Beautiful expecting mama to be | chicago maternity photographer

Oh my goodness, I have been DYING to share this lifestyle pregnancy session with the internet world!! We got lucky with warm weather, and this Chicago couple were amazing sports, so we got away with THREE outfit changes. (That's kind of a record for a pregnant mama! I don't know what I'm doing to attract all the best clients, so I'm going to keep doing what I know best!)  Gah, I can't wait to meet their little baby girl making her debut soon in a couple months. Judging by the looks of these two, she's gonna be BEAUTIFUL. Her daddy better start working on his boyfriend intimidation tactics... 

P.S. Best way to get naturally gorgeous beach tousled hair waves? End your session with me AT THE BEACH. Don't forget to check out those romantic images at the end- they're pretty darn drool worthy! ;)  

Here are some highlights from our maternity session together. Hope you enjoy!

 
 

When you walk by a tree and spot a natural heart shape on it, you have to stop and take a few images. It's like it was meant to be. NBD. 

Helloooo pregnancy cravings! ;) 

FYI, this pink balloon was a bit feisty at our last spot. Can't blame the balloon though, we DO live in the WINDY city...

I told her hubby to hug his pregnant baby mama. She was chilly by the water! :) 

I LOVE showing layers of intimacy in sessions like these...

Another WINDY city perk? My maternity clients naturally act like a professional model, holding their hair back away from their face. I just happen to be there, camera ready...

Daaaang, I wish I looked half as good while preggo!! 

ROMANTIC + INTIMATE all rolled up in one... gahhhhh! It's just magic. I'm just grateful these two let me experiment and get a little extra creative during this session. The payoff is HUGE! ;)
