Last Sunday, I met Rachel and Steve at their home in Chicago for some maternity pictures. Just from spending a short amount of time with these two, I could see how excited they are for their first baby. Rachel’s eyes light up every time she talks about being a mom, and her excitement was contagious.

After making guesses as to what sex their little bundle of joy is (I think boy!), we headed to a nearby park to brave the cool (ok, very, very cold) November temperatures.
Rachel + Steve – Congratulations again. You are going to be amazing parents! Thank you for rearranging your whole house for your pregnancy photographs and for being troopers in the cold. :)

When I first talked to Abby on the phone, I had a good feeling about working with her. I heard what she said, what her concerns were and was confident that I would create beautiful maternity photos minus the “cheese factor”. I met Abby and her husband, Chris on a Sunday afternoon near Ohio Street Beach, and I was so pumped to spend a couple hours taking photos of their first pregnancy.

Chris + Abby were SO much fun. I literally felt like I had known them for years, and as I packed up my gear and left their gorgeous apartment (with the best view of Lake Michigan…ever), I was sad that our session was over. I know they are going to make amazing parents to the little girl they are expecting in October. The whole time during our session they both would make the sweetest comments and faces at all the little babies.

Congrats to you both! I’m so excited that I was able to capture this moment for you both.
