Meet yet another Zorz Studios’ epic bride, transforming from an underwater creature painting into a caring mom depicted during her maternity session.

Earlier this year I introduced you to an epic bride gone mommy and here’s another one! I photographed Yana’s epic wedding several years ago in Riviera Maya, Mexico, followed by an even more epic trash-the-dress session. Check out two of their dramatic photos and a video slideshow below first. Both of these images stand strong on my short top list and you can hopefully see why.

Now came a time to photograph her little one, or I can say almost two little ones, one still being cuddled in her belly. So far, most of my such sessions were done for the first pregnancies and having another child handy to participate adds quite a touching feel! I loved including her daughter throughout the session. She just wasn’t too cooperating… This maternity session was cut shorter than I hoped but we managed to create some gentle fairytale-like portraits. We dragged her husband into a couple of photos but he mostly served as a great pacifier for the little one.

P.S. I did use a tested and mentioned earlier trick to get little Maddy’s attention and win her favor by letting her play a photographer, lovely captured by Igor. I also kept saying that there is a bunny hiding behind her mom. She kept searching and later gave up.
