To say this session was a dream is an understatement. Momma reached out to me about a month ago wanting a session in two weeks. Thankfully I had the date she wanted available, and she booked right away! When we started planning her Chantilly maternity photo session, mom mentioned to me that none of my dresses fit her vision so she ended up providing her own dress (again totally ok for clients to do).

Come to find out, what she wanted to wear was the most beautiful fluffy robe that looked absolutely amazing on her! Funny thing is, I had been eyeing beautiful tulle robes like hers for a while but decided to wait until I could get into a studio space to buy them for my clients. But boy did she show me that these robes can be rocked on location too! With the addition of a body suit for modesty, mom looked absolutely stunning during her session at Ellanor C. Lawrence Park!

I probably squealed about a million times during her maternity session because I was so excited about how beautiful she looked and how gorgeous the photos were turning out haha! Have I mentioned that I’m your personal hype girl during your session? I hope every mom feels that energy while I’m taking their photos because boy do I love my job!

Then mom also mentioned that she had a second outfit! Thankfully we had plenty of time to accommodate a second outfit, and she just wanted a few in that outfit anyway. Let me tell you, GODDESS VIBES! So we took what remaining light we had and made some more magic in a few more spots at E.C. Lawrence!

It was such a pleasure being surprised by this mom’s outfit choices! And as always, I love getting to chat with moms as we are going about the session. Getting to know you and your story is all part of our journey together, and it is one of my favorite parts, besides helping you look and feel like a million bucks of course!
