Long-awaited maternity | Maternity photography

This was a special maternity photography session for me and I was truly honored to shoot them. This sweet family has been waiting a very long time for this and the excitement showed! We met up at Ewing Park in Bloomington, IL and wandered around shooting in the lovely wooded area. You know people often comment that a pregnant woman is glowing? Bri was most definitely glowing. I know that her daughter will truly treasure these photos some day…to see her mom carrying her and looking so beautiful. In just a short time a new little human will be in this world. I can’t wait to meet this incredibly loved little baby!

Maternity photography is always fun for me. Pregnant women are so beautiful and glowy. I usually see them close to the end of their pregnancy so the excitement is always especially high. This lovely family included a doting dad, gorgeous momma and excited big sister. I always feel happy for clients that choose to get maternity pictures done. It’s such a transitional time in their lives so full of hope, love and joy before they welcome a new little human into this world.

Serious wind and rain had cancelled our previous session. Then on an uncharacteristically warm January day, I texted Ashleigh to see if they could be free. Everything aligned and we were able to get this session in before their gorgeous baby arrived. We also lucked out with a huge empty barn at their house to hide in when the wind started getting more brisk. Such an exciting time before your life changes completely.
