Gayle and Michael Maternity

February 1, 2020

I met Gayle and Michael in college and have loved watching their love story unfold. They really are the perfect combo. Michael is a crazy adrenaline junky who will never shy away from a stunt and Gayle is the most easy going, lighthearted life of the party with her positive attitude. At my sisters wedding, they were of course the ones lighting up the dance floor and getting the party started.

I was so happy when they wanted me to capture their maternity session and knew I needed to make sure it captured both of their spirits. They had the best location idea of Michael's parents home in Monticello, MN. They had huge fields, ponds, gorgeous trees and more. It was basically a photographers playground. Without skipping a beat when I arrived, Michael pulled out their Ranger, Gayle came out of the house in her gorgeous maternity gown and we all hopped on with their golden retriever pup at our feet. 

This was probably the most fun maternity session I've shot as we cruised around the grounds getting stuck and whipping snow all around. I applaud Gayle for her laid back spirit and just had to capture a few pics of them cruising around! I can't wait to meet their little babe in just a few short weeks.
