A few short weeks ago I met this beautiful couple for a maternity photo session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens; the weather was great, we got to use several adorable props and ideas for some of the shots and everybody had a great time! It was still a couple of weeks before cherry trees bloomed in Meadowlark, but we managed to get some beautiful flowery and sunlit backgrounds so beautiful for belly pictures!

Here, I told them to just hold an empty frame and I could photoshop in any message/words/due date. And then I changed my mind and asked mommy to scribble the due date – oh my! – I totally love her handwriting and art!

As I am writing this post, I am happy to report that their little baby born was a week before the due date and I met them for the newborn session at my McLean studio this week! The little man was super handsome and did so well during the session – I can’t believe how many different setups he let me photograph and I can’t wait to show mom and dad all the beautiful shots we got!

Sharing a couple of photos from a maternity photo session at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. Now, those who know me know that I LOVE Meadowlark. I recommend it for most of my outdoor sessions, and this one was no exception. We were planning to have the shoot during cherry blossoms, and even ended up pushing the session by a week to try and catch at least some blooming flowers. Unfortunately, mother Nature had other plans and cherries bloomed late this year. This beautiful mommy being 38 weeks pregnant, we decided not to wait any longer and do the session anyways. Meadolwark was pretty bare, but we still got some beautiful shots and we also had a great, fun time during the session as well:)
