When Jess and Dan showed up to take their summer maternity portraits, I screamed inside. Maybe out loud. Jess was quite literally glowing and I was so excited to capture these precious memories for them.
We had a few weather scares leading up to their shoot, but were blessed with creamy skies that blue into soft rays of light as we neared sunset. Even though rain was in the forecast, I always tell my clients to wait until the day of before we make a weather call–because more often than not you end up with gorgeous evenings like this!
I love how Jess’ sage dress perfectly compliments the natural environment around her. When I saw this open patch of tall grasses, I knew we had to venture in.
Long, flowy dresses like this one highlight the elegance and femininity of motherhood and are perfect for maternity sessions. Plus they are comfortable, allow you to move freely, and do an awesome job of showing off your growing bump!

Photographs like these aren’t just for you to post on social media. They are meant to be passed down the generations and treasured for decades to come. If you don’t want the photos of your family that hang on your grandchildren’s wall one day to be iPhone photos, I’d love to begin planning your dream photo session with you.
