Sneak Peek Maternity Family Shoot

I’m so excited to share these “Sneak Peek” photos from our family maternity shoot at the Carlyle House by the talented Jessica Burdge, of Jessica Burdge Photography. In addition to being absolutely thrilled with how gorgeous these photos turned out, I have to praise Jessica for her child-whispering talent. Scarlett is currently obsessed with this hideous blue stuffed animal bear wearing a red scarf , and we were unable to pry it from her grip for this shoot. Literally no amount of bribing would get her to surrender the bear. Jessica stepped in and saved the day by offering to hold “bear bear” the ENTIRE time while she shot. It turned into an hour-long negotiating event (yay for 2 year olds). Scarlett listened to Jessica better than she did us (go figure) and Jessica was calm and super-patient the entire time. I was impressed. And I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos, which I’ll share in a new post once we get them.
