urban chic pregnancy | chicago maternity lifestyle photographer

 

I met this GORGEOUS mama-to-be at my good friend's recent bridal shower, and it turns out that we're neighbors!

She's not a professional model, but I think she could totally pass for one! Not only does she have this infectious smile and laugh, but she's super sweet and she has an amaaaazing rocking athletic bod that she's proud to show of her baby bump! I wanted to help deliver her images that would highlight her body confidence. We mixed it up and did half of her session in my home studio for some maternity boudoir, and half outside around the city. And we HAD A BLAST! :) 

And I can't believe it- her due date is coming up in a couple of weeks! Can't wait to meet her baby (gender unknown) and photograph them in-home for their newborn session. This kid is bound to be as ATHLETIC and good lookin' like his parents. ;)

Here's a few highlights of some of my favorites from our recent session together, hope you enjoy! 

 
 

Folks- this mama has ABS... MUSCULAR ABS on the sides of her baby bump. Ridiculously athletic, this one. She's been doing bikram yoga forever, and kept it up all the way through her pregnancy. I'm having some serious mom-bod envy over here, even with her baby bump. Does it count that I have ab too, but UNDER my layer of belly fat?!
