Maternity photography celebrates the strength of the female body and the hope of what is yet unseen. Spring is the perfect time for it, because we see the fruits of our hope manifested in nature. Emily and Jared are going to be great parents. They are compassionate and strong. Unwavering in love. The flowering spring trees in Lombard's Lilacia Park are like them... rooted and beautiful. It was the perfect place for a maternity session.
This squishy boy is perfect. He is his parent's hope rewarded. I've been incredibly blessed to photograph each of the Oprie children just days after their births and their family is so precious to me. I love you guys!
