Congratulations to Mariah! // Maternity Photoshoot

April 14, 2019 Jasemine Denise Photography 2 min read 19 Comments

As I’m typing this maternity photoshoot blog, I’m shaking with excitement. By the time you start reading this, the King will already have emerged victorious and we couldn’t be more proud. The Cancino family is one of my favorites to photograph. I’ve known them for half my life. I can vividly remember Mariah taking the cinnamon challenge in the kitchen of where I was getting one of my many tattoos. That’s a story for another day. Today, we celebrate the coming of Mariah’s firstborn child by showing off her maternity photoshoot!

Congratulations Mariah // Lansing Maternity Photoshoot

Here comes her nephew Bluu to make it even cuter.
He’s clearly an excited cousin but he had so many questions about what was going on inside of the belly that we couldn’t help but laugh as he ran around his mom to be a part of every single photo!

This maternity photoshoot also took a creatively evolving turn! As you can see it started to snow, so we finished the rest of her session in a makeshift studio. Coming all the way from Chicago, I didn’t travel with a ton of lights or a backdrop. Typically, I do but we only had two sessions in Lansing… So we finished the session the best way Jasemine Denise Photography knows how.. On the fly.

It got even more cuter because this baby was born a king. 

Congratulations to Mariah on her newborn boy Kyrie!

I travel as a photographer, I write novels , and I fan girl a lot. I have an unnecessary attachment to all things 80s punk, 90s hip hop, and girl power. I typically write in the same tone that I talk in so you should probably be prepared for that. Just saying.

    Mariah looks so happy! You did a great job capturing that natural emotion, her sweet smile, and that happy aura. If I would come to know of anyone who would need a photoshoot for any occasion, I would definitely put in a good word about your service.

    I can see the happiest smile for a mother during her pregnancy journey. Someone told me mom became the prettiest during her pregnancy period. I simply agree after looking at these pictures.

    I like how you read motherhood in your photos in a young, fresh and definitely less set way … more natural and true!
