Shelby, Adam and Rhett Maternity

January 19, 2020

I love capturing maternity sessions with the whole family! I think it's so fun to get photos of a family before another addition. Shelby and Adam were actually my first engagement session I ever captured back in college! I'm pretty sure we did the trade for a case of beer haha. I think this session has many more wall worthy images.

For this session, we were actually planning for an outdoor glowing winter sunrise. As usual, the weather had different ideas for us with some freezing temps the morning of our shoot. Luckily, I had a back up plan of using the Como Zoo Conservatory. This is easily a little gem of a photo location in Minneapolis!! They charge to use the space by the half hour, but it was worth every penny to get the amazing greenery in all the images. I think there was something special about taking photos of Shelby's growing baby bump surrounded by growing plant babies. 

Despite the super cold weather, we decided to venture out at the end for a few pics in the snow as well. I'm really happy with the combo of the greenery and the white out. I was also very impressed with how long Rhett let me take pics of him before he was tuckered out. :) Can't wait to see this family grow to a crew of 4!!
