January Mama of the Month -Redmond Maternity Photo Session

This months blog features a stunning Mama, TJ, and her family, for an outdoor maternity session in Redmond. TJ and I talked a lot about what she was looking for in her images and we decided that Evans Creek Preserve would be the ideal location, with its mix of open grassland, cute bridges and forest areas.  

I asked TJ to tell me a little bit more about her family and the session,

Tell me a little about yourself, how you met Sid and why you decided to have children? 

I am from India, and spent my childhood all over the country and several years in Holland/Germany. I can’t, unfortunately, speak either language, though :)

Sid and I have known each other since we were 12 and went to the same high school. We have been together since we were 16, and had discussed the future off and on…family was always in the picture

 Why did you decide to have maternity photos and what made you choose me to capture this special time? 

When I was expecting Vyaas, we were moving from Florida to Boston, and I never had the time to celebrate the pregnancy like I wanted to. I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss the chance this time. I asked a group of moms on the Eastside who they used for their photo sessions, and Andrea recommended you. I looked at your work and loved it!

What advice would you give to other expecting mothers thinking of booking a  session? 

Book the session well in advance and trust Monique with the rest :)
