Engagement photography session at Morton Arboretum in Chicago, Illinois.
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.
The last time I took pictures of Susanne and Josh was on their wedding day. This time, it was just hours before the new year and I was taking pictures of their growing family in their home. It was simple and so very sweet. The world is so ready to meet their little boy.
