This St. Louis City maternity photography session was a lot of fun! These expecting parents are so in love with each other and with their baby boy they created together. Since this couple spends a lot of time at restaurants on Washington Street and at the Landing, we decided this downtown location would be the perfect backdrop for their maternity portraits. The colors and textures of the City added some interest and the archways mimicked the glorious growing belly of this mom-to-be. Pregnancy is such a special and intimate time in a couple’s journey together. Creating images like this is always an honor and an exciting time! I love how these two cuddled together and talked about their plans as a family once their baby arrived. Dad-to-be video taped certain parts of the photography session as he was documenting the pregnancy so they could remember all the important moments. It was super cute as he explained to their son what mommy was doing and how stunning she is. I even got to say “hi” to the lil’ guy on video, which was a privilege to be included in their video journal. This couple’s excitement is quite contagious and I think shines through their maternity portraits.
