Enchanting! – by a Maternity Photographer in the Chicago Suburbs

Can you say Enchanting?!

I am in love with maternity photography, and I think I’ve mentioned this before. I’ve begun to lean towards the more enchanting maternity photography styles, where the expecting moms get to dress up and experience a night full of bliss and excitement towards this special time.

Enchantment, meaning:
1. To subject to magical influence; bewitch:
2. To delight to a high degree
3. To impart a magic quality or effect to.

I know you don’t need a grammar lesson from me, but I wanted to share something with you. I want you to pour yourself into this session just like I did.

From the very moment this beautiful couple emerged from their car in the parking lot, I knew I was going to love them. Everything about this session was perfect, from the way they were dress, to the weather we had that day. They both had expressions of joy and definite charm that I admired. I greeted them by letting them know how wonderful they looked and
I knew by how they responded in such a delicate but cheery way that this session, like many before it, was going to be unique. I am not sure if you ever feel this way when talking to complete strangers. You get a sense of comfort and also wonderment, its enchanting.

Maternity Photography is only the start

For a couple of reasons, one of my favorite types of sessions, are maternity sessions. Because of the order and nature of maternity sessions, they start their session off the upcoming year of newborn, milestone and family sessions. This gives me a chance to really get to know my clients. The hour or so that we meet, we are constantly chatting about their life and work and romance between them. I love hearing the backstory of my clients. I want to get to know them before the baby arrives. This is the quiet before the storm. This is the very quiet hour, where I get to peek into their lives before they have one of the most dedicated jobs a person can undertake.

I have such admiration for these couples!

I have so much admiration for this couple and I can’t wait to meet their baby boy Gavin in a few short weeks. And for me, that’s the biggest compliment a client can give me, is coming back for more sessions through the years. I believe its so important to not just deliver the beautiful images but also have a lasting impression on my clients, and build that relationship from the very start. I love getting to know all my amazing clients, because it helps me remember and think about them throughout the years we meet! Check out the below enchanting maternity photography that I did for this beautiful couple. xoxo

about abigail

Hi! I’m Abigail. You can call me Abbey, all my friends do:)

I'm a Chicago based professional newborn photographer. I also love photographing maternity, children and family sessions!

I was born and raised in the Chicagoland area, in a small town in the suburbs called Western Springs. I couldn’t suggest it more! I dream about moving to the West Coast, California specifically.

My blog is a mix of galleries, journals, stories from my travels, and the behind the scenes of my life as a professional photographer.
