Even though I’ve been stuck in bed for the past month, I got permission to sneak out for a quick “mini” maternity shoot 2 weeks ago and am so glad I was able to! It was so important to me to have some photos to document this special time in our lives as we await our first baby.
Since this is my first time experiencing a true Pacific Northwest fall season of gorgeous colors (California gets very little color change in most parts), I thought it would be so fun to use the beautiful leaves and colors as the backdrop for our photos. The morning of our shoot was incredibly foggy and cold so I was a bit unsure about how the photos would turn out, but our photographer, Carolyn Kipper, was AMAZING! She recommended Wright Park in downtown Tacoma for the setting which was absolutely perfect, and she guided us through the photoshoot capturing some very sweet and genuine moments between my hubby and I. We are so excited to have her as the photographer for our newborn shoot too in just a few weeks :)
Here are a few of our favorites from the maternity shoot!
