Today’s Throwback Thursday blog post is a maternity session from last Summer. It’s one of my favorite maternity shoots to date! Jenny and Zack are an awesome couple who both excel in helping people be better versions of themselves. They are very passionate about health and fitness and pass on those traits, not only to clients, but to their kids as well. This adorable baby bump is gone now and Jenny is working hard to get back to her old self. But I hope she doesn’t forget how beautiful she was during the pregnancy that led to the sweetest, chillest baby boy, Knoxxwell Knight!
We got everything covered with this family session! Maternity, family and little Grayson on his own. I first had the pleasure of photographing Alli and Michael when she was expecting her first baby boy, and now they are preparing for baby boy number 2! A maternity session with kids is a totally different experience than one with just mom and dad. I’m sure Alli would agree! Grayson did awesome though. He has the most adorable smile and gorgeous wavy blonde hair. Such a handsome little guy. I know their next son will be just as handsome and I can’t wait to meet him!
Alli and Michael are looking forward to welcoming a baby boy in January, which is coming up fast! I love documenting this time in an expecting couple's lives - the anticipation of the unkown, love filled hearts, and pure excitement of what's to come is captivating. It was a casual and laid back shoot; I enjoyed chatting with the Voss's as we strolled through Bickelhaupt Arboretum in Clinton, Iowa. I asked the age-old question, "Are you guys ready for this?!" And of course, they will be totally ready when he arrives! Alli and Michael enoyed their last moments in the spotlight before baby comes, which is something they'd recommend to any couple planning a maternity shoot! Just relax and enjoy your time together. Keeping it simple and natural helps capture the true essence of your relationship. It will be fun to look back on and show these pictures to your child someday.
