Beauty and Grace | Chicago Maternity Portraits

She is a reflection of grace in a season of excitement, anticipation, and wonder. Together, they are one of the most tender, gentle and loving couples I've had the good fortune to photograph.

Before you were born I loved you

Characteristics of a Mother | Chicago Maternity Photographer

Perfection shines through a wonderful, strong, and courageous woman. It takes all of these to become a mother. Even the imperfect only shines in her beauty and poise.

Even in darkness you can see the beauty in this woman. Living in the city with two boys so close in age  presents the wildest of adventures -- and the best of memories. chicagomaternityphoto

BEcoming | Chicago Maternity Photographer

You all know I've had 5 babies of my own. What you probably don't know is that I never did any pregnancy portraits myself. I thought about it, but ... let's just say I look better on the other side of the camera ;) . However, I am so lucky ... we do get the most beautiful pregnant Chicago moms. This stunning client was no exception. She was so easy to work with, and such a pleasure to photograph. And, of course, so beautiful. I'll probably post some more from this session at a later date, because there are quite a few that I just love. Mama to be in the picture below ... I hope you are feeling well and enjoying your last few weeks preggo!!! :)
