Just me and my baby // Baraboo maternity photographer

I’m putting together an image box for this mama with her 2012 family photos, and I realized I never shared photos from her maternity session.

It’s nice to think back on that summer evening, when she left her two darlings under the age of 4 at home and came for a drive in the country with me, relaxing in fields and meandering through apple orchards and showing how beautiful she was just before her third baby arrived.

I think a big part of a maternity session is not just getting those final images. It’s also about the process of slowing down for a few hours, honoring where your body and your life is at during this amazing time, and having someone else recognize the beauty in you that you may not always see yourself.
