Allyson told me she fell in love with this location for the way it brought both of their stories out of it, and that’s kind of my favorite thing about the session. She’s from Indy and the sand dunes connected her to it, and Connell grew up in Evanston. It is just that more special when we can intertwine all of the stories and create something that feels like home but it’s brand new. In a lot of ways thats the perfect definition of parenthood. This brand new journey we’re embarking on with a new little human with the same but changed us. Maternity sessions are slowly becoming a top favorite. I think it’s the anticipation. For a few minutes I can feel the wild storm of nerves, of what if’s. I can see and experience through my lens how much love is spilling out of the people waiting to be parents. That was certainly the case for these two. We won’t even get into how beautiful they both are. It was the perfect weather for the perfect couple. I think the clouds added so much dimension and I won’t shy away from cloudy days any longer.
I can’t wait to photograph their sweet little boy, and to just see how much more love and devotion my lens can capture. I am a lucky girl to get a chance to have a part in capturing the loveliest of stories. I have a feeling this one will be a long one.
