Johnson Family | Botanical Gardens Maternity Family Session

It was the most glorious day.

It was almost if the sun was so happy, it couldn’t do anything but smile!

Shelby, Nate and Grey walked in matching beautifully and glowing because baby boy #2 is on the way.

Family sessions always require a little more energy of me… doing crazy things to make babies smile, running backwards as the family walks toward me, lying on the ground to get up close with the toddler… Sounds like a lot of sweat, right? (I know, gross)

Well, as funny as it sounds, both my job and Nate’s job require us to sweat. Okay… maybe it’s not a requirement, but it’s definitely a byproduct. Nate is the owner of Steel Strength Training, a gym (soon to be empire) in the Lakeview pocket of Birmingham. And sweating is basically part of his job.

Alright, I hear you… enough about sweating. Let’s talk about this little FAM! Honestly, I couldn’t really take a bad picture when these three were in front of the camera. They’re so excited to welcome baby #2 in November, and it was such an honour to photograph them again.

I hope you enjoy these images, and perhaps take a picnic to the Botanical Gardens this summer!
