Maria's maternity session was taken on a farm in Marengo, Iowa near the Amana Colonies. We used some beautiful country fields for the backdrop of and took advantage of the golden light on the summer evening. This is her first baby and as she was getting ready for the session we were talking about the fact that this is HER MOMENT. Her time to bask in the fact that she is about to be a new mom and have a sweet little baby in her arms. Maternity photos are so much more than standing in front of the camera, it’s the realization of a blessing and a moment in your life that you will never get back. I have such a passion for photography because it tells the story of your life, your family. Time goes too quickly and these moments are too precious, I want you to soak them up. Here are just some of my favorites from our impromptu mini session.
