shoot with Geri

Tuesday, August 23

One of my favorite friends from school, Miss Geri moved away to California last year so her husband could learn how to be a fancy doctor. It was sad. But then they decided to come up for a visit to ole Idaho, and lucky for us ... we just so happened to still be there.

We met up with her, her husband {official bug killer of the evening} and her camera for a little non-maternity, maternity shoot. AKA ... the kind where you don't get neked and wrap yourself in sheets. She planned the whole thing: a picnic complete with orange soda, donuts, fruit and licorice. Girl is GOOD with the pregnant ones.

We absolutely LOVE them! ... she captured exactly how we're feeling at this happy, exciting time in our lives. And we can't wait to fill our home with her photography. Maybe an entire wall even.
Kind of like a shrine ... a weird maternity shrine.

Head on over here to see the whole shoot! And P.S. Geri is giving away a FREE FULL PHOTO SHOOT on her site today ... so give her some love! Comment and win that bad boy.

Jenni Austria Germany said...

i kinda want to hire her to do a pregnant photoshoot for me. i'm not pregnant, but i definitely want the food.

MG said...

I LOVE that you did a non-pregnancy pregnancy shoot. I can't stand the naked sheet deal. Photos are amazing, you both look so happy.

Gabrielle Rose said...

nice pictures

MellyB said...

Nothing wrong with a little naked sheet action, 'specially if you have whale sounds slash nature vocals playing in the background.. of your life.


But these are good too. I had no pregnancy shots because I can't make my hands go into heart shape on my belly without looking like I'm throwing gangs signs. And I don't want to be shot.

Catherine said...

LOVE those pictures. Just stunning, as usual. Geri is one of my favorite photographers! Definitely checking out that giveaway! :)

Gorgeous Sydney! My husband and I are photographers in Grand Rapids, MI and we try to avoid maternity sessions at all costs because we HATE that naked, here is my belly in your face, type session ... but when our good friends asked us to take pictures of their growing baby bump, we took that lifestyle session route. We took their pictures in Annapolis! It's so gorgeous there - you'll have to visit and blog about it. :)

Here is the maternity session we shot if you want to check it out!

Sidewalk Ready said...

by the way, I just realized that on the bottom of that blog post, I wrote "p.s. Hi Sydney" ... and just so I don't look a complete creeper, I was talking about a different Sydney. But what a crazy coincidence! :D

Mrs. Parker said...

these photos are awesome! love the non-maternity maternity photos.

Dana Richards said...

That first picture is absolutely adorable, and self-shrine worthy haha

Hilary said...

HEY SYD. You should post a tutorial on how you created those curls. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. I haven't been able to curl my hair away from my face as successfully as you did in that adorable photo shoot! Congrats!

Ashley said...

Cute! I love the way he looks at you!
