Training Days | Chicago Maternity Photographer

Training Days | Abigail Joyce Photography

Hey friends,wrapping up this month's maternity photos and in just a couple more days and I will be heading to Spokane, Washington for my hike. I can't express the excitement I have! I will be with friends and (future) family - Ben my Fiance and his brothers, Mark and Joe along with Allie, and Markus and possibly some more Friends :).

20150310_164023Ben and I have been training for the past couple of weeks and it's been quite intense. Every night I am climbing stairs for 40ish minutes with 20-25 lbs on my back. I hope I am prepared enough for this hike! There will be days on this adventure that I will be hiking for 13 miles per day! It will also be raining most of the time (better than snowing I guess). 1 week from today, I will be on my first plane ride! That's another concern on my mind!! Any advice for a first timer?? This is quite the trip for 2015, my first hike and first plane ride!!

A P.S. about the Maternity Photos

PS.  Aren't these maternity photos just gorgeous?? Aimee, you are beautiful and your family is nothing short of wonderful. There daughter is named Victoria, (which is my sisters name) and what a crazy coincidence that I met up with my sister right after this session?? My sister lives downtown and I picked her up so we could go grab my wedding gown which was ready that day!! I'm so glad I was able to photograph your Maternity Photos!Maternity Photos captured at Lincoln Park Zoo during winter

About Maternity Photos

Maternity Photos can be captured year round! You don't need to be pregnant in just summer or spring, but I have photographed many amazing and romantic winter maternity sessions. If you do find yourself pregnant and expecting during the winter or late spring months, there are still amazing locations that we can meet both indoor and outdoor, providing beautiful galleries year round!
