The Grandlienards / Chicago Maternity Session

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. double exposureIMG_1511IMG_1383IMG_1380IMG_1408IMG_1412IMG_1451IMG_1433IMG_1509IMG_1529IMG_1559IMG_1578IMG_1593IMG_1723

Baby Watson

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. img_6791img_6797img_6812img_6824img_6831img_6832img_6834img_6837img_6855img_6862img_6864img_6872img_6875img_6902img_6903img_6914
