Long Grove IL maternity photographer

This beautiful momma I first met when I photographed her family a few years back and it’s always so fun for me to see families grow like this.  And this session couldn’t have come at a better time since her new little girl wanted to party early and arrived just a few weeks after her maternity session!  Surprise!!!  I always recommend that maternity sessions are to be done around the 32-35 week mark (which we did this around 33 weeks) and she went into labor about 2.5 weeks later!!!  Perfect timing, right? (ps. I am also pregnant so those numbers may be off.  Maybe Joy can correct me if that’s the case).

And look at that face on the to-be big sister!  She is soooo excited to be a big helper when her sister arrives.  I am so sure she’s going to help with all the diaper changes, right mom and dad?
