When I found out Dominique’s sister was pregnant, I begged her to do a double baby-bump shoot. My normally agreeable and down-for-anything-stylist flat out refused!!! LOL! But that’s ok. She let me take her maternity pics the first time she was pregnant. Finally, I was able to convince her to hop in one shot to help me realize my dream of capturing the unlikely moment of two gorgeous sisters being pregnant at the same time!
Of course, this shoot wasn’t about me and my wishes. It was about Ilia and her blooming family. I’m so happy that I was able to photograph her and her husband while they were visiting from the Big Apple. I’ve photographed Ilia a few times before, but this time was special. Is it too corny if I say she glowed? Probably. But, that’s exactly what I mean. Dominique dressed her sister in yellow to show Ilia’s joyful disposition and styled her hair in a giant curly, free-flowing pouf.
This behind the scenes video shows how much fun we had on set:
Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot:
