Yesterday I had a wonderful time doing a maternity session with Donielle and Brad. We did a really in-depth session, spending some time outdoors in Forest Park and some time in studio. The time just flew by! I loved how Brad called Donielle by the affectionate nickname “Donny” and looked after her by letting her sit on his lap outside in the spots that were still slightly damp from Tuesday’s rain. I loved that Donielle came with some ideas of her own for the photo shoot (she even hand painted some blocks with the baby’s name, but since the name is a secret for now, I promised not to share those!), but they were also both open to my ideas and suggestions and pretty much game for anything! They are an adorable couple and were easy going and great to work with. Here are just a few of my favorites from our session. I’m looking forward to photographing the family of three once the baby gets here… judging by his parents, he is sure to be precious!
