I can’t imagine anything more beautiful than an expecting mother. Her face glowing and eyes filled with love, hope, and eager anticipation. Although it doesn’t even last a year, those months of pregnancy seem to last a lifetime as the parents-to-be wait on the arrival of their little bundle of joy.
I couldn’t stop smiling as I clicked away through Olivia’s maternity shoot. She looked stunning in her pink dress made of intricate lace and another chiffon dress that accentuated her bump. She and her husband chatted their way down a tree-lined path, using the photo session as a time to get away together. The deep, earthy colors of pre-fall made for a stunning backdrop. They both looked so relaxed at ease, embracing the beauty of pregnancy.
A Bundle of Joy, Excitedly Anticipated
I truly loved capturing their excitement and close bond as husband and wife. You could just see the happiness exuding from them, knowing that each passing day brings them just a little closer to meeting their little one. They also used this session to reveal the name of their sweet daughter. I don’t know the reason they chose the name, but I love that it means “strong.” The name is beautiful and feminine but not fragile. I have a feeling that this little baby will be strong, beautiful, and full of personality just like her mother.
I can’t help but hope to have the pleasure of seeing newborns after each maternity shoot I do. Nothing compares to the excitement of an expecting parent. But one of my greatest joys as a photographer is building relationships with my clients and seeing their families grow over the years!
Being the Winnetka Wilmette Glencoe Best Maternity Photography artist allows me the opportunity to meet such amazing families!
