Heidi’s Belly Shoot

September 1, 2009

When I was up in Vermont for Kevin & Alex’s wedding I headed over to Heidi & Ave’s house to do the long awaited belly shoot. Approximately one second after I heard that Heidi was pregnant I started to imagine the possibilities of a belly shoot and also all that will come after. Their baby will be welcomed into the world on Thursday and I can’t wait to meet her on Monday and start to document her life. Besides Lila, Heidi & Ave are my first close friends who are having a baby so I am pretty psyched to be around this little person as she grows up!

Heidi & especially Ave were quite tolerant of the photo shoot and were very good sports as we moved locations in the hot weather!

Anyone who has been to Heidi & Ave’s house know that they have this fabulous tub under an apple tree in their backyard. The temperature outside was approximately 95 so while I was sweating Heidi & Ave were happy to hang out in the tub πŸ™‚

Their barn provided my wall fix πŸ™‚ Jeff hasn’t seen Heidi since she’s been pregnant so when he saw this picture he said “wow – she’s really pregnant :)” Yes, honey….she is!

Love this tree near their house.

On Shelburne Farms there’s this fabulous stand of trees that flanks either side of the road. The light was starting to get glorious by this point πŸ™‚ I love how Ave has to kind of avoid her belly to give her a squeeze πŸ™‚

I love the warmth of this photo – their expressions, the light, everything πŸ™‚

We finished the shoot in the lake at sunset…..I finally cooled off as I was shooting in water up to my waist. Thankfully I didn’t drop my camera πŸ™‚



Fabulous Amanda! You really did a wonderful job with this shoot. Their is love, happiness, and beauty in each image. Something that Heidi and Ave will cherish for years to come as they look back on this moment in their lives. Love love LOVE the tub shot. I still think that is awesome they have a tub with hot water in their back yard. AWESOME!

Oh, my God! These are adorable! And the tub just knocked my socks off. Heidi looks great. I can't believe her tiny body has that big ol' belly! Amazing. They look incredibly happy and excited. The lighting and the settings are perfect. Can't wait to see pics of the new baby!
