity session in a studio before. Jaden's was at a park in Massachusetts and Jonathan's was at Central Park with the rest of the family. This was such a cool experience! I definitely have a better understanding of how my maternity clients probably feel during their session.

Also, it was just my second time working with fabrics. Isabelle was such a great help. We literally could not have done this segment without her. She made sure I was tucked in properly and looking good, and she threw the fabric as many times as I asked her to haha.

I can't decide if I like blue or purple, so here are both options!

I always see these clean editorial-looking bodysuit maternity photos on Instagram and I've been wanting to replicate that for years. Just a couple weeks after I found out I was pregnant, I bought this bodysuit. That's how excited I was. And these are some of my favorite photos of myself! Clean, simple, elegant.

I just want to thank Roody for his patience with me. Our shoots are always 5 hours long, and he never complains. He takes my creative direction so well. I'm so proud of him!

Happy 32nd birthday to me, and I can't wait to meet our little prince in April!
