spring bohemian chic pregnancy session | chicago maternity lifestyle photographer

 

I originally met this BEAUTIFUL Chicago family because they're my friends' next door neighbors, and we all happen to take our children to the same preschool. I was incredibly honored to have the opportunity to photograph their family during this exciting time in their lives: BABY #2.

I can't believe little darling Beatrice is going to be a BIG SISTER- she already loves playing with her little baby dolls, so I just know she'll be a natural nurturer! ;)

This gorgeous mama-to-be has some serious style. She came on set with beautiful wardrobe options that really had complementary a bohemian chic theme: just PERFECT for their spring baby that they are expecting!

 

Family is everything.

 
 

Psssst... and btw, MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS.

I know many expecting mamas hesitate to capture this time in their lives for one reason or another, but I promise you- it's important. I know, because I was one of those skeptics and NEVER did a formal maternity session myself! I know, I know... I should know better. We were 'busy' (who isn't?!). I'm full of regrets over here because I can tell you from personal experience- you will soon forget your round belly and the excitement from the anticipation you get from expecting a baby. Plus, how sweet would it be to show your future little one that the cute baby belly you're sporting was him/her in there?! (It's part of the reason I've been actively participating in a new personal project this year to GET IN THE FRAME. Weekly, one image for every week of the year, #p52radness. All of my comrades are just incredible and we are in such a motivating community!)

One of my favorite things to do when I visit back home in Virginia is to sift through my parents' old family albums. I just love seeing all of the old photographs, and to remember what my own mother looked like decades ago. I can't wait to show my own daughter important family stories that we've documented along the way.

Our memories are priceless.
