These two expectant parents joined me for a maternity session in Gage Park on August 23rd, 2017. I could feel their joy and excitement for the little bundle due to join them on October 18th.
At 32 weeks, Jessica was radiant in her hunter green dress and blue maxi dress. It’s hard to believe that initially she was worried about looking “silly”! Jordan & Jessica wanted “classy photos, but also some casual and comfortable ones.” She was hoping for photos that almost had an ‘ethereal’ look.
They chose to bring a book as a prop (Goodnight, Mr. Darcy), because Jessica loves to read. There was no denying the love these two had for each other, along with the connection they felt to their growing baby.
Jessica said, “Every morning before he (Jordan) goes to work, he kisses my belly and tells baby good bye. He also took over the cooking!” Jessica has maintained a healthy, smooth pregnancy by staying active with running, getting lots of sleep and enjoying setting up her baby’s room. She’s also had cravings for potato salad and french fries, which is clearly just what the baby ordered!
Her advice to other mamas-to-be thinking about doing a maternity session? “I wouldn’t do photos much later than 32 weeks, as your mobility becomes a bit more limited!” After asking them what they thought of their session they stated, “It was a fantastic experience. Jennifer is professional and personable, so you always feel at ease and comfortable. She had a lot of great ideas, was open to suggestions from us, and put together a session that was a lot of fun.”
It was a pleasure to shoot this couple and bring their ideas for their session to life! Wishing them the very best as they anticipate the arrival of their sweet little one next month (no name yet as they do not yet know the gender).
