This is an amazingly Romantic Maternity Session, don’t you agree?
I am always blown away by how romantic maternity photography can be. These sessions are always so dreamy! And I am obsessed with the spring colors! I just There were so many different colored leaves to pick from for backdrops in this setting. I can’t even pick a favorite to photograph, they are all beautiful creations from God. And I love being able to combine it with God’s newest precious gifts – new babies.
“As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed in a mother’s womb, so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.” Ecclesiastes 11:5 NIV
Does that verse not exactly describe this gallery of photos?
God’s design of the trees (and all of creation), the path of the wind, and how pregnancy works. We can’t being to understand, but we can view it and adore it. We can give admiration and praise to our God.
Every time I look at these photos, I am in such awe of how our Maker of all things has designed the Earth.
Locations for Romantic Maternity Photography:
Okay, there are so many places around the Chicago area and surrounding towns, but there are only a handful of places that can create such amazing and romantic maternity sessions.
The first locations has to be the Morton Arboretum, in Lisle, IL. I provide a lot of sessions to areas in the suburbs, including Lisle, Hinsdale, La Grange and Elmhurst, but by far and away, Lisle’s Morton Arboretum is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!
It’s all about the time of year, too!
Spring Maternity Photography is about timing;)
Okay, here’s the list:
- You have to be pregnant
- you have to be pregnant in Spring
- You have to be pregnant in Spring, live in driving distance to the Arboretum, have a photographer that has access to the permit system, apply and receive your permit, and of course have the perfect sunset.
- All of the above, but it has to be on a WEEKDAY!
So why the list? Well I absolutely love photographing here, but it doesn’t always work with client’s schedules. If it does though, I highly suggest we plan your romantic maternity photography around this location;)
Location Location Location…fees?
Yup! There’s always a fee for everything right? Fortunately I don’t require that we meet here, but if you do, we definitely need to apply for the permit. It does cost an additional $50 (as long as it’s just the 3 of us) which is a discount I can get due to the membership I have with the Arboretum!
So check out this amazing romantic maternity session that we photographed at the Morton Arboretum!
