Melanie and Mike’s Maternity Shoot in Newport, RI – RI Maternity Photography

I love maternity sessions!  It’s one of those sessions that you didn’t know you wanted until after the baby is born.  Thankfully Melanie and Mike knew they wanted to capture this short time in their lives before it was too late.  You are only pregnant for 9 months.  It seems like forever when you are going through it, but it really isn’t a long time.  I think a maternity session is about the soon to be parents.  This is a time of excitement and anticipation.  Newport has been a big part of Melanie and Mike’s relationship.  They had their engagement photos taken there, the wedding took place there so what better spot for their maternity shoot?  Melanie has been doing a pregnancy exercise boot camp.   I’m truly impressed with this since when I was pregnant the most I did was walk across the house.  Her trainer gave her a pair of sneakers for their new little girl.  I’m so happy she thought to bring them to our session.  It’s a great way to remember the time before the baby and everything that happened leading up to this amazing moment…
