We photographed Isis at 34 weeks pregnant, with her husband Austin by her side. These two welcomed baby Isadora in January and while they are navigating newborn life, we figured it was the perfect time to share her maternity session. Becoming parents is one of life’s greatest challenges and rewards. While capturing Isis and Austin, we talked about what it was like to be expectant parents and attempted to share our best parenting advice…. (our only real tip: you learn as you go!)
Every time we photograph a mother-to-be, we are reminded of both the beauty and strength of pregnancy.
Lindsay, after being pregnant with each of our two kids, can attest that every woman feels differently about being pregnant and it definitely comes with it’s ups and downs. But no matter what, pregnancy is a unique time in life and unlike anything a woman has ever experienced.
We feel such an honor to document and create timeless maternity portraits of the moms that enter our studio. Not to mention, we have the privilege to photograph some of their weddings first! Many of our couples call us for maternity photos and it’s truly such a pleasure to document them through these different stages in life.
We wanted to give Austin and Isis both timeless and creative maternity portraits. Photos that expressed the wonder, joy, beauty, and gift of pregnancy and the journey into parenthood. Hope you enjoy them, and congrats to Austin, Isis and baby Isa!
