Lifestyle Maternity Session | Marlyne + Herriot

Her: “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth! For your love is better than wine;”

Him: “Behold, you are beautiful, my love; behold, you are beautiful;”
The words of King Solomon still echoes today… in the hearts of Marlyne and Herriot. Their love for each other has once again blossomed into another beautiful journey of life. AVD photography was thrilled to be called upon again, to capture some of the precious moments between mom-and-dad-to-be on their second time around. Big-brother-to-be Elijah was very much excited to be a part of the day’s event.

Our glowing mom-to-be was dolled up by Makeup artist Keesha Superspice, she was even more excited after seeing the results. The day was perfect and the weather was gorgeous. It was time to get this show on the road. 
The on-location shoot was captured at the couple’s beautiful home in Miramar, Florida. We took full advantage of the luscious trees and well manicured lawns nestled in their beautiful community. We even got some shots by the lake and the bridge, which turned out to be great on-site props for the shoot. Pregnancy and sexy definitely went hand in hand, as the beautiful mom-to-be basked in her element. Embracing nature and her even more defined curves, she gracefully allowed us to capture her essence of motherhood. It was effortlessly beautiful. 
After capturing quite a few amazingly intimate moments with the couple and some fun family time with their son, we decided to head back to their home for a more “lifestyle” approach. 
Their home was extremely warm and welcoming. Wooden banisters and staircase paired with hardwood floors, walls graced with framed collages of the family… a visual reminder of their life’s journey thus far. The couple and their son changed into the color that signified the sex of the soon-to-be-addition to their growing family… the thought of a little “girl” made everyone smile as mama-to-be beamed with joy. The best accessories provided were the genuine love and laughter that filled the room from our beautiful couple. They’re excitement spilled over to the crew which made shooting them an absolute breeze. We are definitely looking forward to meeting their princess. 

Her: “As an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. With great delight I sat in his shadow, and his fruit was sweet to my taste. He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.”

He: “My dove, my perfect one, is the only one, the only one of her mother, pure to her who bore her. The young women saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her.”
