Stephanie: Maternity

Simple, cozy, light filled and minimal.

This beautiful mama, Stephanie, she got it. Loved spending the morning photographing her.

After shooting indoors, we headed outside for a few photos in the open space next to her home. Isn’t that tree amazing?!?!

See a few of my favorites below…

Parastou: Maternity

It melts my heart when I’m able to document another milestone in my couples’ lives. This gorgeous mama just so happens to be one of my past brides. She was stunning on her wedding day, and absolutely glowing as a mama to be! Isn’t Parastou a beauty? Loved seeing and documenting her in this season of life!

Side note — I’ve received inquiries from sweet mamas who think I do maternity just for friends / past brides. Not the case at all! I have grown to really love shooting maternity sessions. Especially, when they are simple and lovely. No need for creepy and cheesy photos. You know what I’m saying? : )

Here are a few favorites from Parastou’s session…

North Avenue Beach Chicago Portrait Session: Vanessa & Hugo

deep in my bones, i can feel you
take me back to a time when only we knew
hideaway

say you’ll never let me go
say you’ll never let me go

//

we got caught in traffic shortly after we left the first location. we sat in the car in awe of sky from the inside. purples, pinks, and oranges! not going to lie, the nervous sweats started to kick in. but then the traffic cleared. we parked, caught the very last light, and it was PURE magic.

that skyline, their connection, those blues. heart eyes & crazy squeals for days.
you should have heard me.

thanks for one lovely evening, h&v.

Jennie

This mama is my dear friend, Jennie.
She is a beautiful soul who has brightened my life with her friendship in more ways than she can imagine.

We spent the afternoon together recently. Snapping photos of this wonderful season.

I have quite a few favorites from our time together, but below are a few of them.
That first one, agh. Her smile says it all.

I could go on and on, but I’ll keep it short & sweet today…

So incredibly happy for you & Dave, my dear. I can’t even wait to snuggle on Baby Pix.

Pix, you are so loved.

You have no idea.
