Elm Creek Park Reserve | Summer Maternity Session

I am a mother who finds all things pregnancy and motherhood miraculous. And so, maternity sessions are naturally always a special treat for me. 

The excitement of new life is always palpable; and then capturing the love that parents feel for their child, even before they meet their little one, is truly awe-inspiring.

This particular maternity session was even more special to me, because Jessie is an old friend of mine. I have known her for many years, and recently reconnected with her at a wedding I was photographing. We hadn’t seen each other in years, except for maybe on FaceBook and then boom, there we were, face-to-face in a bridal suite re-connecting over our past memories!

Fast forward to a few months later, and here we are capturing her most gorgeously, precious baby-bump! 

The night of her maternity session, the forecast called for imminent thunderstorms. So, Jessie & Rob requested if we could meet about an hour earlier for their session. Thankfully, I was available, and we were able to keep the date.

As it turns out, it didn’t rain for their whole session, AND, the storm did not show up until right after we left the park – PHEW! That was a close one!

Anyway, Jessie & Rob are welcoming a little baby girl into the world this August, and I just couldn’t be more enthusiastically excited for them. They are already exceptional doggy parents to their little dog, Bella. So, I just know, instinctively, that these two will be great parents! 

Congratulations again, Jessie & Rob! 

I am so happy I got to spend some time with you both during this very special season of your life – oh and Jessie, you are a beautiful momma! Can’t wait to meet your baby girl at her newborn session in August! EEK!
