Christy + Blake + Baby Bump

It’s funny how photography works. One summer will be filled with ALL of the family sessions, one summer will be filled with seniors the next something different! I was talking with a friend lately about how there must be something in the water because I’ve photographed ALL of the baby bumps lately. And they’ve been so beautiful.

Christy and Blake suggested water for their session and I loved the idea. Little did I know we would have THE perfect day for such a session. Christy was a trooper because this little hidden gem of a place is behind some baseball fields, which apparently were holding tournaments during our slotted session time. She made baring her bump with a possible crowd looking on look effortless and magical.

You both are going to be incredible parents and I’m so excited for you to bring life into this world!

sidenote: her Becky shirt is on point and I think everyone who is pregnant should have one!

Abby + Austin

It’s no secret that couples are my jam. I love spending an hour or two engulfed in the love they share. Being a fly on the wall, an awkward fly on the wall, while they share little laughs, loving looks at one another. It’s seriously my favorite. These two are just one example of why I love being that awkward fly. Abby ( pretty awesome name am I right?!) said this was their first time getting photos taken together. You’d never be able to tell. They were super comfortable, but then maybe that’s because they love each other so much and love each other out loud through the way they hug or whisper in one another’s ear. See for yourself, check out their dreamy session.

p.s.

Abby has mad dance skills. Austin’s reaction is proof! ha!

I bought a Native American headdress once.

I bought a Native American headdress once. I was dying to do a photo shoot with it and thankfully I have some really great friends that made this fun shoot happen. No really, it was a blast. We drove around and found a field full of daisies during the golden hour. We, well Pat, lied to a guy that stopped to check out what we were doing. Told him Sam was a famous model and we were a photography group from Chicago photographing the locals, he was intrigued so it was a win. Brought out smoke bombs and sparklers and trekked down to a water location, shout out to Sam who did it in heels. When it got dark we decided to stop in the middle of a back road and do some cool things with the most magical evening sky. Pat also did the most flawless toe touch we have ever seen, but that’s for another blog post!

Check out the photos below!
