I’m always so honored to be asked to photograph the major milestones of a couple’s life. I was so honored to photograph Jenay and Daevon’s summer maternity session at Stony Creek Metropark one month before they met their precious little Desirae. These two were a 2018 wedding couple of mine and years later, I can’t get over the brightness of Jenay’s smile – the BEST!
Stony Creek Metropark is great for a summer maternity session but truly the park is popular for good reason. It’s great in every season (see those tall pine trees) and since the park is so big, there are numerous spots to use, though the tall pines are the most popular! For this summer maternity session, we got the most amazing golden hour sunset – doesn’t Jenay just look incredible?
Many clients skip the maternity session and decide on just newborn photos, but I think there’s just a sense of anticipation in a maternity session. Much like engagement photos, there’s always this palpable anticipation that you can’t re-create later on. Maybe it’s just me and my photo-loving self, but if you’re on the fence, take the photos.
And if you’re looking for something to wear, I highly recommend Pink Blush Maternity. Their stylish outfits come in a variety of sizes – you know I love a plus size friendly brand!
