Uptown Normal Maternity

One of my biggest regrets was not having Seth take some real maternity photos of me. At the time, I felt (and who are we kidding-looked) huge, but now looking back, I remember being pregnant fondly. Not fondly enough to do it ever again, but it was a nice little stage of life and I wish I had a few non iPhone-in-a-mirror pictures. So I really encourage women to get out there and grab a few shots. For nostalgia. You don't ever have to hang them up in your house, but honestly, I know your child is going to love that photo someday. You anxiously awaiting their arrival and already loving them more than you can understand. 

I include a little mini maternity session with our newborn session. You don't need 2 hours of maternity pictures and if you want to get out your nude jumpsuit and floral crown like queen B, maybe you find a different photog. :) I try to keep it super simple and fun. Not lots of props and signs and outfits and locations. Just a few with your partner so you can really remember......

And without further ado, Julia & Richard. The smiliest, warmest, totally awesome & wonderful people. We shot their wedding and BOWLING reception a few years ago. Yea, that's right. Bowling. Like I said, AWESOME. They are having a little boy here soon and I can't wait to go snuggle and photograph him. 

I love urban settings, especially in winter when everything is kinda dead. But the colors in uptown Normal are some of my favorites. 

So if you are looking for a lifestyle photographer, here I am baby. Shoot me a line and let's get out there!
