Maternity Shoot | Southborough, MA | Renee & Brandon | Jen Araya Photography

There is something so special about a maternity shoot!  Watching the couple connect while they are waiting for their baby to arrive is amazing.  I love these sessions because they are so intimate and sweet, just like the babies that will arrive!  I mean, who doesn’t like holding newborns and that new baby smell?
I have known Renee and Brandon since they were high school sweethearts, and I happened to see them at Dairy Queen in town.  Mommy to be and baby were craving ice cream, and it is always nice to bump into them.  As we were catching up they mentioned that they’d be interested in a maternity session, and I was honored that they had asked.
When the time for the shoot came, we met up at my favorite (aka secret!) spot in Southborough, MA.  It’s a wide open field right next to a highway, but you wouldn’t know there was a highway there from the angles it offers.  Renee was glowing that day, and we were fortunate enough to pick a day where the wildflowers were in full bloom!
Renee and Brandon knew they were going to be having a boy, and Bennett Bond was born just a few weeks ago.  I could not be happier for all three of them, and have had the pleasure of meeting baby Bennett as well.  Congratulations to you guys and please enjoy some of my favorites from this shoot!
xoxo Jen Araya
