What is sexy? Well lots of things… confidence, beauty – inner and outer beauty that is, attitude, looks, smarts – all of these things can be sexy no doubt.
What about pregnancy?
YES. SOOOOO sexy!!!!!!
A beautiful woman carrying a child – a nuturer, a protector with that bump is absolutely sexy and a boudoir photo session is a perfect way to capture that. Lindsay owned it in front of Ally’s camera and we are thrilled to share the results! Boudoir sessions can be done a number of ways – in the intimate setting of someone’s home, here in the studio depending on how far we go (think nudity), or even outdoors in nature! Obviously we don’t publish photos from all of our boudoir sessions, but with Lindsay’s permission we have some photos at her home and outdoors and we’ll highlight a couple of each here!
First we’ll start in the bedroom:
Allure of Anticipation with Lindsay…
She looks incredible…
And let’s take a look at a couple outdoors:
If you’re thinking about boudoir remember these photos are for you first and foremost, but they’re obviously fun for your partner too! They’re sure to spice things up. 🙂
Lindsay looks fantastic and thanks to her for letting us show off these fabulously spicy photos! The allure of anticipation indeed!

Okay so let me explain… Many of you know our event photographer Angela aka “Nikon Girl”. Angela has been with us since she walked into the studio on February 11th, 2011 asking if we were looking for a photographer. She was still a photography student then but she had her little portfolio with her and Ally saw something in her photos, so we kidnapped her that very day and took her on location with us. She just fit. She’s always just fit, and she has grown so much as a photographer (even though she shoots with Nikon….haha – as you know Ally shoots with Canon)! She has captured so many amazing moments for our clients at Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, Communions, Weddings, and various other parties and events! Meanwhile she has grown in other ways too – like personally! She’s expecting a little one with her fiancé Cam now and so here we turn the tables and make Angela the subject of a photo session here on the blog! The first “official” Frameable Faces Fam baby is on the way!
Frameable Faces Fam Baby On The Way….
Oh – and it’s a girl! So here we go – this maternity session was just the cutest and a bit surreal too!
So beautiful – love the half black and white filter on this one… so serene.
We spent some time in the studio first and Cam jumped in for a few too! We also have some fun behind the scenes action for you – first we have the replay of the live Periscope broadcast that we did on our Tuesday afternoon show on ParachuteTV1 which was the very first network of its kind on Periscope. Our show is every Tuesday and it’s a photography show at 2 PM EST called The Photo Shop! You can follow ParachuteTV1 on Periscope here, or you can follow our own @FrameableFaces channel and be a part of the fun here.

Let’s get Cam into the picture now shall we?
How fun are they? Loving the purple too!
One more together….
Out into the snow…
And yes – we went outside to get some photos in the snow!!! We have a little more behind the scenes fun to share for this – this time from Facebook Live:
So we’ll leave you with one more photo – one of our favorite maternity shots we’ve ever done I have to say….
Angela is beautiful in every way – inside and out and she is going to be an amazing mommy. We can’t wait to meet the baby – the first Frameable Faces Fam Baby! We are so proud of our Nikon Girl and so happy for her and Cam! We hope you enjoyed the highlights of our day!

Serendipity is an amazing thing when it happens. When you get swirled up in it and you know something special is happening it’s an amazing and rare experience. Do you know what serendipity is? Here’s the official definition:
Now here’s the way it went down on March 16, 2016 at Frameable Faces…
Me: Frameable Faces this is Doug!
Phone Caller: Uh hello – we have a bit of an urgent situation here with a maternity session…. um – you see my wife…. well are you available to take photos of my wife today?
Me: Wait – is she in labor?????
Phone Caller: Well no she’s not in labor – it’s not an emergency like that or anything. Let me explain. Here’s what happened…
What happened was that Nick and Jen were 36 weeks pregnant and had a maternity photo session planned with another studio that day. They were all prepared with clothing and Jen had her hair and makeup done only to be told that the studio had double booked them and they were out of luck. Sorry, no go, thanks for playing. Nick did a quick search on Yelp, came across Frameable Faces and took a chance with a phone call. Now keep in mind that this is NOT how we do photo sessions here. We don’t take walk-ins as a general rule with no consultation ahead of time to plan the session where we can get to know the clients and make sure everyone is prepared and on the same page. But these folks were in a bind and we didn’t have any appointments that afternoon – and my gut (after checking with Ally) said to go with it.
We were not expecting a session that day, and they were not expecting to have to shift gears and drive almost a half hour to a studio they didn’t know on the fly for a maternity session which can be a relatively intimate affair. But from the moment they walked in we connected – it felt right and it turned out to be one of the best maternity sessions we’ve ever done. What a wonderful couple – we even broadcast some of the session live on Periscope and you can watch the replay below, but before we get to that let’s see a couple of the photos!
How cute are they?
We used two different backdrops starting with the black above and the next photo is also on the black with the sari stretched out behind Jen and her hair gently blowing – beautiful!
Now let’s take a look at our behind the scenes action from the session. First we have our fun 6 second looping Vine:

Now we have the replay of the live Periscope broadcast from our YouTube page! If you haven’t downloaded Periscope yet you should do so immediately! You can follow us there (and just about everywhere else) at the handle @frameablefaces at this link:
Now let’s get back to a couple of gorgeous photos of Jen on the white background. So beautiful, so angelic!
Breathtaking indeed… And we’ll leave you with one more:
We can’t wait to meet the baby! Maybe, just maybe you’ll have a chance to meet the baby here too! We were thrilled to be able to meet these two, photograph them and present them to you! We hope you enjoyed the highlights – serendipity indeed.
The cutest expectant couple ever came to our studio for a maternity photo session and we loved having them here! Tetyana and Cergiy are having a boy and they are so excited. We were happy to be included in such a special time in their lives and to take some fun photographs. Allow us to share some wonderful sneak peeks from their session!
Tetyana had some really fun ideas when we met for the consultation including a couple we had not done before. One of them was the idea of painting Cergiy’s hands blue and creating hand prints around the growing baby in the womb. It wasn’t even really that messy! We made a fun behind the scenes vine of this. Take a look!
Such a cute couple and fun #maternity session!!! ❤️
…and here are the results:
Isn’t that cute? There is so much love in these photos! Now we don’t want to embarrass them but the other thing we have to mention is how much we love their accents – so fun and they are just happy fun people. These next two poses are probably our favorite maternity poses. We love all of them but these are pretty consistently special every time we do this. This time was no exception.
This is just beautiful of Tetyana by herself.
There is such connection here – it’s wonderful!
It is pretty clear to us that this will be a lucky baby who is born into such a loving couple’s lives, and that is part of the reason maternity photos are so special. A couple that is excited enough to document and preserve a moment of anticipation as their family starts to grow is worth celebrating. You can see why I called this post “The Cutest Expectant Couple Ever!” We hope you enjoyed these and we cannot wait to meet the little baby boy!
We love maternity sessions and they are especially fun when they are the second one with the same family! To be a part of this the second time around with a soon-to-be older sister who we have been photographing since she was a newborn is really special.
Older sister’s name begins with an “H” and something else she is that starts with “H” is a HAM. She is so funny and we love her – such a character! Great family and great session!
