A Winter Maternity Session
Whimsical, Winter, and Wind.
Who needs snow when you have love,
Beautiful Maternity Session showing the love these two share- check!
Outdoors and incorporate that rustic feel they both are drawn to- check!
Snow- ugh. Darn it, Michigan. Fail.
February in Michigan and it’s 40 degrees out! Not what we expected, not what we planned for, but we made the best of it and still came away with breathtaking images that held that winter feeling.
We showed up to our location and it was a mud pit! But I knew the hidden beauty it had to offer so we suffered though it. We drug our gear and props out of my jeep and Bridget helped Careena through the rough terrain. We swapped big comfy boots out for heels at the last minute and then we started shooting.
The wind only appeared to be a pin in between shots. When it caught Careena’s hair just right, and flung that beautiful dress around, it was totally worth it. The frozen pond mimicked an icy wonderland even without the snow, and the trees far off in the background are almost reminiscent of mountains. Winter was with us, just in a different way.
We changed outfits and headed deeper in to the woods. I totally believe fairytales come to life there, and this example doesn’t prove me wrong.
I loved watching Bridget take care of Careena. Helping her balance, guiding her to walk in her heals, brushing the hair out of her face, and cuddling up behind her with a grip that showed she was there to make everything easy and ok.
Careena was a beauty to watch. Her smile was genuine, her eyes told you what words weren’t spoken, and when she had the opportunity to get a few shots of just her alone and the baby bump, and new woman came out. Strong and fierce.
Take a look and enjoy. <3
